Magazine (64 pages)
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.
JLA / AVENGERS: THE COLLECTOR'S EDITION
PITTSBURGH COMICON 2003
(25-27 Apr 2003)
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:
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.
I was surprised to find this at the comic store today.
Apparently Diamond shipped the book this week.

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
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.
