By the way, one of the recent Chrome updates has broken the page. The main page is loading via https, but it tries to load the CSS and most of the page images over plain HTTP, something that has been restricted in new Chromium-based browsers. You can work around it, but I figured I'd let you know so you could fix it.

Oh, that's why CSS and all composition on the page seem to be broken. I am using Firefox btw.

I had observed the same (on firefox and chrome), and was wondering about it.

There's a (temporary) workaround for Chromium-based browsers (may also work for Firefox, but may be somewhere else on the UI): upon loading the page, on the address bar there will be a little icon (shield with red x in Chrome), saying that some content has been blocked from loading, if you click that, then click "Load unsafe scripts", this'll reload the page properly. But, keep in mind, this is, well, not safe option. You've been warned.

Luckily, even with broken CSS the page, while still looking like a mess, does load the main comic. So there's that.

Yeah, that's good!
But for any potential new readers, this CSS mess may be discouraging and not giving credit to the story - that it deserves.

Sorry about the display issue. I've changed every http to https in the code and I think that fixed it :)
