For years, Goblins has been on the TopWebComics list and it's been fun and awesome. I remember watching Goblins hover in the 40s and thinking "wouldn't it be cool to be in the top 10". Then we hit the top 10 and I thought "wouldn't it be great to be in 1st place". Then we hit 1st place and for awhile held that top spot only if I worked at it. That is to say, only if I presented regular vote incentives in the form of  upcoming panels from the next comic page. Then we reached a point where incentives were no longer needed. Goblins started to dominate the top spot with little or no incentives. The competition battled against us with daily postings of regular pics of their characters wearing little or nothing or of seperate comics that could only be read by voting for them on the TWC list. Often, this resulted in knocking Goblins into 2nd place, but it wasn't long before Goblins would lazily float up to 1st again. Please note: I feel like a total douchebag who's bragging and building himself up. I HATE this kind of egotistical crap, but it needs to be said to explain what's going on. So allow me to bring balance to the force with these unflattering facts... I can't grow a full head of hair. I dance like a moron. I suck at most sports. I'm 38 and I have never had a driver's licence. Whew, that feels better. Okay, back to the topic at hand. Ironically, while I write this blog, Goblins is currently in 2nd place on the list (way to go, Two Kinds!). Still, I feel like Goblins has enjoyed the 1st place spot enough and it's time to move on and make room for the other comics on the list. Some of them are brilliant, by the way! Please check them out! Of course, nothing is actually changing with Goblins. I'm still updating twice a week, tweeting daily and drawing live on cam almost daily. However at the end of April, I'll be removing the vote button from my site (you know... that goblin with the shield over there to your right). Now can I please stop talking about Goblins being 1st and go back to making jokes at my own expense? Thanks TopWebComics and thanks to everyone who's been voting for Goblins over the years! And thanks for reading! ~Thunt

I'd like to offer a huge congratulations to Gunnerkrigg Court and its fans for winning the ComicMix tournament. The comic deserves it for being a breath of fresh air in the genre and the fans deserve it for being a fantastic group of fun folks that I've really enjoyed getting to know. If you haven't read it yet, here's the article about the results. I'd also like to thank the Goblinites for getting us all the way up to second place (and a very close second at that)! I hope you're all as proud and overjoyed as I am with how well we did. The $50 we won is being donated to Child's Play along with the $100 that Gunnerkrigg Court won. So everyone wins! Finally, I'd like to offer one more movie clip in honour of Gunnerkrigg Court (well, at least the music from the clip). It's a bit earlier than the 80's, but I can't help myself. It fits so well. As always, thanks for reading. ~Thunt

Six hours left in the contest and we're neck and neck with Gunnerkrigg Court (we're less than four hundred votes behind them)! No matter who wins, the prize money is being donated to Child's Play! As always, thanks for reading. ~Thunt

I can't believe that myself and the Goblins fans have made it to the final battle! Go us! For this most epic of battles, we're dueling Gunnerkrigg Court! A comic with multi-layered, well thought out writing and breathtaking artwork by creator Tom Siddell. It's nigh impossible to find anyone with something bad to say about GC. By "GC", I mean Gunnerkrigg Court and not Goblins Comic (notice the synchronicity there? It really adds to the 'final battle' ambience). So if you haven't already, check out Gunnerkrigg Court. I also want to say that no matter what happens during this last fight, I'm incredibly complimented and humbled just to make it this far! Thanks SO much for the support! And incase you missed it on my last blog post, I'm going to be posting the Shield of Wonder list and the Goblins map regardless of the tournament results. For the final fight video, I've chosen the cheesiest sword fight ever put on film. You really need to watch this one all the way through to believe it. It's deliciously awful. Click here to vote on GC vc GC and see the current results! Click here to watch the horrible yet strangely epic final battle to represent this fight! Click here to follow Thunt on Twitter! As always, thanks for reading! ~Thunt

Aha! I have internet again! Why did I lose my internet? Well it goes a little something like this... The previous owners of my new home move out. The internet company climbs up the pole outside my house and disconnects their internet, since they've moved. We move into the new home. The internet company climbs up the pole outside my house and connects the internet for us. The next day, the internet company thinks that they have not yet disconnected the internet after the previous owners of the house moved out. So they climb the pole outside my house and disconnect the internet. I call the internet company and make an appointment for someone to reconnect us. Robert the internet guy shows up (we like Robert the internet guy), explains everything to us and saves the day! So go vote at the Goblins vs OotS battle! We have defeated Romantically Apocalyptic, and so as promised, I will answer the question that I've refused to answer for years... "Can Minmax see out of his damaged, right eye?" The answer is yes. He suffers no penalty or impaired vision from the scar. Think about it, he complained about how the scar makes him look, but he has never complained about any kind of vision penalty. A minmaxer like him would definitely complain about a penalty to any of his abilities. So if we beat Order Of The Stick, I'll post all of the Shield of Wonder's random effects (*). Let me also take this moment to say that Order Of The Stick is nothing short of brilliant. In my opinion, it's much funnier than Goblins. The timing of the jokes are astounding. I still laugh at "bluff the stupid ogre". If you haven't read OotS yet, go do so now. And for the 80's fight scene to represent this battle, I bring you Optimus vs Megatron. And now back to drawing! This move has made me late! As always, thanks for reading. ~Thunt EDIT: (*) You know what? The more I think about it, the more I feel like a jerk face for offering you stuff to get you to vote. I'll post the Shield of Wonder info and the map whether Goblins wins or not. Just give me enough time to get those things in order. :)
