    George created this amazing piece of art for Wizard: The Guide To Comics for its Last Man Standing feature. Appearing in Wizard #105 it featured these two super-teams squaring off in the ultimate "what if" battle in an issue of Wizard devoted to the Greatest things in Comics.

    This 19-by-19 inch masterpiece, both inked and penciled by George himself, features 25 members of each team about to square, and this is one of the few pieces that will be made available once the series comes out this summer. Also included in this original artwork selection are two concept drawings, one of the original proposal to Wizard, the second the final layout as approved by the Wizard design staff that was used as a template for the final piece you see in its colored form here.

    Notes: The actual piece of art that the winning bid will receive is not colored!

    The art is currently framed and matted with both sketches.

    Comic battles you never thought you'd see: JLA vs Avengers

  • Art by George P�rez, originally published in WIZARD #105
  • With the mini-series just months away we decided to give you our version of what the titanic tussle known as JLA/Avengers would entail (try saying that five times fast). Last Man Standing Presents: JLA vs Avengers!

    THE PLAYERS... Truly the World�s Greatest Superheroes, the JLA will stop at nothing to right the world�s wrongs. While the roster may constantly changeth, the cause forever stays the course. They are Earth�s mightiest heroes: The Avengers.

    THE BATTLE... Welcome to World War III. With millions of lives in the balance, the JLA and Avengers face off in the ultimate showdown. Following a rousing cry of �Avengers Assemble!,� Earth�s Mightiest Heroes prepare for battle. As Captain America sizes up his counterpart Batman, he barks out orders to his fellow Avengers. Thor, not missing a beat, hurls his enchanted hammer Mjolnir at Superman, knocking him clear of the battle. The Odinson chases down the Last Son of Krypton, starting an epic battle of their own which ends with the Asgardian victorious� barely. Meanwhile, just as Firestorm turns Cap�s shield into cotton candy, Quasar bursts in to give the element-arranger a serious pounding. And the heroes continue to fall. Wonder Woman trounces She-Hulk. Namor snags Aquaman�s harpoon as his prize. The Flash runs rings around Quicksilver. And the battle continues. Orion and Big Barda almost reach their limit as Goliath and Hercules fall. Green Arrow and Zatanna drop before Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch. Iron Man�s energy (and experience) knocks Green Lantern out. And when the dust finally settles, there stands Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, facing Batman, Captain Marvel, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Orion and Big Barda. And while the battle continues to rage on for hours, the Avengers ultimately collapse before the sheer might of the World�s Greatest Superheroes: the JLA.

    George P�rez JLA/Avengers Art Hits the eBay Big Time

    By Christopher Lawrence

    George P�rez will take an ocean voyage to Scandinavia this summer...paid for by his maiden voyage into the world of online auctions.

    The "ultimate George P�rez fan collector piece," a spread depicting a battle between the Justice League of America and the Mighty Avengers, sold on the eBay auction site [www.ebay.com] in May for a whopping $6,302.

    "I was stunned," P�rez said of the results. "I�m quite pleased."

    The online battle for the art, which appeared in the "Last Man Standing" feature in Wizard #105, was just as heated as the epic conflict depicted in P�rez�s pencils.

    Twelve bidders went head to head over the piece during the week-long auction, tossing out a total of 35 bids. Eventual champion Scott Isaacson delivered the winning bid just nine minutes prior to the auction�s close.

    So what possessed him to fork over six grand for a piece of artwork?

    "I�m crazy," he laughed. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance... It�s just so unique."

    Isaacson, who was the first person to bid on the art, paid close attention to the auction�s status--even more so than P�rez. The artist admitted he checked on the auction�s status from time to time, but said such efforts were basically unnecessary: "I had so many people calling me and updating me on it...Most people were quite astounded."

    Sure, $6,302 is more than the average P�rez groupie can afford, but the piece is definitely worth it. In addition to its obvious value as a George P�rez original, the artwork may just mark the last time fans get to see the JLA face off against the Avengers.

    "I can�t imagine they�ll ever get that book together," P�rez said. "They�ve had ample opportunity...if they didn�t try to seriously act upon it during the time when JLA and Avengers are at their hottest, I can�t see any other time they�re going to do it."

    Artist Joe Jusko hopes to duplicate P�rez�s eBay success. Working in conjunction with Wizard, the renowned artist will auction the Sabretooth, Mystique and Professor X covers he painted for Wizard: The Comics Magazine.

    The three pieces will go up for auction sequentially, with the first one beginning Monday, June 26.

    PÉREZ ART AUCTION
    Wizard Auctions George Perez Artwork from Wizard #105

    Nearly 20 years ago, George Pérez started work on what could have been one of the legendary comic battles of all-time: The Justice League of America versus The Mighty Avengers. But due to company politics between DC and Marvel, the project was killed, and never saw the light of day.

    Until now.

    Pérez went back to the drawing board one last time for Wizard #105, The Greatest Issue ever, and created one of the most memorable Last Man Standings ever with the two teams pairing off in classic Pérez fashion.

    To further defuse one of the comicdom’s most egregious oversights, Wizard has joined forces with Pérez and is auctioning off this one-of-a-kind piece of original art on E-Bay as you read this.

    The 19-by-19 inch masterpiece, both inked and penciled by Pérez, features 25 members of each team about to square of, and is the last time he will ever draw these two teams together.

    Also offered on E-bay as part of the package are two concept drawings by Pérez, one of the original proposal to Wizard, the second the final layout as approved by the Wizard design staff, which was used as a template for the final piece you see in its colored form here.

    The bidding on this item closes on Monday, May 22 a little after 5:41 p.m. EST. To check out the auction, click here:
