PRIVATE RECEPTION AND ART WITH GEORGE PEREZ AT NEW YORK COMIC CON
Personal time and a rollickin’ 3-minute sketch!
Master artist George Pérez will be at the New York Comic Con
Feb. 6-8. But YOU can soak up your Pérez magic away from the teeming
masses in a relaxed, private environment—and get a George Pérez
original all at the same time! And proceeds benefit The Hero
Initiative, the charity dedicated to helping comic creators in medical
or financial need!
Join comic art legend George Perez in a relaxed, private room
environment where only 20 fans will be admitted! George's collaborator
Bob Wiacek will be on hand as well. You can bring up to five books to
be autographed by George (and Bob, so dig out those Brave and Bolds)
and CGC will have a Signature Series witness on site if you wish to get
autographed books certified by CGC in their Signature Series. PLEASE
NOTE: CGC’s Signature Series service is a separate cost you pay direct
to CGC. See www.CGCComics.com
for details. A portion of proceeds raised from books submitted for the
CGC Signature Series from this signing will go towards the Hero
Best of all, in the tradition of Hero's rollickin' The 3-Minute
Sketchbook, George will do a 3-minute sketch of a character of your
choice on site!
