Webble Cospaint Launches Trading Card Kickstarter


Everything is going digital. Music, books, movies, comics, games. Very few things physical are keeping it real these days, but trading cards are one of the exceptions. Collectible card games still maintain some rage with the kids, as do cosplayers at conventions. So why not combine the two? Webble Cospaint, the first trading card series featuring the biggest names in cosplay, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their second series of cospaint trading cards exclusively featuring Aspen Comics characters, including Michael Turner creations Aspen Matthews, Kiani, Grace of the Rhatumi, Executive Assistant Iris and more.

Webble Cospaint is the first trading card series that combines the artistic talents of body painters, special effect artists and cosplayers with the characters and style of comic book artists and character creators from various fictional universes. These cosplay artists build elaborate costumes and attend events all over the world. This work has recently gained traction in mainstream media, as seen in shows like Syfy's Heroes of Cosplay. Webble wants to showcase their work while adding to the community by adding a creative twist. The first series of Cospaint cards debuted at New York Comic-Con 2013. Consisting of 21 costumed cosplayers, one checklist and 5 Cospaint cards, Webble was able to print a limited release of Series 1.

Now Webble has partnered with Aspen Comics for their second series of trading cards, featuring popular cosplayers such as Leaanna Vamp, Ani-Mia, Jenifer Ann, Rosanna Rocha, Heather 1337 and more. Webble Cospaint has completed their Series 2 photo shoot and has fantastic images of the cosplayers ready to be made into trading cards. Webble hopes to make these Aspen cards (and other, yet-to-be-revealed pieces!) available to the public and properly showcase the work of their great artists.
