  1. Go Shotgun Shuffle!

      Go Shotgun Shuffle you magnificent bastard!

      • Pat says:

        BULLY, I say. Bully. Such a dashing and ruddy young lad to be running in this competition. And the use of a shotgun no less in the title. Well, it is in reference to “K.C. & The Sunshine Band.”

    You need to fix the bribe button. When I click on it, it takes me to my PayPal homepage.

    Whoever wins, it’s been so rewarding to discover all these new webcomics I never knew about.

  4. Pat says:

    Glenn,

    Your information is not correct, Grrl Power won last year. Paranatural did pull in the vote, but Grrl Power had the donations to put them ahead in the end.

  5. Melanie Stewart says:

    There’s a mistake: the 2014 winner was GrrlPower.

    https://www.comicmix.com/2014/04/14/winners/

    “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!

  6. Laurie says:

    I donated, but I guess doing it from an iPad didn’t give me the option of choosing a comic. I did note it in the comment section in the paypal payment. Is that enough?

  7. Chris Rusche says:

    Hey Glenn,

    Are you planning on doing the final round this week? I’d like to do another art incentive. Be good to know what day you’re going to kick it off if Shotgun Shuffle can make it through.

    • Glenn Hauman says:

      That’s the plan. Hope to kick it off on Thursday, if we can tally the donations quickly enough.

      And you’ll still be in it for third place, at least.

  8. David Hat says:

    I didn’t see a place to note where my donations were going- I wanted my donation to be half Shotgun Shuffle and half Stand Still. Stay Silent.

    • Larathiel says:

      A fan of the letter “S” I see… ;-)

    • Michelle Worman says:

      I also didn’t see a place to note where I want my votes to go when donating. I want all of them to go to Stand Still, Stay Silent…

  9. Ash Blackwell says:

    I hate saying something about this in the open without privately messaging you all about it first, but I just can’t find a place to message y’all that might be answered quickly and is private.

    There are huge discrepancies between times refreshing the vote results here. In a 2 minute period I got

    Not a Villain 1462
    Stand Still. Stay Silent 1498
    Girl Genius 1078
    Shotgun Shuffle 926

    then

    Not a Villain 1484
    Stand Still. Stay Silent 1579
    Girl Genius 1100
    Shotgun Shuffle 1054

    and then

    Not a Villain 1574
    Stand Still. Stay Silent 1529
    Girl Genius 1097
    Shotgun Shuffle 934

    in that order. The insane swings in the vote totals are already being discussed in more than one of the competing comic comments sections. I don’t know what the problem is with your poll software, but you may wish to speak with the programmers quickly to see what can be done to fix it.

    Hello, similarly to the two persons above, I had a problem when making my donation, as it didn’t lead me anywhere I could specify who I was making the donation for; I wanted it to go to Stand Still Stay Silent, please.

    • pat says:

      You might want to check your receipt that you got from the donation, and send a copy of it to Glenn via email along with the comic that your donation is for.
