So the books are ready. I'm packing them today (Saturday), my son's got a football game today so I won't be able to get them in the mail until Monday.

    Hi everyone, update one PACESETTER #2, I'm calling the printer tomorrow, I'm hoping the issue to be ready the first of next week, today, I'm getting all the envelopes ready for all the orders to ready to ship when I get the books and get them autographed, the good part is CrossGen is 5 minutes from my house, I can bring them by and get the entire creative team to autograph the advance order copies, still taking orders by the way, George is the only one that is a challenge, being he works at home.

    I'm hoping to I get the books this week, I'm on vacation from the day job, that would work out perfect, things haven't gone that smooth for me lately, but you never know my luck might change. Still need contributors for issue three, the drop-dead deadline is Sept 15 for contribution. I've already had all the interviews lined up (I've received two back already). I'm looking for couple more articles; it will be an Avengers/JLA theme issue. I need response for the question of the issue "What is your favorite Avengers and/or JLA character drawn by George and why?" I've received no response yet on this, so come on PEREZ FANS. My magazine is only good as the contributors, PACESETTER IS BY PEREZ FANS FOR PEREZ FANS. Thanks for all the support.

    I hope to have my pictures developed soon from my trip to Dublin Ireland, I got a picture in front of a comic store called Forbiddin Planet, with a Crossgen tee-shirt drawn by George and what was even more cool, the store was selling my magazine THE GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #3, that was neat.

    News on PACESETTER #2, soon as I get the disco make the last minute corrections, I hope to have the printing started and the end of the week.

  • Hi everyone, there is some printing problems that I hope to have all corrected by Monday. I do want to say sorry about the delay to all that have ordered in advance, the money really does help me towards the printing cost. This magazine is truely a labor of love and not of making money.

    I am still taking orders for orders for issue two and I still have back issue available, e-mail me if you are interested at (email).

    Sometime next week I will annouce what I'm looking for the next issue, which will be out in November, the AVENGERS/JLA theme issue.

    One correction I do want to make is there is no free print when ordering PACESETTER #2, but the issue will be autographed by the entire creative team of Solus, truely a one of a kind of offer. Thanks for all the support and contributions to my magazine.

     June 15, 2003 | Pacesetter #2 Printing Problems
    From Vu

    I might have jumped the gun when I announced that PACESETTER #2 was being sent to the printer... I am told that there were some printing problems.

    Watch this space for an announcement (as far as I can tell, it's been pushed back a week).

    Tony Lorenz (email) and Marcus Mebes are doing a great job with the magazine, if you're interested, please write to Tony for ordering information. Usually if you order it direct, they come autographed by George Pérez and with a bonus print (see correction: June 15, 2003 | Pacesetter #2 Update). Every $1.00 of every issue ordered will go to ACTOR.

    Back issues for GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #1, GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #2 (Limited Edition) and PACESETTER, THE GEORGE PEREZ MAGAZINE #1 are still available, but in limited quanity, so I suggest you order them before they're gone like #2 and #3.

    Of course, you can always ask for the magazine through Diamond Comics (through your local comic book dealer).

     June 10, 2003 | Pacesetter #2 Sent to Printers
    From Vu

    Marcus Mebes told me that he's sending everything for PACESETTER, THE GEORGE PEREZ MAGAZINE #2 to the printer today. Based on past experiences, this means it would take another three or four weeks before Diamond put this in their "to be shipped" list.

    Hi, everyone, just want to drop everyone a line to let you know how the next issue is coming a long. I'm just waiting on one more article and somemore copies of art, then I'll for the most part everything for the issue. I think this issue will be a great issue. The nice people at Crossgen even bought the backcover for an ad. I still need some response for question of the issue, I've got quite a few very cool responses, but I need a few more. I also need some feedback on issue one of PACESETTER, what did you think of it, good and bad, it's the only way I can improve my magazine, by the way I still have copies available to order along with The GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #1 and #2 (regular a limited edition), e-mail me for more information. Here's the question of the issue that I still need response for thanks for the support, "What comic would you love to see George draw and why?"

  • 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.

     February 1, 2003 | Pacesetter #1 in Late Feb
    From Tony Lorenz
    I talked to the printers last week, he told me the book will be ready by the 15 of February (PACESETTER #1), so once a get the books and get the autographed by George, we're talking the end of February.

    Also a little info, missed the deadline by two weeks on getting the next issue in the March PREVIEWS, so it won't be listed until the April PREVIEWS, that stinks, so in stead of end of April release, it looks like now an end of May release.

    I think now what's important his to have the material in the printers hands so as soon as I get the totals on orders I can give him the green light.

    So here's part three of what I need is I need some photos (of George Pérez) for the photo gallery, you can e-mail me nice JPEGs or you can mail me nice color copies, please put full name so I know who to give credit it to.

Here's a little info of what to look forward to in the book, the issue should have around four articles, checklist, gallery art, photo gallery, news and an interview with the entire creative team of George's new book Solus, the first official interview with the entire creative team of the book. There will be more.

    [Perez] PACESETTER #2 question of the issue.
    Thu, 23 Jan 2003 01:41:13 -0000

    Hi, everyone I need material for issue two of PACESETTER. I've got a lot so far, but I need more. I need response for the question of the issue, "What comic would you love to see George draw and why?" The following is my response for the feature:

    George drew the first comic I ever bought, but the first series that I really followed month after month was Marv Wolfman's Nova. I would love to see George along with creator Marv Wolfman do a Nova series. I believe it would be a sure fire hit, George and Marv worked so well together on the New Teen Titans and I think George's dramatic style would really bring Nova to like like no other artist has. We have seen George draw Nova on a few very limited occasions, even a full story in the back of an issue of What If? What a series that would be.

    Let's here your response folks, e-mail me at and please put your full name so I can give credit where credit is due.

     January 18, 2003 | Pacesetter #2 Progress
    From Tony Lorenz
    I went to Crossgen Friday and interviewed the entire creative team of Solus, as George and Barbara pointed it out to me that I was the first to interview the entire creative team, which was really cool. The interview went really well, I was nervous at first, a friend of mine, Sam Catalina tagged along and helped. It's going to be a pretty massive interview. I also got quotes from various Crossgen talent on there thoughts of George's artwork for a feature in the issue. I also have received one more article from Gary Beck. Ian Feller from Crossgen was awesome, made everything going very smooth, everyone I've met at Crossgen are nothing but class. I do have to go back down there Monday, they forgot to burn the art that I'm going to use for the cover on the disc and I have to get the odd art like character designs. All and all a very fun day yesterday.
     January 15, 2003 | Pacesetter #2 Info
    From Tony Lorenz
    Friday I'm going over to Crossgen to interview the entire creative team of Solus, it was set up by a really nice guy named Ian Feller. Hopefully then I can see some of the pages from the book, I haven't seen any yet. I'm hoping also to do an interview with Mark Alessi when I'm there. They are also getting me any art that I may need. I'm also having a feature in the issue asking the staff of Crossgen there opinion of George's work, I printed up questionnaire to hand out, but I may just to try and record the responses from as many people I can from Crossgen, I'm only asking people know George's work. So by Friday I may have the bulk of the material for the next issue. I've also have one article for the issue. So basically all I'll need is articles, I'm looking for four more articles, dealing with George four issues of Crossgen Chronicles, I need them pretty quick, because I'm looking to get this issue out three months after issue one, I'm going to try really hard to get this issue out about the same time as the first issue of Solus. I'm sure I still need some artwork too, any convention or commission sketches by George of Crossgen characters are needed.

    From Tony Lorenz
    Here's some more news and update on the next issue, PACESETTER #1 will be in December Preview instead of the November Preview as I had hoped, so that means the book will be out the end of January not the end of December. But I still plan to have the next issue out in March, I've decided on George's suggestion to break the issue up from a Crossgen/Avengers-JLA issue to a Crossgen issue, then the following issue a AVENGERS-JLA issue.

    Also with the help ES there is a 99% chance of an extra interview in issue #1 with writer Gerard (Ultraforce) Jones.
