Los Angeles, CA – December 3, 2021 – Apex Comics Group, a creator-owned independent comic- book publishing company, is exhibiting jointly with Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE: LQID), the Digital Innovation Partner at Los Angeles Comic Con (LACC), and Oasis Digital Studios Limited in more than 1,500 square feet of booth space (Booth #1241). With Apex Comics Group, they are proud to announce three LACC-exclusive new comic-book projects, including variant covers and merchandise:

THE R.I.G.H.T. PROJECT

At last! A superhero for anyone who sincerely loves superheroes. A teenage video-gamer joins a digital daredevil for truth, justice and a universe of hoo-ha action and angst. While working on the R.I.G.H.T. Project — an attempt to develop a new technology allowing computer constructs to assume physical mass — Doctor Dex Click stumbles upon the new champ of split-second adventure. But Mr. R.I.G.H.T. is little more than a soulless animatronic until he bonds with Jeffrey “Player One” Lopez. Since Jeffrey is a true believer, he helps transform a heartless avatar into a compassionate and relentless hero — the true hero who lives within us all! A comic book in the mode of creators Tom DeFalco & Ron Frenz’s Spider-Girl, Spider-Man, Thor, Thunderstrike and A-Next!

Writer: Tom DeFalco

Penciler: Ron Frenz

Inker: Sal Buscema

THE OUTER SPACE MEN

They have come together to keep us from falling apart! From the farthest reaches of interdimensional space come diverse and heroic aliens, representing the best of the best their planets have to offer. Together they form an intergalactic peacekeeping team designed to ensure the safety of Earth and the entire galaxy!

Writer: Fabian Nicieza

Artist: Chris Batista

Variant covers: Ariel Olivetti, Gordon Purcell, John Hebert, and Mel Birnkrant & Tamara Kiteley

PHAZER UNIVERSE

Phazer’s quest to return home brings with it his greatest enemies — and it takes a new hero, Super Liquid Avatar, to help him save the world! Action, Adventure, Dinosaurs, Aliens, Super Science, Androids, Time Travel… this one’s got it all! From the mind of award-winning writer, illustrator and executive producer Mariano Nicieza comes a sci-fi action-adventure opus for comic-book lovers everywhere!
