We, here at the Earth First! Journal, know that funding print media is a constant struggle against the cesspool of the internet. So we’re glad to throw our support (ironically, via an EF! Newswire post) towards other folks working to put incendiary projects into peoples’ hands.

This week on Kickstarter, a campaign is launching for a unique new type of superhero team: Damon Guerrero and Jeanette Francis are animal liberators… gritty anti-heroes in the mold of Dexter or Batman.

Synopsis: Damon & Jeanette are new kinds of super-heroes. They don’t fight bank robbers or intergalactic villains. They don’t protect the humans from invading alien armies. They rescue animals who are being beaten and tortured.

And, driven by their own traumas, Damon & Jeanette exact brutal revenge on the morally bankrupt people who derive pleasure from torturing defenseless animals.
