After 3 months of downtime, ultra-popular web-comic ranking site BuzzComic
has risen like an inefficiently-coded phoenix from the ashes. Crude rankings are disdained
by those higher
in the web-comic-echelons, but BuzzComix and Top Web Comics have become a key way for indie-web-comics to get traffic and publicity, and is considered partly responsible for the rise of RPG bad boy Order of the Stick

have clamored for their voters to return to the competition, garnering publicity for their sites. A significant traffic shortfall since May has devastated the field, and optimists hope the publicity will replenish their ad revenue.
