Kyle is actually showing us a PRO TIP in Panel 4: When being carried many miles in a single bound, it’s always good practice to make sure your tenders haven’t been lost along the way. The more you know…
SO! Guess what? WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A YOUNG PROTECTORS BOOK! My Kickstarter project to raise funds to print the Prologue, Chapter One and Interlude One as Volume One of The Young Protectors: Engaging the Enemy hit its $14,000 goal within 18 hours! Woo hoo! To everyone who backed, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Would you like to get one of those books? There’s still 26 days left on the clock for the project so you can still become a backer and get a book sent to you hot off the press (with free shipping in the U.S.!) Also, because we’ve exceeded the goal I set, backers are now triggering “stretch goals” which will be sent to them in addition to the book, such as gorgeous full-color trading cards with the The Young Protectors characters (just like those you got for your favorite superheroes as a kid!) as well as special art prints and other goodies. And as a backer, you’ll get to vote on what the next thing I’m going to make as a reward will be!
In fact, the next round of voting would be to decide on who’s going to get sexy pin-up art created for them for the first ROMANCE CARD. Want to join the fun? Then please go check out my Kickstarter project!
Also, I’d like to extend a warm thank you to two of our long-term translators ckazka (who’s been translating The Young Protectors into German) and WTCelesta (who’s been translating Artifice into Russian) for sending in a bunch of translations over the past few weeks. And I’ll be introducing a couple new translators to you next week once I have a chance to post up their translations. Please check out their fine work starting on Page One of each comic using the “Available Transcripts” drop-down menu under every page and don’t forget to let your non-English-speaking friends know where to find it!
Oh and before I forget
***THIS IS A BONUS PAGE!***

Thank you all so much for your generous support! Both with your generosity here and on the Kickstarter, you make me feel like the luckiest creator in the world. We have such awesome, supportive, thoughtful readers and I love you all—very much!
All right-y! Chapter Two begins! And things look so PRETTY! So, is it going to be nothing but sunsets and references to other people’s intellectual property for the rest of the night? Or are things going to get serious between these two? And where exactly are they?
Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there!
