    1. Any reason why the Perez homage cover ? Are covers up to the artist or was it an editorial decision?
    Stuart Immonen: This was some time ago and I've drawn a number of covers in the meantime, so it's difficult to remember exactly. The cover process if usually collaborative, with the artist submitting several ideas for an editor to see. I wouldn't have proposed this image on my own, so it must have been directed editorially. It's a classic image, and one that fans immediately recognize. It was fun to do with different characters, but still trying to evoke the same emotional response as the original.

    2. What are you currently working on and what can we expect in the future ?
    Stuart: I'm working on the Hulk, yes, but I'm almost finished my commitment to that series. At the same time, I'm working on a Superman limited series for DC with Kurt Busiek. I'm about to start working on a short story written by Kathyrn Kuder for the Matrix website and I just finished a small piece for Nickelodeon's February magazine.

  • The following excerpt is from an interview by Andy Mangels from DAVID ANTHONY KRAFT'S COMICS INTERVIEW #50 - which ran about 127 pages! Lots of rare artwork and information, I highly recommend getting a copy if you haven't got one yet.

    Andy Mangels: Can you explain what happened with the starling similarities with CRISIS #7 cover to X-MEN #136 - which in turn looked liked LOIS LANE #128?
    George Pérez: Well, that was incredible sheer coincidence. I didn't even notice it until BUYER'S GUIDE or someplace showed both covers, and I thought, "My God!" it's an incredible resemblance. My main influence in doing that was a cover of THOR, where Odin is holding the body of his son… that was my inspiration for that cover. I didn't know or remember the X-MEN cover, and haven't the faintest idea when people mention a LOIS LANE cover, which cover they're talking about. So there was definitely a comic-book inspiration there - but not the one that everyone thinks it is.

    Andy: So that was totally all a coincidence then?
    George: Totally. I was rather stunned because the emotional expression on Cyclops and Superman were so similar. Now that was a sheer coincidence. Supergirl and Phoenix are both facing the same way, their head on the same side of the page, so it's like… a weird coincidence. The one exception being not a single one of the covers that people mention did any other artist go as crazy in drawing that many characters in the background. (Laughter)

    Special thanks to Mile High Comics, The Artist's Choice, Ebay, Comic Art L and Outpost 2000 (for giving me the Crisis Posters).
