    • Recreate the New Teen Titans #1 cover with statues for only $560 From io9.gizmodo.com NEW TEEN TITANS #1 (Nov 1980) DC Comics George Pérez and Dick Giordano’s cover for The New Teen Titans #1 in 1980 is one of the most famous team shots—not just for the Titans, but in DC Comics history. (excerpt) DC Collectibles is going to make you work to complete the seven-statue collection, however—each character is being sold separately for a whopping $80 each, and slowly rolled out in late 2018. Starfire and Robin will be released in August, Beast Boy and Cyborg in September, Kid Flash and Wonder Girl in October, and then Raven will go on sale sometime in November.

    Vibe sketch by George Perez

    VIBE (2005)
    art by George Pérez 
    from hobkirk2001
    Here is a rarely seen Vibe sketch by George Perez... George admitted he never liked the character.

    In the interview from COMICS JOURNAL #100 (Jul 1985), George said:

    Perez: ... I’d like the JLA, I haven’t drawn Vibe yet, I have a certain bigotry towards Vibe, but eventually I’ll have to draw him.

    Heidi MacDonald: (giggles) Not exactly your favorite character, eh?

    Pérez: Oh, I sincerely say he’s the one character who turned me off the JLA. If nothing else, every character that was introduced was an ethnic stereotype. I couldn’t believe it. I said, “Come on now!” These characters required no thinking at all to write. And being Puerto Rican myself, I found the fact that they could use a Puerto Rican character quite obviously favorable since the one Puerto Rican characters in comic that existed, the White Tiger, is no longer a viable character. But having him be a break dancer! I mean, come on now. It’s like if there were only one black character in all of comics, are you going to make him…

    MacDonald: A tap dancer.

    Pérez: A tap dancer, a shoeshine boy? Particularly when you’re picking a stereotype that’s also a fad. You’re taking a chance that this guy is going to become very passe, his costume becomes passe because it’s a breakdance costume, the minute the fad fades.
