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.

Stan Lee Signing Amazing Fantastic Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir At Barnes And Noble At The Grove On November 7, 2015


Comic book legend Stan Lee  will be signing his memoir, Amazing Fantastic Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir at Barnes and Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles on November 7, 2015 at noon.

The book is described as follows:

In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic memoir, Stan Lee—comic book legend and cocreator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes—shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be.

Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life—and into the mainstream—some of the world’s best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories—filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity—added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth century.

In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir—illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran—Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career.

This funny, moving, and incredibly honest memoir is a must-have for collectors and fans of comic books and graphic novels of every age.

Josh Cooley To Sign New Book, Movies R Fun At Gallery 1988 On February 22, 2014


On Saturday, February 22, 2014, come to Gallery 1988 (West) between 8-10 PM for the return of Josh Cooley. To celebrate the new book, Movies R Fun! A Collection of Cinematic Classics For The Pre-(Film) School Cinephile, G1988 will be the 1st place you can purchase Cooley’s movie-inspired children’s book and get tons of prints (and even a few originals), all limited edition. The artist will be on hand to sign the book.

The 48 page hardcover cleverly translates memorable scenes from classic contemporary films into the format of an “inappropriate Golden Book.”


The idea for the book originated when Josh’s daughter was born and he realized it would be at least 17 years before he could share his favorite films with her. His tongue-in-cheek solution was a child’s book that could introduce some of the most memorable moments of those films
