This is a comic book signing. Both Jason Aaron and CM Punk are coming to Challengers to meet fans and sign comics. To allow them to meet the most fans and sign the most books in three hours, we will be enforcing the following guidelines:
To enter the CM Punk autograph line, you must purchase a ticket. Your ticket includes, for free, 1 (one) copy of the CM Punk co-written Thor Annual #1 (a $4.99 cover price comic book). With your ticket purchase, you may have up to FIVE items signed by CM Punk. You may choose not to have your Thor Annual signed if you’d like to get five other items signed.
At checkout through Eventbrite, you will have the option of purchasing up to 4 (four) additional copies of Thor Annual #1 for pick up at the event. Additional copies purchased will not increase the number of items you can get signed.
Other than the ticket purchase, no further payment is required for any autographs.
CM Punk will be signing wrestling items, if you have any you’d like to bring.
When you are meeting CM Punk, we ask that you leave your phone in your pocket. No photos, no selfies, no audio recordings, no podcast recordings. If you have your phone out before you get your items signed, we will ask you to put it away.
You may have items personalized (To Patrick), but no messages (To My Favoritest Widdle Fan In The Whole Wide World).
There is no public restroom on the premises.
Tickets to this event will be limited to one per person. Only the person named on the ticket will be eligible to stand in line for an autograph. Please bring a photo ID with you to the event, as we may need to verify that you are eligible to be in line for an autograph.
