CGC Announces Special Drop-off Signing with J. Scott Campbell at San Diego Comic-Con!

Posted on 7/12/2023

J. Scott Campbell is joining CGC at SDCC for a special signing event!

CGC is excited to announce that we will be hosting a signing with J. Scott Campbell at SDCC 2023. All submissions must be dropped off at the CGC Booth #901 or the Signature Series Booth #4315 at the convention by the end of the day on Saturday, July 22. 

In addition to his iconic work for Marvel and DC, he co-founded the Cliffhanger imprint as part of WildStorm Productions and has worked side-by-side with Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead and Oblivion Song), Todd McFarlane (Spawn and Spawn’s Universe), and other acclaimed creators. His artwork has most recently been seen on a series of Marvel variant covers celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the universe created by Stan Lee, Mary Jane and Black Cat retail variants, Batman Spawn #1 Special, Harley Quinn's 30th Anniversary Special, and WildStorm's 30th Anniversary Special featuring Fairchild.

IMPORTANT: J. Scott will not be signing homage or parody covers of his work. Such submissions will be returned ungraded with a refund of the signing and grading fees.

For this event, ALL CGC members, including free CGC members, must submit books in-person at the CGC booth #901 or the Signature Series Booth #4315 at SDCC 2023 by the end of the day on Saturday, July 22. Please do not mail in any collectibles for this signing. 

The CGC In-House Private Signing fee for J. Scott Campbell is $100 per item and includes:

  • J. Scott Campbell’s signature ($40)
  • Estimated turnaround time of six weeks for CGC grading
  • Estimated turnaround time of eight weeks for CGC grading and CGC pressing (an additional $20 fee applies for CGC pressing)
  • Encapsulation with the iconic yellow CGC Signature Series label

After J. Scott signs the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an estimated turnaround time of six weeks. If CGC pressing is also requested, the turnaround time is estimated at eight weeks. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners.

***Marker color requests are welcome, but not guaranteed. Marker color choice and signature placement is at the final discretion of the signer.
