Topic: Comic Book Artists
However, IF the friend or family member is a comic book fan, then it can be a little easier if you know of a comic book convention or a comic book store signing that is happening near you!
Which is one of the reasons that we blog about upcoming comic cons here! Many comics creators attend these conventions, and either can be found at autograph booths, or in an artists' alley where their works are available for sale and are more than willing to personalize their works for you!
You should be able to easily find out what comic books or graphic novels your friend or family member enjoys reading or collecting.
Then just attend a comic convention or even a local comic book store (LCBS) book signing to have a comic or graphic signed / personalized to that friend or family member!
If you can't make it to any of those conventions or LCBS signings, then there are a couple of companies that actually do have creators sign their works, and are sold with a Certificate Of Authenticity (COA) for an extra premium amount over the cover price of the item.
Additionally several creators are either self published or have their own web site where they have their own works for sale and can personalize and / or sign their creations for you when asked....
At the top left of this blog post is a photo of Sharon Blair dressed as 'Synn' of FemForce, who in 1992, signed and personalized a special photo cover issue of herself for me.
That was just one of many comics, graphic novels, and books that I have had signed over the many years I have been collecting.
I still find it relatively hard to get all the autographs I would like to get, even though Tina and I attend many conventions! So it is really nice when a friend or family member attends a con we can't get to and has someone to sign their creative work and send it as a gift to me!
