Blitmap is an open-source science-fantasy universe expanding into comics next week with a six-issue series. Titan Comics is taking a new twist in the series’ release, using a printing technique that turns each issue into a unique variant cover. Eat your heart out, variant cover collectors! Just like Star Trek has its old Vulcan mantra “infinite diversity in infinite combinations,” this series will come close to that. Each issue is sold in “blind” bags, so you don’t know what you’re going to get, and it appears the publisher can produce an “infinite” number of variations.
Take a look inside the first issue below, courtesy of Titan Comics.
The comic series introduces readers to the saga of the Blitnauts, guardians of the Blitmaps, and the Logos, a faction that worships extinct brands. Written by Jack Timmer and illustrated by Matias Basla, the story is set against a landscape of solarpunk vistas and an interdimensional game-like realm called The Static.
The coloring is enticing. No, you can’t quite tell what is going on here. But if you’re a fan of Minecraft or Micronauts, Blitmap looks like it may be targeting you.
For those intrigued, add Blitmap to your pull list at Elite Comics, or your local comic shop now.
