CGC is excited to host comic industry super-duo Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner for an In-House Private Signing! Co-founders of PAPERFILMS, Palmiotti and Conner are currently working on the extremely well-received Harley Quinn relaunch and other Harley Quinn-related titles for DC Comics. Some of Palmiotti and Conner’s other popular titles include Daredevil and Punisher from Marvel Knights, X-O Zero, Johah Hex, Ninjak, Powergirl, Silk Spectre, Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman.
“I have been working with CGC for years, and I’m very excited to spend a day at their headquarters, signing books and interacting with all of the people who support us,” said Palmiotti. “I can’t wait to see what’s submitted, from our newer works to the classics that got us where we are today.”
Conner added, “While it looks like the conventions are going to be a bust this year, this CGC In-House Private Signing means you can still get signed comics! It won’t be the same as seeing all of your beautiful faces in person, but you can still fill out some of your collection.”
For Palmiotti and Conner’s CGC In-House Private Signing, both free and paid CGC members can submit collectibles directly to CGC headquarters in Florida. CGC will coordinate with Palmiotti and Conner for the collectibles to be signed in mid-July.
If the CGC In-House Private Signing needs to be rescheduled due to travel restrictions or other reasons, CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled.
Books can be submitted for only Jimmy Palmiotti’s signature or for only Amanda Conner’s signature, or books can be submitted for both signatures! After Palmiotti and Conner sign 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 social media channels for any signing and scheduling updates.
