    George Perez: I don't read comics!

    THE BALTIMORE COMIC-CON 2006 (9-10 Sep 2006), Baltimore, MD
    So I went to the Baltimore Comic-Con on Saturday, and at one of the DC Comics panels, a table full of creators was asked to name their favorite comic at present.

    "I honestly don't read comics anymore," said star artist George Perez, who has drawn nearly everyone for DC, Marvel and a number of indies.

    Collective gasp from the audience, mostly large, grown men dragging short boxes on suitcase carts — a few of them stuffed into super-hero costumes.

    Almost apologetically — and with his usual good cheer — Perez explained that he read comics when he was young, of course. Now he's in his early 50s, bald as a cueball, with a trim white beard. He'll always be grateful to the industry for providing him with a living, but he has other interests in life at this point.

    "When I'm not drawing comics, I want to spend time with my wife," Perez said.

    "Hi, Layne (and Peri and everyone else in Toth Land):

    I just returned from a convention in Atlanta and just opened the package with your awesome gift. Boy, was I ever surprised and impressed. My wife Carol was also impressed. I had to remind her that the cover was based on the one from issue 8 of THE NEW TEEN TITANS-- the issue I was working on when I had my first date with her. It really is a very special gift and I will definitely treasure it. I will send you one signed copy as you asked when I return from another convention in Baltimore this coming weekend (busy, busy, busy). I also think that putting one up for the Pittsburgh Comicon 2007 Make-A-Wish Art Auction is a splendid idea (with BOTH our autographs!) and I'll set one aside for that as well.

    Thank you so much for your kindness and friendship,

    Uncle George"

    We debated on whether to link to this gem, found while Technorati surfing for the Baltimore con, or not, since the writer is obviously an attention seeking jerk, but we wanted to remind everyone that what you read on the internet stays on the internet. Perhaps the fact that this bottom-feeding commentary was directed at George Perez, one of the most gracious, giving and kind-hearted professionals in our field — someone who has battled health problems to come to shows and spend time with his fans — well, maybe that just got our dander up.

    So enter, if you dare, The World Of Chad :

    George Perez was next on my list. I almost got right up next to him, but before I did some douchebag from an online tv show interviewed him taking up all his time. After a few minutes, Ryan and I sabatoged his interview, by singing the themes to Filmations Ghost Busters, Solar Man and Defenders of the Earth. Annoying the shows host, his wife says to me "Can you boys stop it?". As she was putting her stuff away, her boyfriend thanked Mr. Perez for helping them, I farted right in her face. And I’m glad I did, because now Perez is saying to everyone "I can't sign anymore today. I'm just drawing" That bastard and his ugly bitch wife screwed up and wasted my time. Fuck them both. "C’mon, I waited in line for you, man. You owe to me and everyone in line." "Sorry! No more! I'm only sketching" F*cking a**hole. If it wasn't for the fans, he'd be fucking broke.

    ... There is indeed a fucking asshole here, and it isn't George Perez. So if you see Chad wandering around at a con, we suggest you give him the reception he so richly deserves, what with him being king of the universe and all.

    SEPTEMBER 13 , 2006


    On Saturday night DC honcho Dan Didio set up a special dinner party which Jessie and I attended. A great time was had by all, even if the noise level in the small room did prompt Matt Wagner to suggest we keep it down to a dull roar. By the time we got back to the hotel, I headed for the Harvey Awards banquet. I missed the dinner, as planned, but got there in plenty of time to see George win a Lifetime Achievement award for all his incredible deeds. George is not only a fantastic artist as we all know, and a great friend as well as a wonderful guest at a con - nobody who meets him doesn't leave entertained - but he also spends more time giving to comic related charities than anyone else I know. Congrats on your second major award in two weeks, George. You more than deserve it.

    THE BALTIMORE COMIC-CON 2006 (9-10 Sep 2006)
    Wrapping up the portion of the Saturday programming, DCU Executive Editor Dan Didio played host to a full room for the “DC: One Year Greater” panel at Baltimore Comic-Con. Panelists for the presentation included: Marv Wolfman, George Perez, Bill Willingham, JG Jones, Mark Waid, Barry Kitson, Bb Wayne, and Jann Jones.


    Q: Why didn’t you kill Nightwing in Infinite Crisis?
    Waid: Because Geoff Johns and I took turns holding a big club over Dan once we learned he wanted too.
    Perez: And speaking for guys who actually earn residuals off of Nightwing, we like him too.

    Q: Why was it even considered?

    Didio: We were looking for the big death in Infinite Crisis – the big moment. We were looking for something that would have equal import and merit and weight in this story. One of the things I’ve been proven wrong about is that I had felt that Dick Grayson was a redundant character – Tim Drake had filled his role as Robin, he would never be Batman, so where could he go?

    My big fear was that Nightwing would get older than Batman. The thought was that if we removed Dick form the equation that would allow Bruce Wayne to stand alone as Batman, and to firmly establish Tim Drake as Robin. So now – Marv is showing us why we like him, his place in the DC Universe, and more importantly, his potential in the DC Universe.

    THE BALTIMORE COMIC-CON 2006 (9-10 Sep 2006)
    George Pérez, fan favorite artist who has drawn just about every super-hero ever created, and John Romita Sr., whose dashing linework helped define the Marvel style and helped make Spider-Man a pop culture icon, were the first two recipients of the Hero Initiative Lifetime Achievement Award, given at this year's Harvey Awards.


    And of course, there are this year's recipients:

    George Pérez is arguably one of the most popular and influential artists in American comic books in the 1980s. He is known for his clean, dynamic, yet ornate style, with a strong emphasis on group superhero action scenes. Pérez came to prominence when he started illustrating The Avengers for Marvel Comics, starting with vol. 1 #141. In the 1970s, Pérez illustrated several other Marvel books, including Fantastic Four.

    Pérez soon moved over to work for DC Comics. Following a popular stint on Justice League of America, Pérez's career took off with the launch of DC's very successful title, The New Teen Titans. Pérez followed this with DC's 50th-anniversary event, Crisis on Infinite Earths, which purportedly featured every single character DC owned in a story which radically restructured the DC universe's continuity. Since then, he has drawn just about every character and every genre in comics, and continues breaking new ground as an influential and sought-after talent.

    Saturday night saw the debut of the Harvey Awards Ceremony at the Baltimore Comic-Con, and was a success by all accounts.

    The evening began with an appetizer reception allowing guests to mingle prior to the dinner which featured a Maryland Grill. As the dinner portion of the evening drew to a close, a selection of Kyle Baker’s “The Bakers” cartoons were shown on the two screens in the banquet hall, and Paul McSpadden, a member of the Executive Committee of the Harvey Awards gave the welcoming remarks and thanked the sponsors for the awards. In closing, McSpadden introduced Kyle Baker who served as the Master of Ceremonies.


    Additionally, Hero Initiative presented two Lifetime Achievement Awards at the ceremony, kicking off a new tradition for the organization. The awards were presented to George Perez (presented by Jim McLauchlin) and John Romita Sr. (presented by John Romita Jr.).

    A few minutes later, masquerade hosts George Perez and Peter David announced a "new celebrity judge" was stepping in. As we sat in the lounge waiting to see what sort of hijinks would ensue... we suddenly saw Denise in a camera-filling shot as she turned to the howling audience and defiantly raised both her middle fingers in a tastefully effective gesture of goodwill. I cannot tell you how in love with this woman I was at that moment.

    Little in the way of announcements were revealed in Saturday's DC Comics "One Year Greater" panel at Baltimore Comic-Con, but panelists found plenty to talk about: hints of a Superman family coming to "Action Comics," Executive Editor Dan Didio's reasons to kill Dick Grayson, and, perhaps for the first time, how Bruce Wayne could have been like Paris Hilton. As the panelists loaded in, DiDio beamed "This could be the last panel of the year." Moments later he adds, "Or my career!" Joining Didio was a packed lineup of creators and staff, Jan Jones, Coordinating Editor for DC Comics, Kurt Busiek ("Superman", "Aquaman"), Marv Wolfman ("Nightwing"), George Perez ("Brave and the Bold"), Barry Kitson ("Legion of Superheroes"), Mark Waid ("52," "Legion of Superheroes"), J.G. Jones ("52," "All-Star Batgirl"), Bill Willingham ("Fables," "Shadowpact"), DC Vice-President of Sales Bob Wayne, and Jan Jones' assistant, the stuffed Hiram the Alpaca. Didio told the audience he wanted the hour to be an extension of the earlier DC Nation panel .


    Pressed further on Nightwing, Didio said he was looking for the big death. "'Crisis on Infinite Earths' had two big deaths, Flash and Supergirl. We needed something that had equal merit and worth." Didio added that he thought Nightwing was becoming a redundant character - replaced by Robin, and never to be Batman. When the consensus amongst creators became "we love Dick Grayson," Didio's reaction was "write better stories about Dick Grayson." He said that's what's coming with Wolfman's run.

    Comic fans to flock to Convention this weekend
    by Tyler Waldman

    THE BALTIMORE COMIC-CON 2006 (9-10 Sep 2006), Baltimore, MD
    Most of today's college students grew up with comic books. Many can say they grew up reading the exploits of their idols, be they Superman, Spider-Man, or other famous costumed heroes. It's comic books that are the focus of the annual Baltimore Comic-Con, to be held this Saturday and Sunday at the Baltimore Convention Center.

    Comic-Con boasts many special guests, such as Lou Ferrigno, who originally played the titular green protagonist in the 1978-1982 "The Incredible Hulk" series.

    Also present will be Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada, George Perez, a writer and artist best known for "The Avengers," "Justice League of America," and "The New Teen Titans" (on which the recent cartoon series Teen Titans was based), and Scott Kurtz, creator of the popular Web-comic "PvP."

    "It's pretty thrilling," event promoter Mark Nathan said. "During this show we have people who come every year. They want to be there and we want them to be there. They're like family. But then, as the summer progressed, some guests just fell into our lap. Some of it was luck, some of it was just hard work."

     From George Pérez
    This is a list of the comics conventions I will be attending in 2006. Some are "rain-check" appearances for shows that I had to cancel in 2005 due to health reasons. In some cases this puts me in a position of attending some conventions on back-to-back weekends, but it couldn't be helped. I hope to be able to get together with a lot of my fans next year and will be warming up my autograph hand.
    February 24th - 26th: MegaCon, Orlando, FL
    April 21st - 23rd: Pittsburgh Comicon, Monroeville, PA
    April 28th - 30th: Paradise Toronto Comicon, Toronto, Canada
    May 19th - 21st: Motor City Con, Novi, Michigan
    June 30th - July 2nd: Heroes Con, Charlotte, NC
    July 20th - 23rd: Comicon International, San Diego, CA
    September 1st- 4th: Dragon Con, Atlanta, GA
    September 9th - 10th: Baltimore Comic Con, Baltimore, MD
    I will also be attending the October Portland, OR show for Second Genesis (another rain-check from 2005) but I still have no confirmed date.

    That should keep me busy for the year in between issues of THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD.
