    In the past I know that you've posted some of the homages that I've commissioned based on George's work.  I've gotten a few news ones over the last few months.

    The first is based on an old Wizard cover that George did but with different versions of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America:

    AVENGERS TRINITY (art by Mitch Ballard) (2010)
    I also got this one which comes from an issue of Brave and the Bold George did:

    BRAVE AND THE BOLD #3 (Page 14) (May 1998), published in  BRAVE AND THE BOLD #3 (Apr 2007)

    KANG AND THE MASTERS OF EVIL (Art by Mitch Ballard) (Dec 2010)

    and I just got this one, based on George's old JLA covers:
    JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #209 (Dec 1982)

    AVENGERS #150 RE-IMAGINED (Art by Mitch Ballard) (Dec 2010)

    WIZARD BIG COVERS BOOK is currently on sale on Bud Plant for $16.99, normally this book retails for $24.99, so it was a bargain. Plus, you can also get free shipping if you use the code: "FF4", offers expires May 31st, 2004.

    I'm glad I picked up this book because it offers insights on all of WIZARD's first 100 covers, bounded in a sturdy hardcover book.

    Here is the info and original cover sketches for WIZARD #76:

    CAPTAIN AMERICA
    (December 1997)
    Penciler: George Pérez
    Inker: Jimmy Palmiotti
    Colorist: Liquid Graphics

    Hard to believe, but this - the 76th issue of Wizard - featured our first George Pérez illustrated cover. We tapped the legendary artist to tackle the iconic Captain America besting his longtime nemesis the Red Skull. Perez other two sketches testify to hsi immense talent - both presented dynamic possibilites, and we couldn't have gone wrong running any of them.

    To sum up: Perez is the goods.

    WIZARD #81 had a variety of different colors for the background, but the book only showed the green cover:

    Note that the published cover is purple.
