So, Adam left for New York today, and Vero will return to Argentina tomorrow. We spent the weekend signing over 2500 books for the Kickstarter, and then we had a couple days to just hang out together, for the very first time. I brought them to my favorite restaurants, we talked about comics, future ideas for The Young Protectors, our favorite movies, how we met our partners, and lots more. I’ve always really enjoyed working with Adam and Vero, but I just had the most amazing week with them. I really feel like I have two new best friends. They are just awesome people, and I can’t wait until we are all together again. 🙂
The “How Spooky Got His Cap” story on the Patreon Page has generated more Comments and Likes than anything else I’ve done so far. And we’re now just $85/month away from unlocking the next Milestone Goal — the NSFW, Full Monty Digital Kickstarter Rewards for Patrons who chose to receive the Special Digital Rewards. These Full Monty Rewards show full-frontal nudity of the adult Young Protectors characters, something that I’ll never show on this site. And if we hit that Milestone Goal, the first thing I’ll send out will be the Sexy Height Chart of the Guys, which shows all the male members of The Young Protectors team lined up by height. Curious how our boys measure up? If we hit this Milestone Goal, you’ll get a chance to find out! 🙂
Folks who become Patrons now will be able to read the Spooky Jones story and enjoy all the other rewards so far posted. And, of course, Patrons who chose to get the Special Digital Rewards (which is the vast majority) continue to receive Digital Kickstarter Rewards every Wednesday and get to see special Sneak Previews every Sunday.
Over 460 of you have already become Patrons in the last month. And you joining could tip us over the next Milestone Goal! There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron, and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits!),
I want to send out my warmest thank yous out to all the new Patrons who have joined in the last few days. As you can see in the comments below, a bunch more folks have had a blue, silver, or gold YP badge added to their Disqus avatars, which means they are a Patron. If you see one of these folks, please join me in extending my thanks for directly supporting the making of this comic! And please also send out a special thanks to those exceptionally generous backers who are on the Leaderboard of Awesome page. You all ROCK!
So! Looks like The Platinum Priestess has heard of Flyboy’s “owl vision” — is there any limit to the number of pop-culture references she has access to? Will Flyboy be able to dodge her attack in time? And what else does The Platinum Priestess have up her sleeve?
Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀
