Good afternoon, y'all!

Very early this morning we eased on past the $70,000 mark which means that a very special reward got unlocked—the SEXY HEIGHT CHART FOR THE GUYS!

Such great heights

This is another 11" x 14" BONUS PRINT options for backers at the EXPERIENCED VIGILANTE level and above and, of course, all backers will be able to enjoy it as a high-res digital wallpaper when it's finished!

What's the scene? All the guys of The Young Protectors team lined up by height in their underwear against a height chart for a government mandated physical. 

What do you get to vote on? Whether that underwear stays on or comes off! 

So, with your votes, you can now decide if you want to see how the guy heroes of The Young Protectors really measure up.

I'll be sending you the voting form for that in my next BACKERS-ONLY update!


Voting continues for determining who will be featured on the 17th Trading Card (and whether that card will be a ROMANCE card or the newly unlocked ORIGIN card!)

The second round of voting also continues for the ACTION TEAM-UP/BATTLE PRINT where you're deciding if Kyle and The Annihilator are teaming-up or battling each other in this print ("TEAM UP" is winning by a mile). You're also deciding, if they team-up, whether they are saving the day together or committing a crime together (and that vote is amazingly close—818 votes have been cast and the choices are a mere 12 votes apart!)

So, if you haven't had a chance to vote on those yet, look for the voting links in the Updates tab and join the fun!

What's Next?

Well, we're now at $71,006 and the next stretch goal, your 18th Trading Card, gets unlocked just $1500 away at $72,500.

And how about after that?

  • at $75,000, you unlock a brand-new 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 in a short 5-15 page bonus comic. And because it’s “for charity”, team member will be very open to your most daring of dares!
  • at $80,000, you unlock the NEVER BEFORE SEEN ROMANCE PRINT with NSFW OPTION where variety is the spice of life! You'll get to pick which two characters you want to see together who have yet to be featured in a ROMANCE PRINT. This one's going to be fun! 
  • I've listened to your suggestions in the comments, so I've changed the $85,000 stretch goal so that, if we reach it, it AUTOMATICALLY UNLOCKS ALL ROMANCE CARDS that have yet to be unlocked through votes! 
  • and then if things get really crazy and we hit $100,000, all backers at the YOUNG HERO pledge level and above will be sent an authentic, embroidered SPOOKY CAP!

Will we hit any of those stretch goals? Fingers crossed! But for now it's time for me to get you the voting link for the SEXY HEIGHT CHART FOR THE GUYS!

Please help spread the word!

We're now just over halfway through this Kickstarter campaign and more than any other time, this is when you can make the biggest difference in terms of how well we do overall and how many stretch goals are unlocked. Every day the package of rewards for backers has gotten better and better and I'd love that to continue. Because folks stop talking about it, sometimes things slow down in the middle of a Kickstarter project, but a few words from you can keep things cooking along nicely. 

If you've been having fun, please take a moment on the Twitters and the Facebooks and the reddits and the Tumblrs and at your local BBQ to let folks know why you decided to become a backer and/or why you're enjoying being a backer (including a link to this project, of course.) And please mention why you think others might want to join the fun too.

Getting the word out is the hardest part for me so you can make a huge difference here. :)

Thank You!

Thank you so much for your support and for all the fun cheering in the comments. I tried really hard to come up with a campaign that would be fun for folks and it just makes my day to hear back that you're enjoying it. :D

Thank you, all of you, for being TOTALLY AWESOME!

More soon!

      Can't we just get both versions of the sexy height chart and vote as to which will go to print and which will stay just in digital form? That would be nice lol
