2013 Mix March Madness Webcomics Tournament Nominations Are Now Open!
Yes, it’s that time of year again, where we take the best webcomics and put them head to head to highlight the incredible diversity of work out in the comics world, to raise money for various comics charities, and to have fun while doing it– time for the Mix March Madness Webcomics Tournament!
As usual, we always think we’ve gotten a good list together of webcomics– our directory lists three hundred webcomics right now which are going to the seeding round– but we always seem to miss a few newcomers, or strips that have just fallen under our radar for whatever reason. So we’re asking you: what strips have we missed? Just add them in comments below with links to the site.
Our criteria for including them in the contest are pretty simple and broad:
- They have to be currently in production, by which we mean “has come out with at least one new installment since the new year”. Surprisingly, this knocks out a lot of comics.
- No paywalls. You gotta be able to read it to compare and contrast.
- No adult webcomics. We do May Mayhem for the R and X rated comics, this is for family safe material.
Get your nominations in quick, we’re closing the window at midnight Pacific Time on Thursday night and starting the seeding voting on Friday. And please, share this post far and wide so we don’t miss anyone!
I’m enjoying/nominating Bruce Quast’s “Faron Square” (www.faronsquare.com), an old-school ensemble comedy about a collapsing shopping mall. It’s currently publishing about twice a month.
Name an old video game, they’ll make a comic about it – Blow The Cartridge
Two I’d add to the list are
Badnix – video game enemies teaming up to thwart a world-destroying threat: the player
Bad Reputation – strange pirates
Bird Boy – a foundling’s tale in a surreal world of masks
Blaster Nation – the daily life of a bunch of misfits
Broodhollow – Tintin in Innsmouth
Blasphemous Saga Fantasy – JRPG-style fantasy adventures
Cleopatra in Spaaace – cheesy sci-fi adventures, unfortunately in a hiatus
Clockworks – steampunk gaming comic, in a hiatus too
Commander Kitty – the space adventures of space toons in space
Derelict – a lone woman’s drifting journey across the misty oceans of a ruined world
Fey Winds – fantasy adventures that don’t always take themselves seriously
Fox Sister – supernatural thriller based on Korean folklore
Rusy & Company – what if monsters were adventurers too?
Table Titans – the Penny Arcade / PVP comic venture about tabletop gaming
The End – alien abductees discovering galactic conspiracies
The Man of Many Shades – a hardened criminal stuck in a world created from a little girl’s drawings (not for kids)
What Birds Know – creepy fantasy
Will Save World For Gold – D&D 4 adventures in a sprite comic with its own original art (no megamans!)
Seconding Nimona and Ava’s Demon.
I’d also like to nominate Hinges
Is it too late to recommend Not A Villain (navcomic.com)?
http://invisiblecities.comicgenesis.com/ Hero is a good one.
Eat that Toast
O Human Star
SuperMutant Magic Academy
Brawl in the family
Team Society League
Married to the sea
You’re a bit late, but we’ll try to get them in there.
I know I’m late, but I’m hoping I can nominate three that aren’t on the list.
Untold Tales of Bigfoot
Tales of a Checkered Man
Yeti 4 Hire
Sadly, already on to the next round. But a few of these will probably show up in the children’s version we’ll be doing later this year.
