    Regarding: Comic Book Legends Revealed: George Perez accidentally drew a non-Avenger into his Avengers 30th Anniversary Poster

    I do not know were they got their info about the Avengers poster, but it's not from me.

    Let me just respond to their claims to me taking it on myself to remove the Shroud from the poster: it never happened. It was George [Perez], who asked me to remove him, he is the artist, and only he could make that call, not me. Also, George never draws anything accidentally. He wanted the Shroud in there the first time and wanted him removed 11 years later. I cannot remember the reason why, George will have to tell you that himself.

    Once again, I never talked to these guys ever about this poster so I do not know where they got their info from, and quite frankly, I'm a little annoyed that they would quote me on something I never said.

    Best..
    Tom Smith

    Comic Book Legends Revealed #300 – Part 2
    February 12, 2011 @ 12:00 PM

    Welcome to the three hundredth in a series of examinations of comic book legends and whether they are true or false. Click here for an archive of the previous two hundred and ninety-nine.

    COMIC LEGEND: George Perez accidentally drew a non-Avenger into his Avengers 30th Anniversary Poster, then edited him out years later.

    STATUS: True

    George Perez was #4 on the Top 50 Comic Book Artists countdown.

    As you can tell, Shroud is intentionally put to the side, to show his connection to the team without showing him as an actual MEMBER of the team (by the way, anyone have a color jpeg of this poster?).

    However, as you might imagine, this was kind of confusing. It’s a poster of the Avengers and he’s on there. So perhaps due to this (or whatever other reasons) a list was made up of members of the Avengers and it was given to George Perez to draw for his awesome 30th Anniversary Poster in 1993 (with Tom Smith on colors).

    It’s an amazing piece, even if so many of the characters are wearing their 1993 look, which is pretty awful in a lot of their cases (like Namor and Scarlet Witch, for two).

    But, naturally, the Shroud is on there.

    Little mistake, not a big deal, but what amuses me is that 11 years later, Marvel decides to begin to collect Kurt Busiek and George Perez’s Avengers comics into a series of hardcovers called Avengers Assemble.

    To celebrate the first one, they asked Smith to re-color the poster for inclusion in the hardcover using computer color. Smith decide to fix an 11-year old mistake and actually used some computer wizardry to REMOVE the Shroud from the poster!

    Check it out (Dynamic Forces put out a lithograph of the revised poster, using the humorous “41st Anniversary” tagline)…

    Thanks to Tom Smith for the lowdown on the change!
