Marvel Comics and VeVe continue to celebrate “Marvel Month” with the company’s first NFT comic books.
Marvel Month is in full swing and the legendary comic book company is giving us another treat on the VeVe platform. This weekend, Marvel is selling the first ever digital comic book collection in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Up until now, two Marvel sales have gone down on VeVe, the Spider-Man digital statue collection debuted the series on VeVe while Captain America’s collection was released last week. The Spidey collection sold out in less than 24-hours while the follow-up Captain America set sold out in less than 24 minutes.
The NFT comic sale on VeVe will run until Sunday and feature three different readable classics from Marvel’s archives.
Marvel’s NFT comics
Much like the previous NFT collections from Marvel, the comics come in one of five rarity levels, from common to secret rare. The first comic for sale is appropriately Marvel Comics #1. Back in 1939 when the company was named Timely, it released a comic that featured the debut of an android version of the Human Torch and Namor the Sub-Mariner.
Second is Journey Into Mystery #85, a Thor comic that marked the first appearance of Loki, Heimdall and capital city Asgard.
Finally, the third comic to be released is the iconic Fantastic Four #1 written by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. It was the debut of the new legendary quartet of heroes and cemented Marvel on the Mount Rushmore of comic book companies.
60,000 editions of the first and third NFTs, while the Journey into Mystery release has only 50,000. This makes the Loki debut a bit more exclusive than the others, with 10,000 less versions released.
The common, or classic cover, will have 40,000 copies minted while the secret rare ‘True Believer Variant’ will have just 500 versions in the pool. Despite this, all comics are priced at $6.99 and rarities are randomized at the time of sale, allowing for anyone to snag a very rare and valuable NFT from the collection.
