PREVIEWSworld Video Game Month: Marv Wolfman

Sep 18, 2018

Video games have often been considered the “enemy” of comics, drawing readers away from comics for the glow of arcade and home screens. But somewhere along the way, video games became fodder for the comics, drawing gamers away from their screens and back to the four-color page!

Years later, they’re seemingly inseparable now, with dozens of video game-based comics on the market.

BETTY PAGE (2001)
art by George Pérez

from Kevin D
Back in 2001, George Perez was kind enough to do a sketch of someone he said he'd not done before then. I asked him to sketch Bettie Page. As he was sketching, I could tell he was enjoying drawing something different. Every so often, he would quietly say, "I like this." Then again, "I like this." It was fun watching him work and enjoying himself.

Here's a picture of us with his finished work.
