Captain Bitcoin Finance Comics – Financial Freedom Like Never Before

BY April 27, 2022

Captain Bitcoin is the first series of collections launched by One Blue Land. That is an independent publishing house pioneer in the publication of the so-called “financial comics”. This initiative brings a very novel proposal, which associates the concepts of the world of cryptocurrencies with comic characters. It is a way for readers to be introduced to this complex industry at the hand of charismatic and close characters. In the stories, the protagonists live everyday situations that end up deriving plot twists that enter fully into the crypto world. 

Spinning the plots appeals to both the experienced reader in the cryptocurrency industry and those who are not, offering an easy but not simple vision. In this way, Captain Bitcoin Finance Comics fulfills a double function, trapping the reader in the character’s story and, at the same time, doing didactic work thanks to all the concepts that are exposed. 

This article will talk about One Blue Land, the independent publishing house that launched this initiative. We will also review its star comic, Captain Bitcoin #1, telling the comic’s synopsis and how readers can obtain it. And finally, we will do a brief review of the rest of the works this publisher has released.

Captain Bitcoin #1 Plot Summary

Captain Bitcoin began hundreds of years ago by introducing us to a villain called the Timestealer. The Timestealer does just what his name suggests. He takes years off of people’s lives to give himself sustenance. As we move forward to modern times, the amount of sustenance the Timestealer gets for each year stolen has dramatically diminished. What used to provide him with six months of sustenance now provides him with six minutes.

The main protagonist of the story is a man named Cal. Cal is a customer representative for an insurance company. It’s not the job he wants, but it’s the one he needs to pay the debts accumulated over the years. We watch as the Timestealer hits Cal.

He has lost over a year in the blink of an eye and is no closer to doing what he wants. Cal realizes a problem and goes on an impromptu camping trip to sort things out. During the camping trip, Cal meets a stranger in a cape. The stranger explains to Cal that time is money.

Captain Bitcoin’s Plot Twist

If Cal can find a way to make his money work for him, he will have more of both. Cal takes the stranger’s advice to heart. Over time, his debt is destroyed, and savings begin to flourish. When he reaches a point where he feels secure, Cal goes to his boss and tender his resignation. It is then that the boss reveals to be the Timestealer, and the ultimate battle begins.

Satoshi intervenes during the battle to save our protagonist from the evil villain, who escapes through the window upon sensing the threat. After getting rid of the villain, Satoshi shows the intention to act as a mentor for Cal. However, when he is about to hand him the book with all the secrets, he throws it out the window, and Cal jumps out to grab it. The final surprise is that a suit of armor emerges from Cal’s body, allowing him to fly and finally become Captain Bitcoin.

Key Concepts Captain Bitcoin Finance Comics Teaches Us

Captain Bitcoin is a pioneer project in teaching complex economic concepts through the pages of a comic book. As presented in this comic, we may have already seen certain financial concepts in some stories, but never like this before. Getting out of the cycle of debt and interest is one of the concepts that Captain Bitcoin teaches us. Having a plan and putting it into action is vital to stop the Timestealer. 

Timestealer (Image: One Blue Land)

The Timestealer is the villain of the comic. This character represents 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM salaried work in an office for 20 or 30 years. As the name implies, this way of life leaves very little free time available. Characters who the villain attacks lose hours of life, suffering premature aging. This trap is the same that happens to many people who spend most of their lives working, and don’t realize time has already passed. The book explains it very well with this allegory. 

Details From the Cover and Pages

In terms of form, the cover is excellent. In it, we see our protagonist, already transformed into a hero, wearing shiny golden armor. The outfit reminds us of Bitcoin’s colors, and we see him fighting the Timestealer. The villain reminds us somewhat of Doctor Strange and is a good reference as the sorcerer supreme also has the power to manipulate time. 

The inside pages are very well narrated. At times Cal’s character is reminiscent of Neo in the first installment of The Matrix. We see an ordinary man, alienated by his job, trying to get ahead in life. He is someone we can identify with, just as we did with Thomas Anderson in the Wachowski sisters’ film.

In the printed version, the quality of the materials has nothing to envy of the “big two.” Captain Bitcoin is available at www.oneblueland.com for $21 in its limited edition for those who love physical copies.

However, if you don’t have a lot of resources, or if $21 seems expensive, the good people at One Blue Land offer a free digital version to read through their website. Here you can find, in addition to Captain Bitcoin, the stories of Tsukiko & Rai, Parabolic, Timestealer, Moon Boy and many others. 

As we can see, One Blue Land cares about our finances, offering a lot of free content, they even have a video version of the comic book, as well as an animated manga version

All you have to do is go to the website, search for comics, click on any title under the videos, and that’s it!

Tsukiko (“Moon”) and Rai (“Lightning”) are two teenage twins who are fond of day trading. Their hobby becomes serious when they start making huge amounts of money. However, they begin to use these skills in the wrong way. Soon after, Satoshi appears to show them the way forward.

Currently, the publisher is preparing its third issue, which will come out in the summer of 2022. This new title is Sir Whale, the continuation of the Satoshi series. There will be a total of 8 issues for this series.
