      GRAPHIC NOVEL SCENE #1 (Aug 2004)
    Blue Line Pro
    As mentioned by Bill Love earlier, there's nothing new for fans who's already followed this series. The review was vague, and didn't really go into details what was in the hardcover, which suggested that they didn't have the hardcover book prior to going to press.

    Following the two page article on the book, is a one page article on George Perez. Again, nothing new here. You might be surprise to see a quote from the JLA/Avengers Panel at The Pittsburgh Comicon (April 27, 2003), which sums up the way George feels about drawing comics - to die with a pencil in his hand.

    Unless you're a hardcore Perez or JLA/Avengers fan, you don't need this magazine in your collection. If you are interested in reading the magazine, you can always ask your local library or order a copy.

    Anyway, here is an excerpt from the JLA/Avengers Collected article:

    Twenty years ago comic book fans were promised their dream project. Marvel fan or DC fan, everyone was looking forward to the meeting between the premier super-hero teams of both companies: The Justice League of America and The Avengers. Everyone knew only one artist could handle such a monumental task: George Perez. George had drawn long runs on both titles and was one of the most popular super-hero artists ever. Inter-company crossovers were rare, but fans and professional alike wanted to see this happen. Who was stronger, Thor or Superman? Who was faster, Quicksilver or The Flash? Who would win in a battle between Batman and Captain America? George was twenty pages into drawing the story when he found out that the editorial department at DC and Marvel were more combative than their heroes could ever be.

    It looks like you can place an order for GRAPHIC NOVEL SCENE #1 directly on Blue Line's website. Also, check out the official website:

    What's also interesting is that GNS #2 and #3's covers are on their website, as of Monday, October 11, 2004 11:30:52 AM.

    Graphic novels are the fastest growing segment of the industry and GRAPHIC NOVEL SCENE provides the info that comic’s readers want to know! What’s in print? What’s it about? Find information valuable to libraries and essential to comic book stores. Including news, reviews, a price guide and more. This is the reference that will help readers find the gems they didn’t know about!

    News: Graphic Novel Scene #1 Currently at the Printer

     From Bill Love (Senior Editor of Graphic Novel Scene)
    Graphic Novel Scene #1 is currently at the printer. From there it goes to Diamond for shipping. I'll let you know when to expect it , but it should be only a few more weeks.

    There is one mistake in the listing you saw. It will be 64 pages, not 48, at the same price.

    Graphic Novel Scene probably won't have any new information for the hardcore Perez fan. The magazine will be sold in comic book stores, but it will mainly be marketed to libraries. Many libraries are now building graphic novel collections and GNS will serve as a guide in helping them to select books for their collections. I have been a Perez fan from day one and thought he would be a great starting point in helping to steer librarians into ordering quality material for their collections. Issue one is the spotlight for George, but expect to find continuing reviews of Perez collections in future issues.

    I would like to ask you, and any of the readers of your site, to go to your local library and request that they carry Graphic Novel Scene. It is a periodic reference for librarians but would be enjoyed by patrons also. Librarians pay attention to patron requests, and the magazine can be ordered through normal library channels.

    Thanks for listening. Anything that fans can do to help libraries to build quality graphic novel collections will only help the comics field to bring in new readers.

    I was at the comic store, browsing through the new PREVIEWS, and I saw this solicitation. It is published by Blue Line Pro, which also published SKETCH #10.
