Trevco Sportsware
DC Crisis Variant Sublimated T-Shirt

$39.99 (Various sizes)

The 100% polyester DC Crisis Variant Sublimated T-Shirt should evoke rather fond memories for you. A time when DC Comics had like a billion different contradictory plot-lines and characters from different dimensions that are slightly different but not quite. 'Hey, this guy spells his name with a lower case 'l'! Weird!' sorta thing, ya know? The DC Crisis Variant Sublimated T-Shirt is printed right up to the edge and completely around and has the likes of (a) Superman, Firestorm, GeoForce, Obsidian, Ultraman(the evil Superman), and many others from the collapsing universes. Superboy Ret-Con punch gooooooooooooooooo!


Each t-shirt is printed with a belt technique, which causes minor imperfections but make each one wholly unique!

George Perez's Sirens Interviews

GEORGE PEREZ'S SIRENS #1 (Cover A) (2014)
Boom! Studios
(excerpt)

With the advent of digital printing and drawing, he’s now able to pack as much detail into his pages as possible, without losing it all to inferior reproduction. And don’t forget, due to ongoing medical issues related to his vision, we’re talking about someone who is technically visually impaired.

“I’m very proud of the fact that people who have seen the first issue can’t believe it’s been drawn by a visually impaired man. I take great pride in that but that’s because I’ve added digital drawing to my arsenal of weaponry. I had to find another way of being able to still do George Perez style work even though George Perez’s body is rebelling against him at every turn.”



Fanboy Comics Interviews George Perez on ‘Sirens’ (Part 1)

Q: How did SIRENS come about?

GEORGE PEREZ:
Well, it was one of those things that was almost on the fly.They [BOOM!] asked if I had any ideas, and I really wanted to do a series that was female-centric and do basically a George Pérez book for everything that George Pérez is known for: team books, as many different locales as I could come up with, and female characters -- most have very fond memories of my doing Wonder Woman plus the female characters on the [Teen] Titans. And, of course, I was also inspired a bit by Doctor Who for all of the time travel stuff. Basically, I wanted to treat it as the George Pérez series to end all George Pérez series, and I want to put everything in. By doing time travel, I was able to do as many genres in one book as I could do. Westerns, there's a section in Feudal Japan, there's obviously stuff in the far, far future. Basically, anything that would challenge me as an artist. I wanted George Pérez, the artist, to curse George Pérez, the writer, as many times as possible! Whenever I work with a writer, if I curse his name while reading the plot, I know I'll be a better artist when I finish the book. It challenges me, that's why I'm trying to do it myself.

Vu's first impression of Sirens #1

GEORGE PEREZ'S SIRENS #1 (Cover A) (2014)
Boom! Studios
Like many of you, I went out to the local comic book store to get the first issue of SIRENS.  Yes, just the one cover. I would have been tempted to pay the extra cash to get one of the incentive covers or the alternate cover, but this is the only version they carried.

As much as I love George Perez's work, the first issue is very dense, in terms of both story (dialogue) and artwork.  It was very hard to get through.

For the first issue, it took place in several different location (and at different time period).... and the first issue is just basically a setup issue. Nothing really happens, only that nine (or eleven?) women comes together at the end to meet their nemesis.

I got the impression that all the characters are from different time period and different locations, because George wanted to draw them.  I love the west and wouldn't have minded spending a few more pages in that period.

I'm not entirely sure how it's all going to fit in six issues, but given George's track record, you may have to wait over a year to get the answer.  By that time, the collected hardbound oversized leather edition in ten different variant covers will already be out from Boom Studios... and knowing me, I would buy it all over again.

George Perez's Sirens #1 is available in comic shops (and digital) now.

MStars: How did the concept come about?

George Pérez: It was on the fly. When I was coming over to BOOM!, they asked if I had any ideas; so I was making it up as I went along. I really wanted to do a series, which was female centric. I tried to do basically a "George Pérez series" that had everything '"George Pérez" was known for. That included teen books, locales that I could come up with, and female characters, which brought up fond memories of Wonder Woman and the Titans. 

Of course, I was inspired a bit by Doctor Who and all the time-travel stuff. I utilized that as well. I wanted to put everything in it. By doing time-travel, I was able to put many genres into one book. Westerns, feudal Japan, and anything that could challenge me as an artist. I wanted "George Pérez The Artist" cursing "George Pérez The Writer" as many times as possible. [Laughs]

UPDATE on my Winnetka book signing tonight: I just received a text from my dear friend (and the model for the Siren Kage) Akira Lane who, unfortunately, woke up this morning with an eye infection and total loss of her voice. Not wanting to chance getting anyone else sick, she's had to bow out of the book signing tonight. While I will miss her terribly, all I want is for her to get better as soon as possible. I love you, my beautiful Gemini Twin ! (Akira and I share the same birthday )

Perez's future Missouri appearances?

Hello,

I was wondering if Mr. Perez will be doing any comic shows around Missouri in the near future? If not is there any way I could mail him a couple of items to get signed. I would love to get a picture of him with the items. I would be more then happy to pay for this to happen. I have recently became a huge fan and even went out and bought his 30th Anniversary Avengers Poster. I would love to get this center piece signed to display in my home. Thank you for the info.

George Pérez sounds the 'Sirens' with new series
 Brian Truitt, USA TODAY 11:29 a.m. EDT September 14, 2014

More than 40 years of writing and drawing comic books has won George Pérez a slew of fans and countless compliments.

One of the greatest came when he was doing Wonder Woman, which he worked on for five years beginning in 1987. He met a female reader new to comics who enjoyed a recent story of his but expressed surprise that it had actually been written by a man.

Back then, he only had one wondrous woman to focus on — now he has nine.

Pérez's Sirens, a new six-issue Boom! Studios series launching Wednesday, marks his first original comic in more than a decade. It also has all the Pérez hallmarks: big-time adventure, an epic cosmic landscape and a group of great female characters.
