     March 3, 2003 | Pacesetter #1 to Ship
    From Tony Lorenz

  • Hi everyone, just wanted to let everyone know that all advance order copies of PACESETTER #1 will be shipped before the end of the week, most likely Thursday, I'm getting the books bagged and boarded right now and I've already got the envelopes ready, from there just to take them to the Post Office. I had George sign them at the Mega Con, I was there all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday, a good show, very Crowded Saturday I took a few pictures when I was there, I'll send them to Vu's for site. Thanks to everyone that ordered advance copies, I really appreciate it, it really helps with the print costs.

    I am now taking advance orders for issue two. I finalized what I'm offering for issue two at the Mega Con. I was hoping to make another print with art, but that just going to happen, so what I'm offering for issue two is not only will George will be autographing the book, but so will Barbara, Rick and Larry the entire creative team from Solus. With every copy ordered directly from me one dollar will be donated to the ACTOR fund, now if you want to donate more, say that you didn't want to buy more than one copy of my book any dollar over the order amount will be donated toward the ACTOR fund, so if you send a check to me for $9.00 and the order price is $6.50 for each copy, $1.00 for ordering the copy plus the $2.50 that you over paid making your contribution to the ACTOR fund $3.50. I hope to contribute at least a $1000 dollars. You'll be getting a one of a kind book and supporting a great cause, besides the advance orders really help with the shipping cost.

     January 17, 2002 | Spinnerack Interviews Brevoort
    From Ilke Hincer
    Tom Brevoort is also given 'The Third Degree' at, and here are a couple of excerpts from the Q & A: (Link courtesy of Marvel Comics)

    What was the last comic book you bought?
    I bought comics just today: Dark Knight Strikes Again #1, Fray #5, the new Savage Dragon, the second issue of the George Perez Newsletter, Will Eisner's new hardcover, and the second World's Finest Archives. Amusing aside—Peter David entered the very same store not five steps behind me, shopped the entire time I was there within arms reach of me at times, and never once noticed me. But that's okay—he handed in a Captain Marvel script just yesterday.

    What is the worst advice you've ever received?
    George Perez will never be able to do Avengers monthly! You should find somebody else!

    From Vu
    I received the GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #2 (Limited Edition) and the regular (autographed) edition in the mail today. Thanks, Tony!

    The special print is a drawing of Conan's face by Pérez, which was colored by Marcus Mebes and printed off a color ink jet printer. See the full review for more details regarding the contents.

    The only other different thing is obviously the beautiful cover by Pérez and colored by Tom Smith. All copies of the limited edition are autographed by George, what a nice guy. We are all looking forward to issue number three, which has a Crimson Plague theme. Any contributions for future issues are always welcome, please write to Tony Lorenz.

    GPN #2 update
    12/6/01 5:44 pm

    Hi, everyone a little update on the GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #2, I just came from George's yesterday, he signed all the limited editions, plus a few of the regular edition, this is just something special for the the contributors of the issue. Just to clear up what the print runs is, I guess I wasn't really clear, the regular edition had a print run of 1750 (1660 went to Diamond, leaving me 90 copies to sell and for the contributors), the limited edition has a print run of 250, only available from me, different cover colored by Tom (Avengers) Smith, no logo, it's awesome!!!!!!! You get a free color bonus print colored by Marcus Mebes when you order the limited edition, it's awesome too. Don't wait on ordering copies, because I've already got several e-mails from people that bought issue two off the stand, that didn't get the first issue, wanting to order limited edition and the first issue. So if you enjoyed the first issue, I wouldn't wait to long to get your order in, before it's too late. Talking with George we already have a good plan for issue three, I'm guessing will be 100 page issue. All prices include postage:
    $6.50 US
    $7.00 Canada
    $10.00 International Cash or paypal

     December 6, 2001 | GPN #2 Correction
    From Vu
    I am told there was more than 90 printed of the regular edition of GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #2 (Diamond Edition). From a previous news article Tony stated that he got 90 copies from the printer, the rest of the print run is more than that. A good guess is the print run is either 1,000 or 1,500 copies. Issue one had a print run of 500 copies. Thanks to Marcus Mebes for correction.

    From Vu
    As mentioned earlier, GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #2 (Diamond Edition) is in stores today. The GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #2 (Limited Edition) will probably be shipped in a week or two. The reason ? George Pérez is autographing all 250 copies. Marcus Mebes said that they will be autographed next Wednesday, and will likely be mailed Thursday or Friday.

    You should note that the Diamond Edition/Regular have a much smaller print run than the "Limited Edition". There are only 90 copies of the regular version [please see correction], which makes it the rarer of the two editions. For casual fans, you should contact Tony Lorenz and order yourself a copy of the Limited Edition, while for hardcore fans, you might want both version for your collection.

    I haven't read everything yet, but from first impression, it is really impressive. If you're familiar to the first issue, the cover are in color and the interior are in black and white. Issue two features a squarebound format (similiar to Prestige Formats) and the covers have a thin plastic coating.

    There are three interviews in this issue, George Pérez, Tom Smith, and Kurt Busiek. The Busiek interview mostly focused on his work, including his upcoming POWER COMPANY. Smith's interview mostly is about coloring, although it's interesting to note that Smith got into coloring because Neal Adams thought his art "sucked" but liked his coloring.

    Excerpt from the interview with George Pérez:

    TL: ...Now all we need is the never finished "GAMES" graphic novel to be completed. I can dream right?
    GPz: And I'm afraid that now that GAMES dream is never going to be more than that. In addition to the presence of dead chracters like Jericho appearing, a major scene in the story took place on the World Trade Center towers. That pretty much ends the speculation for me.

I hope to bring them to George's the middle of next week and start mailing them out by the end of next week, sorry about the delay folks.

    From Tony Lorenz, via Pérez Yahoo Club
    THE GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER, talk to the printer today, Harold Buchholz, everything is going very well, no problems, he tells me that he should be getting the books by the 19th of this month. So I should receive the books (limited edition and some of the regular editions, probably the week later). Now this is where I need your help Perez fans. A lot of you that ordered first issue and have said that were going to order the limited edition have not. I'm sending two hundred tomorrow, but I still owe about $250.00 on top of that. Issue two is a lot more money than the first issue, 500 copies of the first compared to 2000 copies of the second. Another down side is Diamond gets 60% cut and I probably won't get paid by them until the beginning of January. So I have to pay the printer up front. One of the main reason for offering a limited edition, was to get some advance orders to help with printing cost. I'm going to have it paid off before the 19th, but any orders that I can get in would be very nice. Plus you don't want to wait until the last minute and miss out. I still have copies of number one and I will have a very limited number of copies of the regular edition of #2 and I'm still taking orders on the limited edition #2 (autographed, alternate cover colored by Tom (Avengers) Smith, bonus color print).

    Please, please send the orders to the address above, don't send to my old address. I recently ordered 4 pages a George's artwork (a Crossgen page, a Crimson Plague page, a I-Bot page and a Gladiator page), well it seems that UPS dropped it off on my porch of my old house, the package had insurance on it but they still dropped it with out a signature. From talking to my old neighbors that some kids got a hold of the package, another nieghbor said he had seen some artwork all ruined in the gutter, I'm really upset about it, my only hopes is to get my money back, but really all I want is the artwork. So please send it to my new address above, thank you.

      Here's the limited edition cover [and regular cover]. This one will NOT have any title or number on the cover at all... and I believe only 250 copies will be available. I've put together the first draft of this issue, and BOY OH BOY do we have some awesome stuff in store for everyone. My favorite part is the Art Gallery section... it's VAASSTT!!! HUUUGGGE!!!! So many wonderful pieces that people have never seen before! Plus, a new addition to the Art Gallery that's sure to make a bunch of people really happy! There's also some real in-depth articles and appreciations, as well as interviews with Tom Smith, Kurt Busiek, George (of COURSE), and the Marvel Checklist. It's 64 pages this time, square bound, still comic-sized. The cover was designed and colored by me (yes, that be MY hand and my handwriting scribbled on the sticky notes) and the limited edition cover was colored by Tom Smith. The standard edition is gonna be made available anywhere that placed orders with Diamond for it, as well as from Tony; but the limited will only be available directly from Tony.

      I just called George to ask him if he's gotten the first draft yet, but he wasn't in the studio, so I'll try back some other time.

      Hey gang, here's the special offer that I hinting about on the GPN #2. Did everyone see it in Diamond's PREVIEW, I must say they gave me some nice coverage. There will be two editions, the Diamond edition and a limited edition that can only be order from me. Everything is the same with the Diamond edition except for:

      1. each issue will be signed by George
      2. each book will be bagged
      3. a bonus color print colored by Marcus Mebes (one per order)
      4. 99% for sure this edition will have a different cover.
      5. limited to 250 copies

      I'm taking orders now, this issue will have more pages 64 instead of 48, so that means more of George's great artwork showcased. Squarebound format. The issue is coming along very well.
      $6.50 USA check or money order

    From Tony Lorenz

      I'm starting to work on the checklist for issue two [of the GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER] this week. I sent some ads out to the CBG last week, I'm going to send out to a couple of other magazine in the next weeks. Work has really slowed me down in that area. I've got two, maybe three articles for issue two. I'll be contacting Tom Smith and Kurt Busiek about the interviews for issue two, I'll probably conducting them some time in August, I'm shooting for a Sept/Oct release. I think I've got the front and back cover for issue two. I'm pretty excited about the issue. Still up in the air comic size or magazine size. We'll see.
