Don’t make Kyle angry. You wouldn’t like Kyle when he’s angry…
Aw, who am I kidding? Get angry, Kyle! Kick some ass! 😀
In other news, I’m working on the written content for The Young Protectors Trading Cards (one of the Kickstarter rewards that I’ll make available for sale to the general public once the Kickstarter backers have gotten them.). The backers have gotten first dibs on giving me input on what information they’d want to see on a character’s card, but now that I’ve recorded their top choices, I’m also curious to hear what y’all might want to know. There will be four different types of cards (POWERS, ROMANCE, ORIGIN & FIRST-TIME) and every character in Volume One gets their own card for each of those types (except for Hunter & Killer who share a card). Right now, I’m looking to get your input on just two of the card types: POWERS and ROMANCE.
I’ve set up Google Moderator links for each kind of card. With those links (and a free Google account), you can make suggestions and also vote on others’s suggestions for what you’d want to see on each card. Remember that these are just 2.5″ x 3.5″ trading cards, so any suggestions you come up with would have to be answered on the card with just a few words, certainly no more than a sentence. So, “What is the character’s ideal age range for someone they’d want to date?” would work because I could answer that with something short like “25-40”. Something like “Describe the character’s idea of a perfect first date” would be difficult to fit into even a whole sentence and thus there wouldn’t be room for it on the card and I couldn’t use it. So keep that in mind when coming up with and voting on suggestions. Also, I’m wanting to answer the same “questions” for all the characters for a certain card’s type, so please make sure your suggestions are general enough to apply to every character.
The POWERS CARD is meant to detail “a character’s abilities and other cool superhero/supervillain stats including their ages, how long they’ve been active and real names.” But what exactly would you like to know about each character’s abilities on a trading card?
Share your ideas here:
The ROMANCE CARD is meant offer “details about a character’s romantic interests.” So we’re mostly talking interests here—likes and dislikes, crushes, etc. Many questions about experiences would already be answered with the FIRST TIME card.
But if you have a question about romance that you think is really special and that lots of folks would want to know about a certain character, feel free to suggest it. Something like “Who is this character dating right now?” would be fair game and not necessarily covered by the FIRST TIME card. (Although if the question is likely to spoil the plot, I won’t be able to use it. But you knew that. 😉 )
I already have specific ideas about what I want to include on each type of card, but I also want to know what you’d really like to see, so have fun!

So! Kyle looks like he doesn’t want this Annihilator/demon deal to go through. Chains are snapping, flames are blasting and he even seems to have burnt The Annihilator! They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but Chef Kyle seems to be inventing his own cookbook here. I wonder what’s next on the menu?
next Saturday this Wednesday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀
