PHW Online, come on down! You are the latest winner on Joystiq's Weekly Webcomic Wrapup!


Annoying enthusiasm aside, second and third place went to the usual suspects Penny Arcade and VG Cats, respectively. Thanks to everyone who voted earnestly, and be sure to let us know (preferably as a comment below) of any game-related webcomics you find this week that make you all warm and fuzzy inside!

We had an issue with this week's webcomic wrapup and the inclusion of the None of the Above category. For the first 2,300 votes, "None of the Above" was at 8%. Then, from 2,300 to 2,700, the number of votes for None of the Above tripled, rendering the choice over 20%.

However, those nada votes comprised close to 95% of all the votes in that period, and the likelihood that 95% of the voters arbitrarily disliked all the choices within the span of a few hours, breaking the initial 24-hour pattern, is unlikely without outside interference. That said, people are welcome to throw away their vote if they do not want to play nice. Enough people enjoy the wrapup, most of all us. We'll keep it going, regardless of a statistical anomaly/outside interference.

That said, here's how the score broke down:
