The gay superhero web comic The Young Protectors, written by Alex Woolfson, has reached his $14,000 Kicstarter goal in less than 24 hours to publish his comic in book form. As of Wednesday afternoon, over $30,000 has been pledged to kickstart the project.
According to their Kickstarter Page:
But no one ever said becoming a real hero would be easy. 🙂
The story begins with Kyle finally summoning the courage to enter a local gay bar. It’s his very first step towards accepting himself. Unfortunately for him, his very next step out of the bar places him face-to-face with The Annihilator, “the most dangerous super-villain in the world.” And the price that The Annihilator demands to keep Kyle’s secret will lead Kyle down a path fraught with danger, adventure and unexpected romance. It’s a path that will force Kyle to question what it really means to be a hero and will ultimately thrust him and his young teammates into an epic conflict against vastly superior foes.
