CGC is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting an exclusive In-House Private Signing with award-winning comic book writer, Tom DeFalco! DeFalco was also an editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics, with over 50 books currently in print.

DeFalco joined the comic book industry in 1972 and has written comics starring Spider-Man, Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham, Fantastic Four, Thor, Superman, Superboy, The Flintstones and Archie. He has also produced Spider-Man: The Ultimate Guide and Comic Creators on Spider-Man.

“The Signature Series team is super excited to have Tom DeFalco join us for this exclusive In-House Private Signing,” said Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “He’s a legend in the industry who’s worked on many sought-after books in the collecting community. We can’t wait to see all the awesome submissions for this signing!”

For this exclusive signing, ALL CGC members, including free CGC members, can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Friday, February 17, 2023.

If the In-House Private Signing needs to be rescheduled, CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled. 

After DeFalco 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. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners.
