    Dresden Codak last updated in December, so shouldn’t it be ineligible? And Vattu (http://www.rice-boy.com/) was on the list last year, why’d it disappear?

  2. Pylgrim says:

    I hate to do this because I love Homestuck, but fair is fair and HS already has had its time on the limelight (and to be honest, Andrew Hussie can’t possibly give less of a darn about it), so: Homestuck shouldn’t be in this list, it’s been in hiatus for 6 months.

    • YAOMTC says:

      Until I clicked the link to the previous year’s contest, I didn’t even know there were rules. It looks like the author forgot to mention those, and didn’t bother checking the entries… The Adventures of Superhero Girl also hasn’t updated in quite a while, and I’m sure there’s some others. As a previous commenter stated, Dresden Codak was on the list which has since been removed.

  3. JUNK says:

    I would like to suggest Poppy O’Possum! http://www.poppy-opossum.com/ It is a darling webcomic that started only nine months ago!

  4. someone says:

    I can’t believe you’re still presenting Broodhollow as “Tintin in Innsmouth” as if it ever was its actual title.

    • Pylgrim says:

      For the record, that tag line got a reflex click from me, and though I was slightly disappointed that it was, in fact, not Tintin in Innsmouth, I’m totally hooked now.

    • AlpineBob says:

      I only clicked to check it out because you complained, so keep up the good work!

  5. Danny in Montreal says:

    You’ve got “Tales from a Multiverse” twice – “Multiverse” and “Multi Universe”

  6. I’m gone to tell my little brother, that he should also pay a quick visit this blog on regular
    basis to obtain updated from hottest information.

  7. AlpineBob says:

    Might I suggest Guns of Shadow Valley?
    Also, in no particular order (takes a deep breath): Tiziana, 164 days, Magellan, Harbormaster, Monsieur Charlatan, 3Minute Max, After Daylight, Title Unrelated, and The Bright Side?

  8. May I suggest my own Decrypting Rita? It’s about a robot lady who’s dragged outside of reality by her ex-boyfriend.

    • AlpineBob says:

      Robot lady, eh? I’ll have to check it out.
      Also:
      O Human Star is about a robot guy, and the mystery surrounding his existence. One of the main characters is a robot girl.
      But this description does not adequately convey the awesomeness of this comic…

  9. AlpineBob says:

    It annoys me slightly that the link list and vote column don’t match up (in Fox, at least). I think it may be because of the vote boxes themselves – they take up extra space. If you make the vote column another quarter inch wider, I think it would help.
    And fix the extra line feed after that title, as well.

  10. Not to complain, but rather for the sake of accuracy, the webcomic you have listed as “Gravedigger Comics” is simply called “Gravedigger.”

    “Gravedigger Comics” sounds like an anthology about people who work in cemeteries, while “Gravedigger” is actually a hardboiled crime comic.

    Also, wondering if it’s too late to request that “Perils On Planet X” (http://www.perilsonplanetx.com/) be added to the ballot?

    • Pylgrim says:

      I think you’re late with the suggestion, pal. Suggestions were welcomed in the previous round. However, it is not all lost :) You just gained a new reader.

      • Thanks, Pylgrim!

        I am glad you dug the Deep Dive Daredevils. Finding new readers, like you, is the whole reasonI hoped to be involved in this contest, so mission accomplished, I guess. :)

  11. sincerely says:

    Please consider adding Opportunities. It’s a sci-fi action story about aliens and flamboyant killers. It’s about three and a half months old, and updates twice a week.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  12. Audacity says:

    Scenes from a Multiverse is listed twice (“Scenes from a Multiverse” “Scenes from a Multi Universe”)

    It’s weird that you’ve listed John Allison’s comic under “Scary Go Round” rather than “Bad Machinery”

    • Audacity says:

      Many, many, many of these have not been updated since 2013. The list could use some pruning.

      • Pylgrim says:

        You should point out the ones you have noticed as we’ve been doing. I just noticed that the Dreamland Chronicles hasn’t updated since the last year, for example.

      • cesium133 says:

        There are a few on the list that haven’t updated in a long time. Userfriendly has been doing rerun comics since 2009.

  13. Sortelli says:

    I’d like to mention No Scrying which is a murder mystery comic set in a fantasy world. (It is done by that dork who did Elf Only Inn back in the day)

  14. Sol says:

    Really surprised to see Wolf Wears Wool in the list. It was a good comic, but it hasn’t been updated with a new page since 2012.

    Likewise, reMIND ended last year.

    There are some really worthwhile comics I’d like to suggest. If they can’t be added to the list then hopefully people will at least check them out. They’ve all updated this year, too.

    Camodad
    Feel Afraid
    14 Nights
    A Ghost Story
    Godsend
    Help Us Great Warrior!
    H&J
    Judecca
    The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
    Monster’s Garden
    O Human Star
    Spera
    SuperMutant Magic Academy

    A few of these are NSFW at times, so maybe check the “About” sections if you’re worried.

  15. pidgey says:

    Okay, Paranormal was a new one to me, so I checked it out, and it’s amazing. Definitely the best of the top twelve on that list. I say that as a fairly religious reader of most of them. And it’s thankfully out of Act 1 territory. Too many comics linger in setting up the stage for years and never actually get to the meat of the story they’re trying to tell (looking at you, Grrl Power).

    Oots, Unsounded, Dr. McNinja, EGS, and Dinosaur comics all deserve a higher spot on the list, but whatever. I check this every year for interesting new reading material and I’ve never come away disappointed. Found Ava’s Demon and Namesake through here last year (although thinking back on that I’m pretty astounded at how little progress on the plot both have made over the past year), and Unsounded the year before that.

  16. Carl-E says:

    How do you vote? There are only links to the comics… I’m confused.

    • QuoteBot says:

      The voting ends Thursday, March 13 at 11:59 PM EDT, and brackets go up on Friday, March 14!

      QuoteBot thinks you should wait for the next round.

  17. Jazyl H says:

    WOW this is Awesome. Wish I knew about it earlier so I could enter my “Beast Legion’ for it. Does this take place monthly?

    • QuoteBot says:

      Yes, it’s that time of year again, the time where bracketology reigns supreme and the cry around the nation is “Win or Go Home!” Last year’s Mix March Madness Webcomics Tournament was incredibly popular, and so we’re doing it all over again– and raising money for the Hero Initiative in the process!

      QuoteBot hopes your comic is better than your reading comprehension.

  18. Uwe says:

    In comparison, Google’s biggest deal, Motorola Mobility, stood
    at $12. And Apple adds a Twitter option under the
    contact list. These catch phrases may not have found their way into
    mainstream dictionary but there’s something called
    an Urban Dictionary.

  19. Cerita Lucu says:

    It annoys me slightly that the link list and vote column don’t match up (in Fox, at least). I think it may be because of the vote boxes themselves – they take up extra space. If you make the vote column another quarter inch wider, I think it would help.
