    JLA/AVENGERS: SIGNED BY GEORGE PEREZ KURT BUSIEK AND TOM SMITH (Dynamic Forces) (Jan 2005)
    Dynamic Forces
    When George was in Toronto for the con, he made an appearance on The Shopping Channel (along with Nick Barrucci from Dynamic Forces) to promote the JLA/Avengers Collector's Edition Hardcover. He mentioned that the version being offered would not only have the entire creative team's signature, but would feature a Batman head sketch by him within the Compendium. Sure enough, they had a copy of the Compendium on display, and showed off the Batman sketch that George had done for it. George said each sketch would obviously be a little different, but they would all be of Batman, what with the character being very popular and there being excitement about the upcoming Batman movie starring Christian Bale.

    I'm guessing that the signed and remarked JLA/Avengers HC that's being offered at the Dynamic Forces site is the version with George's Batman sketch. Then again... they still list Perez elsewhere on the DF site as having inked their alternate cover to Avengers Infinity #1, when he did not, so who knows?

    I asked Kurt Busiek about extra pages of art being in the DF JLA/Avengers limited edition hard cover. He said he had no idea or something to that effect. So, is it possible?

    I know from everything thing I'd heard up until it came out, that it was originally supposed to have had a number of extra pages. Unfortunately I haven't received my copy yet, so I don't really know what's included. I did ask Spencer about some art that I heard wasn't included. He said there were legal issues, but that it was originally the plan to include more.

    So if there are extra pages in the DF edition, I know I'd buy it. Does anyone know?

    At the risk of looking crazy for talking to myself, I've noticed in the JLA/A Hardcover "info-chain" on this site that the Previews solicitation didn't mention additional art, but the Dynamic Force solicitation states: "a Perez portfolio of art done to commemorate the project " to be included in an "80-page" (not 64-page) volume 2.

    I guess I got those two solicitations mixed up -- which begs the question: is the "missing art" really in the DF limited edition? Is there anyone who actually bought the DF set that could tell us?


    (Vu: I kind of doubt that the missing artwork will turn up on the DF version. Good luck on trying to contact them...)

    Regarding the JLA/Avengers collection...
    « Thread started on: 08/12/04 at 4:35pm »
    by Brian Morris

    I liked the enlarged format for the artwork it allowed the small items to be seen. But, I was very disappointed with the companion book. Compared to other collected volumes of work put out by DC and Marvel separately in the past this one was lacking. I would have liked to have seen pencils from the series itself, concept drawings, even promo pieces published at full size. I feel that both the editorial teams at Marvel and DC let us down. I am also glad that I did not order the signed edition, for this version was not worth the $75 price tag.

    Vu is there a chance that you can get some input from George as to what the two editorial teams wanted in this collection as opposed to what we received.....

    From Mike Devlin (Melbourne, Australia):
    I bought the Hardcover JLA/Avengers collection thingy yesterday and the one thing that bugged me the MOST (aside from all the missing art - the 2000 JLA/Avengers picture Perez drew for Wizard for Eg) was the fact that not all of the 21 pages of JLA/Avengers from 1983 were scanned from the oginals. What a bummer!

    I've been looking forward to this aspect of the collector's edition the most of all since 2001, or whenever it was suggested they'd be included in such a volume, anyway.

    So can you shed more light on why it *seems* DC didn't try very hard at ALL to collect all the pages to borrow and scan as they should have done (for the price if no other reason) ????

    Do you think DC or Marvel may one day scan *all* the pages again and print them with a consistent quality level?


    (Vu: I don't have the book yet to compare notes, for those interested Amazon.com hasn't billed or shipped the book to me yet (I ordered two copies). I think sometime people forget that, hey, we have the series printed in a big, nice format! The companion piece should be treated as a bonus, it's not going to please everybody, but it's still better than not having anything. I do agree that the price seems high for extras that doesn't seem to have a lot of work put into it, even though the people putting it together will probably disagree. I don't want to speak for DC Comics, but things probably went down to copyright. They would've had to hunt down all the owners of the ACTOR auctions, the Wizard people, the Heroes Convention people, just to get permission to print those artwork in high quality, and it's a lot of work. Not to mention that they seem to be on a tight budget, I don't know. This is an open forum, if you think the price was reasonable or the extras were awesome, please let me know, I feel like I've just been posting negative reactions to this hardcover.)

    Shipping: June, 2004 (Please note that the book will not be available until August 2004, and, realistically, DF will not have the creators signatures/head sketch until September or October.)


    (Vu: I do not recommend buying anything from DF, based on my personal experience.

    First of all, they are very slow on orders. According to their website average orders takes as low as four weeks to six weeks. That's a whole month for them to place an item into a box to mail it to you, that is if they even have the item in stock.

    Second, certain information can be mis-leading. For instance, the re-marked sketches are done by Tom Smith, but they never mention this. Granted, that they do not say the sketches are by George Pérez, but if you try to email or submit your questions, it doesn't get answered.

    Third, customer service is absolutely terrible. In fact, I dare you to call their customer service line, you will never, ever get a real person. Emails do not get responded either. I have emailed them in the past, maybe four times, each time ignored. From a potential customer's standpoint, this is very bad.

    So, take my advice, do not order anything from these guys. Terrible, terrible service. There's probably a lot more reasons to avoid DF, like really expensive prices... Feel free to contact me (email) if you have further complaints against DF. I will post testimonials for their products as well.)

    JLA/AVENGERS: THE COLLECTOR'S EDITION OVERSIZED, SLIPCASED HARDCOVER
    Reported By Brian Cruz on March 15, 2004, 11:51 PM

    It’s an event that will never be forgotten.

    That’s why the once-in-a-lifetime crossover event that brought these two historic super-teams together and rocked the comics world receives the deluxe treatment it deserves in August! JLA/AVENGERS: THE COLLECTOR’S EDITION is an oversized, slipcased two-volume set collecting the legendary 4-issue miniseries with a full complement of bonus features!

    The 224-page first volume in the slipcase contains the 4-issue miniseries written by Kurt Busiek (ASTRO CITY, SUPERMAN: SECRET IDENTITY) with stunning art by George Pérez (WONDER WOMAN) and introductions by Stan Lee and the late Julius Schwartz, the architects of the original iterations of the Avengers and the Justice League of America, respectively. This volume also features a key to the characters on the intricately detailed cover of JLA/AVENGERS #3.

    The 64-page Compendium, featuring a new cover by Pérez, contains the original 21 pages of pencils from cancelled 1980s crossover by Pérez and writer Gerry Conway, plus an article on it by former DC editor K.C. Carlson, a look at several other unofficial crossovers, and more! But that’s not all — this volume also features the JLA/AVENGERS miniseries proposal and plot synopses, and annotated notes from Busiek for all the obscure characters and creatures crammed into the pages.

    There are no plans to reprint this historical set, so this is the only opportunity to own the material reprinted in the Compendium. Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be a crown jewel in any comics collection!

    This project is supported with house ads.

    Kurt's Question Corner
    Posted: Feb. 10 2004,14:07 by Kurt Busiek

    I don't have many stories about Julie. I never actually worked for him, so I mostly saw him in passing at the DC offices or at cons. But it was always a little amazing to me that Julie Schwartz -- the Julie Schwartz who kicked off the whole friggin' Silver Age and who was responsible for so many great comics -- knew my name and liked my work.

    ...

    Julie has appeared as himself in ASTRO CITY, and as Marksman notes, he's the namesake of Julius Furst. Maybe we should name the local baseball tadium, home of strange sports stories, after Julie...

    And I'm honored, and sad as well, that apparently the last piece of writing Julie did was an introduction to the JLA/AVENGERS book collection.

    As a friend of mine said of Julie's passing -- we should all live so long, we should all have such accomplishments, we should all be as respected and loved.

    My Baltimore Comicon Report
    posted 9/21/03 7:29 PM

    Just got back from the Baltimore Comicon 2003 and, as usual, I had one hell of a time (and hell on my finances). Here's what I can remember from the con regarding Perez:

    • Crossgen's "The War" is going to be 3 issues long and it's going to be written by Ron Marz. The first issue is going to be solicted in May of 2004. It's going to resolve many storylines in many of the Crossgen titles.
    • Perez is jubelent about JLA/Avengers first issue success. He says that he can finally clear out is debts and then some. The selling of the art alone is going to provide his wife with a new car! He also is very glad that this series is totally going to be for the fans.
    • As of today. 1/4 of issue 4 of JLA/Avengers is pen & inked. It looks like it will meet the Dec 31st release date. Perez is very commited to meeting the deadline so that all of the issues will be released before 2004.
    • There is talk of about what format the collected edition is going to be. Perez said that DC is talking to put it into an "absolute" HC format (which I will lobby to no end!). They also said that the prior JLA/Avengers art might be printed in the collected edition as well.
    • Perez needs the cover to issue 3 back because he needs to draw 4 more characters in it! It took 3 weeks for him to draw it. Tom Smith was asking fan at the con to find him color references for some of the characters!
    • I did get one nugget of exclusive info. Hawkeye and Black Canary will meet in issue 3.
    That's all I can think of right now. I'll see how much will get back to me later on in the week.

    From ES, via Forum

    Topic: JLA/AVENGERS PANEL
    posted 5/9/03 4:32 PM

    I broken the posts down to one question and one answer.

  • AVENGERS/JLA #1
  • Fan: How long is it going to be?

    George Perez: It is going to be four (4) prestige books all 48 pages long with wrap around covers which means a grand total of 200 pages of artwork.

    George talked about how happy he is to be working with the creative crew and how they're doing a great job (Kurt Busiek, Tom Smith, Tom Brevoort and Mike Carlin).

    George then talked a little about the coloring of the project and it's approval from the higher ups. George also threw a little trivia at us when he said another great thing about having Mike Carlin involved in the process is that Mike used to be the Late Mark Gruenwald's Assistant editor when Mark was the editor of the original JLA/AVENGERS. It brings a nice sense of closure to the project for him since they are the only two from the original working on this project. Len Wein doesn't work in mainstream comics anymore (Note: George was unaware of Len's Current Batman Mini-series BATMAN: NEVERMORE at DC) and Jim Shooter no longer works for Marvel.

    Fan: Is there going to be a written history of your working on the original or the current version of the project?

    George Pérez: If anything like that is done it would be hopefully for a collected version of the book because this is all in the talk stages so until the book comes out anything regarding a collection is merely speculation by my part but the hope of using the original 21 pages as added material because I'm always a firm believer if you're doing a collected addition of anything particularly the JLA/AVENGERS which is already getting top notch reproduction. You really have to give the fans something extra. I am bound my contract at CrossGen so obvious I can't draw a new cover or anything else for a collection because I only had the wavier for the project.

    One thing that I did as sneaky as I am (everyone laughs) is that for all the ACTOR auctions and other places were I had art work auctioned off that I have done JLA/AVENGERS including the cover of this program well ever single one of those pieces I keep a file so we can use as additional material for any collect works as well so I will have new material, ah, because obviously the only people at Pittsburgh Convention will have seen that cover, ah, granted it will not say "Welcome to the 10th Anniversary of the Pittsburgh Comic Con" (everyone laughs) but I will have new material there.

    to be continued....

    Coming soon: George answer about creator cameos, tuckering (drawing real people in a fictional setting) and the rumor of Kurt Busiek as Big Belly Burger.

    I got it wrong yesterday, Marvel will handle JLA/A #1-3 and we will do #2-4. Trust me, we're doing everything we can to make sure that when this is schedule and solicited, we will ship all 4 on time. Me, I can't wait to start the collected edition.
