VOTING RESULTS for the 10th TRADING CARD are in!

Posted by Alex Woolfson (Creator)

Howdy y'all!

The survey results from our ninth 24-hour voting poll are in! And for the 10th trading cards, you've chosen the FLYBOY ROMANCE CARD with 158 votes out of 534 total backers voting!

We're looking at a winner, my friend!

That means that in addition to a physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards of Kyle, The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy, The Platinum Priestess and Commander as well as ROMANCE trading cards for The Annihilator, Spooky Jones and Kyle, 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 Teen Beat-type-sexy-pin-up pose of the youngest member of The Young Protectors team, Flyboy, which will include intimate details about his romantic interests on the back of the card as well!

You're now going to be getting ten bonus cards with your books! Good golly!

In addition to that, all backers will get access to digital versions of this card. And the handsome, full-color art for this card will also be 11" x 14" print options for those getting physical prints! YAY!

But wait, there's more!

Yesterday, you unlocked the thirteenth stretch goal ($45,000) which in addition to unlocking the 25-PAGE BONUS COMIC FEATURING COMMANDER AND SPOOKY JONES, also unlocked the 11th trading card. And this morning you cruised past the fourteenth stretch goal ($47,500) which unlocked the 12th trading card!

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

What's next?

We're currently at $48,100 and the next stretch goal at $50,000 is very, very special. If we hit that, it will unlock the FULL MONTY reward which means that I will create fully nude versions of the art of all unlocked ROMANCE CARDS for characters who are over the age of 18 in the story (which so far includes art from ROMANCE  CARDS of The Annihilator, Spooky and Kyle—and if more ROMANCE CARDS for Age-18+ characters are unlocked—which is everyone else but Fluke—Full Monty art for those characters will be created as well!). 

These revealing images will be 11" x 14" print options for those backing at the EXPERIENCED VIGILANTE level or above. And all backers will be able to view them as digital downloads! Have you been interested in seeing the Full Monty with my characters from The Young Protectors? Now you can!

But wait, there's still more!

When I started this project, I figured that coming up with stretch rewards all the way up to $50,000 was crazy. No way were we going to hit that! And yet here we are, with 21 days left to go, less than $2,000 away from that $50,000. So, I've spent the whole weekend crunching numbers and doing my best to come up with even more awesome stretch goals for post-$50K. I'm working on that update now, but stay tuned! I really think you're going to like what I've come up with!

Thank you so, so much for all your amazing support and enthusiasm! You are literally making my dreams come true. You ROCK so much!

More soon!

      @Jonathan: Thank you so much! It makes me really happy to hear you say you're having a good time! :D

      @Jeffrey: And I'm very glad you're happy to be part of this too! You really are making my dreams come true. :)

      @Helen: Hehe. Well put!

      @Sabrina: Good question! Here's the answer. The Full Monty Reward will be for print options, not physical cards. Let me explain.

      For the 2.5" x 3.5" physical trading cards, there will be only one option for the ROMANCE CARDS (the "regular" version) and those cards with the "regular" romance pin-up art (along with all the other unlocked trading cards) will be sent to all backers at the FULL CITIZEN level or above.

      If the Full Monty stretch goal is unlocked, what that does is it unlocks a different 11" x 14" PRINT OPTION for backers pledging at the EXPERIENCED VIGILANTE level or above. If those backers want, they can choose to get 11" x 14" prints of the "regular" art from the ROMANCE CARDS... or, if that stretch goal is unlocked, they'll be able to choose to get their prints of the art from those cards with the "Full Monty" version of that art. It'll be either/or. Either those backers will choose to get all the Romance Card art they choose as Full Monty prints or all of them as Regular prints. (This is to keep the number of prints being sent to a reasonable amount and also to make thing simpler for me when it comes to fulfillment.)

      So that's what will be physically shipped out to backers. But ALL backers will get to see the Full Monty art I'll create as digital downloads. So, in that sense, you will get both the regular and full monty versions of the card art—as digital images. But only one set of physical cards—the "regular" romance cards.

      Does that make sense?

      Question- for those of us getting the cards, will we get both the regular and the 'full monty' romance cards? If not, can I suggest an upgrade to get both versions?

      More Cards! More Cards! More Cards! I like Tsunami. He's so cute when he's all dazed and confused by things outside his comfort zone, especially those sexual things. I bet he would be just as perturbed and bewildered by an actual woman coming onto him. So more cards would //hopefully// give me a //chance// at getting a Tsunami Romance Card. :D

      Can you tell I had to look up a few things in a thesaurus to help me describe what i wanted to say?

      Can't wait to see the new rewards! And i'm so happy to be a part of this. Helping an artist create something they're passionate about is a great feeling!

      I can't wait to see what the post-50K rewards are going to be! Everything that has been reached to far is really fun and exciting, especially the fact that we are participating in selecting cards and print images. Great job with everything!!!
