From Kevin M
In the past I know that you've posted some of the homages that I've
commissioned based on George's work. I've gotten a few news ones over
the last few months.
The first is based on an old Wizard cover that George did but with different versions of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America:
I also got this one which comes from an issue of Brave and the Bold George did:
and I just got this one, based on George's old JLA covers:

WIZARD #188 (Jun 2007)
Blue Beetle, Lobo, Batman, Adam Strange,
Supergirl and Green Lantern may seem like an odd set of playmates, but
this summer, they're all on their way to Mark Waid's sandbox, The Brave and the Bold,
the new ongoing DC series that launched in February and continues to
roll through the summer. In his own team-up with legendary artist
George Perez (JLA/Avengers), Waid plans to change the classic series for a new generation of fans with a transformed format.
"Unlike the old series, we're a lot less
structurally regimented," Waid revealed. "You get to see unbilled
guest-stars galore do their thing as they pop up unexpectedly. Wait for
a surprise appearance at arc's end this summer by a long-unseen
fan-favorite DC group."
While Waid, a noted continutiy guru of all things DC, won't tell Wizard who teh mystery guests are, we did get him to share some of his all-time favorite The Brave and the Bold stories from years past.
5. BATMAN AND SUPERBOY (Brave and the Bold #192)
"This issue is just jaw-droppingly poignant," noted Waid. "It was
absolutely the first time any writer underscored the profound
difference between inexperienced Superboy and experienced Superman."
4. BATMAN AND SGT ROCK (Brave and the Bold #124)
"It's one of the strangest DC Comics of all time. The villains
decide the best way to defeat Batman and Sgt. Rock is to force artist
Jim Aparo to alter the story to progress to their advantage. Re-reading
it was a great primer for working with Grant Morrison, to whom that
sort of thing happens five times a week and is no big deal."
3. BATMAN AND BLACK CANARY (Brave and the Bold #91)
"It is one of the very best-drawn comics of all time. It was drawn
by Nick Cardy, who was at the absolute peak of his form here. At
conventions I'll buy up copies and hand them to my artist friends just
to watch their jaws drop.
2. ATOM AND FLASH (Brave and the Bold #52)
"It doesn't have a particularly memorable plot, but is one of the
very best-drawn comics of all time, period. This issue is by Alex Toth,
one of the finest comics artist who ever lived but drew only one Brave and the Bold."
1. BATMAN AND HAWK & DOVE (Brave and the Bold #181)
"Top of their list would have to be any of the Alan
Brennert-scripted issues of the early 1980s. But my favorite is issue
##181. It's a story about two former teenage heroes who've grown up and
have to deal with a world that's not the 1960s anymore."
From George Perez: Convention Status

From George Pérez
The Pittsburgh Comic-Con will be the last
national convention and public appearance that I plan to be doing until
2009. (I say "national" because I will be attending a comics festival
in Aviles, Spain in September, making up for a cancellation by me in 2004
due to my psoriasis.) I've had several requests for guest appearances
in the last few days and will likely receive more so I figure I should
give this official notice which should, hopefully, save some organizers
some money on phone calls.

JORNADAS DE CÓMIC DE AVILÉS 2007 - Aviles, Spain (Sep 2007)
Of course, I should now explain why I've made this somewhat unusual decision.
A huge part of it is my commitment to drawing a monthly title again.
I've just started the third issue of THE BRAVE & THE BOLD
and want to continue keeping the book on time. As everyone knows, I put
a lot of work into a page and I don't want to compromise the quality of
the work by breaking my momentum too often. And, let's face it, I'm
just not as fast as I was in my youth.
I also want to devout the
bulk of my free time to my wife, Carol, and her personal and
professional pursuits, which sometimes require a bit of traveling. I
don't want Carol to feel that she always has to be squeezed into a
crowded schedule of convention appearances. After so many years working
her life around my sometime crazy schedule and having to endure many
weekends apart she's pretty much due some time wherein I happily play
her groupie and camp follower. Hey, we've been married over a quarter
of a century and it still aches when we're apart.
Anyway, I hope everyone
understands my decision and I just want to add that I'm so incredibly
flattered by the attention so many convention organizers and comic shop
managers have given me throughout my career. It's just for a short
while and I will miss seeing the fans during that time, but I hope to
make up for that when
2009 comes along.
I should also mention
that this decision isn't absolute. If I'm offered an opportunity to
attend a show in an area that my wife would like to visit, then
negotiations are possible. But, unless my Carol is traveling beside me,
I will be pretty much hunched over my drawing board doing what I love
to do and have been allowed to do for over three decades-- create
Thanks for listening.

09-09-2006, 05:40 PM by MattBrady
Though the fire alarm played havoc with
the schedule of the panel just prior, the DC Nation panel at the
Baltimore Comic-Con began without a hitch at noon on Saturday, with DCU
Executive Editor Dan Didio opening the panel with "It's the special
fire drill version of DC Nation."
Q: Will Brave and Bold be all Batman team-ups?
Waid: There have been 15 heroes and 15 villains so far in the
issues he’s written, giving a sample – issue #1: Batman & Green
Lantern; #2: Supergirl, Green Lantern, Batman, Blue Beetle; #3: – all
of those plus Adam Strange and Lobo.
Q: Will we see Green Arrow team up with Batman?
Waid: Statistically, it’s got to happen.
