CGC is having Frank Miller (and a bunch of others, including Perez) do an in-house private signing...but $130 per book for signing and grading. Not sure what a Miller auto would cost at a con, but whew it's steep, but at the same time, it's rare...and it's Frank Miller, so I'm springing for a couple books to be signed because it's for my PC and who knows how long he'll be around.

Does the same hold true for signed original art? I inherited two splash pages and they are both signed, one with a personalization.

Original art is one-of-a-kind so it's unlikely that a signature will make it more or less valuable.

Signature collecting is an entirely separate stand-alone hobby. The less often a person signs and the more notable the person is, the more likely their autograph will increase the value of something.
If it's an artist of average reputation who is only known to the comics community, the autograph would have little or no impact on the value of the art.

There might be situations where the signature of a high profile artist outside of the comic collecting community could increase the value of original comic art, but it would be difficult to make that assertion since art is one-of-a-kind anyway.

Generally speaking, collectors are going to be less interested in items personalized to someone else unless that someone else is famous or just happens to have the same name as them.
