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).

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.
