José Delbo, a former comic book artist who was employed by DC Comics, has recently earned close to $2 million following the successful auctioning of Wonder Woman NFTs. Having worked on illustrations and designs since the 1970s, José was able to build up quite the clientele for himself over the years, which made it much easier for him to find people willing to make the purchase. At the time of this writing, he also has plans to sell his work inspired by the likes of Transformers, Batman and some other work of his in the near future.
NFTs continue to be auctioned off in the wake of International Women’s Day 2021
A little over 900 NFTs had been auctioned off in total, and nearly every one of these included either a picture or an animated gif of Wonder Woman. One cannot help but wonder the timing of these sales, too, as we are just one day removed from International Women’s Day 2021, and the fact that José was able to sell off so many of his Wonder Woman NFTs, which depicted themes relating to women’s empowerment may very well not be coincidental after all.
The tokens themselves were two of a kind and also included up to 4 limited editions as well. It should also be mentioned that while NFTs in the case of the four limited editions can be minted, unlimited amounts of the sort may only be carried out if the auction is still happening. Lastly, the auction also included a singular limited edition for which only ten copies were allowed to be sold at any given time.
“Heroines – Stand Out” and “Heroines – Shine Bright” earn major profits
Heroines – Stand Out managed to sell ten copies overall, with two being reserved for artists and seven being given away in a raffle competition, and most notably the last one being sold for 15 ETH, which roughly translated to about $23,000. Moreover, Heroines – Shine Bright was the highest-selling limited edition, and profits amounted to nearly $450,000 following the auctioning of just over 150 copies. All proceeds also went to the Girls Who Code organization in an effort to reduce the gender gap prevalent within the tech industry.
