Award-winning writer and co-creator of Deadpool, Fabian Nicieza, is developing the revamped storyline that will support the digital collectible program, upcoming comic book, and Liquid Avatar AR programs. Nicieza spoke fondly of the new venture.
“The Outer Space Men were a cherished memory of my childhood when a young boy could imagine incredible aliens from other planets coming here to help us as we first landed on the moon,” he said. “Developing a new storyline that introduces the OSM to a whole new audience at a time when, maybe more than ever, we need to explore what’s out there in order to help us down here, was a wonderful opportunity.”
