Posted on 7/28/2021

CGC welcomes back the award-winning, multi-talented Al Milgrom!

CGC is beyond thrilled to be hosting the multi-talented comic industry icon Al Milgrom for another In-House Private Signing! Milgrom is a prolific writer, penciller, inker and editor, primarily for Marvel Comics. He is best known for his 10-year run as editor of Marvel Fanfare and as writer and illustrator for Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man, West Coast Avengers, X-Factor, Thunderstrike and much more.

In addition to signing, Milgrom will also be offering his fantastic Remarques for purchase. See pricing details and examples below!

Milgrom began his career in the comic industry as an assistant for inker Murphy Anderson. During that time, Milgrom contributed to Charlton Comics’ Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves, Star*Reach and comics published by Warren Publishing before joining forces with Marvel.

At Marvel, Milgrom pencilled for Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy, which was featured in Marvel Presents. He also wrote and drew The Incredible Hulk, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Deadly Foes of Spider-Man limited series. In addition, Milgrom worked as editor at DC Comics and co-created Ronnie Raymond, the original Firestorm. He is an Inkwell Awards Special Recognition Award recipient.
