Embrace the darker side of the comic book universe with this collection of (11) signed graphic novels. While the term “graphic novel” encompasses a broad spectrum of subject matter, typically books that fall into this category are high quality publications aimed at a mature audience.

This exciting group reports in new to like-new condition, with autographs of leading genre figures from America and the UK.
