I was somewhat surprised a couple of years ago when Lou Ferrigno did an appearance at a local comic shop and he charged for everything. If you wanted a photo with him, you had to pay. If you wanted an autograph, you had to pay. If you wanted him to autograph something other than one of the glossies he had with him, you had to pay significantly more. I had brought an old Dynamite magazine from the 70's with me for him to sign, but it was too pricey for me to have him do so. I still paid for the autographed glossy and a photo with him, because the Incredible Hulk had been my favorite show as a kid. But I think for the most part I would tend to skip photo ops and autographs I have to pay for...If I am shelling out my hard earned money, I rather do it for a CD or a DVD or a concert ticket - get some entertainment value out of it you know? For a book signing, I guess it would depend on the cost...if I spend something on a book and can spend just a little more to have said book signed, that could be cool. But if I spent $20 on a book and have to spend that much or more on top of that to get the autograph, no thanks.
