END INTERLUDE ONE.
All right-y! I promised some exciting news, so here I am with some EXCITING NEWS!
I’ve just now launched a Kickstarter Project for printing a Young Protectors book! This book would include the Prologue, Chapter One and this Interlude along with other special features, including excerpts from a Classified Dossier on The Annihilator (which reveals his secret history along with other cool details about the superheroes and supervillains of my world.)
By backing the Kickstarter you’ll be 1) making this book actually possible and 2) getting a chance to be first in line to get the book when it’s printed. (And if you’re in the U.S., you also get free shipping!) In additional to that, there are a whole lot of other goodies that will be available to backers should the project succeed! (Including a little something a lot of you have been asking for in my comics that I’m calling “The Full Monty.” Be sure to look for that section in the Kickstarter page if you’ve been wanting to see a bit more of The Young Protectors.)
Getting the word out really is the hardest part for me, so if you would like to see The Young Protectors as a book or would like to make the other rewards possible, please let people know about this Kickstarter using the Facebooks and the Twitters and the reddits and Tumblrs and the anything else you can think of. That would totally help me out. (And if you happen to know any celebs or media folks who might like this comic, please let them know too!)
I worked really hard to try to make this Kickstarter project for The Young Protectors as fun as possible. So, if you’re enjoying The Young Protectors, please take a moment to check out my Kickstarter project and let me know what you think in the comments!
All right-y! So that’s the BIG news. Other news!
We had our seventh bonus page in a row on Wednesday and just yesterday hit the bonus target again which means that in addition to our regular Saturday updates and a bonus page on Wednesday, May 29th, there will be an additional bonus page on Wednesday, June 5th! WOO HOO! Y’all are UNSTOPPABLE!
Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Paul L. & Charlene C. (both making their second generous donation to The Young Protectors!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Kenneth K., Whitney W., Kate C. & Scott P. for their generous donations over the last few days!
Big hugs go out to long-time friends of The Young Protectors joshua G. and Robert B. for their super-generous $25 donations! And this makes both joshua’s and Robert’s sixteenth super-generous donations to this comic!
And finally, ZOMG, deeply humbled; deeply, deeply grateful hugs go out to long-time MEGA-friend Nicolas F. for their stunningly generous $200 donation! And this makes Nicolas’ ninth $200 donation to this comic! I’m totally blown away, Nicolas! Thank you so, so much! 😀
Thank you all so much for your generous support! When I started this comic after Artifice, I wasn’t sure if anyone would really like it. It was quite different from what I’ve done before. And yet here we are with the possibility of actually making this little webcomic into a gorgeous softcover graphic novel—and it’s all because of you and the amazing support you’ve shown us over the last year. You all are the real superheroes of The Young Protectors. I am tremendously grateful to all of you for your support and encouragement and just all-around coolness. THANK YOU!
So! Our little comedic Interlude comes to an end. I hope you enjoyed getting to know the other Young Protectors better (and me indulging in a bit of AlexHumor.)
What’s next? Why it’s going to be Chapter Two where we pick up with Kyle and The Annihilator on Kyle’s birthday. Or I should say, the night of Kyle’s birthday. Are you curious to find out what kind of present The Annihilator is going to give Kyle? (The unwrapping is always the best part, don’t you think?)
Tune in this Wednesday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀
