VeVe, a mobile-first digital collectibles platform, has announced a new partnership with Edgar Rice Burroughs, the company that manages the worldwide rights to the character Tarzan, to bring the “Tarzan of the Apes” comic books to the NFT platform. 

Collectors will be able to purchase Tarzan comic books through the VeVe app, available to download on the App Store and Google Play. 

“Tarzan has proven to be a timeless character, maintaining his perennial qualities of strength, courage, protector of wildlife and the environment and defender of those in need, even as he adapts to the changing world,” says Jim Sullos, president, Edgar Rice Burroughs. “Every generation has its Tarzan, and its own way of experiencing the ape-man’s adventures, and this generation is no different. We are extremely proud and excited to partner with VeVe to bring Tarzan into the new frontier of digital collectibles, where we are certain the Lord of the Jungle will once again triumph.”

“Tarzan is one of pop culture’s most enduring characters and we’re thrilled to bring him and this iconic comic series into the digital world,” says David Yu, co-founder, VeVe. “We believe Veve is a wonderful way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this comic as well as Tarzan’s and Joe Kubert’s ongoing legacy for fans to cherish forever.” 

Through the VeVe platform, fans can showcase their digital collections in the app’s virtual showrooms as 3D dioramas, as well as virtually visit, comment on and like showrooms from other collectors. VeVe also offers an augmented reality (AR) photo mode that allows collectors to interact with every digital collectible in 3D, as well as share their collectibles through VeVe’s in-app social feed or on external social platforms. In addition, VeVe uses Ethereum’s layer 2 scaling protocol, Immutable X, providing a 99.9% reduction in environmental footprint.
