DC adds grading and rarity to NFT comics released weekly via DC Collectible Comics

DC Collectible Comics creates rarity and grading for NFT comics you purchase, read, and resell.

Press Release

DC Comics has announced a new digital expansion of their NFT offerings called DC Collectibles Comics (DC3). The new initiative will allow fans to buy NFT comics released weekly. These NFTs can also be purchased at different grades and with rarity variants. Those NFTs can be sold and resold via the DC nft.dcuniverse.com. Superman #1 will be the first DC Collectible Comic sold on the blockchain on October 27th for $9.99.

Collectors can get these collectibles in two categories, Legacy and Modern. Legacy comics include releases of classic comic issues that may have been out of print for years. Modern comics will highlight a selection of recent releases from DC’s extensive line-up of comics.

This new expansion is added to DC Comics’ collaboration with Palm NFT, who claims the NFTs are “environmentally sustainable and energy efficient.” They also claim they are better for the environment than conventional NFTs. That said, NFTs traditionally require an enormous amount of electricity and resources.

“We want to take the physical, real world experience of collecting comics that so many of our readers have loved over the years and expand that into a new digital community,” said DC Senior Vice President and General Manager Anne DePies. “We want to build that community aspect that everyone has been so proud to be a part of, in our digital ecosystem to make comic collecting more available and accessible than ever before.”

Each of the DC Collectible Comics are full comics that can be read on nft.dcuniverse.com once they are in a fan’s collection. Upcoming DC3 releases include Black Adam #1 by Christopher Priest & Rafa Sandoval, among others. Pricing, quantity and rarity for each DC3 drop may vary.

Matt Mason, Chief Content Officer of Palm NFT Studio, added, “We’re beyond excited to be working with DC to bring this new collection to the platform where fans will now have the opportunity to experience these incredible comics in a newly interactive and engaging way.”

BURBANK, CA. (Oct. 25, 2022) – Today, DC announced the next step in its digital expansion, DC Collectible Comics (DC3). The weekly drops, which can be bought and sold (subject to terms and conditions) on the fan marketplace at nft.dcuniverse.com, will feature rare variant covers and grading that physical comic book collectors have enjoyed over the years. Superman #1 will be the first DC Collectible Comic sold on the blockchain on October 27 for $9.99.

DC Collectible Comics will be released from two categories, Legacy and Modern. Legacy comics include releases of classic comic issues that may have been out of print for years while Modern comics will highlight a selection of recent releases from DC’s extensive line-up of comics.

“We want to take the physical, real world experience of collecting comics that so many of our readers have loved over the years and expand that into a new digital community,” said DC Senior Vice President and General Manager Anne DePies. “We want to build that community aspect that everyone has been so proud to be a part of, in our digital ecosystem to make comic collecting more available and accessible than ever before.”

One of the most highly prized comic books in all of collecting is Superman #1 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. DC Collectible Comics’ first drop will give fans the opportunity to digitally collect one of the most sought after comics and will be limited to 3,000 minted editions.

Batman: The Legacy Cowl #1, one of the newest DC comics created with the help of the DC Bat Cowl community, will be released today exclusively to Bat Cowl NFT holders. Batman: The Legacy Cowl #1 is the STORY OF THE COWLS! Over the years, Batman has designed various ‘specialist’ cowls (and other Bat-kit) for specific tasks. He keeps them all secure in the Batcave but one went missing. For the last several months, Bat Cowl holders helped shape the hows, whats, and whys of the comic through a series of votes, to help shape the story of Batman’s newest mystery.
