I, just tried to view xkcd 1037: Umwelt

It does not show a comic.
Normally there are two rows of these buttons with a comic in between: |< Prev Random Next >|

Now these rows of buttons are directly below eachother with nothing in between, just empty space not even a little empty square with a red cross or so.

Tried from amsterdam in windows via Chrome, Firefox and IE, it looks the same on each browser.

Note: If prompted whether i wanted to see only secure content, I selected 'show all content'

Initially it showed a comic based on criteria I don't understand - browser, location, that sort of thing.

I do not believe the script is where the page believes it to be. I do not know if this is intentional.

For the record: I have the same issue from Hungary, I tried with Firefox only, because I don't have other browsers at the moment.

Unfortunately, is broken.
You can find some scraped replies at the wayback machine to piece together images using followed by any of the "url" fields in a reply.

If someone (davean?) is to fix, please make sure it's available via HTTPS too. And while you're at it, also remove the http: parts in waldo.js. That way we're not stuck with a broken comic because of 'mixed content' being blocked by our browsers.

"Umwelt" changed based on where and how you viewed it, and also apparently when. I think it's quite appropriate that it's now invisible.
