Hiya Dear Kickstarters!

It's been an amazing month for "Stripling Warrior." After the super cool Huffington Post interview a few weeks ago the comic book received tons of amazing press! I'm going to post a few of the links below, enjoy them on your free time.

Also, "Stripling Warrior" is a finalist for a literary award! How did that happen? It's an award chosen by Mormons for literature written by Mormons about being Mormon. Check out the link about the award here: http://associationmormonletters.org/blog/2016/02/2015-aml-awards-finalists-5-comics-criticism-and-drama/

Also, I have super cool preview to the first page of issue three. Here's a little taste:

The full page is really sexy and slightly NSFW. I've posted it in full on my Tumblr, so caution clicking the following link:

Also, here's some cool black and white preview artwork to the nearly completed issue three. Lots and lots of action ensues after the sexy times on page one.

And now, onto the links for all the press coverage the comic has received.
