Which Celeb Charges The Most For An Autograph At NY Comic Con?

Meeting your favorite stars isn't always cheap.

by Carl Williott

The pop culture behemoth that is Comic-Con has landed in New York City, drawing together fans of "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones" and various things that aren't "The Walking Dead" or "Game of Thrones." On the itinerary are the requisite Q&A panels, exclusive screenings and inside info, as well as the chance to get autographs from the stars and creators of numerous pop-culture landmarks.

But beware, those signings often come with a (cash-only) fee, and can feel more like a deli counter transaction than the greatest moment of your life. By all means, meet your idols and geek heroes this weekend...just be prepared for the potential sticker shock. To help you gauge your budget, here are the signing fees for a bunch of celebrities at 2014 NYCC.

Travie McCoy: $0

You know Mr. Socko would just piss away the cash anyway.

Cheaper than flying to England to see "Jerry Springer: The Opera."

Paul F. Tompkins: $0

But how does he pay for all those three-piece suits?

John Hodgman: $0

Think of the price he could've demanded during the "I'm a PC" heyday.

The man single-handedly got an entire generation to read; he can charge whatever he wants. Which, luckily, is nothing.

She really could've asked for more.

Anyone who has seen "The Wrestler" and decides not to shell out money to these modern gladiators is a monster, plain and simple.

Billy Zabka: $30

Modest price for an encounter with the most dastardly bully of the '80s.

Ralph Macchio: $35

Wait, why aren't Macchio and Zabka a packaged deal? What is one without the other? Do you think Macchio wouldn't set his price until he knew Bill's?

Tom Kenny: $35

An autograph from SpongeBob much is it worth to be your nephew's favorite relative forever?

Lucy Lawless: $85

Sir Patrick may have the rabid demand of Trekkies and X-Men fans, but after a few guest spots on "Parks and Rec," the Warrior Princess can demand the highest price in all of the NYCC land.
