The most expensive comic NFT in history?

The amount places the comic book NFT as the most expensive artwork ever sold by Frank Miller. The most valuable piece of his art is the cover he made for The Dark Knight Returns by DC Comic, which is currently valued at $ 1.3 million, although it is not for sale.

According to data from the comic hall of fame, Heritage Auctions, the collectible I Love You, Nancy Callahan would rank as the third most expensive comic book artwork sold at auction , so it may be the first in NFT format.

The creator of the comic is also releasing a series of NFTs, all from Sin City , which have been going on sale progressively. Among these pieces is Marv, another of the comic book characters, who was tokenized as a 3D glass sculpture and is autographed by Miller himself.

All digital collectibles were created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sin City . The graphic novel debuted on the pages of Dark Horse Comics in 1991 and did so with The Hard Goodbye . The story begins with ex-con Marv spending the night with a woman named Goldie, who ends up dead, setting Marv on the hunt for his killer.

Comic book characters are often popular as NFT, as made clear last year by the Argentine José Delbo, one of the DC and Marvel cartoonists, who exhibited his works in the gallery of the decentralized virtual universe Decentraland. As reported by CriptoNoticias at that time, the community turned to appreciate and buy the artist’s tokenized pieces.

There is currently a frantic pace of development in the ecosystem of NFT, where digital collectible cards like CryptoPunks and Bored Apes are getting millions of dollars from the interest the world is depositing on them.
