Marvel and Veve say that the Spider-Man series of statues is just the beginning, as NFTs like a unique Marvel Comics Issue #1 from 1939 will be released.
“Each version will have a different cover and a different level of rarity and offered in a ‘blind box’ format for $6.99,” the announcement details. An exclusive line of “Super-D figures” from Marvel will be revealed on the Veve application as well. “Each digital figure will have a different level of rarity and will also be sold in a blind box format for $13.00,” Marvel says.
“Spider-Man is one of the most legendary Super Heroes in the Marvel Universe, so there was no better way to kick off our global digital collectibles experience with Veve,” Dan Buckley, the president of Marvel Entertainment remarked in a statement. “We can’t wait to bring Marvel fans and collectors even more exciting drops throughout August and beyond.”
Marvel’s arch-rival DC Comics has also published non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles. In March, Veve Collectibles announced a non-fungible token (NFT) lineup of DC Comics’ Batman collectibles. Since then DC Comics, in collaboration with Veve, has launched a slew of NFT collectibles that feature the firm’s most popular comic book characters.
