VOTING RESULTS for your 25TH TRADING CARD and your 26TH Trading Card has been UNLOCKED and FIRST-TIME CARDS are now in play!
Gosh, things are beginning to happen fast! I've got voting results for your 25th Trading Card and you've just unlocked another stretch goal!
First, let's share those voting results!
Your 25th Trading Card
The voting results for your 25th Trading Card are in and with 1075 ballots cast, you've chosen the TSUNAMI ORIGIN CARD with 496 votes (46.14%)! (The Platinum Priestess Origin Card was a very close second with 467 votes [43.44%])
Your choice means that in addition to a physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards for ALL 9 character choices, ROMANCE trading cards for ALL 9 character choices as well as ORIGIN cards for The Annihilator, Kyle, Spooky Jones, Flyboy, Commander and Fluke, 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 powerful image of one of the first uses of Tsunami's powers as well as a fascinating narration about how he became a superhero!
You're going to be getting twenty-five bonus cards with your books now! In addition to that, all backers will get access to a digital version of this card! YAY!
Voting continues for the last Stretch Goal you unlocked today—the KICKSTARTER-EXCLUSIVE BOOKMARK that will be sent out to all backers at FULL CITIZEN or above.
So far, 685 of you have cast your votes and the lead has been trading back and forth between The Annihilator and Kyle. So, if you care who will be smiling at you from this beautiful, full-color bookmark as you're reading your copy of The Young Protectors Volume One, please go click the voting link and let me know!
Your 27th Trading Card and FIRST-TIME CARDS!
Just an hour or so ago, you steam-rolled past the thirty-fourth stretch goal which not only unlocked your 27th Trading Card but made FIRST-TIME CARDS available as an option for all characters who already have an ORIGIN card!
These cards would reveal intimate details about a character's romantic experience, namely their first-time experiences with romance and sex (first kiss, first time in love, first...). The card art would also feature a sweet, beautiful image of that character's very first kiss. Fun!
So, as soon as I'm done with this update, I'll send you another BACKERS-ONLY update with your voting link for the next Trading Card you'll receive as a reward and you'll be able to decide if you want it to be one of these new FIRST-TIME cards!
What are you getting right now?
A couple backers have pointed out to me that so many stretch goals have been unlocked, they aren't entirely clear what pledge levels are getting what! Well, there's a page that I've been updating every day that tells you just that:
And, of course, if you decide you want to bump up your pledge level to get even more goodies, you can do that at any time on our Kickstarter's home page.
We're so close!! We're now at $98,557 which means we're less than $1500 from ALL BACKERS AT YOUNG HERO AND ABOVE GETTING THEIR VERY OWN SPOOKY CAP!
The Spooky Cap is of course part of fan-favorite character Spooky Jones' casual superhero uniform and if we hit $100,000, I'll send all backers at Young Hero and above an embroidered cap that I will make it as authentic to what Spooky wears in the comic as I physically can!
It'll be so AWESOME!
And what's next next?
- at $105,000, THE ANNIHILATOR WHAT-IF ROMANCE PRINT with NSFW OPTION gets unlocked! For this print you'll get to decide which The Young Protectors character you'd want our favorite supervillain to be with if Kyle were not an option! Curious to see The Annihilator and Tsunami kissing and maybe a whole lot more? If this stretch goal gets unlocked, you might just get your chance!
- at $110,000, not only will that place us in the Top 20 Most Funded Comics Kickstarters of all time (!), not only would that unlock your 29th Trading card, but this stretch goal also UNLOCKS ALL REMAINING ORIGIN CARDS! "Play your cards right" in the votes and you could get three bonus trading cards with this (and also lock-in full sets of POWERS, ROMANCE and ORIGIN cards as your reward!)
- and then at $115,000, the KYLE WHAT-IF ROMANCE PRINT with NSFW OPTION gets unlocked, where you'll get to decide which The Young Protectors character you'd want Kyle to be with if The Annihilator were out of the picture! Want to see Kyle kissing Spooky (and maybe doing a whole lot more)? Now you can!
Will we hit any of those stretch goals? Fingers crossed! But for now it's time for me to send you your next BACKERS ONLY voting link!
Thank you so much for your amazing support, for your amazing generosity and for your amazing enthusiasm! It's so great to hear from you via email that you're finding this project to be a lot of fun. I did my best to think of ways to make it that way so that just makes me so happy to hear!
This is it! The home stretch! Only 4 days left and then it's over! Please keep doing the awesome job you're doing spreading the word!
You all ROCK! More soon!
