Comic Book Artist and Creator, Marat Mychaels, Joins the CGC In-House Private Signing Lineup 

Posted on 7/18/2020

CGC has another excellent addition to the In-House Private Signing lineup: comic book artist and creator, Marat Mychaels! Mychaels started his career at Image Comics where he worked alongside Rob Liefeld on projects like the highly successful Extreme Studios series, Brigade. He has also worked for Marvel and DC Comics on titles like Deadpool Corps, X-Force: Shatterstar, Hawk and Dove and Grifter.

In addition, Mychaels has created incredible variant covers for some of the hottest books in the industry, including Deadpool, Lady Death and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Currently, he can be found running his own publishing company, Counterpoint Comics, and working on his successful line of books Do You Pooh?, Hardlee Thinn, Tiggomverse and Notti & Nyce .

Fans will also be excited to know that in addition to his signature, Mychaels is offering Remarques for purchase. See details below.

“Hey comic fans, I have to say I am really missing the personal interactions with you all at comic cons!” exclaimed Mychaels. “But this Private Signing opportunity with CGC is a great way for me to sign your books and for you to get your signings done safely. Until we can meet again in person, stay safe and I look forward to seeing what you send in!”

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

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

After Mychaels 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.
