Howdy everyone!

The survey results from our seventh 24-hour voting poll are in! And for the 8th and 9th trading cards, you've chosen the KYLE ROMANCE CARD with 258 votes and the COMMANDER POWERS CARD with 203 votes (out of 454 total backers voting for each card!)

That means that in addition to a physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards of Kyle, The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy and The Platinum Priestess as well as ROMANCE trading cards for The Annihilator and Spooky Jones, those of you who are pledging at the FULL CITIZEN level or above will now also receive a nice, glossy 2.5" x 3.5" trading card with a sexy-calendar-type pin-up pose of our comics' hero, Kyle (Red Hot), which will include intimate details about his romantic interests on the back of the card as well as a card with a powerful action pose of the team's leader, Commander, which will include fascinating details about her abilities on the back of that card. 

You're now going to be getting nine bonus cards with your books! This is becoming quite the bonus haul! :D

In addition to that, all backers will get access to digital versions of these cards. And the sexy/powerful, full-color art for these cards will also be 11" x 14" print options for those getting physical prints! WOO HOO!

But wait, there's more! 

Yesterday as this vote was going on, you unlocked the tenth trading card ($42,500) and now that voting for these two cards is complete, I can send you a voting link for the new one!

In the next BACKERS ONLY update, I'll include your voting link for this new card where you can let me know who you really want to see—and own—as another beautiful (and now, if you want, SEXY) trading card and 11" x 14" print option!

What's next? 

Well, we're now at $44,003 and the next stretch goal gets unlocked less than $1000 away at $45,000. And this one's a very big deal. If that stretch goal in unlocked, I'll be adding a 25-page bonus comic to the printed book (and PDF), featuring fan favorite characters Commander and Spooky Jones! 

Will we hit that next stretch goal? Fingers crossed! But for now, it's time for me to send you another link for your tenth bonus trading card!

Thank you so, so much for your incredible support and for your kind words in the comments. You're not only making my dream of creating this book and these trading cards into reality, you're also making this a whole lot of fun! You ROCK!

More soon!
