The Sig does matter!!!

Yes, it does. Frank Miller does not do many signings and price shows it. Given the right artist or writer, it can impact a book significantly. My only complaint is that Frank's signature is so terrible looking (not very pleasant looking if it wasn't authenticated by CGC).

Tell me about it. He was a real pain to get to that day.

Thanks Supa, I can always bring the books with me San Diego if anyone is interested.

 

I also have a set of Marvels 1-4 (9.4, 9.4, 9.8, 9.6) signed by Alex Ross up, along with a Planetary 1 9.6 signed by Cassaday and a Pro 1 9.8 signed by Palmiotti and Conner. Auctions end in a few hours.

OK who would you say is the toughest, of those who are still alive?

 

No doubt about it... Steve Ditko.

I would like to know if ANYONE out there has a book signed by SD, if they do, chances are its a fake.

Obviously people have already said this but Ditko's is not obtainable. Literally.. The only thing I've been able to find that was for sale with his signature is one of his contracts that he did on some crappy title he created.. I honestly don't think the guy would sign a comic book if you asked him.

The one thing I know of that has an authentic Ditko signature is the original cover art to Superman # 411 the Julius tribute issue (crappy scan from Wizard I blew up below. Where is the sig? I dunno, but I'm pretty sure that's Gil Kane's right on Julie's bald head.). Sold for over $4,000. I also know I guy on Ebay that wrote to Steve and received a letter back, stating that he does not sign comic books. But that reply letter was signed by him, so that's something (I know, how do you know 100%?) 211895-julie.jpg
