Comic book grading and slabbing company CGC is announcing a number of Private Signings events at an Diego Comic-Con – and the prices to match. But for those who spent all their money on the show, travel, hotels and trying to get all the Skottie Young pins, they will also include free comic book grading evaluations at the show. Isn't that nice of them? It's also worth pointing out that Bleeding Cool is sponsored by CGC, but this article was written independently of them.
So, they will have two booths.
Booth #901 is where customers can turn in their books for private signings, Express Drop-Off submissions, Signature Series submissions and those free book evaluations we mentioned. More of that later.
Booth #4315 is the designated area to grab a signature witness for Signature Series signing, witnessing and slabbing with Frank Miller, Robert Kirkman, Jim Lee, J. Scott Campbell, Tyler Kirkham, Ryan Ottley, Anna Zhuo and more.
These are the rules for Private signings: Books MUST be in window bags with boards. Your NAME and ACCOUNT NUMBER must be written on the back of the boards. You must have cash for artist fees. Go to CGC booth #901 for paperwork.
