Holy cats!

In less than 18 hours, we raised over $14,000 to print the first volume of The Young Protectors: Engaging the Enemy! And not only that we've also just blasted past the first and second stretch goals to unlock the first and second POWERS cards! And it hasn't even been a day yet!

You all are AWESOME!

Okay. So this is all happening a bit faster that I expected. Like a lot faster. :) And there's going to be a book! WOOT!

And... because the first two stretch goals have been reached, that means there's also going to be at least two real trading cards for The Young Protectors—the 1st and 2nd POWERS cards which will have card art featuring a powerful image of a character in action as well as details about the "character's powers and other cool superhero/supervillain stats including their ages, how long they've been active and real names."

Everyone getting a physical book will get these cards, the art we make for the cards will become 11" x 14" print options for those backers getting prints and everyone will get a digital version of each card's art as well.

And as project backers, you'll get to choose who will be on these cards!

Once I post this, I'll post a BACKERS-ONLY update with a 24-hour survey link for you to click on where you'll be able to vote for your two choices. Whichever two characters are the top two choices at the end of the 24 hours will be used for these awesome 2.5" x 3.5" trading cards! 

(OMG! It just hit me! In addition to a high-quality book, we're actually making real trading cards too! Woot! I'm over the moon!)

Thank you all so, so much for your support. And to think—we're just at the beginning! There are a bunch of other stretch goals that I'd love to have the chance to create. And those other stretch goals are now feeling like they might really be possible. So, if you know anyone else who might be interested in this Kickstarter, please spread the word!

Thank you all SO SO MUCH! You ROCK!

      @Jamie: I never doubt the awesomeness of you all. :) But I'll never take you for granted, either. My biggest dream in life has been to tell stories that other folks connected with (and stories that maybe in some way helped make people's live a little better.) You all are making my dreams come true. Like for real. And I'm very grateful. :)

      Yay! This is so awesome! But, Alex did you really doubt us? US? We crazy fans who donate $400+ just to see the next page? We who smother you in praise and lovely fan art? Maybe now you won't underestimate your adoring fanbase ;)
