UPDATE: Karmaburn chooses the 2012 Girl of the Year, and doesn't even consider Marika or Chiaki, let alone Yukikaze.
UPDATE: Here's Aroduc's season preview.

My general rule is that if one of the blogs I follow goes a full month without posting, then their link falls off my daily visit list and goes into the "dormant" folder, which I go into about once a year.
As I write this, it's been five and a half weeks since Beta-Waffle has posted anything. Problem is, I don't want to put that link into the graveyard. Anyone know what's going on with DiGiKerot? (Did something bad happen to him? If so, is there anything I can do to help?)
UPDATE: Meanwhile, some tremendously good news: Sixten found another job. That means he won't be deported.

There are some online comics I occasionally follow, where the art is amazing but the update rate approaches the abysmal.
Dresden Codak has been updating pretty regularly recently.
On the other hand, Outsider hasn't updated since March 5. Sheesh.
I stopped reading Freefall. He's been good about his 3-times-per-week schedule, but since it's a 4-panel comic, the story is moving very, very slowly, and it's reached a point where I just can't read it any more. I think I'll wait a few months and then catch up all at once. With luck, by then the crisis will have passed.
(I still think it's going to turn out that without his mask, Sam looks like Cthulhu.)
The most recent strip from Real Life has a reference I don't get. I'm woefully uncool, I guess. "Why doesn't Ted just tell his damned kids how he met their mother?" Who's Ted?
Update rate on Argon Zark is down to about a page per year. Just to show you how stale it is, Bill Gates is one of the villains in the current story line, and Gates retired from Microsoft in 2008.
UPDATE: Speaking of online comics, if you want a laugh (and a considerable helping of schadenfreude) check out this thread on Metafilter, about the Walker recall election in Wisconsin. They're trying to hold out hope that Barrett will come from behind and win it. As I write this, NBC, Fox, and the NYT have all called it for Walker. With 56% of the vote counted, Walker is 15 points ahead. It ain't even slightly close. This is a huge blow-out.
I stopped worrying when I started seeing columns written by left-wing pundits talking about how this didn't really matter, and how a Walker victory might actually be good for Obama. When your opponents start whistling loudly past the graveyard, it's time to invest in graveyard futures.

Don's got a rather nice picture that someone sent him.
My problem is that I don't really know too much about Sailor Moon so I can't tell whether the transplants are like the originals.
