Another stretch goal UNLOCKED—the NSFW print!

Posted by Alex Woolfson (Creator)

Good morning, everyone! Boy, this has been a wild, fun week! :D


Very, very early this morning we rocketed past $40,000 which unlocked our eleventh (!!) stretch goal, the 11" x 14" NSFW PRINT! 

This print is just like the previous unlocked ROMANCE PRINT, except that it will have another question: whether you'd like the image to be Not Safe For Work (NSFW), meaning "significantly more revealing than what you'd see in my regular comic pages." That choice is up to you. Either way, it will be lovely.

(Oh, one other difference with the choices: like before, both Hunter and Killer are separate vote options but, in the spirit of fun, I've decided to add in a "Hunter AND Killer" option as well, because, y'know, they usually operate as a team. So, I eagerly await asking Adam to create a NSFW print involving Hunter and Killer... getting busy with Killer's clone. Y'all know I like sci-fi... ;) )

Anyway! With this new print unlocked that means that in addition to a gorgeous full-color physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards of Kyle, The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy and The Platinum Priestess and ROMANCE CARDS for both The Annihilator and Spooky Jones (and two more cards y'all are still voting on!) AND an ACTION PRINT with Kyle and a ROMANCE PRINT with Kyle and The Annihilator, backers at the EXPERIENCED VIGILANTE level or higher will now be able to get another brand-new, full color 11" x 14" ROMANCE PRINT now with an NSFW option featuring the two characters you all will vote on—kissing and maybe a lot more!—as one of their print options! And all backers will receive the art as high-res digital wallpaper the moment we finish it! YAY!

(And if you are a backer, you can choose to increase your pledge at any time until the project ends. So if you decide you'd like one of these physical prints, so long as the project is still running, it's very easy to make that happen!)

In the next BACKERS ONLY update (which I'll send out shortly), I'll send out the link for you to make your choice!

What's next?

Well, you're currently voting on the 8th and 9th Trading Cards. We're also currently at $42,051 and the next stretch goal is at $42,500 (less than $500 away!) and that stretch goal not only unlocks a 10th Trading Card, it also means that I'll be able to afford to fly The Young Protectors colorist Veronica Gandini up from Argentina to sign books! If that stretch goal is unlocked, that will mean that all backers at the PILLAR OF COMMUNITY level or higher will receive a book signed by me, penciler Adam DeKraker and then also colorist Vero! (Who is currently creating beautiful sunsets for the latest comic pages.)

Will we hit that stretch goal? Fingers crossed! But in the meantime, let me again say how grateful I am to all of you for your amazing generosity and enthusiasm. A lot of work goes into a Kickstarter project, but you're making it a total blast for me. 

Thank you so, so much! You are all AWESOME!


P.S. Penciler Adam and I were interviewed on comics mega-blog The Beat a couple days ago. The questions were really interesting—and even I learned some things about Adam I didn't know. If you get a moment, please check it out! :D
