CGC Announces an In-House Signing Private Signing with Comic Book Legend George Perez!

CGC is thrilled to announce an CGC In-House Private Signing with comic book artist and writer George Pérez! After announcing his retirement from the comic-con circuit, Pérez has agreed to give his fans another opportunity to have their books signed and encapsulated under CGC’s Signature Series program.

“It’s been such an honor to have had a pivotal role shaping some of the greatest franchises of all time: The Avengers, The New Teen Titans, Crisis on Infinite Earths, Superman and Wonder Woman,” Pérez said. “I appreciate the support from comics fans over the years and have always enjoyed the chance to sign my works. I’m delighted to give comic book fans this opportunity.”

For this exclusive private signing event, ALL CGC members — that includes free CGC members — can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC will coordinate with Pérez to have the collectibles signed in conjunction with MEGACON Orlando, which has been rescheduled for June 4-7. MEGACON is one of the most popular events on the comic-con circuit every year, and many guests have already confirmed their attendance for the new dates.

If the CGC In-House Private Signing needs to be rescheduled due to show postponements or cancellations, travel restrictions or other reasons, CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled.

After Pérez signs the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an expedited turnaround time of only three weeks. If CCS pressing is also requested, the expedited turnaround time will be six weeks. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners.

Check CGC e-blasts and social media channels for any signing and scheduling updates.

The fee for the CGC In-House Private Signing is $75 per item and includes:

  • George Pérez’s signature
  • expedited turnaround time of three weeks for CGC grading
  • expedited turnaround time of six weeks for CGC grading and CCS pressing (an additional $20 fee applies for CCS pressing)
  • encapsulation with CGC’s iconic yellow Signature Series label.

Books need to be at CGC by Friday, May 29, 2020, to be eligible for this event.
