Dear supporters,   (Nope. Not strong enough. Let’s try again...)   My Dear, generous, patient, caring, community-minded, comic book loving Abolitionistas!  

Our comic book, ABOLITIONISTA!, is finished!  And I'm dying to get it into your hands.  But I'll need your mailing address.   I'll be sending you out a Kickstarter survey later tonight where you'll be able to send my your mailing address.  Please fill it out as soon as you get it and send it back, and I'll mail out your comic books tomorrow.  If you have any trouble with that, you can just send me your address to my email address: estler.thomas@gmail.com

The comic book took a year longer then I thought it would, but it was worth the effort. Our artists, Delilah Bucklle, and Lizbeth R. Jimenez, have done beautiful work, and our extraordinary publisher Steve Susoyev has delivered a gorgeous publication. THANK YOU!  

I can’t wait to send your very own copy to you, but right now, you can read it online at www.abolitionista.com.   And don't keep it to yourself...send out the link to the far reaches of your social universe. Attach a link (www.abolitionista.org) to your email signature so that you give it to everyone that you email to. Post it on Facebook with the declaration “This will save your life and blow your mind.” Tweet it. Text it. Instagram it, far and wide. This comic book was born with a purpose: 1) to captivate and thrill you, and 2) to make the world a safer place to live.  And it fulfills its purpose every time someone reads it.  So give it away!

You are essential to getting the word out about ABOLITIONISTA! As soon as you read this, email the link to friends, family, bloggers, reviewers, teachers, law enforcement officers, community leaders. Anyone. EVERYONE. Unless ABOLITIONISTA! gets out into the world, it will never achieve its purpose: to protect the people that are vulnerable to traffickers and predators. 

Here are more pictures of the comic books final journey to my apartment.

And who would interrupt this magical moment with a phone call?  My amazing editor, Steve Susoyev, who so lovingly shepherded this project through the printing process.  Thanks Steve.  Thanks Delilah.  Thanks Lizbeth.  You created a truly beautiful work.

      Congratulations! I received my copy (it's awesome) and will spread the word.
      All that hard work builds strong muscles. Glad you made it through the labyrinth. :)
      What a great cause...I am sure you will receive many blessings for all your hard work in saving the lives of many children who were not aware of how they can protect themselves from these predators. God Bless!
