Archie Comics to debut NFT effort with ‘Archieverse: Eclipse Collection’

In partnership with Palm NFT Studio, a plan has emerged for fan-generated stories to “empower fans to author future series.”

Archie Comics and Palm NFT Studio have announced plans to produce Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) that will give fans the opportunity to submit storylines that could be used by the publisher.

The project will be called “Archieverse: Eclipse Collection,” and is scheduled to launch on May 16.

In a tweet, Palm NFT writes, "The Blood Moon Eclipse ushers in a new phase of the Archieverse. Join the @ArchieComics Discord and participate in challenges to collect rewards."

A statement from the company explains, “Marking a major milestone in comic book history, Archie Comics is leveraging the blockchain to empower fans to author future series: incorporating fan-generated art and stories into the Archieverse, and directly rewarding contributors for their creativity.”

NFTs are stored on a blockchain. Because the tokens are unique, they are different from cryptocurrencies that are fungible.

The company says in a press release, “Priced at $66.66 each and created by Archie Comics, Palm NFT Studio and Archie artists Laura Braga and Vincezo Federici, Archieverse: Eclipse spans 66,666 generative characters and 3,000,000,000 outcomes linked by an ominous prophecy. What happens next is up to fans.”

Archie Comics refers to the new project as “radically accessible.”

The approach is referred to as community-driven and an evolution of the Archie brand. According to the official splash page, “Archieverse: Eclipse is the beginning of a new journey into the Archieverse — one that is centered on rewarding your creativity. Will the path be revealed, or will you forge it yourself?”
