    After New Mutants, Star Wars, and Spider-Man, I lose track of what you did for the rest of the 1980's. What were you doing?
    BOB: I inked 6 issues of JEMM, SON OF SATURN over Gene Colan, for DC after Klaus Janson bailed out of the series. I pencilled and inked a fill-in on POWER PACK for my friend June Brigman, inked a couple issues of SPITFIRE (one over [Herb] Trimpe, one over McFarlane), and inked a lot of GI JOE covers. I then inked several issues of WONDER WOMAN over [George] Perez breakdowns, then inked several issues of the NEW TITANS over Perez breakdowns, inked a NEW MUTANTS ANNUAL over Brigman breakdowns, inked New Mutants #75 over [John] Byrne breakdowns, and then inked that horrible 12-issue SUB-MARINER series over [Rick] Buckler, which almost stalled my career again. That's when I decided to move back up north to rejuvenate my career, and being back in NYC made a big difference in the assignments I got. I started inking the HULK over Dale Keown, then quit that when I got an offer to pencil SUPERMAN.

    As announced at today’s WizardWorld Texas DCU panel, 2004 will see the release of Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s long (and we mean long) awaited Titans graphic novel, Games. Newsarama caught up with Perez, Wolfman, and even a surprised Mike Lovitz to get the story of this legacy project and see some art.

    First, a little history on the graphic novel. The setting for Games is just after the “deluxe” or “baxter” series changes its name from The New Teen Titans to The New Titans, circa 1988. “The Judas Contact” was a memory, Dick Grayson had become Nightwing, the Wildebeast was around, Perez had left the series, and had just come back with issue #50, the “Who is Wonder Girl?” four-part arc.

    Actually – there’s a funny story about that arc. As it turns out, Games is the second Titans graphic novel.

    “The irony of all of this is that the ‘original’ Titans graphic novel was going to be the ‘Who is Wonder Girl?’ story that ended up being issues #50 to #54 of The New Titans when I came back to the book,” Perez said. “Marv and I had already started that as a graphic novel, but when I came back, we decided that we could put the story into continuity, and get it out of the way. But that was the original graphic novel, so when that was printed, we had to start fresh with a whole new story, and that became Games - so, if you want to get technical about it, this is my second Titans graphic novel.”

    So – on to Games.

    It was originally started sometime between 1986 and 1989, when Wolfman was in New York visiting the then Titans editor Barbara Kesel. “Barb and I were going to meet at George's house in Jamaica, Queens to discuss doing the first Titans graphic novel,” Wolfman recalled. “When I got there I told them the rough basics of what I thought might make a good story, and then we sat down and plotted out the novel. George fleshed it all out and went to work drawing what I thought was some of absolute best Titans material he had ever done.”
