Hello there, I am a long time fan of Mr. Perez. Can you please let me know what comic shows he will be at in 2016. I understand that he does not do commissions any more, and I would like, if possible, get a convention sketch from him. Thank you for your time.

Hi George, any plans for coming to Brazil? Regards from a huge fan!
Jess and Fernando, as far as I know, George has not published his 2016 Convention appearances (his last 2015 appearance will be at NORTHEAST COMIC CON (05-06 Dec 2015) Wilmington, Massachusetts) and there are no Brazil appearance at the moment.Regarding convention sketch policy, here is what George wrote:
George Pérez’s Convention Policy
When the convention floor opens up for those with general admission tickets, I start handing out about a hundred numbered tickets to the arriving fans so they don’t have to get on what may already be a long line. Fans already at the end of the line (behind the tenth person) also have the option of taking a ticket and leaving the line to return later. The first digit of the ticket indicates what convention day it is. For a three-day show, the first day’s tickets would be numbered 100 -199, the second day’s 200-299, and so on.
The ticket basically reserves your place in line once I’ve finished with the early crowd. If, say, a fan returns from enjoying the show with ticket number 110 and I’m already serving ticket 125, the returning fan with the lowest number is always next. Therefore, a fan with a higher ticket number like 155 would never be any worse off time wise than if he or she had waited on line for 54 other fans to be serviced first.
The reason I use this system is because I personally can’t see spending money to come to a show just to stand in line for what could be hours. This way, it’s the fan’s choice whether to wait on line or not.
There is no charge for the ticket and it entitles you to a sketch (limit one per ticket) autographs (I set no limit to the number of things I’ll sign, but do request that fans be considerate of each other) and a photo op.
Sketches are quick headshots for $40 and can be drawn on any surface you prefer. I will provide my own drawing paper for those who don’t have their own. There is no charge for autographs and photos. Only one ticket per person, but you can get tickets for family members as long as they are there to use them.
Once you’ve used your ticket, you can get another ticket, if any are still available, and come back later to be served again. You can’t use a previous day’s ticket on a following day since that would be unfair to those who may only have one-day passes that following day.
REVISED: On each day, if I finish with all the numbered tickets, I will then serve any arriving fans on a first come, first served basis. HOWEVER, there is no guarantee that I will be able to get to anyone on the non-tickets line, so please don’t start lining up until two hours before closing time. It defeats the purpose of the ticket system if fans line up for hours at a time with no guarantee that I will be able to get to them. It frustrates the fan and makes me feel guilty for something I have no control over. I may also have to limit my service to autographs and photos if it looks like I won't be able to draw any sketches and still be able to take care of as many people on the non-ticket line as possible.
Unless there is an unavoidable call of nature, I will remain at my table until the end of each convention day.
I hope this helps everyone understand how I work and that it helps you all enjoy the convention experience better.Thank you.

I was wondering if you had any additional information, aside from the standard sales listing, for IDW's Marvel Artist Select Edition covering Perez's Avengers books. I'm on the fence with ordering and would like to know what's inside it, but I can't find any information. The site I order from has an order cutoff off 11/25 so I've only a few more days to make a decision. Just thought there may have been something out there that you may have seen. Appreciate your time - and your page.

She’s managed to escape her past, her enemies and even the depths of Hell (literally), but nothing will prepare Patsy Walker for the hard knock life of job hunting in New York City. Being Hellcat is hard enough – why does being Patsy Walker have to be so hard too? Not to mention everyone’s going crazy for the reissue of the old romance comics that her mom wrote about Patsy’s actual teenage years. Getting recognized left and right is starting to cause trouble in both her personal and super hero life. But hey, nothing keeps Patsy down. She loves life, no matter what curveballs it throws at her.
Variant Covers by Sophie Campbell, George Perez, and Marguerite Sauvage; Hip-Hop Variant by Javier Pulido; Action Figure variant by John Tyler Christopher.

Is This Why Uncanny X-Men #600 Reprints Bizarre Adventures #27 From 1981?
Posted November 3, 2015 by Rich Johnston
Tomorrow sees the release of Uncanny X-Men #600. Finally,
As well as the main story by Brian Bendis, Sara Pichelli, Mahmud Asrar, Stuart Immonen, Kris Anka, Chris Bachalo, David Marquez and Frazer Irving, we get a reprint of the Iceman story from Bizarre Adventures #27 by Mary Jo Duffy, George Perez and Alfredo Alcala in its original black and white.
Much has been made about a conversation that happens in this issue between Iceman’s older and younger selves regarding his sexuality. The younger Iceman has come out, the older Iceman has not.
