Yes, Fanboys pulled in ninth, good enough to make the feature instead of Corpse Run. I spent the entire week trying to get in touch with the strip's creator, who doesn't publish an email address, to discuss permission to republish. I went through Twitter, the strip's Facebook page, even a Tumblr AMA. None of my messages were returned, so on Friday afternoon I reached out to Corpse Run, the next highest-scoring comic, which accepted.


There it is. That's your comics page, as you voted on it. The new lineup begins tomorrow.

I think Readysoup shouldve deserved a spot. Although props to all the comics and thier creators that are going to be featured. I do think that you shouldve atleast put a sample of the comics up so that people will get a feel for what the comic is about/the type of humor. I feel like its more of a popularity contest, but thats just me.
