Howdy y'all!

Boy, today has been an awesome day! Sure, it was gorgeously sunny where I live, but more importantly, we blasted past the $65,000 stretch goal to unlock a crazy-fun reward—the ACTION TEAM-UP/BATTLE PRINT!

For this print, I'll send out a 24-hour voting link where you'll get to pick two characters for an action scene and then decide in a second vote whether those two are teaming up or battling each other—your choice! Could Tsunami's water defeat Kyle's fire? Who would win in a battle between Spooky Jones and The Platinum Priestess? Or how exactly would The Annihilator and Flyboy team up to save the day? Now you can find out!

This print will become one of the 11" x 14" options for backers at the EXPERIENCED VIGILANTE level or above and all backers will receive it as high-res digital wallpaper! I'll send out that first voting link to you in my next BACKERS ONLY update.


Meanwhile, voting continues for another hour for who will be on the 16th Trading Card you will receive—and boy this one is close! Only 18 votes separate The Platinum Priestess from Hunter and Killer. Who will win? No idea! But I'll let you all know first thing in the morning!

What's Next?

Well, we're currently at $65,649 and the upcoming stretch goals continue to be awesome, because

  • 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!
  • 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!
  • And then at $75,000, you unlock A TRUTH OR DARE BONUS COMIC PDF where, as backers, you'll be able to create and vote on questions and dares for the team to answer. And because it’s “for charity”, team member will be very open to your most daring of dares!

Will we reach those stretch goals? Fingers crossed! But for now, I've got another fun 24-hour voting link to send out to you!

Thank You

We're now at the halfway point in this project and look at everything you've made happen! There's going to be a gorgeous printed book, over a dozen cool trading cards, sexy romance prints with pairings I would never get a chance to make in the regular comic, "full monty" art and, oh yeah, a 25-page bonus comic that will get added to the book!

You are all amazingly wonderful and I'm tremendously grateful to each and every one of you.

Keep being SUPERHEROES! More soon!
