The Winner(s) of the 2014 Mix March Madness Webcomics Tournament Are…
…first and foremost, the Hero Initiative. Thanks to you, the Hero Initiative has raised over $700 to help comic creators in need. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
Second, all the participants in the tournament. We were getting widespread reports of traffic spikes at many sites, and we saw thousands of clicks away from our sites to various webcomics. We hope that you have discovered a few new strips that you enjoy and can follow.
Third, what do you think of our Ryan Seacrest impersonation? We spent a lot of time looking at him to see how we could stretch out the time before we announce the winner.
But we can delay no longer!
This last round was a biggie, with 656 votes for Paranatural and 612 votes for Grrl Power. But this round was also the biggest cash round, with $164 in paid votes coming in– even more impressive with votes costing 50¢ each for the final round.
But in the end, with $49 for Paranatural and $115 for Grrl Power, the final tally is 842-754 — GRRL POWER WINS!
Congratulations to creator Dave Barrack, and thank you all for playing along with us. Come back in two weeks or so for the start of May Mayhem, our NSFW Webcomics Tournament! We’ll be taking your nominations, and this time revenue from votes will be going to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund! See you then!
