Starting Today: Vote "Medium Large" for 2008 Weblog Awards Best Comic Strip!
Yes, starting TODAY, January 5, through January 13th you finally have your chance to help a struggling webcomic land in at least third or fourth place in the 2008 Weblog Awards by voting here! Yes, right here! Or by clicking the above image, which will lead you right to here!
Now, I'm being realistic about my chances, especially in light of such stellar competition as webcomic behemoth xkcd, the internationally-syndicated Dilbert and the Internet comic strip story of 2008, Garfield Minus Garfield. But wouldn't it be great if Best Comic Strip this year wasn't some strip with millions of fans and well-earned critical praise but an old ex-heroin addict searching for a comeback at any price?
Oh, wait. I think I just channeled Billy Mack from Love Actually.
Anyway, in honor of the occasion and in hopes of engendering some positive press in time for voting, all this week Medium Large is handing out its own "Best in Comics 2008" Awards, complete with exciting categories those uptight, buttoned-down judges at the Reubens or Adult Entertainment Awards wouldn't dare feature. So come see if any of your favorites will be walking off with the highly-coveted "Meedy Largey" trophy this year by clicking here!
So in conclusion, don't forget to help Medium Large--the strip The Webcomic Overlook ecstatically acclaimed, "I’m fond of...but not a HUGE fan" win "Best Comic Strip" by voting here!
