    • The story behind the Rich Buckler/George Perez 2014 Team-Up D D writes: ALBUQUERQUE COMIC CON 2014 (11-12 Jan 2014) Albuquerque, New Mexico Sad day yesterday (20-May-2017). We lost a legendary comic artist. When I had an opportunity to meet Rich Buckler for the first time at the 2014 ACC, I knew I had to get a commission from him. So I contacted him prior to the show, and arranged 2 commissions. One was the penciled Joker which I have already posted in my Joker gallery, and the second was this one. The concept for this commission was that, George Perez (one of my all-time favorite artists) was going to be in attendance at the 2014 ACC also. I knew that George was mentored by Rich ...

    (excerpt)

    BATMAN: YEAR THREE: I didn't expect to see this storyline on this particular list. While it's certainly an essential Robin storyline, it's about the original Robin, Dick Grayson, and Tim Drake has next to nothing to do with it. Written by Marv Wolfman, the story featured Grayson returning to Gotham to face an increasingly obsessed and dark Dark Knight, while his origin is retold, rounding out the "Year" trilogy of Batman's early years. The art is courtesy of Pat Broderick and John Beatty, with George Perez handling the covers. It was never collected, but ran from Batman #436-#439. I wonder if they actually meant to suggest Batman: A Lonely Place of Dying, which was collected into a trade (though it's since gone out of print) and which dealt with the origin of Tim Drake.

    The first time I met Mr Perez was at one of the very early Heroes Conventions... just after he had worked on the Titans/Batman crossover for the "Year 3" storyline. I had bought the Perez portfolio and brought that for him to sign.

    So I'd agree Batman is something good to see him work on at DC. I remember some Flash covers also that he did way back, and seeing him on Flash wouldn't hurt my feelings either!

    While he is my all-time favorite artist, and I've enjoyed everything he has been associated with... I think the "defining" Perez for me was his work on revamping Wonder Woman, perhaps because he got to show off not only his knack for detailed art but his writing as well + I am a sucker for mythology.

    COMICS 101: BATMAN, PART 4: HEROES AND VILLAINS
    December 17, 2003
    By Scott Tipton

    (excerpt)

    In “A Lonely Place of Dying,” a 5-issue story by Marv Wolfman, George Perez and Jim Aparo that saw print in the pages of BATMAN and NEW TITANS, readers saw Dick Grayson attempt to intervene and make his former mentor realize he needs help. Meanwhile, both Bruce and Dick were surprised by the appearance of teenager Timothy Drake, who stuns the two with the announcement that he’s deduced their secret identities as Batman and Robin. Tim, it turns out, was a child of three or four when he saw the Flying Graysons’ trapeze act at the circus, and saw young acrobat Dick Grayson perform an amazing triple somersault, an image that was burned into his memory. When, years later, he saw news footage of Robin executing the same maneuver, he put two and two together and realized that Robin was the ex-circus performer Grayson. When a little research revealed that Grayson had been adopted by billionaire Bruce Wayne, whose own parents were murder victims, everything fit. After the disappearance from the public eye of the second Robin, Tim had also noticed the increasingly erratic Batman, and decided to intervene as well.


     
    COMICS 101: BATMAN PART III -- THE FRIENDLIEST LONER IN TOWN
    December 10, 2003
    By Scott Tipton

    In addition, a new sidekick for Batman had been introduced in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS, a young boy named Jason Todd, whose parents had been killed in a manner strikingly similar to Dick Grayson’s. Accordingly, writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez, in the pages of their top-selling series THE NEW TEEN TITANS, got permission to have Grayson retire his Robin uniform, and not long after introduced Dick Grayson’s new costumed identity – Nightwing.

    The name was taken from an obscure Superman character (when Superman and Jimmy Olsen would shrink down and visit the bottled Kryptonian city of Kandor, occasionally circumstances would compel them to take on their own superhero identities: Nightwing and Flamebird), and Grayson attributed the identity as a tribute to his two greatest inspirations: Superman and Batman. Although the costume was a little rough at first, (particularly a gigantic disco collar that made Lex Luthor’s purple ‘70s number look subtle in comparison) the Nightwing identity was an unquestionable success, leading to a long run in TITANS, several miniseries, and eventually a successful solo series of his own, originated by writer Chuck Dixon and artist Scott McDaniel. The Nightwing identity has even made its way into the mainstream media, having been heavily featured and merchandised in THE NEW BATMAN ADVENTURES, the second series of the successful and critically acclaimed Batman cartoons by the award-winning Dini/Timm/Burnett production team.
