    THE "YUU HASASHI" TIER: Ever wanted to be drawn into a comic book? What about starring in the final 20 pages as the Main Villain? Well this Tier is your chance!

    On top of getting the three 8x10 prints, the wallpapers, and signed Rhino... you get a Dedication in the book as our biggest supporter, you get a credit in the book as co-creator of the villain, Likeness rights, and you get a page of original artwork from the graphic novel, featuring you as the villain, signed by the artist.

    Since you are also donating so much, we will throw in an extra T-Shirt, both with an extra personalized message about you being our biggest contributor printed on both shirts, and you will get (because I doubt a Retailer would be upset over this considering how much you donated) Covers A, B, & C of the Graphic Novel, along with Cover E featuring Kevin Eastman's art. If I can work out getting Kevin's cover signed by him, I will. You will also get Cover D upon it's completion, which is our MegaCon 2013 Con Exclusive Cover, featuring art by Graven & Monica Ravenwolf, signed by them both, which will feature an homage cover to the original Crisis storyline from DC, where Superman's holding a dead Supergirl in his arms. PIC SOON.

    You also get to be on an episode of our Nerd Nation podcast to talk about donating, and how cool it feels to be a villain in a comic book; especially one as unique as this.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The person who donates this will have to sign a release form, allowing us to use your likeness, and be okay with us putting you in the role of super villain. We know we have a not of nice friends, family, and fans out there that want to be drawn in our book, so we want you to be okay with being evil in fictional form.
