Less than 24 hours after launching a Kickstarter project topublish his gay superhero web comic TheYoung Protectors in book form, writer Alex Woolfson has reached his $14,000goal. Back in March, we reported on Woolfson's first Kickstarter-funded comic Artifice. Both have been tremendous successes on the crowd funding website.
"I wrote The Young Protectors because I loved action movies and superhero comics as a kid," Woolfson said. "But I never got to see what I really wanted to see and that's kick-ass genre stories with heroes who just happened to like other guys."
To foster interest in the project, Woolfson has created avariety of rewards for different levels of pledge support, including signedcopies, posters, keychains, and even chances to appear in future pages of thecomic. As of Tuesday afternoon, over $28,000 has been pledged to the project.
