NFT platform Curio has announced it will drop NFTs (non-fungible tokens) based on the 

Concrete Park

 comic series. 

The digital collectibles will be released in two series (five characters and five covers ) on April 2 and continuing throughout May with varying tiers of rarity.

"At its core, 

Concrete Park

 is a true underdog story," says Erika Alexander, co-creator, 

Concrete Park.

 "A major Hollywood executive once told us — two Black sci-fi enthusiasts and comic book creators — 'Black people don't like science fiction because they don't see themselves in the future.' He was wrong because, in a post- "Black Panther" world, Hollywood has come knocking for 

Concrete Park

."

To accompany the drops, Curio will release five behind-the-scenes videos featuring Alexander, the graphic novel's making, and how the series is embracing new blockchain NFT technology.

"Like Curio, Concrete Park and its creators have always been innovators," says Juan M. Hernandez, chief executive officer, Curio. "As lifelong collectors

ourselves, we know that building connections to audiences is the most important thing for any fandom. This collaboration presents an entirely new digital experience that allows fans, collectors and NFT enthusiasts alike to embrace a direct relationship with the artists."

The first drop on April 2 included 100 editions of official 

Concrete Park

 character art of the lead character, Luca.

"The environment is completely different than it was four years ago," says Tony Puryear, co-creator, 

Concrete Park

. "When we first released 

Concrete Park

, we were outsiders. Now, with NFT technology, we're taking full ownership of our art and story world to create a fan experience that is rich and meaningful, allowing our fans to collect the future."
