CryptoPunks is one of the most widely-recognizable and lucrative NFT projects of all time. The legendary collection of pixelated avatars has inspired numerous offshoots, from their collaboration with SaveArtSpace—bringing Punks to billboards around the US—to RTFKT Studios’ invocation of the collection in their sneaker project.
One of the most interesting uses of the CryptoPunks characters that I’ve come across, from both a technical and artistic perspective, is the PUNKS Comic, Issue 1, “The Hunt for the Lost Robbies” by Pixel Vault. By building off of existing static IP, the team behind Pixel Vault creates a more dynamic existence for collectors. Their flagship property, PUNKS Comic, launched earlier this month on May 10th.
