Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 - What Could Be Better?

Posted on 9/14/2011

Marvel’s Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 goes on sale today, the first issue featuring Miles Morales who first appeared in Ultimate Fallout #4 as the all-new Spider-Man! What could be better than that you ask? How about 100 copies signed by Stan Lee and witnessed by CGC.

Marvel authorized CGC to witness Stan Lee sign 100 copies of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1. Numbered 1-100, each book will be poly-bagged and sent out randomly today in Marvel’s standard distribution. For distributors receiving this book it will be like getting the golden ticket that you didn’t even know existed.

But wait, there’s more! In addition to Lee’s signature, select copies are inscribed, “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.” For those receiving one of these variant books there is an extra special bonus – free CGC certification. That’s right - the lucky recipients of those books can submit them to CGC and will receive grading and certification at no charge.

This is the first time a distributed copy of a signed comic book is eligible for the Signature Series label. Joe Pierson, CGC’s Signature Series Director, had the pleasure of witnessing Stan Lee sign each book. “We're very excited, not only to work with Marvel Comics, but also to present this great opportunity to put Signature Series label books into the hands of fans and collectors who may be unfamiliar with CGC and Signature Series,” commented Pierson.

If you’re one of the fortunate 100 to receive a signed copy of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1, contact CGC Signature Series at 1-877-662-6642 to get submission details.
