The NFTs on VeVe
Tarzan NFTs land on mobile-first digital collectibles platform, VeVe. This is made possible by a collaboration between VeVe and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. For clarification, this is the late author of the original Tarzan comics’ company that manages the rights to Tarzan.
In the debut collection, VeVe users can exclusively buy one of the most famous Tarzan comics. The classic edition of #207 is the first for users to see and purchase. First published 50 years ago, issue #207 marked the first time Kubert made his creative talents available to the Lord of the Jungle. He portrayed him as no one had ever done before. The first drop is today (June 3) at 8:00am PT.
“Tarzan is one of pop culture’s most enduring characters and we’re thrilled to bring him and this iconic comic book series to the digital world,” said David Yu, co-founder of VeVe. “We think Veve is a wonderful way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this comic, as well as Tarzan and Joe Kubert’s enduring legacy that fans will forever cherish.”
To clarify, Tarzan is an iconic character brought to life in 1912 by Edgar Rice Burroughs, an American author.
He is a fictional character raised in the African jungle by Mangani apes. In this case, the story builds as he is introduced to civilization only to reject it. He wants to return to the wild as a heroic adventurer. Also, the character has been portrayed in many ways and has even been the title character in Disney movies.
