Sorry for the confusion! The other characters will appear in the coming issues, and anyone who bought into the project will receive the first three PDFs free!)

Thanks to Jon for stopping by, and check the kickstarter out at:

(no, the link didn't get cut off, that's how it appears on Kickstarter's site!)

* Slight update on the info presented in the podcast. Jon and I spoke briefly about the "Character Promotion" reward listed on the kickstarter. Correcting our information, the characters will *not* have illustrations, they will simply be promoted on the M&M website. I do believe they will accept your own art if you want to submit art with the character, however!
