The NFT collection: A blend of influences

The Ekos collection features one-of-a-kind published colored art and new pieces inspired by a variety of influences, such as classic Marvel comics and films, the Pop Art movement, Marvel’s iconic black light posters from the 1970s, Broadway’s neon lights, and the art and energy of web3, as stated in the press release.

Turner, an American comic book artist who worked for Marvel and DC comics, passed away in 2008 at 37 years old. Steigerwald collaborated closely with Turner and also worked as a colorist for both DC and Marvel comics.

Mythos Studios is an intellectual property entertainment studio founded by Maisel and Scooter Braun. It holds a 50% stake in Aspen Comics.

Auction details and bonus NFTs

The pre-auction deposit period began on April 24, with collectors having the option to pay 10 ETH to qualify for a bonus NFT from the Ekos Genesis Art Portraits, a separate collection of 100 art pieces. The team revealed that 995 Ekos Genesis Art pieces will be made available for an 88-minute Dutch-style auction, set to take place on May 2.

Maisel stated that web3 enables more direct interaction with the community and fanbase and provides a sense of psychological and actual ownership.

A Dutch-style auction involves project developers setting a specific value, typically the ceiling or highest price, and then gradually lowering the price periodically by a fixed amount.

The collection’s announcement comes as NFT trading volumes experience a resurgence. Alchemy’s Web3 Development Report revealed a year-over-year increase of 126% in NFT trading volume.
