Gay Superhero Comic Series Surpasses $14,000 Kickstarter Goal In Less Than 24 Hours

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:

The Young Protectors: Engaging the Enemy tells the story of how Kyle—a closeted, young superhero dedicated to helping everyone but himself—ascends to become one of the most powerful champions the world has ever known.

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.

The Young Protectors: Engaging the Enemy is a multi-chapter superhero comic with explosive action, sly comedy, tender romance and powerful drama. And you can read it for free at
