Yes, alt-texts only appeared since the beginning of the first Spo arc.

Formatting Notes:
- Feel free to tell me if there are any mistakes or anything missing
- The alt-texts are ordered by date, from the newest (top) to the oldest (bottom)
- Due to the irregular pattern of some one-offs, I decided to merge the one-offs with their previous arc. This includes holiday bonus, so you have to search them by date, title, or closest arc if you are looking for those
- One-offs, bonus, or intermissions during an arc are separated by lines, this includes the second wave of guest comics during the beginning of arc 41 (when Rick's laptop was busted)
- All entries contain date and title. Unfortunately, for readers of the book you will have determine the arc by yourself and search by the closest one
- The single one-off right after Guest Week 1! and right before arc 39 is merged with arc 39
- Arc 27.5 is placed right after arc 27 despite it appeared later than arc 29

Sounds interesting, perhaps the fans have interesting alt-texts for the comic.

However, I am not sure if this thread is the right place for that. Since I wouldn't attempt to make a compendium for fan-made alt-texts! :P
