DC, in partnership with Palm NFT Studio, officially steps into the world of blockchain technology with its first collection of NFTs on Oct. 5.
Using Palm’s technology, the NFTs highlight DC’s history, breadth of characters and diversity of storytelling. Hand-selected by Jim Lee, publisher, chief creative officer, DC, as a thank you to its fans and an invitation to attend DC FanDome on Oct. 16, registrants will be able to collect a free NFT by enrolling for this year’s global virtual event with the ability to unlock a second, free NFT by sharing on social media.
Featuring Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn, the premiere drop offers fans the opportunity to collect three covers for each character in three levels of rarity. For example, fans of the Princess of Themyscira a.k.a. Wonder Woman can collect a Common (1987’s “Wonder Woman” No. 1 by George Peréz), Rare (2021’s “Nubia and the Amazons #1” by Alitha Martinez), and/or Legendary (Yara Flor on 2021’s “Future State: Wonder Woman #1” by Jenny Frison) cover.
“We spent a lot of time on how to translate and adapt these classic covers into a 21st century format such as NFTs,” says Lee. “This drop pays homage to our 87-year history while visualizing a future in which NFTs play a foundational role in novel ways of interacting with DC content and unlocking new experiences.”
DC Fandome will be the first large-scale virtual event with registration powered by NFTs.
“It’s immensely rewarding to work with a partner like DC who understands that blockchain is more than a technology, it’s a sustainable storytelling tool that can reshape the relationship between creators and fans,” says Dan Heyman, co-founder, Palm. “What does it mean to be a fan? What does it mean to be a collector? These are age-old questions that we get to watch creators like DC answer in brand new ways every day.”
