Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is passing the baton

Ross Miller
Apologies for the lack of updates recently, folks, as I've been in a persistent battle with our weekend guerrilla team, who managed to whittle me down and is now taking over full control of the Weekly Webcomic Wrapup. I made a deal that would keep the McElroy Empire out of here forever ... but then they altered the deal. I can only pray they don't alter it further.

I've been given the opportunity to make a final statement, which I intend to do so with bullet points:
  • In the world of webcomics, this is more often than not true. For better and for worse.
  • Is it Funny Today? is worth checking out to see what the Internet Hivemind finds
  • The 2008 Webcomic Holiday Postcard Fundraiser is now live and worth your consideration. Proceeds go to Child's Play Charity.
  • Favorite webcomic? I love Digital Unrest and its geeky science jokes.
It's been a great 3 years, 2 months and 6 days, thanks to everyone who has been supportive of this. Griffin will take over next week, so for one last time: Here are our picks for the week's best game-related webcomics, be sure to vote for your favorite! (Poling after the break.)

Ball and Stick (Digital Unrest)
Unavoidable Square tax (MNC)
A Penetrating Look (Penny Arcade)
Town Folks (Brawl in the Family)
Of bar bets and pub puns (Sidescroller)
Is that a tear? (GameMarks)
Crossover (CAD)
Who Reviews the Reviewers? (2P Start)
Burn me once, shame ... (Dueling Analogs)


Update: Just so we're clear, I'm not leaving Joystiq. I'm just abandoning the webcomic wrapup to ultimate ruin and decay.
