In a further demonstration of how NFT’s are gaining momentum within publishing, the world’s rarest comic – Hash Rush – will go under the hammer in the world’s first-ever dual auction of a physical and NFT comic book.

Aptly named the ‘Legend’ in honour of its creator, comic icon Neil Adams (Marvel and DC Comics), the auction will be conducted by ComicConnect – the world’s premier online auctioneer of vintage comic books, original comic art and pop culture memorabilia. 

The comic is Adams’ first original work in over two years, and the one-of-one first edition will be printed on gold aluminum. As the only one of its kind, it is hailed as the rarest comic in the world and will additionally be minted as a piece of digital art (non-fungible token/NFT).

The winning bidder will also net themselves an evening with Neal Adams in New York, courtesy of Hash Rush video game creators, Vorto Gaming; making it a once-in-a-lifetime prize.

Speculation is growing as to the value of the auction, with former Marvel Editor-in-Chief, Jim Shooter calling the items “priceless”, whilst Charles Rozanski, President of Mile High Comics Inc., says, “I have been continually amazed by the profound evolutionary changes in our collectibles genre. That is why I am particularly intrigued by the announcement that a single unique physical copy, and an accompanying unique NFT, are being offered for Neal Adams’ first original comic project in over two years.”
