    ACCENT ON THE FIRST 'E' (1977)

    I have a question about Accent on the First 'E' by George. I wanted to know what is the real story on this books printings and a possible value? I heard that there is less then 600 copies of this book because of a flood at the publishers warehouse. Is this true? Also, I have a signed copy what would this be worth in your opinion because I can't find any selling anywhere?

    Any info would be much appreciated.

    ACCENT ON THE FIRST 'E' (1977)
    Tuesday, June 16, 2009

    We’ll return to our scheduled saga of my time with Star Trek in Hollywood in a couple of posts. For now, there are a couple of other things I want to talk about. One of them is the man I consider the single greatest living artist in comic books: The one and only George Perez!

    Here’s the wrap-around cover of the portfolio book Perez: Accent on the First E, which I ordered through the mail in high school. Click on the image to get the full effect! This early rendering of the Fantastic Four, the Silver Surfer, and Galactus demonstrates, even at the dawn of his professional career, everything that George’s work is about. I still have my copy of Accent, signed by George himself. At the time I was heavily into using Prismacolor pencils and I colored some of the drawings in the book, which are mostly black-and-white pencil reproductions. I wish now I hadn’t done that. It’s one of those things you do when you’re very young and not thinking about what you’re doing.

    George is one of the last great “classical” comic book artists, the guys who came directly off the influence of the pioneers like Jack Kirby, et al. He names the long-running Superman artist Curt Swan, as well as Kirby, among his major influences. George is also one of the last Marvel artists to have a nickname. In the first generation of Marvel Comics, one of the ways that the company formed bonds and camaraderie with fans was by dubbing its creative talent with nicknames: Stan “The Man” Lee, Jack “King” Kirby, Rascally Roy Thomas, Jazzy John Romita, etc. George was very fittingly dubbed “The Pacesetter” and did his first major work on The Avengers, his favorite Marvel book, with writer Stainless Steve Englehart. (The name “Pacesetter” survives today as the title of the official magazine devoted to George’s work. The only other comic book artist with a regular magazine specifically about him is Jack Kirby himself. A couple of Pacesetter issues contain articles that I wrote about George’s incredible work on the 1979 X-Men Annual and his career breakthrough on the Marvel adaptation of the film Logan’s Run.)

    GEORGE PEREZ has drawn just about every major Marvel and DC character at some point in his amazing career- a good friend and great talent.

  • This conceptual piece for a planned Sword & Sorcery tale called "The Legend of Kazo-Nal" appeared in the 1977 Bio/Artbook PEREZ: ACCENT ON THE FIRST 'E'

    Andy Mangels: So what happened then? You were going to do a DEATH SQUAD series with Bob Layton and you started on a graphic novel called DEATH TRAIN."
    George Pérez: "TERROR TRAIN. Actually TERROR TRAIN was a short story I wrote when I was in high school. I can no longer find the original manuscript. A very pre-splatter movie type of splatter story. It was done very much in that type of style way before any splatter movies ever showed; I didn't know about Herschel or Lewis at the time…

    …As for DEATH SQUAD, I was already a pro at that point and I was doing an origins story of the DEATH SQUAD with Bob Layton for Omnibus Publishing, which had already produced the PEREZ ACCENT ON THE FIRST E book. But Omnibus never went anywhere; the PEREZ book itself, due to bad management, bad marketing, bad timing, didn't go anywhere - I assume only about 600 ever went out to any audience; it's a very rare book now. So DEATH SQUAD totally fell apart.

    From Nick Rivera Jr
  • George Pérez and Nick Rivera Jr, at the NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL SCI-FI & FANTASY CREATORS CONVENTION (30 June 2002)
  • George Pérez honestly has make a strong impact in my life. He is the reason I draw and paint today.

    In 1984 my father gave me a copy of ''Accent on the First E'' by George Perez, I was 4 years old... and since then all I do is draw aside from my real job. I traced every page of that book cover to cover, every single day when I was 5,6 years old.

    As I got older I simply refused to trace knowing that George didn't trace the drawings... so I started to draw them by eye, literally mastering every detail of each page.

    If you've seen this book before you'll know that it's an awesome black and white showcase book if Pérez's early art. From then on.... I would draw everything in sight.... tables, cars, faces....... everything. Trying every day to be a master at detail like George.

    Today I draw and paint as a side job and it was all because of ''Accent on the First E''....that book rocked my life!

    I still have it till this day along with literally thousands of other George Pérez comics and posters......and I just wanted to express my love and respect for the man's talent and what he has inspired me to do.

    Well I'm happy to tell you that I met him at the New York Sci-fi and Fantasy Art Show at Madison Square Garden on the 30th of June.

    Hahahaha.... like a little punk I almost cried. LOLOL picture a 22 year old at a show crying over a comic book artist. But I held it in. I let out one tear when I got home.

    The show was great. I little small but George Pérez was all I cares about. Wow... all types of people were there... Adam West, Billy Dee Williams... Virgil from wrestling... Stacey Walker(((hot fantasy art Model))) and a whole lot of other top name comic book people. But you know..... I honestly didn't give a !@#$% about those people. Mr. Pérez was the only one I cared about. He took a picture with me and autographed 3 books. The man was simply amazing. I wanted to stay with him there till the show was done....but I didn't want him to think I was a nut. LOL

    So I walked around the place to loosen up and found myself walking in circles to George's table over and over and over again. LOLOLOL.... what a memory. All the other artist..... I didn't even say hello to them or even ask for an autograph. It's like those people were all shadows.

    I was that shocked.

    Well it was a pleasure meeting George Pérez and I have the memories to enjoy forever. Or until I hopefully meet him again.
