The Death of Captain America (Patreon Exclusive Review Preview)

 

The aftermath story of Marvel’s Civil War is a story which holds no punches, but those punches are rather soft. Unlike its predecessor, “The Death of Captain America” doesn’t have the luxury of falling back on other heroes and villains in the Marvel universe, when things get a bit dull. This is primarily a Captain America tale, or rather, the repercussions of his death to everyone who both knew him and knew of him.

There are a plethora of characters in this story, not as grand as Marvel’s Civil War, but enough to keep it mildly interesting. The political undercurrent which kept the story afloat barely gets by with simple tropes. The main cast includes Agent 13, Bucky Barnes, the Falcon and many others on both sides of the compass of good and evil, including those in the morally grey area.

Changes for 2016: Patreon and Amazon Affiliate Links

As of January 2016, I’ve been doing this for over five years. It’s my aspiration to turn this into a business. Granted having a single focus on reviews of a relatively niche market isn’t exactly the best business model. Especially when a lot of people creating hour upon hours of content are doing it out of the kindness of their hearts, it seems kind of sleazy to start charging people.

But don’t you pay a newspaper a subscription fee to read the news they provide, either online or off? When I started this site, it was a way to give back to the community. Slowly, this idea of turning it into a business grew inside my head. Finally, after much debate with myself I’ve decided to take the middle road. The content will always be free, but if you want exclusive bonuses, I’ve set up a montly patreon account.

I tried a similar approach during my first couple of years and quickly learned I needed a following before anyone would be willing to give me money. No one subscribed and my approach of getting new followers to the site was sloppy at best. I’m honored and extraordinarily lucky to have as many twitter followers, Facebook fan page likes, and other social media outlets. For all of you out there who come back every week for a new review, I sincerely thank you.

You may have noticed a new addition to the website header called “Help the Site.” I’m hoping the directions found on the page are self-explanatory. In case they aren’t I’ve included a FAQs for the Patreon. If enough people ask about the amazon affiliate links, I’ll update the page.

Anyway, go to Patreon.com/adr to sign up.

Patreon FAQs

Why Patreon? Why not donations?
Donations would be a fine way to raise money for the site, but I’d rather
give something to fans as a token of my appreciation and Patreon is the best way to do that currently.

What will the rewards be?
Currently there are 2 rewards you can sign up for. The patreon is monthly, as I publish reviews every week. Those rewards are an exclusive review each month at the $1 level and an ebook sent to you every month at $3.

Will free audio dramas or review requested productions be exclusive?
No. All audio productions released for free on the internet and/or sent to me through the proper channels, located at AudioDramaReviews.com/Request will remain accessible to all visitors of the site.

The exclusive reviews will be for stories I’ve spent my own money. These will mostly be audible audiobooks and graphic audio productions. Since I do this every week, more stories to review is better than less.
