LightningWorks, a company focused on combining comic books with interactive games and NFTs, has announced that its founder, Geoff McCabe, has invested $2.5 million in seed funding to bring his vision to life. After self-funding the company since 2020, LightningWorks says that it is now prepared to launch the world’s first NFT comic book.
McCabe believes that the excitement of owning limited-edition storytelling art remains as exhilarating as it was in his childhood. However, with the increasing digitization of the world, there is a risk that collectible comic books may fade into obscurity. To prevent this, McCabe has dedicated his life savings to preserve the magic of comic books in the digital realm.
