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!

It’s the Mix March Madness 2014 Webcomics Tournament Sweet 16! Vote now!

UPDATE 3/31: Round 4 is over. Vote in the Elite 8 round now!

UPDATE 3/28 Midnight: We swear, we don’t know how it happened. But we screwed up the totals from Round 3 on a few of the contests, and reported the wrong winners in some contests.

First, our apologies to Grrl Power and Awkward Zombie for misreporting their results, and our apologies to Order Of The Stick and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal for getting their hopes up. Sorry, folks.

Now, how we’re going to solve the problem: we’re going to replace the strips in the contests, and ComicMix is buying votes to match the current votes for Widdershins (72) and Monsterkind (143), effectively setting the contests at dead even. This allows us to start a new poll right now, which makes the contest even again.

Because of the late start, we’ll extend the voting time for this contest to Sunday at midnight.

Again, our apologies to all concerned.

Round 3 is over, and we’ve raised another $153 for the Hero Initiative. Now we’re down to the webcomics Sweet 16! Round 4 of the Mix March Madness 2014 Webcomics Tournament starts now!

People are now beginning to buy the winning votes, making the difference for Dick Ruby and Widdershins— so get your votes in early and get your friends in too.

In deference to the folks at Emerald City Comic Con voting lasts until Midnight Pacific Time on Saturday, March 29! Here are the latest standings…

It’s Round 3 of the Mix March Madness 2014 Webcomics Tournament!

UPDATE 3/27: Round 3 is over– vote in the Sweet 16 now!

Congratulations to everyone who made it through Round 2, and we’ve raised another $50 for the Hero Initiative. But now it gets even tougher, as we’re down to only 32 webcomics… and this is after the tightest round in Mix March Madness history, with three contests decided by two votes or less, and our first ever tie that required a run-off election!  So we now know that every vote counts, from you and all your friends, so make sure to share and tweet about it, because Round 3 of the Mix March Madness 2014 Webcomics Tournament starts now! Voting lasts until Midnight EDT on Wednesday, March 26! Here are the latest standings…
