A comic book collection featuring THE SHIBOSHIS might be on the horizon for the Shiba Inu community.
THE SHIBOSHIS non-fungible token (NFT) collection launched in October 2021, featuring 10,000 unique NFTs. It represents the Shiba Inu ecosystem’s first venture into Web3 and the metaverse.
In a new effort to create utility for holders, Shiba Inu developers have teased the launch of a comic book featuring these pixelated doggy jpegs. Developers did this via a tweet yesterday on the collection’s newly created Twitter page.
but a sudden explosion at sea captures their attention. The Shibas are drawn by a beam of light from the depths and dive in, leaving the Shadowcats stranded on land. What lies beneath the surface? Only the #ShibArmy know… pic.twitter.com/Yvcn8KulCk

Notably, in recent weeks, Shiba Inu lead developer Shytoshi Kusama had teased that he had a surprise coming for THE SHIBOSHIS holders. “Well…that’s interesting,” the developer tweeted yesterday, reacting to the comic book teaser.

Unsurprisingly, the development has sparked renewed excitement about the project, as several users took to the Shibarium Technology Discord to show off their digital collectibles.
This excitement also appears to have affected the floor price of NFTs in the collection. The floor price for a SHIBOSHI is 0.3748 ETH (approximately $715.58 at the time of writing). It is up 9.9% in the last 24 hours per CoinGecko data. It represents the lowest acceptable bid to purchase one of the NFTs.
Meanwhile, the latest teaser may have unwittingly affected another project, Shadow Cats, advertised as the sworn enemy of the Shiba Inu ecosystem. The project was mentioned in the teaser, and now the ERC20 token is up over 89% in the last 24 hours.
Earlier this year, developers partnered with The Bugatti Group to launch a special NFT collection for original THE SHIBOSHIS holders alone. As reported, the NFTs gave holders rights to physical items designed by the luxury luggage brand.
Furthermore, the NFTs would also play a key role in the blockchain version of the ecosystem’s card collection game – Shiba Eternity. As reported, holders could lease their NFTs to players for a share of rewards. The blockchain version of the game is billed to launch on Shibarium, the ecosystem’s Layer 1 Ethereum solution.
