JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #192 (Jul 1981)
DC Comics
George Perez Justice League of America #192 Cover Original Art (DC, 1981).

This cover spotlights the "Quest for Genesis" story that begins the true (and secret) origin of the Silver Age Red Tornado. This was an early DC cover for Perez, who was already a fan-favorite from his time on Marvel's Avengers. His first DC work was on a Firestorm story less than a year previous to this in Flash #289. Red Tornado (II) was an android from Earth-2 who came to Earth-1 and joined the JLA. Featuring almost all of the JLA heavy hitters... Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, Aquaman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Firestorm, this cover is power-packed! Created in ink and white paint over graphite on DC Sparta Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The logo, DC bullet, header info, UPC box, and cover blurbs are all stat paste-ups. Signed in the original art by Perez just under the chair (it looks like the chair's shadow), and again in the lower margin. Most of the paste-ups are discolored and there is a bit of glue residue on the Flash's arm. Overall in Very Good condition.

8 Awesome Latinx Marvel Comics Characters

From peopleenespanol.com


DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU #22 (Mar 1976)
Curtis

Excerpt:

1) Hector Ayala (White Tiger; El Tigre Blanco), 1975


The first superhero of Latinx descent in Marvel’s history, Hector Ayala (aka White Tiger), appeared in the mid-’70s in Deadly Hands of Kungfu issue #19. Created by George Perez and Bill Mantlo, Ayala was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and attended Empire State University in New York (where Peter Parker went!). As a student, he discovered the tiger amulets thrown out by the Sons of the Tigers, who were three martial arts students. His strength increased and he gained superhuman fighting skills when he wore all three amulets at the same time. As a superhero, Ayala fought alongside Spider-Man and Daredevil. Although he was eventually killed off, members of his family assumed the role of the next White Tiger.

Interview with LaMonica Garrett on Entertainment Weekly

From ew.com

Excerpt:

“I knew the significance and his place in DC mythology, and I know what his name does when fans hear it,” Garrett, a comics fan himself, tells EW. “When you say, ‘the Monitor is in this crossover,’ people’s ears perk up because they automatically think of the Anti-Monitor [and] Psycho-Pirate.”

From comics.ha.com

Superman Reimagined Illustration Original Art (1985).

A super-fan named Mike started a sketch collection of artists' takes on a completely re-designed Superman. This Pérez version is more Cosmic than DC's standard "Last Son of Krypton", and we kind of like it! Pure graphite on oversized Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 16". The image area has toned from being sunstruck in a previous frame/mat. There are finger smudges in the side margins. Signed and dated 3-18-85 in the image area. In Very Good condition.

HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE #1 (1986)
DC Comics
George Perez History of the DC Universe #1 Page 2 Harbinger Painted Original Art (DC, 1986). After Marv Wolfman and George Perez created the game-changing Crisis on Infinite Earths 12-page maxi-series, DC decided to produce a history of their new retrofitted universe. They again used writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez. From the first issue of this 2-issue tome, we have a page of Perez' own pencils, which he has very skillfully painted in gouache after the book was published. (Published color work was by Tom Ziuko.) This page features Harbinger and the image area on the Bristol board measures 11.75" x 17.75". Signed by Perez in the lower blank area of the image. In Excellent condition.

New chapters of Shonen Jump will be free

I didn't realize how much piracy has hurt the manga publishers. To stay competitive, VIZ Media's Hisashi SASAKI has announced that new chapters of Shonen Jump will be give out for free (starting Dec 17). They would rather people get it directly from the source.

Personally speaking, I am a paid annual subscriber. I got in for only $20 a year, which is more than a fair price (you also get two Yu-Gi-Oh! mailed to you). Now, if you decide to support them, you gain access to "almost everything" that Viz published as Shonen Jump.
