This would still bring absolute transparency to the process, but it wouldnt create "trends" that affected voting, and it would not kill the suspense.

We might be less willing to vote for comics which are unpopular or contraversial, we might vote for certain comics which make us look like intelligent/informed/down-to-earth readers when in truth we don't actually read them. We might even negotiate vote-exchanges with other participants, aware that we can later check to make sure they voted for us in return for us voting for them.
