inserting comics into someone's hand sounds painful. However you would never loose your comics so it's good I suppose.

Due to a scheduling mishap, I have to get last weeks comics this week(hopefully). Whatever October comics I have by the deadline, I'll be sure to vote. :)

By voting ending on the 8th, does that mean at midnight when it's going into the 9th? I have all my October comics, so I was planning on voting in the morning. Is that O.K.?

let me answer your question with a question: when have I ever paid attention to the date in the OP? hehe.

  • Number one thing you should know about me: I don't pay much attention to those dates and I don't have exact times when these threads will be locked.
  • Number two thing you should know about me: I never turn away anyone who wants to vote. I often keep the polls open longer than what I actually say originally just so I can allow other users to vote that I know want to vote.
  • Number three thing you should know about me: I often push the deadline so I know right after I lock this thread I would release the thread. In this case, I will extend this at the most sunday (don't want to go into next week with this...won't set an exact date right now because I'm not sure when I'll collect votes, but in the next few days).

Edited by lifeboy

Poet, I think you should add 'best supporting characters' as something on there. For instance, shado, doctor 13, and alice tesla were very interesting characters, but they don't really fit into 'favorite male/female'. Anyhow, its just a thought, take that and a dollar to the store and it won't even buy you a soda.

Also, plan to revisit the 7 comics I read and vote before the deadline!

Posted by The Poet

@lifeboy: I will submit that category to you guys as a possibility for next month's wild card. If a category has a high voting rate (everyone puts votes in that category) I may at the end of the year ask you guys if you want to add it to the poll permanently. If memory serves we've done it before, but I want to see it again with this batch of voters to see what people think of the category before I consider adding it (though on whether it should be added is at the end of the day not my decision)

plus @donfelipe's votes.

I'm going to say voting ends after today. I won't be up at midnight or anything, but expect to have this thread locked at some point sunday. If anyone has trouble voting within this deadline let me know and I will compile everyone else's votes while not locking this thread, but otherwise it will be locked sunday.

Again, I feel that best supporting character needs a spot permanently. There is a lot of awesome characters that standout such as: God dog in phantom stranger, duela's cat in catwoman, doctor 13, nightmare nurse. I had to force Tinderbox and Alice Testla into the spaces above because have taken a liking to them in their nuance appearances even though they are supporting at most. Sorry for my badgering you. You won't here me mension it again.
