CGC is excited to announce an exclusive In-House Private Signing with award-winning comic book writer Tony Isabella! Over the course of his 50-year career in comics, Isabella was an editor and writer at Marvel Comics, and he also worked at DC, where he created Black Lightning, the company’s first prominent African-American superhero.
Isabella is best known for his work on major series like Captain America, Daredevil, Dracula, Ghost Rider, Hawkman, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, Star Trek and the Living Mummy. He is the author of 1000 Comic Books You Must Read and July 1963: A Pivotal Month in the Comic-Book Life of Tony Isabella and also co-wrote the prose novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse.
Isabella received an Inkpot Award from Comic-Con International in San Diego and a Pioneer Lifetime Achievement Award from ECBACC. He was the second inductee to the Hall of Heroes Museum’s Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana. Most recently, Isabella worked on an acclaimed six-issue run titled Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands.
“The Signature Series team and I can’t wait to have Tony Isabella join us for this exclusive In-House Private Signing,” said Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “His career has spanned decades and his contributions to comics are top notch. We’re so happy to have him join us and offer fans an opportunity to get their favorite books signed by him!”
