Need help with signature identification.6335

Collector IxDmackxI private msg quote post Address this user
I found this copy of Nova 1 (1999) at a used book store. I am not sure who's signature is on it. I think it is Erik Larsen but not sure. Can anyone confirm or deny that? Also, do you guys think it would be worth having this submitted for verification?

Thanks

Totally Erik Larsen it looks just like the printed signature on both.

Thanks! I just wasn't positive. I was kinda shocked to find this for $1.

A local artist sometimes comes in and signs books (often dollar bin stuff) at my LCS - Leonard Kirk

Had a long run as artist on Supergirl until 2013 I think - turned out to be an ok read (always liked Peter David scripts though)

I wrote an article on Erik after I got a chance to interview him once, his nightmare pencil grip definitely made the article.

The "professional signature" creators use on comics and art. Probably not the same used on personal checks and CC receipts.

As mentioned, the sharpie sigs are clearly speedy versions of the sig printed on the cover art.
