I think there actually used to be a website called "Is xkcd good today". It did exactly what the title implies.

Honestly, I don't think xkcd is that good for the most part - most of the jokes are kinda... 'reddit', I guess, I'm not sure how to describe it. There's this condescending undertone common to reddit posts that the comic often seems unable to get away from.

Sometimes there'll be strips that make me laugh, though, and every so often he puts out a strip that really wows me - like the ones with gifs that update one frame per day for a whole year. Also the adjacent series "What If?" is excellent, so I think xkcd is just barely worth putting on here. If a curators guide for this comic exists, though, you'd want it.
