true but it's still a popuarity contest. Now should we vote for ones we would date cuz thats my next voting idea.
OF COURSE IT'S A POPULARITY CONTEST! There's only two ways to run a contest like this: one is to let people vote for characters they like (whether from the comic the character is in or from the contest entry), or to get a panel of judges together to choose the winners so that your opinions don't mean a damned thing.
I'm getting tired of people lamenting the fact that your character isn't getting as many votes as “such-and-such” because they have a fan-base to vote for them and you don't. GO OUT AND GET A FAN-BASE! Pimp your comic out a bit, tell your friends about it and hope they tell their friends as well. Post on the forums, join more competitions. Everyone who entered the contest has probably seen a rise in readership since, am I right? A couple more things like this and you'll have the basis of a strong fan-base, too.
And, for the last time, this thing is supposed to be about FUN!
