Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment

Jonathan Strickland knows a thing or two about how stuff works, so when he turns his knowledgeable eye toward how mundane, behind-the-scenes matters work in fiction, I pay attention. That's exactly what he has in mind with META, or Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment.

He wants to peel back the veil that usually lies between us and and the mundane reality of superheroes' lives. How do you interview to become a henchman? How do super-moms find affordable daycare? What sort of superpower do you need to easily master the complexities of branding?

Strickland's META Kickstarter project aims at answering these questions and more in 16 web-series episodes, but there's a problem; he's only got 16 hours to go, as of the time of this writing. If your mind is burning to know why it's a bad idea to build your secret lair under the subway system, I urge you to check out the Kickstarter, watch the video below, and help make his dream a reality!
