Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler is set to release a graphic novel titled The Antibody as a multi-part NFT collection.

The digital book tells the story of a mutated antibody that goes on to wreak havoc on humanity, and each chapter will be made available as an animated NFT. Each episode will feature original music composed by Butler, and artwork created by Kolin Humphries, aka KOL.

“I’m really excited by the concept of NFTs and look forward to releasing my first,” Butler says. “It’s great to have a new medium in which to share art, music, stories.”

The Antibody‘s first chapter goes on sale this Friday, March 25, at noon ET via the NFT marketplace YellowHeart.

Part of the proceeds raised by the sale of the NFTs will be donated to organizations aiding humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine, including Save the Children and UNICEF.

Butler isn’t the first Black Sabbath alum with an NFT series. Singer Ozzy Osbourne previously released a collection called CryptoBatz that features digital mutant bats, and was inspired by the infamous incident where he bit the head off a real bat during a concert.

Meanwhile, Geezer recently lent his talents to a new song by symphonic metal band Apocalyptica titled “I’ll Get Through It” that was released last week.
