Get your books ready for an exciting George Pérez signing opportunity!

CGC is thrilled to announce another In-House Private Signing with comic book artist and writer George Pérez!

In addition to signing, Pérez will also be offering a limited number of his incredible sketches for purchase. See pricing and details below.

Pérez began drawing at the age of five and later became fascinated with comic books and their illustrations. Today, he has contributed to many famous titles and is considered to be one of the most sought-after artists in the comic industry. He is best known for his contributions to the New Teen Titans and the Crisis on Infinite Earth storyline.

Pérez’s work also includes The Avengers, Fantastic Four and his co-created character White Tiger who appeared in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Meanwhile, some of his DC titles are Justice League of America, X-Men, Superman and the relaunch of Wonder Woman. He also provided artwork for various titles for CrossGen and was involved with the writing and drawing projects related to DC’s The Brave and The Bold. Now retired, Pérez is currently the co-chairman of the board of the comic industry charity A Commitment To Our Roots.

“We are so honored to be able to host such a legendary artist for a second In-House Private Signing event at our headquarters,” said Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “George Pérez is a fantastic artist who has been part of creating many seminal titles, and we cannot wait for this event”.
