COMIC CONNECT COMMENCE SALE OF WORLD’S RAREST COMIC BOOK & NFT

The world’s rarest comic – Hash Rush – signed by its creator and trailblazer of the entertainment industry, Neal Adams has gone under the hammer by ComicConnect - the world's premier online auctioneer of vintage comic books, original comic art and pop culture memorabilia. 

Aptly named the “Legend” in honour of its mastermind and author, the unique comic book will be sold alongside a digital one-of-one NFT version, making it the first ever dual auction of a physical and NFT comic book.

If that wasn’t enough to whet the appetite, 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 this a truly once-in-a-lifetime prize.

The dinner experience will give the biggest entertainment fan the chance to quiz the former Marvel and DC Comics icon on his latest work – his first original comic in over two years – as well as find out more about Adams’ prestigious career that has included works on Batman, Superman, X-Men and many more.

Speculation is growing as to the value of the trio, with industry experts foreseeing the items fetching a substantial figure. Former Marvel Editor-in-Chief, Jim Shooter has called the items “priceless”, whilst Charles Rozanski, President of Mile High Comics Inc., one of the leading comic book retailers in America for the past 50 years said: “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. Given that there is no track record for such a limited release, I can only speculate that this combination of rarities will bring well into five figures at auction, and may well enter the rarefied world of six figures.

“Sad to say, this may be the only opportunity remaining for devoted fans to own such truly unique collectibles created through the genius of Neal Adams, so the sky truly is the only limit. Suffice to say, I shall watch the outcome of this particular auction with avid interest.”
