In our ever-expanding product range, we are excited to bring digital comics to the VeVe platform. Like our digital collectibles, digital comics are limited edition NFTs and, in most cases, come in various levels of rarity, with the rarer types having lower edition numbers, as you would expect.
One great advantage of digital comics over physical versions is that they will stay in pristine condition, no matter how many times you read them. So no need to worry about damaged spines or dog-eared corners, and no need for more bookshelves!
In the world of physical comics, some are released with different cover variants. The comic interior pages are the same, however, the cover is different from the standard-issue cover, adding to the excitement of a new release, and making those rare covers all the more sought after.
VeVe digital comics will be offered in the same way, and in most cases, VeVe digital comics will be released with up to five cover variants, each of which is associated with a different rarity (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Ultra Rare, and Secret Rare).
Before purchasing a digital comic, you can review the odds of getting a specific cover variant (e.g. 1 in 3.3), as well as the number of editions remaining. These details can be seen when viewing a digital comic in the Store. Once a digital comic has been purchased, it will appear in your Collection.
When purchasing a VeVe digital comic, you won’t know which cover variant you will get until after purchase, much like VeVe Blind Boxes. The cover variant and rarity will be displayed on the Purchase Success screen. In the example below, the purchaser has secured a Rare cover variant:
During high traffic periods, such as a drop, the comic rarity will be known to you only after delivery to your collection, which may take 30–120 minutes.
With VeVe digital comics, you don’t get just the cover — you are buying the full comic, ready to read with VeVe’s built-in E-Reader, so you can read the digital comic right after it has been delivered to your Collection!
To read a digital comic, you only need to simply tap the comic cover in your collection. You can then tap on the left or right of the screen to navigate through the pages, and double-tap in the center of the screen to zoom in/out, and then drag the zoomed-in page with your finger, for an easier reading experience. If you want to zoom in further, you can pinch with two fingers.
The E-Reader will also remember the last page read, and when returning to the digital comic, will jump to the last page so you can continue from where you left off.
Like digital collectibles, VeVe digital comics can be purchased and sold in VeVe’s secondary market, either as a Buy Now price or Auction.
In the top navigation on the Market screen, you will see a new icon for Comics, under which all comics listed in the Market will be displayed. The Market > Browse icon has now been updated to Collectibles, which lists all collectibles in the Market (…obviously 😆).
We hope you enjoy this new experience of buying and reading VeVe digital comics and, as always, we look forward to your feedback!
