What’s it about?
The first arc of The Young Protectors is a coming-of-age superhero story featuring young fire-bending hero Kyle—a member of the independent Young Protectors superhero team—who falls into the power of a handsome and dangerous older super-villain.
Unlike Artifice, this one isn’t a romance—although there are certainly strong romantic themes!—and things aren’t what they seem in the beginning. It’s not actually older-supervillain/young- superhero chika chika bow wow. (And if that trope concerns you, check out this comment from returning reader, Kaden R.. Some spoilers.)
If you stick with it, you’ll get to enjoy the story of a young, gay superhero overcoming impossible odds and becoming the most powerful superhero alive with the help of his friends. (With lots of fun superhero action, humor, the “feels,” and fantastic art along the way!)
The Young Protectors: “Engaging the Enemy” is a complete story. 5 chapters and over 500 pages of free full-color comics. Lots of feels, lots of twists and turns, and lots of epic superhero action in this one.
You can read the whole arc for free starting here.
(The first chapters are also available as a trade paperback. The rest will be printed soon. Oh, and you can buy trading cards.)
