    BOOMSTICKS, MASKS AND DEADITES... OH MY!

    DARKMAN VS ARMY OF DARKNESS #1 (Oct 2006)
    For Darkman vs. The Army of Darkness, veteran scribes Kurt Busiek and Roger Stern strapped on chainsaws along with artist James Fry to produce the miniseries hitting shelves tomorrow. Recently, Busiek discussed his decade-long drive to arrange this cult-classic team-up. He also waxed poetic about his love of the comic duo, nuking Deadites from space, and why Sam Raimi [the director of the "Army of Darkness" and "Darkman" films] is so great.

    (excerpt)

    Tell us the premise of the story. How do these two characters cross paths?
    BUSIEK: The premise of the series is pretty simple. If you want to do an Ash story, it's got to have the Army of Darkness, and if you want to do a Darkman story, you've got to mess with his city, and particularly, with Julie Hastings. So we have Julie accidentally read an incantation from the Necronomicon ex Mortis and summon the Army of Darkness to Darkman's city. Now Julie's at the heart of this conflict with the Army of Darkness. The Deadites are menacing the city and that brings Darkman into it, and because the Deadites are menacing the city they seek out the legendary hero that is said to oppose and defeat the Deadites. Well, what they get is Ash. They were expecting someone a little bit more together than that. From there, the fun ensues. Ash's attitude is, "They're Deadites, kill 'em all." Darkman specifically wants to rescue Julie. So they have different approaches and different motivations that lead to conflict between them as well as figuring out how to solve their goal. It's a big pulpy, splashy adventure story.

    DARKMAN BATTLES THE ARMY OF DARKNESS
    By The Editor
    Jun 8, 2006, 09:19

    DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information concerning their newest addition to the ARMY OF DARKNESS with a special cross-over, mini-series event, featuring DARKMAN! The mini-series event begins in August, replacing the regular DYNAMITE AOD series for that month, and will continue bi-monthly until the mind-blowing final issue! "We've got two great characters, two great cover artists [the previously announced George (Infinite Crisis/Brave and the Bold) Perez for issue #1 - and all 4) with AOD veteran Nick Bradshaw - what great creators!," commented DYNAMITE SPOKESPERSON J. ALLEN. "Fans will be talking about this one for years to come, and as far as AOD cross-overs go, this is just the beginning --we have BIG, BIG plans for Ash in ’06 and ’07, and we’ll be giving you the sugar, that’s for sure!" Co-Writer Kurt (“Superman”) Busiek, who wrote the former comic book incarnation of DARKMAN for Marvel describes the pairing “Kinda like Superman and Batman, but this particular "world's finest" lives in a mixed-up, demented world...” Co-writer Roger (“Living Legend” this guy’s written everything from Dr. Strange to Superman) Stern added that the “characters of Darkman and Ash have already been pretty well established. It's all a matter of weaving stories that are faithful to both of them.”

    DYNAMITE ANNOUNCES PEREZ AS "DARKMAN" COVER ARTIST
    by Arune Singh, Staff Writer
    Posted: May 30, 2006

    Runnemede, NJ, May 30, 2006 –* Dynamite Entertainment announced today more details concerning their upcoming comic book series featuring Darkman – and the cool creator Cover artist is . . . . . . . George Perez! The comic book series is being developed through an agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, licensor for the Darkman franchise.

    “This is a BIG one,” explained Dynamite Spokesperson J. Allen. “We were able to get George to sign on for this special event before he signed his exclusive to DC. We're grateful that he left space for us in his schedule to provide some "dynamite" covers for the launch of Darkman! Right now, we’re waiting on pins and needles to see George’s cover to the rest of the event series! This is bigger than big! This is DYNAMITE!”

    The company previously announced that Darkman would launch as part of a special cross-over with the Sam Raimi helmed Army of Darkness, a cross-over that we hope the fans love as much as the creators putting it together do, featuring the writing of Kurt Busiek with Roger Stern, who will be joined on the cross-over launch by artist James Fry. Issue #1 is being offered now in Previews Magazine, in the Dynamite Entertainment section!

    “George is now officially the icing on the cake,” concluded Allen. “Stay tuned for more details!”

    DARKMAN VS ARMY OF DARKNESS #1 (Oct 2006)
    I am currently inking the incredible Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on a project written by Phil Jimenez, who is also the cover penciler, with me inking Phil. Unfortunately, beyond that, I'm not at liberty to reveal what the project is so I've been calling it "The EZ Company Project" since all three creators share the same last two letters in our family names. DC Comics should be making an announcement relatively soon and it will be a relief to finally be able to talk about it openly.

    Contrary to solicitations I have indeed drawn the cover for FALLEN ANGELS #20. Due to a mix-up in the scheduling it initially appeared that I couldn't do the cover, so the regular team was told to go ahead and draw the cover. When Peter David found out about that he reminded the editor that the deadlines had been pushed back and even though the book had been solicited with another cover, Peter figured few would be bummed out to find that there was a Pérez cover after all.

    I have also drawn a cover for a Marvel Visionaries book spotlighting my 1970's run on FANTASTIC FOUR. Tom Smith colored that piece and, as usual, did a wonderful job.

    I am currently drawing a variant cover for Top Cow's CITY OF HEROES #1 and will be drawing the cover for a CITY OF HEROES novel called "Web of Arachnos". This should be the first of three covers for a series of CoH novels. And since I just mentioned Top Cow, I should also announce that I will be participating in a special 10th Anniversary edition of WITCHBLADE. I will be drawing three pages written by Ron Marz. And as I draw those pages I will be filmed by a video crew for TwoMorrows' DVD companion to its MODERN MASTERS book series.

    There have been other offers, including some covers for Dynamic Forces' RED SONYA and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I also will be providing a cover for DF's STORYTELLER, yet another retrospective on my career. (I am definitely being over-exposed). A cover for ForceWerks' B.A.B.E. FORCE is also on my schedule. There have been other one-shots I've been offered that I'm not yet free to discuss, or yet to accept, but after "The EZ Company Project" I will be primarily focusing my attention on completing GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Inker Mike Perkins has already started on some pages and Tom Smith has 30 pages ready to start so it's up to me to get busy so that Marv Wolfman can start dialoguing the first half of the book.

    As for conventions this year, here's my schedule for 2005 so far.
    February 25-27: Mega Con in Orlando, FL.
    March 18-20: Wizard World Los Angeles in Long Beach, CA
    April 22-24: Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville, PA (I even provided the T-Shirt art)
    July 14-17: Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA
    September 13-17: Comic Book Festival in Avilés, Spain

    Those are the confirmed shows. There is a possibility of more, but I'm trying to limit my time away from the drawing board this year.
