I have two copies of Aliens #2 (Vol. 1, 1988 ) that was signed by someone years ago but now I can't figure out who the person is based on their signature.

I attached a scan of their signature. I'd appreciate help figuring it out.

that kinda looks like a pen test to me...looking at the contribs it doesnt resemble any of the main 4 i can confirm

Mark Nelson (Cover/Pencils)
Randy Stradley (Editor)
Mark Verhaiden (Scripts)
Willie Schubert (Letters)

The only other 2 it could possibly be would be the Inker and/or Colorist which i think Mark Nelson May have been both but cannot confirm... although a thought came to me...i was at Detroit Fanfare back in 2010 and an artist i didnt recognize was selling signed books of Land of the Dead comics. I was sure he hadnt had anything to do with the book so i asked him why he was selling these books with his signiture...apparently because they printed an ad or art piece in the book that he did...which brings me back around and if it is indeed a signature maybe theres something else in the book that can help you...it does look like its signed on the inside...

Another thing you can do is cross reference with the cast of the movie...thatd be a cool find if that was the case...lol

Not sure either, but a way I found a sigature for a guy a few weeks ago was go to all the creators Facebook/twitter pages and see if you can find it or if you're on twitter or FB just ask.

Thanks for the reply so far. This was at a Dallas con. It is a signature and one of the creators. I'll check their Facebook accounts or Google.

Mystery solved. I looked on the first place I should have gone: eBay.

It's Mark Nelson.

Though how the hell you get his name out of that sig is beyond me. ;-)

Thanks.

I thought that sig looked familiar...I have a copy of Aliens that he signed.
I did see his sig on a piece here - https://twitter.com/hashtag/MarkANelson?src=hash
and it didn't look like it...
