Links broken on Chrome in Modern template?

Hi, I'm having some problems with the "Modern" page template. I've had a couple readers pointing out that the navigation links don't work on Chrome. I tried them out on Chrome myself and the same thing happened to me. I use Firefox primarily, and they work fine on that browser, including on mobile. A friend tried it out on Edge, and it works fine there, too. I've checked through the code and I can't see anything that should be causing any issues, unless I've broken something without realising.

Specifically, the Next Page/First Page/Archive/Characters buttons don't work. My comic is here if you want to test.

Anyone have any idea what's going on? Do the page formats just not work on Chrome? I am planning on hiring someone to redesign the site soon, but I want to know if this could/would happen again.

It looks like for some reason, in Chrome, the header element overlaps the menu, thus preventing clicks from going through to the menu.

If you remove the "<a class="title" .... ></a>" code or otherwise set it to not display, that should fix the problem. That piece of code is invisible (it's an <a> element linking to the comic's homepage, but with nothing contained in it so it's unclickable), but it causes the overall_header element to stretch over the menu. Firefox allows the underlying elements to work despite this, Chrome blocks them.
