CGC is thrilled to announce that comic book artist Clayton Crain will once again be joining us for another In-House Private Signing at our headquarters! Crain is best known for his incredible digital painted work on Marvel Comics books such as Spider-Man, Carnage, Ghost Rider, and Venom. He has also worked on the Valiant Comics series, Rai, as well as with comic legend Todd McFarlane on several DC Comics stories. In addition to signing, Crain will also be offering his iconic Infinity Signature and a limited number of Remarques for purchase. Get the full details on all the submission options below.

Crain’s captivating acrylic and digital covers have fans excited for every new piece he creates. His notable works stretch far and wide, from his earlier art in Image Comics’ Curse of the Spawn to the not-yet-published Marvel series, Ant-Man. Crain is also admired for his Infinity Signature, which has quickly become a fan favorite. Some call it the “Crain-bow” due to the multiple colors Crain uses to create this one-of-a-kind signature.

“CGC has the pleasure of hosting so many creative minds!" exclaimed Brittany McManus, CGC’s Signature Series Director. “We are so excited to continue connecting artists and writers with comic fans, and we're so happy to have Crain join us again! Plus, this time he is offering Remarques and his super-popular Infinity Signature. It’s going to be another incredible signing with Mr. Crain!"

Any preference on his signature of Clayton Crain?  Does he have a preference on where he signs and the amount of room he likes. 😊

Lol I don't know that anyone has specified room for sig, yet if there wasnt room, I'm sure it would be rectified by being taken out of the window bags lol

But I feel you, same with Claremont, long name equals long sig

I’ll probably just give him the whole cover.  Hoping the infinity signature is cool. 🤞

I like the infinity sig for sure, I don't own one, but know those that do. I do know that when he takes the time to do that sig, he makes it nice looking.

According to twitter the Miller/Janson signing occurred this weekend. So, based on the CGC time-frame of 3 weeks for grading and 6 weeks for pressing and grading the expected turnaround dates are May 3rd and May 24th. Let's see how close they are (mine are in for pressing and grading).

My Percy & Kubert just shipped back. It's a lower grade than I expected, but not shocked. Notes say signed on 2/17 & 2/25. Using 3/1 as the first day of "grading", it is 6 weeks to the day turnaround time.

For the Miller signing, good to know.  Mine still shows Received though I do have pressing so will be a little longer for me.

On different topic, for the James Tynion signing, received submission acknowledgement but when I checked my submission status, it shows as Scheduled for Grading.  It should be Received.  Have a call into CGC about this and to correct. Ha this happened to anyone in the past?

Hey there, comic fans! We know many of you have been requesting more information on a number of private signings, so we thought it was a good idea to get some more detailed information out to you. Here is a list of signing updates! • Chris Evans Signing - All books have been signed. • Chris Claremont Signing - All previously unsigned books have been signed. • Joe Rubinstein - All previously unsigned books have been signed. • Frank Miller and Klaus Janson - All books have been signed and Remarques/Sketches completed. • Ben Bishop - All previously unsigned books have been signed. • Kevin Eastman Signing - All previously unsigned books have been signed. • Geoff Johns, David Finch, Brad Anderson, Peter Tomasi, Doug Mahnke, and Jason Fabok Signing - Due to international travel setbacks this signing was pushed out later than expected. However, we are happy to report that we have received all of Jason Fabok's signed books back from Canada and we will be getting David Finch and Brad Anderson books signed by mid-May. If you selected a Fabok ONLY signature, those books have already been sent through for grading. • We apologize for the delays, but please know we are working around the clock to make sure every customer gets what they have requested. Lastly, we are so grateful for your continued support and appreciate your patience as we navigate through the tremendous growth we have seen in the comic collecting community. Even without Comic Cons (which we dearly miss!), you have all made this an exciting time for all of us at CGC Comics! Comic on! #cgccomics #cgc #comiconfriends #privatesignings #recap #signatureseries #comicbooks #igcomicfamily #igcomicbookfamily #comics #artists #writers #comicsrock #welovecomics #gradedcomics #slabbedcomics #igcomics
