CGC Announces In-House Private Signing with Renowned Comic Book Creator Bob Layton
CGC is excited to announce an exclusive In-House Private Signing with Bob Layton, a Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Award-winning comic book creator. During his illustrious career, Layton has worked for both Marvel and DC Comics, and he co-founded Valiant Comics, where he was instrumental in developing the Valiant Universe. Layton has stated that this signing will be one of the only opportunities for fans to procure his signature this year, as he will be traveling internationally for several months once he has completed this signing.

Layton is best known for his work on Iron Man for Marvel Comics, where he introduced many important characters like Bethany Cabe, James Rhodes and Justin Hammer. In addition to Iron Man, he contributed to many other well-known Marvel series including The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, The Avengers, Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars and X-Factor. During his time with DC, he worked on series such as Batman Family, Batman: Dark Knight of the Round Table, Batman: Hollywood Knight, DC Super Stars and Star Hunters.

After co-founding Valiant Comics, Layton co-created one of the company’s most iconic characters, X-O Manowar, and eventually became Editor-in-Chief and Senior Vice President of the company.

CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Friday, April 7, 2023.

After Layton signs the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an estimated turnaround time of six weeks. If CCS pressing is also requested, the turnaround time is estimated at eight weeks.
