Creating Web3’s Greatest Superheroes at 247 Comics
Welcome to 247.
247 is where we’re living the dream and welcome all who want in on it. We are a creator-led project where art and story are championed above all. With our creators’ vision and the support of our community, we are innovating and adapting the comic book industry for Web3.
247 Comics is a creator-led project that is focused on innovating and adapting the comic book and manga industry for Web3. Our comic book creator teams are world-class, diverse, and renown for their art and stories, with prior and current experience at Marvel, DC, Netflix, and more.
Our original comic book titles have been two years in the making, with six original titles currently in production, and three more in process. Our very first original title to be released is Genesis, written and created by Sean Chen, the legendary Marvel and DC comic book artist known for designing the modern-day Iron Man. A pfp collection is planned to be released in connection with each original comic book title, starting with Genesis.
With no shortage of ambition, one of the company’s goals is to help develop a sustainable ecosystem for comic book creators and to disrupt the publishing model for comics and manga. We currently have nine original titles in the works with partnership-publishing models with our creator teams where they participate in all forms of revenue for the life of the intellectual property (IP).
The company is venture-backed and is here to stay, with each core team member’s equity vesting over a four-year period.
Our project lead Carl Choi is a serial entrepreneur with a successful track record in various sectors across the entertainment industry, including experiential events, nightlife, film/television, music, and more. Our product and developer team includes members with experience from META (Facebook), Airbnb, Uber, banking/finance, and other fintech companies, with a big vision to build a digital reader that brings comics back to the masses and fills a need in the market as more creators are looking to bring their comics to digital audiences.
Sean Chen is our art lead, with 20+ years of experience in comics and known for drawing iconic Marvel and DC superheroes, including Wolverine, Iron Man, X-Men, Nova, Batman Beyond, and more. Our creative director Mickey Finnegan is an Emmy award-winning director and currently writing/directing cinematics for Wizards of the Coast (Dungeons and Dragons, Magic the Gathering). Our production manager AJ Vargas hails from Marvel Studios, where he was formerly manager of visual development.
A Web3-native growth team led by Calista Wu, charged with innovating marketing, community, and partnerships, is comprised of well-known and trusted Web3 builders who have been onboarded to facilitate bridging comic book and manga fans and creators with the Web3 space. Additional core team members have been hand-selected based on various experiences that are capable of building 247 Comics into a global brand. Our advisors, which feature top leaders in the Web3, film/television, and comic book industries, have not yet been announced.
