Buy One Get Four Free Disney Infinity Figures

From Vu

This has nothing to do with George Perez, but I thought some of you could benefit from this recent deal / sale.  Disney stopped producing figures for their game Disney Infinity since 2016, and as a result these figures went on clearance.  I don't own the game, but if the price is right, I'll throw a few dollars for a figure.

This is probably the best deal I've seen: Toys R Us is doing a "Buy 1 Get 4 Free" sale (ends today June 24th).  It is all across all of Disney's Infinity Figures, including Star Wars and Disney characters.  It works out to be about $3 each. I'm sure they'll continue the sale or even do deeper discounts if they decide to dedicate some sales floor to the figures.

Below are some figures I bought on various discounts.


If you're collecting, these are the figures they produced (note Marvel characters were not included on the first game).

SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2003 (17-20 Jul 2003)

I was incredibly fortunate to share a dinner table with Mr. Pérez during Comic Con San Diego (2003) while I was assisting the sculptor Barsom. I will NEVER forget his kindness and humor as he described his meet and greet at the restaurant where servers are mean and people throw things (when he and I were relating how LOUD the San Diego public spaces can be). I hope to some day take him up on his offer to model for him (me, an honorably discharged vet raising charitable funds for others via THE George Pérez= super wow!). He has the biggest heart and it's lovely to see he's so admired.

Thank you for the memories and the opportunity to share them here! If I can EVER be of assistance to Mr. Pérez, even if it was just gathering garbage at the end of a show, lol, I would jump at it in a heartbeat!

Peace, Hugs, and Imagination, Kimber

INCREDIBLE HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT TP (1992)
Marvel Comics
First, I want to say that I heard about your recent heart attack, and I hope & pray for a speedy recovery.

I am fan of your work, especially your artwork that you did for the Peter David story, Hulk: Future Imperfect. I love your designs in that book including the way the Maestro was drawn. Still one of my favorites to this day.

The reason I'm reaching out to you is that I'm seeking some design schematics. In the story, Maestro has a gun in his possession that was built by the mutant Forge designed to kill the Hulk. We see it in a couple panels in Future Imperfect and in a later Hulk issue. Would you happen to have any control art with either a front or side view of the weapon. I attached some pictures of the panels, showing off the gun.

I'm looking to get a better look at the design for a custom that I'm working on. If any of those designs/sketches are still available, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

ALL-NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #9 (06 Sep 2017)
Marvel Comics
Syfy Wire is happy to debut these exclusive gifs announcing the Marvel Legacy series. They feature variant covers that pay homage to classic images from Marvel’s glorious four-color history.  The new titles are:

US Avengers (cover artist: Christian Ward), Hawkeye (cover artist: Greg Smallwood), Jessica Jones (cover artist: Daniel Mora), Champions (cover artist: Daniel Mora), Spider-Man vs. Deadpool (cover artist: Giuseppe Camuncoli) and Guardians (cover artist: Ron Lim).  They’re cool and retro and wil be a nice distraction until Marvel drops its big news. We’re particularly fond of the Guardians/Infinity Gauntlet homage, because who doesn’t love seeing Ron Lim getting his cosmic on?

BLONDE VIXEN / HOLLYWOOD (Jeanne Basone)  (1998)
art by George Pérez, colors Tom Smith
Jeanne Basone, a.k.a. Hollywood

In GLOW, Sydelle Noel plays an ex-stuntwoman named Cherry, a loose version of Jeanne Basone’s G.L.O.W. character “Hollywood. After the series, she became a stuntwoman and found steady modeling work around Los Angeles. She also still wrestles.

“I worked for Jagermeister, I was a Bud girl, a Miller Light girl, things you do in your ‘20s,” she tells Inverse about her work post-G.L.O.W. “I posed for Playboy. When you’re in California, there is a lot to do.” Basone also became a stuntwoman for shows like Days of Our Lives, Chuck, In Living Colour, and the film Me, Myself, & Irene.

She also performs private wrestling matches for fans and clients. But don’t use the word private. “I call it one-on-one wrestling because private sounds like sex to me, and that’s not what’s going on,” Basone says. Most are adult fans who grew up on G.L.O.W. and are eager to lock armbars with Hollywood herself. Others find a satisfying release that doesn’t involve sex.

Basone’s primary income is through her studio, Hollywould Productions, in which she dresses up as “Wonder Womyn” and shoots custom movies and sells them on the internet. She’s been doing it since 1997 and, somehow, has been free from DC’s lawyers. She even has the OK from legendary Wonder Woman comics legend George Perez, whom she calls “a dear friend.”

“I made a pretty good living,” she says. “I had no idea in the mid to late ‘90s how much money I was making. It’s a little different now, you’re older, things are different, but I was doing very well.”

George Perez is now accepting commissions

SUPERMAN AND BATMAN (2013)
art by George Perez 
Hello to all!

First of all, I want to once again thank everyone for all the well wishes, prayers, emails, cards and texts and phone calls since news of my recent heart attack hit social media. I am touched, flattered and humbled by all the love and concern.

As most everyone knows, my commitment to recovery has forced me to cancel all my convention appearances and my regular workload has shrunk to nearly zero, by my own choice, since producing deadline driven detailed comics work in my current condition is not really practical or recommended. However, despite all my hopefully temporary limitations, I am still an artist, and I really do need to keep drawing something. So. After doing a few private commissions for some friends, I have decided to offer home commissions to the public again, but in order to keep my stress levels as low as
possible, with some strict guidelines.

Samples are available upon request of what I am offering.

Each commission will be limited to one single character per drawing, usually drawn with Copic markers with added pencil tones on 9 x 12 Bristol board. . I prefer using the pencil tones because detailed ink work is a bit eye wearying right now, especially with my vision treatments still ongoing. No backgrounds will be added unless I choose to add something minimal subject
to my own judgement on the composition.

The price is $700.00 plus shipping, which I know is not cheap, but I will try to make it worth the cost.

Payment in full would be required before the commission will be started.  However, it will be held in escrow so if at any time you wish a full refund ( and your piece has not yet been started ) the money can be refunded to you within 1 business day. Depending on the number of orders, it may take a substantial amount of time and there is no guarantee that I will be able to draw every request I receive.

I can only draw one of these on any day and I need to limit myself to a 5-day week (allowing me time to do whatever professional work I do accept from the kind publishers during the course of the year).

Any interested parties should contact my art agent Spencer Beck of The Artist’s Choice for any further details and for placing a commission request at spencerbck@aol.com 

I do not want to blister my thumbs twiddling, so being able to get back to some drawing, however limited, will definitely be good for my personal, physical and artistic well being.

Thanks and take care,
George Pérez

Titans Casting Breakdowns

posted Jun 22, 2017, 6:35 PM by Vu Nguyen

From Vu


TITANS (Television Show) (2018)
Warner Bros
According to thathashtagshow.com these are the series regular casting call. Note, the characters are code names, but, let's face it, it's got to be Nightwing, Raven, Starfire, and Changeling/Beast Boy.  Interestingly enough, Beast Boy could be Asian in the TV show.  I'm okay with that!

[John Crossland] Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD

[SARAH]
Female, Mid teens, Open Ethnicity. Troubled, bullied, often scared but unwilling to show it, Sarah is a loner more comfortable hiding in her hoodie than making friends. Haunted by a dark force inside her, Sarah experiences violent episodes that she cannot understand or control. She is also plagued by recurring nightmares that lead her across the country in search of help…SERIES REGULAR

[Casey]
Female, 20s, Open ethnicity. Casey is a tall, stunning woman, her beauty so magnificent it’s almost inhuman. Elegant, refined and mysterious, she is on the hunt to discover who is trying to kill her and why. And those after her are in for a surprise because she’s more deadly than anyone they’ve ever encountered…SERIES REGULAR

[JAX]
Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he’s learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking…SERIES REGULAR
