CGC Welcomes J. Scott Campbell for Another Exclusive Private Signing Event!

Posted on 7/30/2021

Comic industry superstar J. Scott Campbell returns for another signing opportunity!

CGC is excited to announce a very special Private Signing event with the talented comic book artist J. Scott Campbell! Without a doubt, Campbell is one of the industry’s finest and most sought-after cover artists with a versatile and unique style that has brought many of Marvel and DC’s most iconic characters to life.

Campbell has made a name for himself in the industry with his inimitable technique, which elevated him to the upper echelons of modern comic book artists. He began his career as an artist for Wildstorm Comics, working on notable titles such as WildC.A.T.S Sourcebook and Stormwatch, and later collaborated to create the series GEN 13.

Along with fellow comic artists, he founded the Cliffhanger imprint as part of Wildstorm Productions and launched his comic series titled Danger Girl through this imprint, which later became a top selling video game under Sony PlayStation.

A few of Campbell's other notable achievements include: having his art brought to life as beautiful 3D statues and fine art prints by Sideshow Collectibles, creating several recent bestselling cover variants in 2019 with Black Cat #1 and Spawn #300, creating highly popular Marvel collector's convention variants and exclusive variants featuring favorite characters from the DC and Marvel universes and working on special project variants with Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Oblivion Song) and Todd McFarlane (Spawn and Spawn's Universe), and other acclaimed artists and writers.

“The CGC Signature Series team and I are so pumped to be hosting another Private Signing with the legendary comic book artist J. Scott Campbell,” said Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “We are so thrilled to be given this opportunity, and we are certain that fans are going to absolutely love this signing!”
