VOTING RESULTS for the 15th Trading Card and the 16th Trading Card is UNLOCKED!

Posted by Alex Woolfson (Creator)

Howdy y'all!

Voting is now complete for the 15th Trading Card and you chose the FLUKE ROMANCE CARD with 310 votes out of 678 ballots cast!

A fine choice, my friends! Rumor has it that, in addition to bringing freakishly good luck to other people, Fluke is the most fit of all The Young Protectors and thus the most likely to sport washboard abs. Is that really true, Fluke?

You'd smile too if you could bounce quarters off of your tummy and have them always come up heads.


Your choice means that in addition to a physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards of Kyle, The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy, The Platinum Priestess, Commander, Fluke and Tsunami as well as ROMANCE trading cards for The Annihilator, Spooky Jones, Flyboy, Kyle, Commander and Tsunami, 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-pin-up pose of the luckiest guy in the world, Fluke, which will include intimate details about his romantic interests on the back of the card as well!

You're now going to be getting fifteen bonus cards with your books now! That's like enough to shuffle!

In addition to that, all backers will get access to digital versions of this card. And the beautiful, 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!

Earlier today, you unlocked the twentieth stretch goal ($62,500) which unlocked the 16th Trading Card and since we have results for the 15th card, you can now pick your favorite for this new card!

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 a beautiful (and potentially SEXY) trading card and 11" x 14" print option!

What's next?

We're currently at $63,358 and things are about to get really interesting because

  • At $65,000, we have the ACTION TEAM-UP/BATTLE PRINT where you'll get to pick two characters for an action scene and then decide in a second vote whether they are teaming up or battling each other—your choice! Could Commander really break Spooky Jones in half? Now you can find out!
  • At $67,500, you unlock a whole new kind of card—the ORIGIN CARD which offers a narration about how a character discovered their powers and chose to be a superhero (or villain!). The card art would feature one of the first uses of that character's power. And it will also mean all the characters will be back in play!
  • And then at $70,000, we have the much-discussed-in-the-comments (and much-looked-forward-to) SEXY HEIGHT CHART FOR THE GUYS where the guys of The Young Protectors team will be lined up by height in their underwear and you'll get to decide whether the underwear stays on or comes off!

Will we reach those stretch goals? Fingers crossed!

But for now it's time for me to send you your next Voting Link! And now it's down to just two choices—a POWERS card for take-no-prisoners vigilantes Hunter & Killer or a ROMANCE card for the wicked and wonderful Platinum Priestess. And this one is important because with ORIGIN CARDS next to be unlocked, the one not chosen could well be left behind. The power is again in your hands. Who will you choose?

Thank You!

Thank you so much again for participating in this Kickstarter project! I get a big kick out of watching the voting results change throughout the day and reading about you lobbying for your favorites in the comments. I'm really looking forward to the Origin Cards when all the characters are back in play. Lots more folks are part of this project now (over 1100 backers!) so I wonder if we'll get some surprises in how the votes go for the next batch of cards... 

More soon!
