VeVe CEO and co-founder David Yu said it’s “very exciting” to see their collab with Marvel come to fruition.” Yu added that they “cannot wait to offer fans unique ways to collect their favorite Marvel Super Heroes and memorabilia in digital form.”
The Spider-Man NFT drop is just the first of many digital statues, digital comic books, and other digital collectibles in VeVe’s Marvel Month initiative. Among the other Marvel digital collectibles dropping this August are Marvel Comics #1 and Marvel Mightys.
The first Marvel comic book released in 1939, Marvel Comics #1 will be available in five variants, with each version having a different cover and a different level of rarity. Priced at $6.99, the digital comic book will be offered in a blind box format.
Marvel Mightys, meanwhile, is an exclusive line of Super-D figures which will debut with a series of Captain America figures featuring Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, John F. Walker, and the Red Skull. Each digital figure will have a different level of rarity and will also be sold in a blind box format for $13.
