The SPOOKY CAP is UNLOCKED!
Let me just say
We just crossed $100,000! (I did a total double-take when I saw the numbers jump from 5 to 6 digits! Big difference!)
This means that all backers pledging at the YOUNG HERO level or above will now be sent their very own SPOOKY CAP!
The Spooky Cap is of course part of fan-favorite character Spooky Jones' casual superhero uniform and unlocking this stretch goal means that now I'll send all backers at Young Hero and above an embroidered cap that I will make as authentic to what Spooky wears in the comic as I physically can!
This is real! It's going to happen! There will be Spooky Caps! WOO HOO!
(And of course, if getting an authentic Spooky Cap sent to you sounds like something that you'd like to have, you can raise your pledge level to Young Hero or above on the main page of our project anytime before our project ends on Monday.)
Wow. You all are totally awesome!
Votes continue for two previously unlocked stretch goals!
Voting continues for the first Stretch Goal you unlocked today—the KICKSTARTER-EXCLUSIVE BOOKMARK that will be sent out to all backers at the FULL CITIZEN level or above. If you haven't cast your vote yet for that, you can find the link here. (Currently 905 ballots have been cast and Kyle is in the lead to be featured on this full-color bookmark.)
Voting is also on-going for your 26TH TRADING CARD. If you haven't cast your vote for that yet, you can do that here. (Currently 513 ballots have been cast and THE ANNIHILATOR FIRST-TIME CARD is in the lead here.)
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:
(Time for me to get on the stick and update all the Young Hero and above pledge levels with that Spooky Cap! :) )
Well, we're now at $100,528 and at $102,500 your 27TH TRADING CARD is unlocked!
And what's after that?
- 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!
A more complete list of all the upcoming stretch goals can be found on the main page. And they are also described in more detail in this update.
Oh! And a bunch of you have started chatting in the Comments about what new stretch goal you're looking forward to. I'd love to hear from all of you about that, so if you get a moment, please respond in the Comments section of this post, and let me know which next stretch goal is the one you really find appealing.
And will we hit any of those stretch goals? Fingers crossed! But for now I'm just so psyched that I'm actually going to get to make real, authentic Spooky Caps! And you're going to get to have them!!!
Thank you so much for this wonderful, crazy day! And for making such wonderful, wonderful things happen!
Just 3 days left! Please keep spreading the word! I'm excited to see what's going to happen next! :D
You really are SUPERHEROES!
