WarnerMedia’s DC on Wednesday announced that it will give away free comic-book-inspired NFTs to those who register for DC FanDome, the company’s global virtual fan event taking place on October 16.

The NFTs, which will be hand-selected by DC publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee, will depict fan-favorite superheroes including Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn. Additionally, the NFTs will include comic book covers in three levels of rarity — for example, fans of Wonder Woman can collect a common (1987’s Wonder Woman No. 1 by George Perez), rare (2021’s Nubia and the Amazons No. 1 by Alitha Martinez), and/or a legendary (Yara Flor on 2021’s Future State: Wonder Woman No. 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,” said DC’s Lee in a statement. “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.”

Fans can begin to register for FanDome on October 5, with the ability to unlock a second free NFT by sharing on social media. Each NFT is crafted in partnership with Palm NFT Studios, which claims its blockchain-backed assets are 99% more energy-efficient compared to those using proof-of-work systems.

“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,” said Palm Co-Founder Dan Heyman. “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.”

Register for the event on DC FanDome’s website beginning October 5.

Earlier this week, HBO Max ordered a three-part documentary series on DC Comics.
