UPDATE: Round 4 has ended. Check back soon for the Quarterfinals Round!
Here we go again… it’s Round 4 of the Mix March Madness 2013 Webcomics Tournament!
Now… it starts to get brutal.
We’ve gone from over 300 webcomics down to the Sweet 16. We’ve raised over $750 for the Hero Initiative in this round alone, so far you’ve bought over $1500 in votes. Voting for this round lasts until 9PM EDT on Wednesday, March 20, so get your votes in.
We’re now getting to the point where money is beginning to be a big influence in contests, with an additional 40% of votes purchased. It made the difference in a number of contests, making winners out of Grrl Power, Commander Kitty, Unsounded, Weregeek, and Bittersweet Candy Bowl.
But that was the last round– what are they going to do this time around? It’s all in your hands now!
Again, we’re letting you support your favorite strips by paying for additional votes, with your money going to charity. Simply click on the Donate button below, and during checkout, click on “Which comic are you donating for?” and tell us who you’re voting for. The price for this round is going up to 25¢ a vote, with a minimum of four votes purchased at a time, split any way you want. All proceeds from paid votes will go to the Hero Initiative, an organization that helps comic book creators in need. At the close of the round, we’ll add the paid votes to the totals and announce the winners who move on to the brackets. (And yes, your donations to Hero are tax deductible.)
Here are the updated brackets for the Bradbury, Kubert, Sendak, and Washington divisions…
