“Marvel has been working with VeVe to figure out how to make the Marvel digital collecting experience as unique as the physical experience, and we are thrilled to finally be able to share our vision with our fans,” said Daniel Fink, Vice President of Business Development and Strategy at Marvel Entertainment. “We plan to push the frontiers of what Marvel fandom can be through VeVe’s platform, starting with personal and interactive digital artifacts that, thanks to NFTs, fans can really collect, share, and enjoy in ways they have never been able to before.”

Each digital comic book will have FIVE versions of rarity:

#1 MARVEL COMICS
MARVEL COMICS #1 will be the first Marvel digital comic released as an NFT, as it was the first comic published by Marvel (then known as Timely) in 1939. The original, android Human Torch, and Namor the Sub-Mariner make their initial appearances in this issue.
#85 JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY
Loki, Heimdall, and Asgard make their debut appearances in JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #85.
#1 FANTASTIC FOUR
The first appearance of the Fantastic Four is featured in FANTASTIC FOUR by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, which kicks off the Marvel Age of comics, which revolutionized narrative and continues to have a significant influence on modern culture.
The first three Marvel NFT digital collectibles series – this initial batch of classic Marvel comic books, Captain America Marvel Mighty Figures, and Spider-Man Digital Statues — are part of a bigger push on the VeVe App to commemorate Marvel Month. Other Marvel digital items, such as digital sculptures, digital comic books, and other dioramas, will be released soon.
