Hmm. Intriguing… I wonder what other things we don’t know about The Annihilator’s history…
So! The Young Protectors Volume One Kickstarter project is going strong! We’ve just cleared $63,000 and that means that backers are now getting a ton of bonus stuff:
- in addition to getting a gorgeous trade paperback of the Prologue, Chapter One and Interlude One, the book will now include a 25-page bonus comic starring fan-favorite characters Commander and Spooky Jones, a story that won’t appear here on this site!
- backers are also now getting sixteen (!) 2.5″ x 3.5″ trading cards of the characters, including ROMANCE CARDS which have sexy pin-up art of the character on the front and intimate details about their romantic interests on the back. Curious if Tsunami really is repressed? Want to know if Commander ever walks on the wild side? Now you can find out!
- all backers will be sent a KICKSTARTER-EXCLUSIVE PDF of The Annihilator Dossier detailing his secret history and other intriguing details about the world The Young Protectors live in!
- two NSFW Romance Prints, sent to all backers as digital downloads, including one of Spooky Jones together with Tsunami! I wonder who will be on top? 😉
- and because backers unlocked the Full Monty Reward, they will receive special bonus art featuring the full-frontal view of the characters that I’d never show in the regular comic pages. Have you been wanting to see more of Kyle and the gang than what I’ve been showing here? (And will ever show here.) Become a backer and you’ll get to see it all!
And there’s even more cool stuff ahead– and as a backer, you’ll have the right to vote on what the rewards will be! Potential new bonus rewards will include
- an Action Team-Up/Battle Print where, through their votes, backers will get to choose two characters for an action scene and then decide in a second vote whether those characters are teaming up or battling each other—backers’ choice! Curious whether Tsunami’s water trumps Kyle’s fire? Now you can find out!
- Origin Trading Cards which offer a narration about how a character discovered their powers and chose to be a superhero (or villain!). The card art would feature one of the first uses of that character’s power!
- a Sexy Height Chart with our guys lined up by height in their underwear—and backers can vote to have me create this with their underwear off! See how our guys really measure up!
- a Truth of Dare Bonus Comic where backers will be able to create and vote on questions and dares for the team to answer. And because it’s “for charity”, team member will be very open to your most daring of dares!
- and if things get really crazy, all backers at the Young Hero level or above will get their very own Spooky Cap!
If any of this sounds tempting to you, don’t miss your chance! Each of the votes for choosing who’s in the rewards only lasts 24 hours and then they are over! Come join the fun and get the chance to see the Full Monty of your favorite character!
So that’s the latest Kickstarter news! In other news, we have some lovely new Fan Art from long-time contributor Kinzie K.—it’s Kyle in his Red Hot costume created with copic markers. Do check it out!
On Wednesday, we had our ninth bonus page in a row! Then, y’all tipped over the donation target yet again this week, so that means there will be another bonus page (page 5!) this Wednesday, June 12th. And look at the donation bar below! We’re already at $80 towards the bonus page after that!
Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Charlene C. (who makes their third generous donation to The Young Protectors!), Victor R. (who makes their sixth generous donation to The Young Protectors!) & Saxon B. (who makes their twenty-eighth [!!!] generous donation to The Young Protectors!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow goes out to new supporter Anissa H. for their generous donations over the last few days!
Big hugs go out to new friend of The Young Protectors Richard L. and also to long-time friends Robert B. & joshua G. for their super-generous $25 donations! And this makes both Robert’s and joshua’s eighteenth super-generous donations to this comic! Wow!
And finally, superhero-strength hugs go out to new superfriend John-Guy L. and also to long-time superfriend James A. for their amazingly generous $50 donations! And this was not only James’s sixth amazingly generous donation to this comic, it also tipped us over the top for next week’s bonus page! Thank you so, so much, John-Guy and James!
Thank you all so much for your generous support! I’m thinking about all the cool stuff I’m going to get to make because of your support here and on the Kickstarter project and I’m over the moon with happiness. You all ROCK!
So! Seems Kyle is finally getting around to asking about The Annihilator’s past! I wonder exactly what The Annihilator is going to reveal to him?
Tune in this Wednesday to find out! Hope to see you there!
