    It's Con Season! Autograph Etiquette
    Written by Zenguru

    It's Duck Season!  It's Wabbit Season!  No, it's Con Season!  Here's some hints and how-ya-dos for getting autographs from your favorite writers and artists! Ah, yes.  Con Season is already well under way.  And the biggest shows have yet to stroll our way.  But whether a show is big or small.  We can't help but want to devour it all.  If you're anything like me, you love getting comics signed by your favorite writers and artists.  I've slogged my way through comicons for the past 15 years or so and I've met many different comic creators in the process.  And they all have different rules for signing and/or selling stuff.  Gradually, I learned there is a particular etiquette to getting stuff signed.  I had to learn that I can't always get everything I want signed, but I can get the stuff signed that means most to me.

    (excerpt)

    Pittsburgh Comicon '99 (or was it '00?):  A retailer who shall remain nameless brought around a dozen copies of the Avengers #12 headshot variant to be signed by George Perez.  Perez later learned this fellow sold those copies at the show for a very high premium.  From then on, Perez vowed never to sign multiple copies again.  Don't know if he's maintained that rule since, but it was a dirty trick.

    The lesson here is don't be a jerk and generally you'll get what you want.  Trust me, they do remember.
