– Modest Medusa is lagging just slightly behind Bittersweet Candy Bowl in the Comicsmix March Madness contest. Like, just 20 votes behind! We can beat them, but we need your votes! I’d really, really like to make it to the next round since every new round is bringing in a ton of new readers! Voting ends Saturday evening, so get in there and vote for Medusa! You can vote using either your facebook or twitter account. Find Modest Medusa in the Sendak division, about half way down teh page (or ctrl F search for “Medusa”)
Oooh snap, there’s the smexy -stud- body prince, well once the cape is gone XD kekeke ;3 And aww Gordon looks cute sleeping (being a giant snake and all ;p )
Oh and I’ve been voting since round one for ya!
Must not think he’s Kain… must not think he’s Kain… BUT DAMN DOES HE LOOK LIKE KAIN! I’m not the only one to see this right? FF4’s Dragoon Kain?
…. Great… now I’m thinking of Rydia. :F
…In keeping you thinking that, that is! Muahaha!
So she’s a hydra, not a gorgon then?
YES IT IS A THING.
Don’t look it up.
I tried, but google did nothing.
Sounds like an std
Or a gorgon is just a juvenile hydra.
Gorgon is her name; hydra is either her species or the name for the “giant snake” stage of a gorgon’s life cycle. I have a feeling that the prince is about to explain the next stage to us.
Is that the prince? Or another new character? Either way, he looks quite interesting. He looks like a mix of Loki and Batman.
So Loki cheated on the horse with a hydra.
“Many members of the Hydrozoa go through a body change from a polyp to an adult form called a medusa. However, all Hydra, despite being hydrozoans, remain as polyps throughout their lives.” – wikipedia. Ahh… i see what you did there
I am sorry but I am not voting on that round. The main reason is that I support both of your comics and do not want to have to try and choose
“Am I… what? Oh no, I KNEW I should have paid more attention to that in history class!”
and it’s probably because my brother played it recently but he somewhat reminds me of the antagonist from brutal legend (deviculus i think?) except with a black cowl instead of the red full mask.
Added my vote every day! GO GO Medusa
i totally dig the ‘hu what?!’-expression of the horse/soon to be chainsaw unicorn in the last panel!
Yay! Modest Medusa wins by being ahead by 20 votes. I’d like to think I had some small part in bribing that. =D
I know nothing about Cucumber Quest, nor how big they are, since I thought SMBC, for example would last much longer, and also though Nedroid Picture Diary would be bigger, so clearly, I know nothing as to popularity.
I am going to blame it on those damn kids. “Quit skateboarding on my lawn!”
Thanks, but we don’t know for sure yet. Bought votes aren’t counted till afterwards, and the results won’t be posted till Monday. Someone on the other side could have spent $5 nd won it for Bittersweet Candy Bowl (which would be okay).
I think the contest is less about popularity and more about encouraging readers to vote. I doubt SMBC cared a lot, since their readership is already huge. They may not have even been aware of it. In this last match Modest Medusa/Bittersweet Candy Bowl had more votes than any other match, and in a lot of cases had 1/3 more or almost twice as many. We’;re for sure not the two most popular comics online!
If they only spent, $5 then we still win (as I spent more)! Yeah, we’ll see though. I just really want to encourage your readership to grow.
The way I see it, the more readers, the more you an focus on the comic, and probably the more stuff I will want.
I am benevolently selfish. =D
I appreciate it!
Another example is Two Kinds. I doubt the author knew or cared since there was no active campaigning on the web site. Otherwise I’m sure that strip would have lasted longer. You can’t tell me a strip that raised over $200K in its kickerstarter couldn’t get to the finale 4 at least.
MM on the other hand(like BCB) has actively asked readers to keep voting. If MM wins this round its because Jake went the extra mile and even posted a picture(a bribe?) of MM asking for votes. BCB only asked for votes in the site news section in comparison.
I noticed Two Kinds as well. And Dresden Kodak. And a bunch of others.
I’ve been voting for you since round 1!
No wonder though.
