CGC with SWAU Hosts Marvel Universe Star Kat Dennings for a First-Ever Private Signing

Posted on 3/16/2021

Exciting first-ever signing opportunity!

CGC is thrilled to partner with SWAU to bring to comic fans an exclusive Private Signing with Kat Dennings! This will be Dennings’ first-ever autograph signing, and we are so honored to have her join the CGC Lineup!

The acclaimed actress made her first professional debut on HBO’s Sex and the City and has since continued to work on other amazing projects. Dennings is an actress and producer best known for her roles starring as Max Black in the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls and Darcy Lewis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero films Thor and Thor: The Dark World. In addition to playing Darcy Lewis, she has also starred in the Disney+ miniseries WandaVision and has a recurring role in Netflix’s original series Big Mouth.

“We are so stoked to partner with SWAU for this special signing for this first-ever Dennings’ signing event,” shared Brittany McManus, CGC’s Signature Series Director. “I’m overjoyed that such an incredible actress who has starred in so many hit series is joining our signing lineup.”

For this exclusive event, ALL CGC members — that includes free CGC members — can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Tuesday, June 15, 2021.

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

After Dennings signs the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an expedited turnaround time of three weeks. If CCS pressing is also requested, the expedited turnaround time will be six weeks. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners.

The CGC Private Signing fee for Kat Dennings is $140 per item and includes:

  • Kat Dennings’ 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)
