    Apparently, Gorilla Comics died because of their investors (eHero. com) pulling out and the creators had to bear the brunt of the costs which at the time they couldn't afford. (from George Perez: Storyteller)

    Since July 2004, Ash Williams - the reluctant hero of the cult classic film, Army of Darkness - has been an integral part of Dynamite Entertainment's publishing line. Throughout the years, dozens of highly skilled comic artists have drawn and painted our hero, Ash (not to mention the Chosen One's interchangeable armament of chainsaws and mechanical gauntlets, of course). This gorgeous hardcover art book stands as a testament to the unyielding spirit of a horror cinema icon, as captured by some of the comic industry's most beloved talents: J.

    George Perez. Mention that name to the average comics fan and you will, at the least, receive a respectful response. At the most, you could hear an excited verbal dissertation listing that fan’s favorite Perez works and how they impacted his or her life at the time. Well, their hobby life, at any rate. In an age when the word “icon” may be in danger of overuse, it’s safe to say George Perez is approaching such status. Now, there’s a definitive work covering the man and his artistic legacy - George Perez: Storyteller, by Christopher Lawrence.

    GEORGE PÉREZ - STORYTELLER: THE FIRST 30 YEARS HC (2007)
    Dynamite Entertainment
    I know I'm reviewing this a couple of weeks too late, but Dynamic Entertainment's GEORGE PEREZ: STORYTELLER would be an excellent Christmas gift for the George Perez fan in your life. The book is a heavy oversized hardcover tome discussing Perez's life and career from his childhood right up to his current DC work. There are chapters devoted to his original work on Marvel's AVENGERS and FANTASTIC FOUR, the CrossGen years, JLA/AVENGERS, his return to the AVENGERS in the late 90s, and more. The high points you remember are all there. The more interesting thing, for me, was in seeing how they string together and came about.

    I didn't realize Perez had the reputation he did for flaking out on work. I know he had some relatively tough time in the early 90s with spotty work and scheduling, but I didn't realize the issues went back even further. Thankfully, the book doesn't shy away from Perez's issues with meeting deadlines, dropping projects, and having difficult times working on books he doesn't truly believe in. It doesn't paint him as a comics savant, but more as an adult fan who likes to work on what he likes to work on -- largely superhero books with large casts. If they have pretty females, all the better.

    Although we started with a nice-sized bonus section in this week's regular column, I promised more coverage on a variety of other titles that I and others have seen lately. This time, I've got books from three companies to look over. We'll be sorting these by company after I deliver the first review, which covers one of the best historical tomes released this year.

    Any regular reader of Best Shots knows that I'm a huge fan of George Perez's work. I really started following him on Avengers, then Justice League of America and New Teen Titans. My favorite single issue of a series is still #200 of the original run of JLA, a book for which Mr. Perez contributed stand-out framing sequences and the final battle between the League and the alien invaders. Obviously, I'm not the only fan of the man in the world, or else we wouldn't have this wonderfully crafted look at his life and work.

    Reviewer: Prof. Challenger

    A couple of years ago on a Christmas episode of the Howard Stern radio show, one of Howard's cronies gave Howard the massive hardcover DC ENCYCLOPEDIA because of Howard's love of comics. Howard then proceeded to chainsaw the book in half because, as he put it, he loves comics but absolutely hates books about comics!

    Now, see, I'm completely the opposite. I LOOOVVVVEEE books about comics and I'm in the realm of the severely disenchanted as to most monthlies at this stage o' the game. So, it's no surprise that finally getting my grubby little fingers on the hardcover GEORGE PÉREZ: STORYTELLER meant I was going to really dig it.

    ...

    SENTINELS: VOLUME FOUR
    It's a rare thing when a series ends with as satisfying conclusion as SENTINELS does. More often than not, when a finite series makes its final curtain call, whether it be on television or in the pages of comics books, I will find myself extremely disappointed. It happened most recently with the Sci-Fi mini-series THE LOST ROOM. Six hours of my life invested in a great mini-series which just ended up fizzling out by the end. Oh, well.

    I can be grateful, however, that the same thing did not happen with SENTINELS: VOLUME FOUR. I have to say that when I got my hands on this book I was a bit afraid to read it. See, I discovered SENTINELS several years ago at the San Diego Comic-Con and I've loved every page that I've read since I picked up the first book. Yes, it's taken ages for each volume to come out but it's been worth it. Great storytelling takes time and SENTINELS is great storytelling.

    I'm a huge George Perez fan and have been since I was a kid. I first remember sampling his work in the early 1980s on New Teen Titans and Justice League of America. There was just something about his work that set it apart from the art in other comics. The detail, the density of the panel layouts, the expressiveness of the characters' faces… it all stood out as being unique, at least in my mind as a pre-teen and teenage comic fan. This isn't the first time someone has published a book about Perez's career - I have a copy of Focus on George Perez hiding around here somewhere - but this book strikes me as being more blunt and honest about the twists and turns on the path the artist has taken over the years. The writer examines not only Perez's successes but instances in which he faltered or circumstances did not play out to his advantage.

    5. George Perez Storyteller - A Christmas gift from a good friend that I tore through on Christmas day. There have been collections on Perez before, usually in the form of interviews, but this is the first time I've been walked through his entire career. What a trip. Particularly fascinating for Perez fans will be the middle sections on his post-Titans decline, his mid-career fumbles, and the subsequent rejuvenation of his reputation following his run with Kurt Busiek on the "Heroes Return" Avengers. Perez recounts a priceless convention moment when, after his Avengers work allowed his "discovery" by a new generation of fans, one kid told him that he was such a good artist, he had the potential to be the next Todd McFarlane! Ever-gracious, Perez resisted the cheap shot. An attractive and surprisingly revealing book.

    ...Looking at some of his earliest work, you can see the germ of greatness laying there in his panels, and as the book goes forward and the art gets newer, it blossoms before your eyes; if you took away the text of the book and left only the pictures, you would still see Lawrence's narrative point, and vice versa.

    Packaged in a nice hardcover, this is an excellent book for the longtime comics fan or for a younger person considering a career in the field. Either reader will find something worthy and captivating in these pages.

    Dynamite Entertainment

    Okay, it was due out last December, but, with something like George Perez Storyteller, it's hard to get too annoyed about the year wait. The book is due to hit stores tomorrow, and we've got a 25 page preview.

    The volume - a retrospective on the artist who's shaped much of the modern look of comics, is being published by Dynamic Forces, runs over 200 full color pages, and carries a $29.99 price tag. The material, presented as a biography, is written by Christopher Lawrence, with art - of course, by Perez.

    As for that title? It's found at least one fan...

    "I think the title Nick [Barrucci, DF President] chose for the book is very apt - Storyteller," Perez told Newsarama last year. "That's what I do, that's what I want to do," Perez said. "I'm not here to do storyboards for movies, I'm not here to make proposals for things that can be spun off into movies, I do comics."

    Dynamic Forces sent me the manuscript for Storyteller for a spotcheck a few weeks back, so I can confirm that it IS almost completed. I only had time to skim it and look for glaring errors, but I was able to do that. I was told it was going to the printer very shortly.

    Additionally, they're running almost all of my Perez Archives checklist in the back, updated (mostly) to current releases. This should help fans track down more of George's material!

    Here's the latest update from Dynamice Forces regarding the George Perez Storyteller....

    I spoke to someone at customer service named Brian; He explained that the book is being finalized and that the ship date should be 11/18 or soon after. Before December at the latest. When I explained to him that I was skeptical and a little frustrated considering I had paid for this book over a year ago (11/01/05 to be exact!) he assured me that it would be out soon. I know we've heard this before but I'm hoping for the best! Brian was very friendly, apologetic and understooding of my frustration and said that our wait was soon over.

    #4 BEST SELLER (27 Sep 2006)
    I was surprised to find that Storyteller is #4 on today's "Best Sellers" list from dynamicforces.com, especially since Bret confirmed that they are not at print yet.

    In the meantime, I suggest those that's already pre-paid for the book to ask for their money back if you haven't already.

    I have personally had problems with certain vaporware books that I will not buy until I actually see it in print.

    The best solution is to wait until this website announced when it is available to buy.

    Looking around DF's website, I stumbled upon this excerpt from the book:


    CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #5 (Aug 1985)
    >>>
    "No one else could have done what George did," Wolfman exclaims. "His basic storytelling was so superior to anyone’s at the time... no one else could have come close to doing what he did."

    Since there were relatively few places within the issues for Perez to, as Wolfman says, "do what George does best, which is draw big pictures of incredible stuff," the artist brought his "wow-able" abilities to bear on Crisis’ covers.

    Based on a request from Perez’s wife, who felt her husband was pushing himself too hard on the series, Wolfman suggested his artist draw a simple cover for Crisis’ fifth issue, an uncomplicated image featuring only three faces and two merging Earths.

    The cover Perez submitted did contain two merging Earths—along with 96 faces. Once the artist got started, he simply couldn’t stop drawing; if he saw sufficient open space, he added another character’s head. He was having too much fun to stop.

    Just wanted to give you an update, I called Dynamic Forces (www.dynamicforces.com) yesterday to find out if Storyteller was on schedule for October as announced and they said no. Still won't be out for a couple of months, this from Angelo Barrucci, Media Coordinator. You know, we're coming up on this book being solicited an entire YEAR ago. Last time I spoke with them was in March and they SWORE the book was at the printer to be shipped the following month. So what happened, they yanked the book back from the printer? I asked this of Mr. Barrucci and all he had to say was, 'Uh... Uh... Uh... no comment.'

    As a consumer who already PREPAID for this book, I don't know where a publisher has the AUCACITY to solicit for a book that quite obviously was no where NEAR DONE. A year has gone by and nothing. More and more publishers are doing this and by soliciting for a product that quite obviously you are no where NEAR completing or PRINTING, making consumers pay for merchandise that they clearly have no intention of shipping is not only FALSE ADVERTISING but just plain FRAUD and THIEVERY.

    I don't mean to be so strong but as a company, DYNAMIC FORCES had NO BUSINESS soliciting for this project, doing major press on it in places like COMIC SHOP NEWS where it was COVER FEATURED, when they would take well over a year to complete it.

    Shame on them as a business and any consumer should BUYER BEWARE with this company going forward.

    Originally solicited last YEAR, supposed to be out for Christmas 2005, then Jan 2006, Feb 2006, March 2006, JUNE 2006, then I spoke with someone at the end of June, they said it’s at the printer and would DEFINITELY be in JULY.

    We thought, hoped, it would at least ship for San Diego Comic Con and someone in customer service just informed me that the book has been delayed yet AGAIN.

    Once again, the book is not coming out this month.

    They state it’s at the printer but do not know when it will ship but definitely NOT this month.

    DF George Perez, Storyteller: The First 30 Years HC

    Kurt: George Perez. His name means something to the comic industry. You can’t talk about the last 30 years of comics without mentioning his contributions to the medium. Stories Like “Crisis on Infinite Earths” and books like “The New Teen Titans” and “Avengers” made him into a living legend. This HC is a fitting tribute to someone like Perez. Someone who gave so much to us fans, and shows no signs of stopping.

    Kurt: Once again, Twomorrows Publishing makes me a very happy fanboy. Everything you want to know about the premiere teen team is in this book. Interviews with the creators behind the books and unpublished artwork have become a Twomorrows specialty, and this soft cover doesn’t disappoint. Pick this book up and celebrate 25 years of the New Teen Titans!

From his early Marvel work on the Fantastic Four and Avengers to his breakout stint at DC on the New Teen Titans, to his work at CrossGen, Lawrence's monograph covers the arc of Perez's career in over 200 pages filled with full color illustrations.

    George Perez: Storyteller, the First 30 Years will be published in two editions -- a regular version with a cover price of $29.99 and in a deluxe Signed Edition ($49.99), which will be strictly limited to initial orders only.

    Definitive Retrospective Prepared By DF, Featuring George Perez

    GEORGE PÉREZ - STORYTELLER: THE FIRST 30 YEARS HC (Signed) (Dec 2006)
    Dynamite Entertainment
    Dynamic Forces presents “Storyteller” the definitive retrospective on legendary artist George Perez, written by Christopher Lawrence and featuring over 200 pages in full color as well as an all-new cover by Perez.

    An excerpt from the book is available at the end of this release.

    George Perez started his comics career as an assistant to Deathlok creator Rich Buckler. In fact, George's first work was a two-page humor piece which appeared in Marvel's Astonishing Tales #25 which introduced Deathlock the Demolisher. George was given fill-in jobs on two low-selling series, Man-Wolf in Creatures on the Loose #33 and The Sons of the Tiger in Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #6. The writers of these two series, David Kraft and Bill Mantlo, respectively, were impressed enough with the newcomer's work to have him become the regular penciller on both series.

    The rest is history.

    “It’s hard to imagine that George Perez has been gracing the comics world for 30 years now. George has been an idol of mine since I first started reading comics and I’m fortunate that he’s grown to be a close friend as well over the years I’ve been in the business,” explained DF President Nick Barrucci. “We’re honored that the first in our series of historical and archival works, featuring the masters of the form, will start with Storyteller, spotlighting George!”

    The book is featured in the pages of the new Previews (pages #276 and #277) and is available for PRE-ORDER now from your local comics shop, or direct from Dynamic Forces.

    GEORGE PÉREZ - STORYTELLER: THE FIRST 30 YEARS HC (2007)
    Dynamite Entertainment
    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.
