CGC Private Signing with Hall of Fame Inductee Roy Thomas


CGC is beyond thrilled to share the news that the award-winning comic book writer and editor Roy Thomas will be joining us for an In-House Private Signing! Thomas is known for being the late Stan Lee’s first successor as Marvel Comics’ editor-in-chief. He is also the co-creator of several — and we mean several — great comic book characters such as Wolverine, Vision, Doc Samson, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Ultron, Ghost Rider, Banshee and Valkyrie. Beyond character creation, Thomas has had a number of long writing stints on series like Marvel’s X-Men and The Avengers, and DC’s All-Star Squadron.

When the first Star Wars film was released in 1977, Thomas was instrumental in constructing Marvel’s book adaptation of it. Thomas is also famous for introducing the Pulp magazine hero Conan the Barbarian, which has had several spin-off series and adaptations. Click here to see a database on all of Roy's creations and contributions to the industry.
