How many autographs

Recommended Posts

This will be my first event so sorry if this is a dumb question !

If I pay for an autograph ticket can I get more than one item signed or do I need a ticket for each item

 

Thanks

Ian

You pay per autograph. Usually what happens is in the queue you pay for how many you want, and they give you a slip on which it's marked how many you have paid for which you give to the guests assistant so they can see how many you can have.

 

If memory serves me you can get up to 5 auto's in one go, if you want more you have to re queue, which might mean getting a second VQ number if they haven't got an open queue.

This is just for the TV guests? Or comic guests also

 

(Mainly if VQ for Larry Hama, Uncle Bob B, Jose Delbo, Guido)

Not sure about the comic guests as I've never been to see them but I'd imagine it's the same set up - certainly the auto price is per signature unless otherwise stated for everyone as far as I'm aware.

Comic book guests don't usually charge for autographs but they often do for sketches, although it's never that much.

They also have comics along - original art, art packs, scripts (if its the writer), prints (I like the A3 art prints you can pick up - Lee Townsend had Spiderman prints on sale back at BICS)

I got a couple of comics autographed and I quite literally went up to their table and asked them to sign it, which they did with no problem and no cost.

Comic guests in general (Stan Lee was a different case) won't charge you for signing comics they have worked on if you bring them along. They will normally charge for their own prints or to do a sketch.

As stated the comic artist/writers don't charge for signing comics , I took 4 to be signed by alan Davis at lfcc ( he had quite a quee !) some bloke in front of me must of had about 30+ comics to sign which he signed (alan did look a bit pissed off !) but most artist don't have a quee so you can just walk up to and ask nicely for a signature all the ones I meet at lfcc were really nice and happily chatted to you !

I saw Alan Davis at BICS 2006 & got 5 issue signed but was a que. I offer to pay £5 for signe dstuff that was his sktech rate & Alan said "No I'll sign them for free"

I'm just gutted there was such a big que for him as would have loved an original sketch by him !

I know some (Dan Slott definitely) are happy to sign, but only put a limit of 5 in one go or something, if they have a huge queue. If it's quuiet though, then they can chat and sign more without holding anyone up.

 

The 5 in one go thing is mainly so that everyone stands a chance of getting things signed.

Dan Slott was awesome when I met him, but like you say, there was a 5 item limit. If you wanted more you'd have to requeue.
