Welcome to the SMBC Wiki!
This site was modeled after explainxkcd.com and requires a lot of work, such as adding transcripts and explanations, documenting recurring characters, and making the site look less like xkcd.

Pages up to the latest comic have been created, but almost all of them still need proper transcripts and explanations. For comics without manually created transcripts, a bot has been run to generate transcripts automatically using AWS's Textract. These transcriptions have a lot of errors, but they are somewhat sufficient for searching for comics by text.

For those who want to contribute: The most helpful thing you could do is add basic explanations to comics that explain references, such as linking to external sites that define terms, explaining who mentioned real people are, and pointing out references to science or philosophy topics. Don't worry too much about keeping style or voice consistent across the wiki, that can be looked over later, and the primary goal right now is giving at least something helpful for people who might not be familiar with the topics SMBC references.

You can add a redirect to Wikipedia by using the format {{w|Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal|SMBC}}, which as an example creates the following link: SMBC

There is also a Discord server at https://discord.gg/ARxyyTEzr7, which is to be used for broad coordination and planning, though all that gets discussed on there should eventually be explained on public facing wiki pages as well.

Explanation[edit]

"If you were a patreon subscriber, you would be seeing my magnum opus at this very moment." - Zach's blog from the day before.

A red ball buries itself in the neck of a man out running, swallowed by his skin.

The man is seen in his socks and underwear, then with a deteriorating fever.

His face shows anger/fear/confusion/pain as his stomach appears to move on its own from the inside.

In the final scene, three miniature clowns are seen bursting from his stomach. (This is likely a reference to the "chest burst" scene in the film Alien)


This is also part of Zach's larger oeuvre describing Clowns as a species.
