Voting, Winning, and Rankings

Comic matches have a 1 week voting period. Any registered user that has been registered for more than 1 week can vote on a comic. Comic votes are monitored, so you must vote fairly. Cheating members will be banned.

You will judge each comic in 3 categories:


The visuals of a comic; consider things like lineart, panel composition, expressions/posing, backgrounds, etc. The comic’s level of completeness should factor in here. Is the comic still rough sketches, or has it been completed? If color is used, has it been utilized well? If it’s grayscale/monotone, are the values applied thoughtfully? Note that, ideally, votes should factor in the artist’s current artistic level—we recommend that you don’t judge an artist against other artists, but against themselves.


The story behind the artwork; consider things like dialogue, pacing, characterization, etc. Does the story flow well? Does it make sense? Does the beginning hook your interest, and does the ending feel satisfying? If it’s a comedy, are the jokes funny and well-written, or do they fall flat? If it’s a drama, does the drama feel deserved, or does it feel forced or contrived? Note that not everything has to be a literary masterpiece—simple and straightforward is not a bad thing, if that’s what the artist was going for.


By far, this is the most subjective category. Consider if the comic made you have any sort of emotional reaction or not. Did it surprise you in any way? Was it compelling? Was it boring? Would you read it again? Note that entertainment doesn’t necessarily mean feel-good—tragedy can be just as entertaining as comedy.

Voting Tips

1 – Hated it
5 – Average
10 - Amazing

Use those as a guide if you are unsure of how to vote. Extremely low and extremely high scores are usually rare. Everyone has their own personal system for how they determine a vote.

Again, votes are kept secret from normal members, but they are reviewed by admin to ensure voting remains fair.

If you vote all 10’s for a friend and all 1’s for the competition, then your vote will be removed. Vote fairly to ensure you are not banned.

Winning and Losing

After the voting period has ended, the person with the most points wins. There is no canon in Void, so you can either take your comic or their comic as canon if you lose.


Void has a ranking system for both the characters and the artists. Ranks are determined by 3 factors: Number of comics completed, win/loss ratio, and scores received during voting. You can view character or artist ranks by going to the respective page and switching sorting from Most Recent Activity to Highest Score.
