Comic Book OGs Cook Up A New NFT Project
What do you get when OG comic artists jump into the NFT kitchen to start cooking?
You are about to find out.
Ingredients: All-star cast of artists, first of its kind in the NFT space, heroes, monsters, and the secret spice mama adds to the sauce.
What comes out is an interactive NFT comic book 🙀.
Hold up, hold up. I know what you are thinking.
There are already comic book NFTs.
Yes, there are but what makes this different is it's an original (not like Marvel bringing old comics to a new platform), and it is interactive (makes it different from other originals like DC's Batman: The Legacy Cowl).
Who's cooking up this baby
It's a startup called LightningWorks with their all-star lineup.
Along with founder Geoffrey McCabe and CEO Jordan Fiksenbaum, they've got Jim Lee (iconic co-publisher of DC Comics), Scott Snyder (legendary DC Comic writer - Batman: Court of Owls), DG Franchin (Marvel), Bassy Bob (Grammy Award winner producing artists like Bob Dylan and Aretha Franklin) and more...
Ok... Let's get to what you are waiting for, THE PROJECT.
Here's what we know
- The NFT project is called Siege Worlds and has been in stealth development for 3 years.
- It's an interactive comic and 3D game using blockchain tech. It's got a first-person shooter, P2E rewards for interaction and cooperation with other players, and NFT weapons related to characters in the story available once by minting the comic.
- The story is about a mysterious island in which real-world historical heroes who have died are reborn to fight against monsters emerging from the sea, only to be reborn continuously while searching for the meaning of their predicament.
- Characters are loosely based on samurai Miyamoto Musashi, Joan of Arc, gladiator Flamma and Annie Oakley.
- The comic has easter eggs, hidden clues and secrets that can be used in the game.
- The first one is minting now and will be revealed Feb 13 at 9 am.
One more thing... the trailer
If you're a comic book fan, this is some pretty awesome stuff! Lightning Works bringing the combination of an interactive comic and a game is adding a new level of excitement and experimentation to the world of NFTs. Watching this space closely 👀
CCGs Keep Stacking Up In Web3
There's another collectible card game in town. CCGs are starting to sound like DJ Khalid, another one!
It's called CarFT.
The mastermind behind the game is a fellow called Morgan Pezzo.
Should you check it out to play or learn from it?
Here's what we know so far
- It's a casual game you can pick up and play for a few minutes whenever you like. Think Marvel Snaps.
- The objective of CarFT is simple - collect cars and maintain them, with the cars represented as cards.
- Players can own the cars they buy in the game on-chain and even resell their cars to make some money back.
- There's no limit to the size of your garage, but the power of the card decks you play at virtual events will be limited to keep the gameplay strategic.
- With a vast collection, you can take your cars to virtual car shows and events to rank on leaderboards in your area.
- The team is also considering a monthly subscription model that could offer the chance to win real-life prizes.
- They plan to launch in spring as a mobile or desktop card game as a free to play, but you can spend as much money as you like to speed up your gameplay and build up your virtual garage.
What we are waiting to see
This one sounds pretty cool, but there are not a lot of details out just yet. We know there will be some kind of "Maintenance" with these cars.
Will this be entirely on-chain? The pack system seems similar in shape to how NBA Topshot sells its packs, but we don't have any indication of supply limits for certain makes or models.
This truly will be a Wait and See situation, but who doesn't like collecting cars? If you are interested, check it out below.
- WEMADE and Metagravity announce a strategic alliance to bring the vision of a connected gaming experience to life.
- Understanding Initial Game Offerings (IGO) and how they work.

- Wagmi and Lucky Kat are partnering with Mysten Labs to launch the game Cosmocadia on Sui Mainnet.
