Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) is excited to be accepting submissions of comic books, cards, video games and home video collectibles at San Diego Comic Con, being held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, on July 25-28, 2024.

San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is one of the largest and most popular comic conventions in the world. SDCC began in 1970 as the "Golden State Comic Book Convention" and has since evolved into a massive pop culture extravaganza. SDCC has a significant impact on the entertainment industry, as it serves as a platform for major announcements, trailers, and exclusive content. Some of the special guests this year include Joe Jusko, Mariko Tamaki, Christopher Paolini and Thien Pham. 

Fans also won't want to miss lots of fun happening at CGC booth #901 all weekend long! Fans can look forward to our beloved pin giveaway, our Batman and Wolverine anniversary submission pins, the Golden Egg Hunt, Meet the Grader and a special grand prize Deadpool-themed giveaway. We will also be hosting a panel — "Comic Book Grading 101 with CGC Comics" — featuring CGC Comics President Matt Nelson and CGC Comics Vice-President Shawn Caffrey, on Saturday, July 27, from 4:30-5:20 p.m. in Room 26. Stay tuned for further email and social announcements about giveaway opportunities leading up to the show.
