The people have spoken, and the brackets are ready for the Mix March Madness 2016 Webcomics Tournament!
Thanks to the thousands of people who voted in the seeding process, as well as all of you who added your favorite webcomics to the list. We’re adding all of the webcomics you suggested to our directory.
But now, the challenges start! Let’s go!
First, some housekeeping details: There have been a few last minute disqualifications and a few retirements. As such, the numbers look a bit different than the voting rounds might suggest.
Second, we’ve had $25 in bought votes… so far. Again, all money goes to the Hero Initiative.
Finally, here are the brackets. As usual, we’re dividing the candidates into four divisions. This year’s divisions are Anderson, Obadiah, Ryan, and Trimpe. As we didn’t have a clean break, the top six seeds have a Bye round.
Mix March Madness 2016 ROUND 1
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 is 20¢ a vote, with a minimum of five 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.)
Voting ends at midnight Eastern Time on Wednesday night, March 30! Good luck to everyone!
