899 Got Your Gun.


Let’s see, first things first, tomorrow by which I mean March 20th is the comic’s 5th(?) birthday.  (And my 36th…  I think.)  Not bad considering its humble beginnings.  I have no special plans for the occasion, but I thought I’d make note of it all the same. 

I’d like to thank all of you who voted in the comic contest thing.  It was 920 to 604 in our favor, so not too shabby.  The bad news is that Dr. McNinja got 2,626 votes last round…  So that’s not good.  I’m glad the comic didn’t get eliminated in the first round.  I’m sure that all the other competitors will do the only honorable thing and commit ritual suicide, in accordance with the webcomic’s code.  So fewer adversaries next year.  :D 

They haven’t posted the next thing yet, as far as I know, but TickNinja is likely our last stand. (edit: here’s the new link. http://www.comicmix.com/news/2012/03/19/mix-march-madness-2012-webcomics-tournament-round-2-vote-now/ )  People who don’t know webcomics know Dr McNinja.  I even read the first arc or so years ago, so I’m well aware of the quality BF is facing, unlike Monster Pulse, which I hadn’t even heard of before that day.  I can think of worse comics to be taken down by for sure. (Dresden Codak and LICD spring to mind…  >:|)  I’ll let you guys know when the new contest is up, so it doesn’t turn into more of a slaughter than is already quite likely.

In any case, no matter what happens, I appreciate all the votes.
