In 2008, Marvel Comics announced it would make its superhero characters available in plastic toys and statues, and the idea was taken around the world. In the years to come, statues of Spider-Man, The Hulk, and Iron Man would be produced, bringing the characters to life in even more ways. But, while the idea was a great success, it wasn’t without its drawbacks.
We’re big comic book fans ourselves, so it’s hard not to be excited about a new age of licensed, collectible comics and other products. However, with all the hype, there’s a definite danger of overlooking what’s really important: the stories and characters behind these products. This week on TGN, we’re going to review a couple of titles to see what we think about these new NFTs. We’ll check out Miles Morales: Spider-Man and Deadpool: Suicide Kings.
How Will NFTs Change The World Of Comics?
In this day and age, the digital comic industry is constantly changing and evolving. New platforms are being developed, and new companies are joining the fray. NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) are a hot topic in the digital comic industry right now, and their implementation will have a huge impact on how comics and comic books are consumed by consumers.
In a world where digital comics and e-books are the new norms, comics are undergoing a significant change. Digital comics are a step in the right direction for the comic book industry, offering readers an experience that’s just as intimate, easy to read, and interactive as the traditional format. They allow writers and creators to reach their target audience in a more affordable, accessible, and time-saving way. Since the advent of Ethereum, the world of cryptocurrency has been growing by leaps and bounds, and our world is no exception. Blizzard recently announced their own blizzard cryptocurrency, which raised over $200 Million in a few hours. This is just the beginning and is expected to be a huge catalyst in the world of cryptocurrency.
Many people have long dreamed of telling stories through video games, but they have been limited by the technology available. That is, until now. With the advent of the blockchain, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have now been created that can be used to create, fund, and distribute video games. In the past few months, Disney acquired the rights to make a Marvel film based on the iconic X-Men anti-hero character Wolverine. The acquisition of the X-Men film rights by Disney is a very exciting development for the comic book community, given Marvel’s close relationship with the Marvel film studio. What comic book fans may not know is how this acquisition will affect the future of “NFTs” in the comic book industry. X-Men has always had a strong connection to the comic book industry, and its characters have been a great source of revenue for both Marvel and other comic book publishers.
The world of comics (and all other forms of entertainment) is shifting rapidly, and we’ve got an idea of where it’s all heading. We’ve already seen the impact of blockchain on the world of music, and we’re already seeing the impact of the internet of things on the world of gaming. So, what can we expect to see in the world of comics? As the blockchain becomes more widely adopted, we’re going to see more and more titles that become easily tradable. There’s no need to worry about not being able to trade or sell a comic you’ve purchased online or at a store in the future. You’ll simply have an online marketplace where you can purchase and sell comics, just as you would at a physical store. Blockchain technology has been getting a lot of attention in recent months, with the likes of Ethereum and NEO earning millions by betting on the technology. But NFTs could be the real disruptor, as they are designed to be non-fungible, meaning items cannot be replicated or cloned. As a result, they are expected to be used to create new digital collectibles that can be traded or used as a form of payment.
Comics have had a lasting impact on pop culture. A major reason why this is the case is due to the fact that characters and stories in comics are easily transferable to other mediums. Whether it’s the superhero genre that has been so prevalent, the many different genres of comics, or even cartoons and anime, the stories and characters are often very popular in all forms.
