    • DC removing comics at some Walmart already? From Vu Is DC removing their comics at some Walmart location already? It could be that some people are buying up all copies of #2 or stealing the display boxes. >>> Xeno @lambrose_xeno writes: I had that one of my local Walmarts had taken down the display for the DC comic & asked when there might be more & was told they hadn't seen the rep in some time. I went to another Walmart & they had the older (# 1s) as well as the #2; they also had two covers of Showcase.

    George Perez first broke into comics in the early '70s, drawing backups for Marvel's magazine line. Soon, Perez was gaining enough attention that he was given one of Marvel's bigger titles, "The Avengers." Perez was a hit on the book, and for most of the '70s, Perez kept busy on a number of assignments for Marvel, including a run on "Fantastic Four" with Marv Wolfman.

    Towards the beginning of the '80s, Perez was already doing work for DC Comics, drawing "Justice League of America." When his old "Fantastic Four" partner, Wolfman, made the move to DC, Perez and Wolfman got together to launch the "New Teen Titans."

    The book was a smash hit, both critically and commercially, and Perez and Wolfman were instant comic book stars.

    "Titans" was the perfect mixture of Perez' strengths - clean, but still dynamic and just a little ornate. In addition, Perez had soon gained a reputation as being one of the best artists out there for drawing large groups of heroes (note the team books he worked on - "Avengers," "Justice League," "Titans" - he loved the group shots).

    On "Titans," Perez honed his skills, becoming more and more detailed.

    His ability to draw large groups was put to the test when, in 1985, he joined Wolfman on "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the massive DC crossover that changed the DC Universe forever and remains a favorite amongst comic readers. It also gave Perez the chance to draw lots and lots and lots of characters.
