On The Convention Floor…
By Mary Brickthrower & J.D.
As luck would have it, George Perez was there early! Along side him was
inker Tom Smith, so I pulled out my copy of JLA/Avengers #1 and got them
both to sign it. George also accommodated me by signing my copy of
Tales of the Teen Titans # 44 which introduced Nightwing. George was
very energetic and it was nice to see him in high spirits early in the
morning when most people weren’t even at the con yet. He was talking
with Marvel editor Tom Breevport so I didn’t stand around ogling. As I
was walking away, an announcer welcomed everyone into the con.
came running in frantically looking for something. As Mary so eloquently
stated above, it was indeed the Jim Lee line. It was scary to see
people running that fast, especially since Jim wasn’t even in the
building yet! I went back over to Koop’s area and met back up with Mary
for my Venti Café Mocha…ahhhhh!
Make no mistake about it.
If there was a "belle of the ball" at the Baltimore con, it was George
Perez. Sure Jim Lee packed them in on the Saturday that he was there.
But George was there on both Saturday and Sunday, early both days and
with the exception of panels, was at his booth all day. Everyone wanted
to talk with him or take a glance of this comic legend! (As seen in my
photo of artist Michael Avon Oeming watching Perez from afar, or
writer/artist Billy Tucci holding up a copy of the 200,000+ copy selling

head sketch from George, which was a miracle since he hurt his hand

ITEM: Baltimore The Merrier
Despite the high winds and floods provided by Hurricane Isabel,
Baltimore Comicon was a roaring success. Held September 20 and 21,
the show was the launch pad for More Fund Comics, an amazing
anthology of comics by dozens of creators including Frank Cho,
Brandon Petersen, Scott Kurtz, Mark Schultz, John Gallagher, Steve
Conley, John Romita Jr, & John Romita Sr., Mike Oeming, and many,
many more. Over 500 copies of the book were sold at the show,
including the exclusive, limited edition Frank Cho variant cover,
featuring the title character from his upcoming series "Summer
In addition to More Fund, Jim Lee signed all day on Saturday for
crowds numbering in the hundreds. Following Lee's marathon
signing, the More Fund Auction happened, where the Fund auctioned George Perez's cover to More Fund, Steve Conley's art from the
interiors, a one of a kind Frank Miller banner, and much more,
raising $5,000 for the Fund. All told Baltimore Comicon raised
$8,600 for free speech!

Baltimore Comic-Con Recap, Part 1
Posted: Tuesday, September 23
By: Tim O'Shea
Not surprisingly, the guest line-up may have been a major influence on
the attendance upswing. One of the bigger names (who was only able to
attend on Saturday) was Jim Lee, whose popularity has only grown more
thanks to the soon to conclude Hush (with Jeph Loeb) on DC’s Batman. Lee
was there in support of DC, Wildstorm, and most importantly, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund,
Lee’s presence at the con was in fact, courtesy of the CBLDF. The other
names that attracted autograph lines on the Lee scale included George
Perez (hot on the heels of the release of JLA/Avengers 1), Geoff Johns,
Scott Kolins, Walter Simonson, Mike Kunkel, Mark Waid and of course,
local favorite, Frank Cho.
Given the plethora of negative press that CrossGen has garnered in
recent weeks (given their admitted financial challenges), I was
pleasantly surprised to see a strong turnout for the CrossGen panel on
Saturday morning. The panel consisted of Ron Marz (serving as host)
along with Brandon Peterson and George Perez. At the outset, Marz
acknowledged the fiscal “hiccups” that CrossGen is currently enduring.
All three men remain optimistic about the long-term prospects of
CrossGen, with Perez going so far as seemingly endorsing the company
with his praise, acknowledging that he has far less to lose (given his
recent “freelance” success with Avengers/JLA) than the 100+ families who
look to CrossGen for salary, benefits. As Perez noted, that if they’re
willing to stay committed, he cannot help but believe in the company as
well. Marz is not viewing CrossGen’s current plight with rose-colored
glasses by any means, noting “we’re not out of the woods yet.”
That being said, CrossGen is clearly trying to turn some negatives into
positives, as Peterson noted at the panel. The shake-up, as Peterson
described it, gave CrossGen a chance to stop and look at the big
picture, as they prepared/planned the upcoming War, which will be drawn
by Perez. In fact, Marz presented the first issue’s script to Perez at
the panel. In discussing the War, it became readily apparent that Perez
would not be returning to his monthly assignment on Solus, once The War
wraps up. Why that is remains uncertain. As part of the War, CrossGen
has acknowledged that some books will stop publishing, while other, new
ones may begin. Marz emphasized that unlike DC/Marvel “event” comic
miniseries (where toys [characters] are taken from the shelf, but then
“returned” to the same place at the story’s end)—with War “all the rules
are off—for good, dramatic reasons…people tend to die in wars.”

A scheduling change meant that I missed the JLA/Avengers panel (its time
was flip-flopped with Jose Villarrubia’s art lecture). This led to some
great comedy, as I sat through the thoroughly enjoyable Writers 101
panel (more on that in a minute) and stayed around for Avengers/JLA.
When a swarm of college age students sat around me, I was bewildered.
While I know the book had been a success, I assumed it was more
successful with the ages 30 to 40 demographics. When Villarrubia walked
in and there was no sign of Perez or editor Tom Brevoort, I knew I was
in the wrong place.

The main hall stayed packed for most of Saturday, with a particular peak
of frenzy during the Jim (Batman) Lee signing at the CBLDF table (see
Vog #5 at above link for footage). Many attendees and exhibitors who met
Jim for the first time at the show commented on what an incredibly nice
guy he is, and were impressed that he has managed to remain so humble
and patient despite the hundreds of adoring fans champing at the bit for
his signature. Other tables among the many that drew consistent crowds
were Insight Studio Group, George (JLA/AVENGERS) Perez, Walter (ORION,
ELRIC) Simonson, Mark (FANTASTIC FOUR/SUPERMAN: BIRTHRIGHT) Waid and
Matt (GRENDEL, TRINITY) Wagner.
Kids, kids and more kids were at the show, which made this alterna-girl
feel a bit weird selling randy titles like TRUE PORN and FANCY FROGLIN
at her table, but the parents accompanying said tots seemed
philosophical (and a few snuck back later--sans young ones--to purchase
some of the offending material, for closer inspection).
At the end of Saturday, the CBLDF auction (see a list of auctioned items here)
drew a decent crowd, although Charles Brownstein’s impromptu offering
of a date with Dean Haspiel to the highest bidder didn’t go as well as
might be expected, since the crowd was almost exclusively male. See what
you missed, ladies? According to Brownstein, the auction raised about
$5,400 including $1,000 for the George Perez "More Fund" cover and
$1,500 for the Lee/Perez jam.

Crossgen at Baltimore Comic Con
posted 09-20-2003 09:51 PM
Ron Marz, Brandon Peterson, and George Perez made it to the Baltimore
Comic Convention this weekend, bringing with them a stripped down
Crossgen booth apparently designed for smaller conventions. There were a
few revealations, be forewarned of possible spoilers ahead!
The three of them held a panel discussion on Crossgen today, much of
which was spent discussing "The War" miniseries. Ron Marz (who is
writing the miniseries) made use of the event to ceremoniously hand over
the script to the first issue to George Perez (who will be the artist
on the series). George complained that there weren't enough characters
in the script, but that he would change that. They also handed out
copies of the Call to Arms poster at the conclusion of the panel.
Not much was revealed about the miniseries. It will be three issues,
each 38 pages in length, with the first issue coming out in late May
2004. Incidentally, in a later conversation I had with George, he
confirmed that it is Sephie depicted in the print.
They spoke a little bit about the financial troubles facing Crossgen,
which have yet to be resolved. They admitted that morale is off, but the
issues are being completed on time even if they aren't being published
on time. George said he is committed to remaining at Crossgen, despite
repeated efforts to get him to defect, however it is unlikely he will
Solus after doing The War (on the other hand, Solus may not return after the miniseries).
Some odds and ends: There will be a second round of DVDs out before Christmas, possibly including Chimera. Heroclix
is interested in doing a full set of Crossgen figures. Brandon did the
cover art for the convention program, a great drawing of Arwyn holding
the American flag. George did the Hulk cover art for the More Fund
charity anthology (regular edition - there was also a limited edition
with a Frank Cho cover), while Ron and Brandon collaborated on a story
for the anthology. I asked Ron if it was true that Mystic was due to be
cancelled - he wouldn't confirm or deny it but said it would be
published through next Spring at least. Right now Ron is working on the
crossover story between The Path and Way of the Rat. Everyone is
delighted with the script for the Way of the Rat movie, Ron did indicate
that the script writers have come up with an different take on how Po
Po started talking. It sounds like Chimera has a movie deal already.
Crossgen expatriates Mark Waid and Joshua Middleton were also at the

I had a great time at the con. George wasn't sketching due to Carpel
Tunnel Syndrome (Note: Brace in Photo) but he was signing. I was there
both days and had George sign by Crisis TPB on Saturday and on Sunday a
copy of the More Fun Comic and two copies of JLA/AVENGERS. Even though
George wasn't sketching he was signing up a storm and posing for photos.
Everybody Loves George.

My Baltimore Comicon Report
posted 9/21/03 7:29 PM
Just got back from the Baltimore Comicon 2003 and, as usual, I had one
hell of a time (and hell on my finances). Here's what I can remember
from the con regarding Perez:
That's all I can think of right now. I'll see how much will get back to me later on in the week.
- Crossgen's "The War"
is going to be 3 issues long and it's going to be written by Ron Marz.
The first issue is going to be solicted in May of 2004. It's going to
resolve many storylines in many of the Crossgen titles.
- Perez is jubelent about JLA/Avengers first issue success. He says that he can finally clear out is debts and then some. The selling of the art alone is going to provide his wife with a new car! He also is very glad that this series is totally going to be for the fans.
- As of today. 1/4 of issue 4 of JLA/Avengers
is pen & inked. It looks like it will meet the Dec 31st release
date. Perez is very commited to meeting the deadline so that all of the
issues will be released before 2004.
- There is talk of about what format the collected edition is going to be. Perez said that DC is talking to put it into an "absolute" HC format (which I will lobby to no end!). They also said that the prior JLA/Avengers art might be printed in the collected edition as well.
- Perez needs the cover to issue 3 back because he needs to draw 4 more characters in it! It took 3 weeks for him to draw it. Tom Smith was asking fan at the con to find him color references for some of the characters!
- I did get one nugget of exclusive info. Hawkeye and Black Canary will meet in issue 3.

I apologize for this extra newsletter this week, but my eldest daughter,
Rowan, just called me from Baltimore, and asked me to please, please
let everyone know that the Baltimore Comic-Con scheduled for this
weekend is still going to be held. Rowan reports that a few of the
streets near the inner harbor are flooded, but that everything is just
fine in the vicinity of the convention hotel. If you live anywhere near
Maryland, and are looking for a fun time this weekend, I highly suggest a
trip to Baltimore. Aside from all of the other events detailed in the
article I copied from Gemstone's weekly SCOOP newsletter, I thought I might also mention that Rowan will be hosting several events for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund at the show, including a benefit auction. She's quite a good auctioneer, so that event should be a fun time for everyone.

Tim O’Shea: How did it come to pass that More Fund Comics will debut at Baltimore?
Marc Nathan: More Fund Comics, an anthology that will greatly benefit
the CBLDF will debut at the show this year. We made a lot of money for
the fund last year and wanted to top it. One night in January, myself
Frank Cho and John Gallagher and a few others were having dinner and we
spoke on how to go about beating the total raised last year. John had
just completed his collection of Buzzboy and was tuned in to make a
trade. The idea to ask mainstream creators to fill the book was a
reflection of our annual guest list. Frank got on the phone, I asked
George Perez, who received his Defender of Liberty award in a ceremony in Bonnie’s restaurant,
Charles Brownstein got permission from Marvel for the Hulk cover and
big name creators with stories came flowing in. At the show, we will
also have an auction for some of the art, including the Perez cover. We
hope to make a zillion dollars for the Fund. Frank Cho and Scott Kurtz
will be launching a new strip in the book that will make the book
important for years to come.
