I think JSC is gracious enough to address "fans" by offering one FREE signature (Non-CGC) and if you reflect upon the gesture, that's actually and should be "enough" of a gift to appease most people, in that it is an autograph and one is all someone really needs for their experience and collection, not necessarily to get multiples per se.

I saw Larry Hama @ Wonder Con offer FREE autographs with a PERSONALIZATION mandate, otherwise there was a fee for signatures, which to me is a bonus to a fan to get something addressed to them vs just a person cranking out signatures with their head down and no eye contact.

The whole Signature Series thing is good for the hobby, as a business, and the artists are treating it as such. It's a bit cold and impersonal and all about the the money, the high grades and isolation (Slabbing).

On a side note about Campbell's signing info, he will sign 1 item for free each day, unless this has changed. So, if you are at SDCC, you could conceivably get 5 items signed for free.

On a couple occasions, he has signed 2-3 things for me for free. That being said, I typically bring in odds and ends for him to sign like cards and posters he forget he even did I guess he likes seeing and signing stuff like that.

Are you referring to the Venom 1:50? If so, not sure I would call that "phoned in." Does not do anything for me, but, to each their own.

I have to agree mainly because most of JSC's covers as of late have been sort of static pin-ups, albeit glamorous and beautiful, it lacked what this one has, which is a storytelling element. I think this cover is great!
