    George Perez's first-ever custom CGC label

    posted Jul 12, 2015, 3:25 PM by Vu Nguyen

    From cgccomics.com



    Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) and Boom! Studios have teamed up with George Perez to create the first-ever custom art CGC label. Perez hand-sketched Sirens series for a certification label that will be available just in time for encapsulation with Sirens #4, scheduled for release by Boom! Studios on July 8th at Comic Con International — San Diego.

    Given full artistic control of the label, Perez created a stunning design of Sirens ’ seven heroines, who travel across space and time to save the universe. “Not being able to choose among my Sirens children, I opted to draw all seven of them. It was interesting doing so without any reference in front me,” Perez says of the experience.

    Sirens #4 can be purchased at SDCC at the Boom! booth (#2229) and submitted directly to CGC at booth #901. Customers can purchase the Perez label in CGC’s Blue Universal Designation for an additional $5 fee. It is also available in the Yellow Signature Series label, if the book is signed and witnessed. Previous issues of George Perez Sirens are also eligible for encapsulation with the Perez custom label, upon request.

    We’re thrilled to be able to launch this custom label program with an icon of George Perez’s stature and a publisher with the innovative spirit of Boom!” said CGC Director of Operations Harshen Patel. “Right from the start, they shared our excitement about this opportunity to offer something entirely new to comic book collectors.”

    I’m all tuckered out this morning from shovelling the pile left by the snow plow at home so that we could get out of our driveway and go to work and then shovelling out my parking space here at the store, and I still have to work all day. Managing a small business is so much fun. I almost read all the comic books that I wanted to from last week’s new releases. One of these days I’ll manage to do that.

    (excerpt)

    Rat God #1 - Few artists find success writing their own comics. Take George Perez's Sirens as an example. The first issue was so over written that only a few fans bought the second issue. Here we have Richard Corben using his signature style to tell a tale involving an old Haida mythological creature. This issue was kind of confusing but I loved the art and the sparse narrative made it enjoyable at least. I will definitely read the next issue.

    Boom To Take Another Scalp From DC Comics Next Week
    Posted on November 27, 2014 by Rich Johnston

    Boom have made quite a few headlines over the last couple of years recruiting both experienced, high level talent like George Pérez, Brian Stelfreeze, JG Jones and Grant Morrison alongside hot, up-and-coming creators who might normally gravitate to Image with their original projects like James Tynion IV, Justin Jordan, Frank Barbiere, Cullen Bunn and Marguerite Bennett.

    We’re still waiting to find out exactly what Jones and Morrison have brought to Boom, but it’s come to my attention that next week Boom is planning another high profile creator reveal.

    While I don’t have a name yet, I’ve heard it’s someone working on one of DC’s top-selling titles… and the creator has never worked with Boom before.

    Wizard World
    Sunday at a major city comic convention is usually a “crowd hangover day”, with things usually moving a little slower after the busy Saturday and that was also the case at Wizard World Chicago …

    Vu and John is back with some comic book talks.

    Topics:

  • First memorable Superhero movie experiences: Superman (1978) and Batman (1989).
  • Wizard World Chicago 2014
  • New Gotham Television show - season premieres September 22nd.
  • Stan Lee and Jack Kirby
  • Song of the show is R.E.M.'s "Superman"

  • NOTE: The other big Chicago Comic Book Convention is called C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo). The Expo will be back around April 2015.

    BONUS: Vu thinks it's a bad idea for too many variant covers, for example, there are now 14 Variant Covers for George Perez's Sirens #1 (Boom! Studios).

    Okay, the wait is almost over. After a pretty long spell of preparation, challenges and long blissful work hours, my new book SIRENS will be making its debut in a special variant edition this weekend at the Baltimore Comic Con. The con organizer, Marc Nathan, was the gentleman who set me up with BOOM!, so this seemed like the perfect way to thank him.

    To celebrate the book’s official mass release on September 17th, I am going on my first-ever national signing tour. Six stores and two conventions in two weeks! And all but one stop will include an exclusive variant cover! Here is my schedule (some of the signing times could be extended if attendance warrants):

Other models that will appear in upcoming issues may attend, but nothing's confirmed yet.

This will likely be the largest gathering of cast members for the tour and a fitting finish to what promises to be a very exciting—and exhausting— experience.

    See you all soon!

    George Pérez Embarks on First Nationwide Signing Tour for Sirens
    September 2, 2014 

    Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce that comics’ legend George Pérez will be embarking on his first nationwide signing tour to promote his new original series, George Pérez’s Sirens. Pérez will be visiting six different comic shops and three conventions in seven states across the country to meet fans and sign copies of his first original comic book series in over a decade. Appearing alongside the luminary creator at several of the events will be the real-life friends and fans who inspired the Sirens themselves.

    As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue bi-monthly miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez (Wonder Woman, JLA Vs. Avengers) begins his greatest story yet.

    “This is gonna be so much fun,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “George has never gone on a signing tour before, so this a really unique opportunity for his fan base. Spanning the course of two full weeks, George will be visiting numerous comic shops and conventions, meeting fans from all over the country, and introducing them to his newest work, Sirens. A huge thanks goes out to all the retailers and convention organizers that made this possible. And of course, the biggest thanks of all goes out to George for agreeing to pack up and travel all over the U.S.!”

    George Pérez will appear at the following locations and dates:

    • September 5-7, Baltimore Comic-Con, Baltimore, Md.
    • September 17, 6-8pm, Collector’s Paradise, Winnetka, Calif.
    • September 18,  6-8pm, Keith’s Comics, Dallas, Texas
    • September 19-21, Cincinnati Comic Expo, Cincinnati, Ohio
    • September 22, 6-8pm, Larry’s Comics, Lowell, Mass.
    • September 25, 11am-1pm, Third Eye Comics, Annapolis, Md.
    • September 27-28Steel City Con, Pittsburgh, Pa. (Vu: please note that they are referring to PITTSBURGH COMICON 2014)
    • September 30, 5-7pm, Tate’s Comics, Lauderhill, Fla.
    • October 1, 4-6pm, Coliseum of Comics, Sanford, Fla.

    This September, the iconic writer/artist George Pérez eschews the worlds of Marvel and DC to create his own heroes, villains, and epics in the new series, George Pérez’ Sirens. Taking his passion for storytelling and creation as seen in everything from New Teen Titans to Wonder Woman to the Justice League and the Avengers and blending it with his own love of action, diverse eras and female characters, Sirens follows a titular team of disgraced female heroes who are called back in action to save the same people who turned against them. 

    Culled from various eras and locales in world history, the heroines of Sirens strike upon Pérez’ diverse love of fiction and also a little support from friends and family – the writer/artist is basing virtually all of the characters in Sirens after people he knows, including his wife Carol. Unlike other projects of Pérez’ in recent memory, Sirens strikes home as it’s the beginning of a new era outside of Marvel and DC and on his own creations.

    Newsarama: George, what excites you about doing Sirens?

    George Pérez: Well, the chance to write and illustrate my own stories is definitely a big plus, but I think the greatest thrill for me is using so many of my friends, fans and even family members as cast members. This makes it more of an artistic challenge for me and the idea that is causing so much personal excitement for so many others is a real thrill. I tried it once with the unfortunately short-lived Crimson Plague PLAGUE in the late 90s, but that was a book I was financing myself. This time BOOM! is handling all the marketing and promotion stuff. I can just sit down and be as creative as my imagination and ability will allow.

    An Addendum to the She-Devils Casting Call

    SHE-DEVILS #1 (2014)
    Boom! Studios
    AN ADDENDUM TO MY CASTING CALL

    I've been getting a wonderfully large number of volunteers and so many have already sent your photos, and for that I am grateful. There are a few specific types I'm still looking for, though and, while I can just simply create the faces, I'd still like to get a chance to use as many live models as I can, even for parts that may not be all that glamorous or even likable.

    Now, at the risk of spoiling the story for anyone--although these requests will no doubt elicit more confusion than clarification--I currently have need of a couple of Japanese Samurais, young Japanese geishas.

    I'm also looking for an African-American woman over 30 for a small part similar to the role Viola Davis played in THE HELP. I'm also looking for a black male to be in a one or two panel scene with her.

    These last two roles may be the toughest roles to fill due to the sensitive nature. I can understand a modern black woman being adverse to portraying a maid and for a black man to be portrayed in a similar function. However, the roles are not going to be negative or condescending portrayals--just going for some historical context in the storyline which has a scene in the 50s era South..

    Of course, some of you are being cast in rather unsavory roles-- many at your own request, so maybe I'm being a little over-cautious in the name of political correctness, but I just needed to make myself clear that all this is being done for entertainment and the desire to involve my fans in some of that enjoyment, if they want to. The parts mentioned are little more than cameos and could easily be filled by fictional faces, but I will leave that totally up to all of you. No offense meant and none will be taken.

    As with all the other casting, the deadline for photos is January 31st, by which time I will have to use whomever I have in my list for the first SHE-DEVILS story arc. Thanks for your attention, consideration and understanding

     

     

    Casting Call for George Perez's She-Devils

    SHE-DEVILS #1 (2014)
    Boom! Studios
    WHO WANTS TO BE A COMIC BOOK CHARACTER?
    CASTING CALL FOR GEORGE PEREZ’S SHE-DEVILS!

    Hey there, everybody! As many of you know I am currently working on a creator-owned series for BOOM! Studios called SHE-DEVILS. After many months of setbacks due to my medical issues and the time it took to develop the first story arc, I am finally ready to begin penciling.

    As some of you may also know, as in my previous short-lived creator-owned project CRIMSON PLAGUE, my desire is to populate this series with as many friends and fans as the story will allow. While I have already cast my lead characters and several other parts, there is still a need for many more roles to be filled and, thus, this open “casting call”.

    I am looking for characters, male and female, of all shapes, sizes, ethnicity and age. Some parts will be fairly significant; others will be little more than cameos. Some may have their real names used (if agreeable); others may be playing characters that by plot necessity will have fictional names. Most will be portraying humans; some may be the basic models for aliens. Some will be heroic; some will be among the vilest of villains. Some will live; some won’t be so lucky.

    And, of course, everyone will be drawn by me. It’s my way of letting my fans in on the fun, and I am particularly hopeful that this will inspire the cosplayers among you to dress up as your character at upcoming conventions. The idea of a big photo shoot with as many live SHE-DEVILS characters gathered together really excites me and watching fans and friends being asked to autograph copies of the books they appear in is my way of sharing a bit of the celebrity spotlight that I’ve been privileged to enjoy for four decades.

    So, for those of you who may be interested, and even for those whom I have already approached, here’s what I will need from each of you.

    Photos. Plenty, plenty of photos. Especially headshots, like animation character sheets, wherein you provide as many expressions, moods and angles as you can manage. Face forward, profile, three-quarter shots, looking left, right, up and down, even looking to the rear. Happy, sad, angry, worried, confused, surprised, playful, passive, assertive. Smiling, frowning, sneering, screaming, gritted teeth, pursed lips, whistling, grimacing. I think you get the idea. Every emotional and dramatic expression you can think of.

    I know this may be asking a lot, but I really do want to have as big a library as possible so that every drawing of each respective character bears at least some resemblance to the model An acceptable alternative would be video for those who have done some action stuff in that format. And for those who have their own websites with suitable photos, a link would also be perfectly acceptable.

    Now, please understand that, however many responses I get, there is no guarantee that I will be able to use everyone, or even a majority of those who wish to be part of this. However, if the first story arc is successful, I will need characters for a follow-up, so don’t fret that you’ll be totally left out.

    Also, this is not a paying gig. The only compensation for any of you is the hopeful thrill of seeing yourself as part of a comic book drawn with as much tender loving care as I can manage.

    So, if any of this does interest you, please send links to photos, vidcaps, videos or websites to my email at gpzpacesetter[a]mac.com.

    For those who wish to send photos or videos by regular mail, please contact me by e-mail requesting my mailing address (I may open a PO Box specifically for this). You can also send me messages through my Facebook pages but please understand that sometimes messages get lost among the many others I receive here.

    So, that’s my spiel. To coin an old, but now appropriate, phrase, see you in the funny papers!

    Okay! It's now official!

    The title of my new series for BOOM! Studios is SHE-DEVILS (taking the title from a one-shot fan comic I did just as I was turning pro in 1974.) This is the first promo art spotlighting the nine lead characters. Just as I did with CRIMSON PLAGUE years ago, I'm using real people as my models and inspiration.

    Beyond the characters shown here, I've already enlisted a good number of friends, fans and members of my extended family to appear as characters in this series and will likely be needing to ask for more, especially those in the cosplay community. I'm imagining a big SHE-DEVILS photo shoot some time in the future with everybody playing his or her own comic book alter ego!

    Pictured here are:
    Top Row: Bombshell (Meg Taylor), Ammo (Camille Elizabeth Bishop) Barrage (Miracole Burns)
    Center Row, Agony (April Hunter) Highness (Margie Vizcarra Cox),Figurine (Chan Graves), Kaje (Akira Lane)
    Bottom center: Fanisha (Phoenicia Flynn), Backround Interface (Sherita Dunbar)

    I am definitely in the market for more cast members, so if you're interested and I haven't spoken to yet (or even if I did), please feel free to send me a private message. Please note that, while I would love to use everyone who wants to be in this series, there's no way I can fit everyone, so please don't take it personally if I don't use you.

    This should be FUN!!
