    Friday's Wish List

    (excerpt)

    Okay... this is starting to get a little weird.

    It has been pointed out to me that whenever I reminisce about something, then right around the same time... it suddenly reappears in print. A new trade collection, or a new printing, or ...something.I'll be talking about something cool I remember like Omega the Unknown and a friend will say, "You know Marvel just put that out in paperback, right?" In other column venues or even just shooting the breeze with pals, I have, at one time or another over the last couple of years, wished for collections of Celestial Madonna, The Avengers-Defenders War, the Serpent Crown storyline, the Kirby Captain America, the Kirby Jimmy Olsen, the George Perez FF, the Englehart Captain America and the Englehart/Brunner Dr. Strange... and all of them appeared on bookshelves.

    FF Visionaries: George Perez Is A Tricky Trade
    Wednesday, August 03, 2005

    (excerpt)

    Furthermore, to those who say Marvel is just putting out a quick-and-dirty paperback to capitalize on both the FF's and Perez's popularity, I'll point out the reprinted text page from FF #176 where Roy Thomas explains the origin of the Impossible Man story -- a bit of behind-the-scenes information that has almost nothing to do with George Perez beyond his happening to be the issue's artist. (Was the name of the book FF Visionaries: Roy Thomas?) If Marvel's paperback people can take the time to make sure Roy the Boy's essay is included, they can type up quick synopses of the narrative gaps.

    Finally, looking at the cover-gallery page, I noticed even from thumbnails that it looked like Jack Kirby was doing FF covers around this time -- and sure enough, a quick trip to GCD confirmed it. Accordingly, bigger cover reproductions would have been nice. Just another reason to seek out those back issues, I guess.

    FANTASTIC FOUR VISIONARIES: GEORGE PEREZ VOLUME 1 (June 2005)

    If you can name it, chances are George Perez has drawn it, from Marvel's first family to DC's teen team supreme. Now collected for the first time, two of Perez's seminal works make it to trade in June with FANTASTIC FOUR VISIONAIRES: GEORGE PEREZ vol 1 (collecting his 1970s work on the book) and NEW TEEN TITANS: WHO IS DONNA TROY? (featuring Perez and a variety of other artists.) Here's what Perez had to say about dominating the bookshelves…

    WIZARD: What's your favorite Fantastic Four tale that you drew?
    PEREZ: The issue with the Impossible Man [#176]. The fun part was drawing myself and [writer] Roy Thomas - boy, did I look good in those days! - and having my comic book self talking to Jack Kirby whom I had never met and wouldn't meet for the first time until 1985.

    What was best about working on FF?
    It was a nice learning experience for me. I got to add another notch in my gun as far as establishing myself as an artist who really likes doing group books. I was doing Avengers and Inhumans around the same time.

    A standout New Teen Titans tale you penciled - #38, "Who is Donna Troy?" -will be included in the new collection. So who is Donna Troy to you?
    I think Donna Troy will always be a feminine ideal who's basically the girl next door that everyone just has to fall in love with. She was rather perfect in her own way - strong, intelligent, giving, loving and of course, gorgeous.

    But who wins in a fight between Donna Troy and the Thing?
    In the long run, it would probably be Donna because Ben would be a little reluctant to use all his strength at first on a female character, despite his experience with Thundra and everyone else. That one brief hesitation is all she needs.

    What will your next big project be after the Teen Titans: Games graphic novel?
    Nothing specific at this point because Games won't be finished until the end of the year. A lot of people have been coming up with a lot of proposals. I'm very flattered that at my age, I'm still being considered the pretty girl at the prom. [Chuckles] it's very humbling and I'm gratified.

    FANTASTIC FOUR VISIONARIES: GEORGE PEREZ VOLUME 1 (June 2005)






    I am currently inking the incredible Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on a project written by Phil Jimenez, who is also the cover penciler, with me inking Phil. Unfortunately, beyond that, I'm not at liberty to reveal what the project is so I've been calling it "The EZ Company Project" since all three creators share the same last two letters in our family names. DC Comics should be making an announcement relatively soon and it will be a relief to finally be able to talk about it openly.

    Contrary to solicitations I have indeed drawn the cover for FALLEN ANGELS #20. Due to a mix-up in the scheduling it initially appeared that I couldn't do the cover, so the regular team was told to go ahead and draw the cover. When Peter David found out about that he reminded the editor that the deadlines had been pushed back and even though the book had been solicited with another cover, Peter figured few would be bummed out to find that there was a Pérez cover after all.

    I have also drawn a cover for a Marvel Visionaries book spotlighting my 1970's run on FANTASTIC FOUR. Tom Smith colored that piece and, as usual, did a wonderful job.

    I am currently drawing a variant cover for Top Cow's CITY OF HEROES #1 and will be drawing the cover for a CITY OF HEROES novel called "Web of Arachnos". This should be the first of three covers for a series of CoH novels. And since I just mentioned Top Cow, I should also announce that I will be participating in a special 10th Anniversary edition of WITCHBLADE. I will be drawing three pages written by Ron Marz. And as I draw those pages I will be filmed by a video crew for TwoMorrows' DVD companion to its MODERN MASTERS book series.

    There have been other offers, including some covers for Dynamic Forces' RED SONYA and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I also will be providing a cover for DF's STORYTELLER, yet another retrospective on my career. (I am definitely being over-exposed). A cover for ForceWerks' B.A.B.E. FORCE is also on my schedule. There have been other one-shots I've been offered that I'm not yet free to discuss, or yet to accept, but after "The EZ Company Project" I will be primarily focusing my attention on completing GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Inker Mike Perkins has already started on some pages and Tom Smith has 30 pages ready to start so it's up to me to get busy so that Marv Wolfman can start dialoguing the first half of the book.

    As for conventions this year, here's my schedule for 2005 so far.
    February 25-27: Mega Con in Orlando, FL.
    March 18-20: Wizard World Los Angeles in Long Beach, CA
    April 22-24: Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville, PA (I even provided the T-Shirt art)
    July 14-17: Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA
    September 13-17: Comic Book Festival in Avilés, Spain

    Those are the confirmed shows. There is a possibility of more, but I'm trying to limit my time away from the drawing board this year.
