Fluke, Ladies and Gentlemen.
We have new Fan Art from DaniVilliers. And… it’s Kyle and The Annihilator as My Little Pony ponies! I cannot tell you how much seeing this tickles me. (It’s taking all my willpower not to start belting out “If you want to ride… ride the white pony!“) And I know we count more than one brony among our readership here. You have to check this out. (Thanks, DaniVilliers!)
Look down below! We’re now at $257 towards the next bonus page! Woot!
Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Alba C. (who makes their third generous donation to The Young Protectors!) & Olga W. (who makes their fifth generous donation to The Young Protectors!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Elaine T., Olivia G. & a new Megan S. for their generous donations over the last few days!
And OMG, floored-and humbled, deeply grateful, superhero strength hugs go out to longtime The Young Protectors superfriend Meagan S. whose amazingly generous $100 donation marks their sixth amazingly generous donation to this comic! You rock, Meagan!
Thank you all so, so much! It looks like it won’t be long before we have the next bonus page. (And as it turns out, I think you’ll like the timing…)
So, this is one of my favorite pages of art in all the comic so far. And it’s all about the boys. It should come as no surprise to you that I like 2D guys and I think that Adam did an exceptional job with making the guys on this page cute, especially our buddy Fluke. But in real life, what I like the most is what some would call “sweet-faced” guys. And for me, that usually translates as a guy with a roundish face and a great smile. I’m a sucker for that. And so when I see Fluke in Panel 2 drawn with that roundish face, those bulging biceps and that cocky smile… Well, I’ll just say it puts a smile on my face too.
(Actually, it’s not all about the guy linework for me on this page. I think Vero did a stunning job with the texture of that background building, the character rendering, and really just everything. And of course, Adam just nailed the “acting” of the characters on this page—totally captured the vibe I was going for in the script. This might not have the flashy fire effects of the last few updates, but like I said, this really is one of my favorite pages so far, art-wise.)
Anyhoo! Enough about me and my affection for 2D hunks. Let’s hear about your affection for 2D hunks! What kind of 2D guy do you like? And how does that relate to what you like IRL?
Oh, and I should mention that now that we’ve got everyone’s powers identified, it’s time for a very special next page. You won’t want to miss it. Hope to see you there!
