Prior to each show where CGC will be grading on-site, we will post our Online Show Submission Form on our Events Page. *PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT CGC WILL BE GRADING ONLY MODERN SUBMISSIONS ON-SITE AT WIZARD WORLD CHICAGO. CGC will also be accepting submissions for all tiers of service to be shipped back to our facility in Sarasota for grading. These submissions should not be listed on the Online Show Submission Form. In addition, Wizard World Chicago will have a wide assortment of comic creators available to sign your comics. Stop by the CGC booth for details about our Signature Series program and to secure a witness for any signings you may attend. (*Please note that Signature Series requests cannot be guaranteed for on-site grading, as the artist may not be available until the end of the show.) You can also make plans in advance through our Signature Room on our Chat Boards. Check back on the CGC Web site for updates, announcements, and the link to the form (to be posted later this month)!
