CGC Attending Torpedo Con July 23-25 in Los Angeles

Posted on 7/7/2021

Comic collectors will have opportunities for in-person signature certifications at the three-day convention.

Legendary writers and artists from the comic book world — including Donny Cates, Bill Sienkiewicz and Brian Azzarello — will be collaborating with Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) during Hollywood's Torpedo Con to offer collectors a unique opportunity to obtain witness certified signatures. CGC staff members will be on hand during the show to answer questions and facilitate the certification of Signature Series submissions, which are items signed by artists and creators in the presence of a CGC representative to assure 100 percent authenticity. CGC staff also will be able to accept completed Blue Label comic book submissions at the event.

The convention will take place July 23-25 at the Hollywood Palladium at 6215 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, California.
