CGC Celebrates The 35th Anniversary of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns By Welcoming Comic Legends Frank Miller & Klaus Janson For An In-House Private Signing

Get ready Batman fans because two of the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns creators are coming in for a CGC In-House Private Signing! Legendary comic book artist, writer, director and producer Frank Miller and the award-winning comic book artist Klaus Janson will be doing a duo signing at our headquarters.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns was released in 1986, making this year its 35th anniversary. If you submit one of the Batman: Dark Knight Returns books for this signing, the label will read “Dark Knight Returns 35th Anniversary Signing.” This special notation will only be available to the Batman: Dark Knight Returns mini-series which includes these four titles The Dark Knight Returns, Dark Knight Triumphant, Hunt the Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Falls. This signing is the only time you will be able to get this notation on the label!

In addition to signatures, Miller and Janson will also offer Remarques for purchase, and Miller will offer a very limited quantity of head sketches.

Miller has been a professional comic book creator since he was a teen, bringing his gritty storytelling and intense art style to publishers like Golden Key, DC and Marvel. His arsenal of work stretches far, but some of his most famous work includes titles like Batman, Ronin, Elektra Assassin, Daredevil and 300. Miller also illustrated the graphic novel, Cursed, which has gone on to be a successful Netflix series.

Janson is an award-winning comic book penciller, inker and colorist who has worked for DC and Marvel Comics. Janson and Miller have not only worked on Batman: The Dark Knight together but also Marvel’s Daredevil and Elektra series. In addition, Janson has worked on titles like The Amazing Spider-Man, Defenders, The Punisher, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Thor and Wolverine. In 2010 Janson was anointed into the Joe Sinnott Hall, and in 2013 was given the Inkwell Award for Favorite Inker.

“We are thrilled to offer this special label for this very special private signing — in honor of the 35th anniversary of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns,” said Brittany McManus, CGC’s Signature Series Director. “We think that our collectors will love this opportunity, PLUS these are two incredible comic book creators that are legendary for so many other titles, too. We’re really looking forward to seeing the variety of books that arrive for this one!”

For this exclusive event, ALL CGC members — that includes free CGC members — can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Monday, March 15, 2021.

After Miller and/or Janson sign the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an expedited turnaround time of only three weeks. If CCS pressing is also requested, the expedited turnaround time will be six weeks. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners.
