CGC and Dynamite have partnered for an exclusive Signature Series graded option for the upcoming Gargoyles #1. The 1:250 Retailer Incentive cover signed by writer/creator Greg Weisman will be available for retailers to order based on orders placed through Final Order Cutoff only. The ultra-rare variant features original cover art by Drew Moss.
Each signed copy of this ultra-limited edition will ship with a CGC Certificate of Authenticity and a CGC coupon enabling buyers to have their copies graded and returned with a yellow CGC SIGNATURE SERIES LABEL. Any fees associated with grading will be the responsibility of the retailer or customer.
CGC will provide an authorized witness at the Weisman signing, and to further protect the authenticity and security of each signature, advanced measures have been taken so the COA cannot be replicated.
If you, the retailer, or a customer would like to have the book graded, follow the directions below:
- Become a CGC member if you are currently not.
- Email the Signature Series team that you will be submitting your signed Gargoyles #1 1:250 Retailer Incentive with COA to CGC. They will supply you with a simple form to fill out.
- Get your copy or copies ready for shipment. IMPORTANT: keep the COA and Gargoyles #1 submitted for signing together. The COA MUST be present to receive a CGC Signature Series grade. Don’t forget to add the form from the Signature Series team!
- On the outside of your shipping box put the initials G W on all sides.
- Ship directly to the Signature Series team’s attention.

All copies must be received by the Signature Series team no more than 30 days after you receive them. Copies ordered outside the United States must be received no more than 45 days after you receive them.
These copies will be shipped as close to the release date of the regular debut issue as possible, but Dynamite says grades cannot be guaranteed. Rest assured, books will be packed as best as possible for shipping. Dynamite adds:
Because we cannot guarantee that shipping damages will not occur in transit, there will be an opportunity for retailers to submit photo evidence of significantly damaged copies to their Diamond Customer Service representative at which point they will return to Dynamite, who will then make every attempt to make sure retailers are satisfied with their copies.
Please note that Dynamite cannot guarantee any specific condition or minimum grade on the comics received. Damaged copies also must be returned to qualify for replacement.
Each copy of the variant will have its own unique number and will be strictly limited to initial qualifying orders. This variant will be on Final Order Cutoff on November 14.
Gargoyles #1 will arrive in comics shops on Wednesday, December 7. It will also be available on digital platforms.
