Comic Industry Trailblazer Jim Shooter Is Coming to CGC for an In-House Private Signing

Posted on 6/16/2020



In conjunction with Eva Ink Artist Group, CGC's In-House Private Signing lineup just got even better with the addition of Jim Shooter, all-around comic industry trailblazer and legend. Shooter began professionally in comics at the age of 13 when he sold aLegion of Super-Heroes story to DC Comics. He went on to write Superboy, The Legion of Super-Heroes, Superman and other titles. In 1978, he became the Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics and introduced royalties and other incentives for creators.

Shooter is known for his in-depth characters and love for crossover comics, like the Korvac Saga where he was the first to bring every Avenger (at the time) and Guardians of the Galaxy character together in one series. After his tenure at Marvel, Shooter went on to found Valiant, Defiant and Broadway Comics and was the principal creator of their characters and universes.

CGC is thrilled to have Shooter in for a private signing and his fans will also be excited to hear he will be doing a multi-signature option with former colleagues Mike Zeck and John Beatty.

“CGC is offering fans an incredible opportunity with the In-House Private Signings,” said Shooter. “As an Editor in Chief, I know how amazing it is when you successfully gather a who’s who of talent, and that’s what CGC is doing with its In-House Private Signings.”

For Shooter’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 Shooter for the collectibles to be signed in mid-August.
