Trapped in a time paradox, the Sirens must face off against zombie versions of themselves and figure out a way to prevent the second destruction of Earth!
New Teen Titans Vol. 6 Paperback – January 10, 2017Writer Marv Wolfman (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS) and artist George Perez (FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF THREE WORLDS, Avengers) craft a timeless story starring Robin, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Cyborg, Changeling, Raven and Starfire--a group of young individuals with great powers and strong personalities.
by Marv Wolfman (Author)
The Teen Titans help fellow heroes Thunder and Lightning rescue their father from H.I.V.E. And when the Fearsome Five escape prison, it's up to the combined forces of the Titans and the Outisders to battle their army of Earth Creatures. Then, in one of the 1980s most legendary stories, Dick Grayson uncovers the startling truth behind the past of his teammate Donna Troi, a.k.a. Wonder Girl. And Kid Flash leaves the team after a grim battle against the forces of Brother Blood.

The Secret Life of Tom Smith: Comic book creator, stroke survivor
Chuck O'Donnell, Correspondent 8:04 p.m. EDT May 1, 2016
Smith was a top colorist in the comic book industry from two decades; 20 months ago, he had a stroke at a comic con event, but still has positive life outlookEditor’s note: “The Secret Life of …” is a weekly feature looking at the fascinating people across Central Jersey
Whether it was taking a leisurely drive to the mall or spending the night ballroom dancing with the missus, the stroke that Tom Smith suffered almost 21 months ago robbed him of some of his joys in life.
But he refuses to let it take his joy for life.
Smith worked dead-end jobs in factories for 10 years or so before finally breaking into comics. Soon, he and superstar artist George Perez formed a formidable creative team. They worked on hundreds of comics together, including the Hulk’s “Future Imperfect” event and the “JLA/Avengers” crossover story. Few people have made the irradiated glow of Hulk’s skin or golden tint of Iron Man’s helmet pop off the page like Smith.

This is my poster art for the Moonlight Players' final production of its 2015-2016 season. While I 'm not familiar with the play SULLIVAN AND GILBERT, the title characters are definitely well known to anyone who loves musical theater. I'm awaiting final approval from the director, Nathan Jessee, but I'm personally pleased with the results. I hope he agrees.
UPDATE: He does!! It's officially approved!!!!
George Pérez's Sirens #05 (BOOM! Studios Exclusive Cover)
Writer(s): George Pérez
Artist(s): George Pérez
Cover Artist(s): George Pérez
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. Item will ship for 5/11/16. WHY WE LOVE IT: The name George Pérez should say it all, but we are beyond excited to work with one of comics’ living masters on his own original title. He’s worked on great female characters like Wonder Woman and Scarlet Witch, but this, a team of female heroes of his own creation, had us swooning.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: It’s a sci-fi adventure story that spans time and space, featuring a team of female heroes that kick butt across the universe. If you like strong female sci-fi characters like Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck, Star Wars’ Princess Leia, and Alien’s Ripley, you’ll find a lot to love about GEORGE PÉREZ’S SIRENS!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez (Wonder Woman, JLA Vs. Avengers) begins his greatest story yet.
Hi - tough parting with this piece- you are viewing a rare HC from Dynamic Forces and DC Comics that I have had in my collection for several years and got directly from the Dynamic Forces website.
This book is unique in that it has been signed by all series creators including the late Dick Giordano, George Perez, Mike DeCarlo, Marv Wolfman and Jerry Ordway. Best of all-the book contains 3 sketchs-one of batman by Mark DeCarlo and a superman by George Perez on the first page which is only in this special edition (of which there were only 65 - this is number 13).
Also - I got to see Mr Perez at a convention down here in Florida some years ago who for a donation did a huge batman head sketch on the first page of the companion book of this edition. A great rare book.
