From Rejected to Recognized: Ximphonic Versus Scores Big with Streaming Deal and Action Figures

By: Get News
Scotlynd Xing Xin-Bedford's passion project, Ximphonic Versus: Nocturnes Romance, is a testament to perseverance. This isn't the typical rags-to-riches story.

After Xing's creation, faced an uphill battle of 30 years of work and a staggering 175 rejections from comic book publishers, Xing took matters into his own hands, launching Phantom Blade Productions and self-publishing his graphic novel series. The gamble paid off. As of May 2024, Ximphonic Versus has sold over 7,000 physical copies, without crowdfunding that is used by so many creators today. And finding a niche with local comic shops and even landing on Walmart shelves. 

Now, the series is poised for a major breakout, with an upcoming anime TV series landing on streaming platforms. And a collaboration with giants Disney+ and Hulu, to promote the IP via their streaming platforms and a detailed action figure line hitting shelves this summer.

A Dark Fantasy Epic steeped in Emotion:

The series itself is a dark fantasy epic, drawing inspiration from Lord of the Rings, Final Fantasy, Dracula and even Shakespeare's Hamlet. Xing describes it as a "tragic, dark, and beautiful opera," a world where characters grapple with love, heartbreak, evil and the burden of a "Divine Charge." The characters are overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds, set against a backdrop of a fantastical world with a tragic and beautiful operatic quality. Ximphonic Versus isn't a typical fantasy fare.

From Graphic Novel to Global Recognition:

Despite initial struggles, Xing's self-published graphic novel has garnered a loyal following and was featured by ScreenRant May of 2024. The series has even attracted praise from high-profile names in entertainment, including Netflix, HBO, and actors from shows like The Handmaid's Tale. This acclaim culminated when Ximphonic Versus won "IP of the Year'' in 2022, further solidifying its growing reputation. The project's reach extends beyond traditional entertainment. Ximphonic Versus is designed to resonate with viewers struggling with PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Additionally, Xing has partnered with ComicBooks For Kids!, donating copies to children's hospitals and troops overseas.

A Multi-Platform Experience:

The upcoming TV series, produced by Phantom Blade Productions and The Global Genesis Group, promises to translate Xing's vision to the screen. With world-renowned composers Two Steps From Hell providing the music and a trailer featuring storyboards by former Square Enix artists, the production value seems nothing short of impressive.

A Story of Resilience and Innovation:

Ximphonic Versus: Nocturnes Romance is a story of resilience and the power of believing in ones own vision.

With a captivating story, stunning visuals, and a multi-platform approach, Ximphonic Versus is poised to become a multimedia phenomenon.
