Bill Jemas Registers Trademarks for Upstart, Upshot and Sandbox

Bleeding Cool was the first to tell you about the existence of ex-Marvel publisher Bill Jemas‘ new comics-and-other-media publisher Artists, Writers & Artisans. based in New York with Axel Alonso as their editor-in-chief.

Bleeding Cool previously reported on the publisher registering trademarks for the following:

  • Color
  • Angels
  • Animatronically Correct
  • Full House
  • Eyepop

Well, they had to abandon trademarks for Color and Angels, due to conflicts with Kolor from GoPro and Angels Online from IGG Singapore.

Well, it looks like they are adding more to that number. With trademarks being registered for;

  • Upstart
  • Upshot
  • Sandbox

for the following categories;

Entertainment services namely, publishing comic books and graphic novels; publishing text and graphic works on-line featuring comic books, novelizations, scripts and audiovisual materials; and, providing a web site featuring multimedia materials for entertainment purposes

Now UPSHOT is the name the publisher has given for their creator-owned titles, Upshot Studios, but as for the rest? We wait to see.

We may find out just what Artists, Writers & Artisans have planned for these trademarks to come. New York Comic-Con maybe? So they don’t have to travel far?
