Sarasota, Fla. –  As 2020 comes to a close, CGC announced today some exciting news for comic book fans for 2021. TMNT creator Kevin Eastman will be joining another big comic book creator Ben Bishop for and exclusive in-house CGC signing event. “Cowabunga Dude!” 

Kevin Eastman is a comic book artist, writer and creator who is best known for co-creating Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles along with the man Peter Laird in 1984.  If you are old like me, or an avid TMNT fan you can remember back when the black and white, oversized comic, made by some no name publishing company all of a sudden was all over the fucking place. Yeah Eastman was one of the minds behind the Turtles and never ending battle against Shredder. 

After a little break from the TMNT, Eastman, reemerge in 2011 as IDW Publishing began to reboot the hit TMNT comic series. In addition to TMNT, Eastman is also the publisher and editor of Heavy Metal magazine.

Ben Bishop is a comic book artist and creator who is well-known for work on Eastman’s co-created series, Drawing Blood. He also has a LONG list of other worked on comics like, Canto, Canto II: The Hollow Men, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, TMNT, The Last Ronin, Savage Dragon, Bloodshot and and more.

The creative Duo will be in the CGC headquarters signing submissions from comic book fans from across the globe AND they are also offering Remarque’s from both creators. Sick right!

For this event, CGC has announced this is open to ALL members — that includes free CGC members. So lets go over what ya need to know so you don’t miss this awesome opportunity.  

“We know there are some serious TMNT comic fans out there who are going to be ecstatic about this signing!...Whether you’re into collecting the new TMNT series or you grew up with the classics — or maybe you love the Drawing Blood series — this signing is for you! We cannot wait to see the new, the old and the unique come in.”

Once Eastman and Bishop sign your book, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with a turnaround time of only three weeks, which is awesome. If CCS pressing is requested, the time will be slightly longer at six weeks. Which is still less than 2 months!

 After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back and you can find that perfect spot to show off your latest piece of kick ass memorabilia! 

Other Things To Know
  • If you submit a CGC-graded collectible that needs to be removed from its original holder by CGC, the collectible will need to go through the certification and encapsulation process again, and there is no guarantee that it will receive the same grade.
  • No Multi-Sigs included with other signings.
  • Membership credits cannot be applied to CGC In-House Private Signings.

“If the CGC In-House Private Signing needs to be rescheduled CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled.”
