When Pixels Find New Life on Real Paper

My first thought (as I'm sure yours was) was "But... tool tip? Hello!"

Don't worry, they have a solution:

One trick in transferring the material from online to print has been how to recreate the “title text” that comments on the strip when your cursor hovers over it.

“It’s not supposed to be a punch line, but hopefully if you didn’t laugh, you’ll laugh at this,” he said. The title text will appear where the tiny copyright notice would appear on a traditional strip.

I was just saying to maswan yesterday "I wonder why the xkcd guy doesn't do a book?" That's me... my finger on the pulse of the internet. Companies should give me lots of money for that kind of predictive power.
