‘.Self’ #1 Debuts On ComiXology Originals From Christopher Sebela And Cara McGee
by Olly MacNamee
Dropping today on comiXology Origianls is new digital-first title, .Self, from writer Christopher Sebela (Crowded; High Crimes), artist Cara McGee (Black Canary: Ignite; Star Wars), colourist Rebecca Nalty (Finger Guns), and letterer Aditya Bidikar (These Savage Shores, Afterlift). A five-part series exploring the world of digital assets and our place in it, as Sebela explains:
“In this new era of crypto and NFTs I wanted to explore the idea that even we ourselves are capable of being exploitable digital assets. In .Self, we play with the concept that you can see yourself in different bodies that have chosen to follow different paths and dreams you may have let go of over the course of your life either because the dream was silly, or you changed, or life just didn’t allow for it.
.Self is a book about someone who is comfortable for the first time in their life and then realizes that that doesn’t actually equate to happiness.”
