Virtual Shackles only just appeared on the gaming webcomic scene, but has held its own in every Wrapup it's appeared on, usually netting one of the runner-up spots. However, their eighteenth strip -- a cautionary tale about the dangers of sentient camera peripherals titled "Still a Few Bugs in the System
" -- managed to pull down first place in last week's WeeWebWrap
. Congratulations, VirtShack! (Do you mind if we call you VirtShack? We feel so much closer
to you now.)
Second place went to GameSpy's "The Life Cycle of a Videogame
" (which missed top honors by a mere eight votes!) and Brawl in the Family's "The Lesson
," respectively. If you've got a favorite gaming-themed webcomic to throw into the ring this week, act quickly! We'll be webcomic wrapping later today, shortly before we recklessly play with fireworks -- and after that, we may not have enough fingers left to throw any tardy entries into the fray.
