CGC Announces Fifth Annual In-House Private Signing Event with Skottie Young

Posted on 6/12/2024

CGC welcomes back the wonderful Skottie Young!

CGC is excited to welcome back award winning comic book artist and writer Skottie Young for a fifth annual In-House Private Signing. Young is best known for his work with Marvel Comics and his illustrated covers for titles like Cable & Deadpool, Spider-Man, Deadpool and Iron Man. In addition to his signature, he is offering his legendary Remarques for purchase. Remarques will be limited to the first 100 submitters. See examples and pricing details below.

Young is an award-winning writer, artist, cartoonist, author, and any other fancy word that applies to making stuff up and playing pretend for a living. For over two decades he has been writing and drawing comics for Marvel (Wizard of Oz, Deadpool, Strange Academy, Rocket Raccoon, and more), Image comics (I Hate Fairyland, Bully Wars, The Me You Love in the Dark, Middlewest, TWIG and more) and just about every other publisher there is. He’s been nominated and won several Eisner and Ringo Awards as well as a Bram Stoker Award and a few others he can’t remember because his kids played with the trophies, and they no longer exist. He has spent over a year on the New York Times Best Sellers list, and it was mostly because of his creative genius and not because he adapted Baum’s classic Wizard of OZ novels or because he illustrated a children’s novel written by some writer that goes by the name Neil Gaiman. Oh, and he’s drawn somewhere in the realm of two million Young Marvel covers for Marvel Comics. Recently, Young celebrated his 10th anniversary of Marvel covers by launching his Big Marvels line of variants. He is also currently writing Ain't No Grave, his latest creator-owned series.

CGC will be offering a custom Skottie Young label for this signing, which customers can add on to submissions for this event.
