CGC In-House Private Signing with Comic Book Illustrator Mike Mayhew

Posted on 6/9/2020

The latest comic book artist who has agreed to do a CGC In-House Private Signing is illustrator Mike Mayhew. Mayhew specializes in photo-realism and intense rendering of dynamic subjects, using an approach that ranges from state-of-the-art digital techniques to traditional watercolor and acrylic painting. He has worked on many variant covers, Star Wars books and other Marvel publications. 

We’re extremely thrilled to share that Mayhew, in addition to his signature, will also be providing his incredible Remarques! These are available on a first-come-first-serve basis, so be sure to act quickly (example of Mayhew Remarque below).

“I’m excited to bring the experience of getting my latest variants — or older stuff you may have collected — signed by me without leaving the comfort and safety of your own home,” Mayhew says. “The CGC In-House Private Signings make it possible for all fans to get their favorite works signed.”

For Mayhew’s CGC In-House Private Signing, both free and paid CGC members can submit collectibles directly to CGC headquarters in Florida. CGC will coordinate with Mayhew for the collectibles to be signed in mid-July.

If the CGC In-House Private Signing needs to be rescheduled due to travel restrictions or other reasons, CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled.

After Mayhew signs the collectibles, CGC will grade them with expedited turnaround times of three weeks for grading or six weeks for grading and pressing. Collectibles are then shipped back to their owners.

The CGC In-House Private Signing fee of $65 per item includes:

  • Mike Mayhew’s signature
  • Expedited turnaround time of three weeks for CGC grading
  • Expedited turnaround time of six weeks for CGC grading and CCS pressing (an additional $20 fee applies for CCS pressing)
  • Encapsulation with CGC’s iconic yellow Signature Series label

The fee for a Mayhew Remarque is $180, and includes:

  • Mike Mayhew illustrated Remarque (submitter can request image drawn)
  • Mike Mayhew signature
  • Encapsulation with CGC’s iconic yellow Signature Series label
  • Expedited turnaround time of six weeks for CGC grading and CCS pressing (an additional $20 fee applies for CCS pressing)
  • 100 spots available, first-come-first-serve basis, when the option is gone, all spots have been taken

CGC must receive all submissions for this event at its Florida headquarters by Friday, July 3, 2020.
