    Be here for the next step in the evolution in comics. The Crisis and its aftermath have led to this! Come join senior group editor Mike Carlin and senior editor Matt Idelson with Gail Simone (Secret Six, All-New Atom), Howard Porter (JLA, Trials of Shazam), as they take you inside DC's Brave New World. Recorded live on July 23, 2006 at Comic-Con San Diego, CA. Brought to you by DCcomics.com

    (excerpt)

    Fan: Since Infinite Crisis, I have no idea what the hell the continuity of the DC is. All of a sudden, Wonder Woman is part of the Justice League beginning. How does that affect the George Pérez series? Where does that fit in? ... What is and what isn't part of the current world? Are we going to find out, or are we going to have to read for years.
    Matt Idelson: There's a project in the works for next year. And I don't know if it's been announced, so I'm not going to say too much, except that it's designed to address some of these things, from some of the books and different characters.

    Mike Carlin: A lot of what we're doing is not going to say that the George Pérez series fits perfectly right now. That's 15 years ago, almost 20 years ago. It's going to change and evolve every decade or so.

    Worlds lived. Worlds died. And the DC Universe was never the same! In 1985, DC Comics dramatically altered comics' original universe with CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, a 12-issue series that rocked the comics community, tragically dooming some of DC's most beloved characters and drastically altering others. Written by Marv Wolfman and pencilled by George Pérez, with inks by Dick Giordano, Jerry Ordway and Mike DeCarlo, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS finds the alternate worlds that once were a hallmark of the DC Universe under siege by a mysterious force powerful enough to wipe out the lives of billions.

    Now this landmark series gets the star treatment in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS: THE ABSOLUTE EDITION - an oversized slipcased set containing two hardcover books. The 368-page Book One includes the full 12-issue maxiseries (which was painstakingly restored and meticulously recolored in 1998), with an introduction by Marv Wolfman, afterword by Dick Giordano, and creator bios. George Pérez provides all-new art for the dustjacket. (Please note that the Monitor Tapes section from issue #10 will be shot from the original art for this issue and represented in its original form.)

    The 96-page Book Two contains a compendium featuring the full behind-the-scenes story on the years-long making of the maxiseries complete with memos, notes, original plots and commentary from Marv Wolfman and Jerry Ordway; the Official Index to Crisis and Official Index to Crisis Crossovers being reprinted for the very first time, completely updated; a look into post-Crisis events and aftermath stories, how the Superboy/Legion conundrum was solved, and a look at the 20th anniversary of this seminal event. George Pérez provides all-new art for the dustjacket. Advance-solicited; on sale November 16 o Oversized, slipcased hardcover o 464 pg, FC, $99.99 US

    WONDER WOMAN: GODS AND MORTALS TPB (Feb 2004)
    Lamar Henderson: "This cycle is something that happens to all serial stories, no matter how we may wish otherwise. It happened to the STAR TREK franchise sometime during the run of DEEP SPACE NINE. It happened to BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and X-FILES around the end of season 5 for each. It happened with X-MEN after the 'Dark Phoenix' storyline in 1980. The thing with TV show and most movie franchises (James Bond being a notable exception) is that there comes a time when the show has to end. Not so with comics. A series can continue with the same characters indefinitely, in spite of the fact that there's pretty much nothing new that can be done with the characters. And that's the problem with Superman, in my humble opinion. There's nothing new that can be done with the characters and the series can't be significantly changed because of its mythic status. If DC were going to make a bold move with the series, what they'd do is let Clark Kent and company retire and pass on the name to an entirely new concept, something different but still true to the basic principles of the Superman mythos. That, however, will never happen." Perhaps not, Lamar – but the other difference between comics and television/movie series is that, while each may run through periods of stagnancy or times when even fans get well and truly sick of them, comics tend to push through those periods until a moment comes when true innovation occurs and the character is revitalized. Batman was one of the most boring characters around during the late 70s and early 80s, for instance, but no one would say that about him now. Wonder Woman is enjoying a similar renaissance now, even though her last big heyday in the public eye (apart from George Perez and Phil Jimenez's much-admired run in the 80s and early part of this decade) was the late 70s. STAR TREK itself came back to television after a long period of "hiatus," broken only by movies and ongoing fandom. Perhaps we're experiencing that same sort of renaissance for Supes right now?

    The TRIGON collection is a trade and the next Perez Titans material you see is will be the second volume of the Archives, probably in 2004. Yes, we'll be recoloring his JLA and Wonder Woman books when we get to them. No, George won't be doing new covers, as mentioned earlier.

    Right now, the Perez volumes are moving slowly through the system. Until we need the covers, we're not sure which way we're going. Neither JLA or WW are currently on the schedule so we have time to make this work out.

    Yes, the plot to #4 is approved but there's no way George can do all that's left and still have all 4 come out this year. Neither DC nor Marvel, I suspect, want to wait on a bi-monthly schedule so we need for George to be well into #4 before scheduling the monthly event.

    Well the Baltimore convention for me was cool. Got to meet Mr. Perez finally. Though my friend and I drove him crazy with signing comics. He signed every issue of his Wonder Woman run for her, and I went on a Find Perez Issue hunt, and every time I found one, He signed it. Prime, Ultraforce, Wonder Woman, Superman. Anyway, Mr. Perez let us know with some excitment on his face that DC Comics is finally going to do Trade Paper backs of Wonder Woman 1-24. Of course you know, this is Mr. Perez's run of Wonder Woman. Thought you might like to know. Also he had the pencil cover for his new book there. OUTSTANDING!!!!!! Have fun.

    I actually just left the Comic Con here in Baltimore and George Perez was there. He stated that DC was planning on putting his entire run as writer/artist on Wonder Woman, in three volumes. 8 issues in each volume, if I'm not mistaken, to kinda coincide with the whole JLA/Avengers thing. He's a nice guy and he signed my Wonder Woman (vol 2) #2! Wooo!

    Why are there no compilations of WONDER WOMAN in the 50s. 60s and 70s? When are the collected Wonder Woman TPB collections by George Perez coming out?
    -- Sherman Williams

    No plans for a WW IN THE (PICK YOUR DECADE) volume any time soon. The Perez volume is tentatively planned for next year.
