Well, the last few days have seen a constant
blur of activity here at Amazoness! HQ (a studio
atop a sleek tower in London's fashionable West End... oh,
alright then. It's an abandoned Ford Escort on a municipal
waste dump). I've been doing my best to link to this comic,
my pride and joy, in all those places that webcomic readers
congregate. Places like... uh... the Internet.
Amazoness! is now a member of
the Subculture of One clique, hence the stylish banner you
can see above this news section, advertising one of the
clique's other comics and/or comic-related sites. Many of
these are sites I hadn't seen before joining, and on the
whole, they're a pretty cool bunch. Of course, since I'm
a member too now, I'll have to work hard to avoid letting
the team down...
Above the banner are some of those ubiquitous
and intrusive "VOTE FOR MY COMIX!!!1!" buttons that you
all know and hate. I'd appreciate any votes you'd toss my
way, especially as I'm currently so low in the rankings
that a handful of votes would probably elevate me a couple
of hundred places. I'm not going to be nestling betwixt
the likes of Penny Arcade and VG Cats any time soon, or
ever, but it would be nice to at least be in the upper half
of the Sea of Abandoned Sprite Comics, where I'm currently
As you're probably aware, these rankings
work by the following rationale: People vote for your comic,
which pushes it higher in the rankings, which means more
people see it. These people then vote for it, pushing you
even higher in the ranking, thus exposing you to even more
readers, and more votes. Eventually, we reach a point where
everybody on the Internet is either looking at or voting
for my comic. Nobody gets any work done. Businesses collapse,
followed by economies and then the social order. Now, don't
tell me that isn't an awesome image.
Update: We now have
an RSS feed, courtesy of the awesome people at RSSPECT.
Now you'll never have to miss another issue of
Amazoness! Unless you get bored of it and
unsubscribe. Or your computer breaks. Or you swear off
the Internet and go and live under a tree. I hope you
don't go and live under a tree. Wait, come back!
