The world of comics is set to witness a transformative collaboration as actor Daniel Wu and esteemed artist Sean Chen unveil Evermind, a riveting new comic series. This venture gains even more significance as it marks the inaugural release from the newly teased content studio, 247 Comics. With the project now actively seeking funding on Kickstarter, fans, and backers have a unique opportunity to be part of a pioneering journey in the world of comics.
Evermind –A Fusion of Talent and Vision
Daniel Wu, celebrated for his stellar performances in Into the Badlands, Westworld, and Europa Report, has always been deeply passionate about Sci-Fi. Teaming up with Sean Chen, renowned for his artwork in Marvel’s Iron Man and Valiant, Wu sees this collaboration as a golden opportunity to create a unique narrative. “Launching my first comic and being part of this exciting new IP with Sean Chen and 247 Comics is a dream come true,” says Wu.
Evermind delves deep into the life of innovator Lucas Zhang, whose character bears a striking resemblance to Wu. Zhang, a pioneer in neurolink technology, faces a moral dilemma as his groundbreaking inventions, initially aimed at transcending human limitations, now serve purposes of destruction and desire. The narrative beautifully captures the strained relationship between Zhang and his daughter, reminiscent of the complex bond between Steve Jobs and his child.
Sean Chen shares, “This relationship is the story engine that plays out against a series of events where you wonder if the gulf between them will ever be closed and what will be the fate of the father’s soul.”
Wu Wants to Continue Breaking Boundaries in Hollywood and Beyond with Evermind
Wu’s venture into comics stems from a desire to create opportunities rather than waiting for them. He believes that comics offer a limitless canvas, unbounded by the budgetary constraints of film and television. “Kickstarter gives us the opportunity to prove the viability of this property for multiple mediums, and bring fans along for the entire ride,” Wu adds.
Moreover, Wu’s sentiments resonate with many minority actors in Hollywood who often find themselves pigeonholed into stereotypical roles. This comic venture represents a broader movement of artists taking charge of their narratives and breaking free from traditional Hollywood constraints.
Carl Choi, Publisher and Co-Founder of 247 Comics, envisions a transformative future for the comic industry. “The landscape of content distribution is evolving rapidly,” says Choi. With a network of top creators, 247 Comics aims to revolutionize the way we consume comic content, making it more interactive, immersive, and in tune with the digital age.
