PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate Release
New NFT Platform Comic Boxels Opposes Big Publisher Trends by Encouraging Original Comic Art NFT Sales from Creators while Cross Promoting with Releases from Publishers
Arsenic Lullaby, Bart Sears, Howard Chaykin, Josh Blaylock and Joel H Herrera Join for Inaugural MOONWARS Auction Series Launching Saturday Sept 25 at 12:00 PM (CST)
CHICAGO - Comic Boxels is opening its virtual doors with the NFT Art Auction and Open Sale series: MOONWARS. Its "Genesis Launch" features an all-star ensemble of comic and crypto creators banding together to execute their visions of this high-concept Battle Royale for the moon, including art from Josh Blaylock (Chill City NFTs, Mercy Sparx, Punks Comic, G.I. Joe), Arsenic Lullaby (AKA Doug Paszkiewicz - Comedy Central, Mad Magazine), Howard Chaykin (American Flagg, Hey Kids! Comics!), Bart Sears (Turok, X-O Manowar), and Joel H Herrera (Barack the Barbarian, The Encoded, Trailer Park Boys), beginning Saturday, September 25, at 12:00 PM CST.
MOONWARS is an endearing yet absurd concept conceived by comic creator Josh Blaylock to bring together heavy hitters from both the crypto art and professional comic book scenes with an overlapping theme made for both audiences. MOONWARS tells the story of a distant future where everyone has made it "to the moon" (a popular meme in crypto circles), but there's just one problem: there's no room left!
There will be 1-of-1 NFT Auctions, physical art auctions (with digital certification), and open sales (limited to 150 pieces each).
Under the direction of co-founders Josh Blaylock and Guy Vider, ComicBoxels.com has created a platform that, instead of hindering artists' ability to sell their original art like the big conglomerates, encourages it as a way to help promote the launch of new comic collectibles, and welcomes all publishers to let them assist them in doing the same.
"We not only plan to sell original NFT art auctions timed with digital comic collectibles, but the actual art from the specific comics we're releasing," said Blaylock. "It's insane that the big guys are blockading talent from selling art when they could be working together to create the ultimate promotional tie-in. Letting the talent sell their pieces while hyping their releases."
Comic Boxels' team not only includes its comic publisher/creator Josh Blaylock and technologist Guy Vider co-founders, but a promotional and advisory team including blockchain expert Disruption Joe Hernandez, voxel artist and developer Bitpixi, motion graphics animator Luis Colindres, and comic book publishing expert Kit Caoagas.
Launching in Fall of 2021, Comic Boxels will each contain a bundle of NFTs from a specific comic book issue, including randomly selected animated panels, an animated cover, random sketches and upgrades, and a full length, unaltered PDF of the issue to read without interrupting the traditional experience.
