BCC: Guest of Honor George Perez Spotlight Panel
by Jim Gibbons, Contributing Writer, posted: 13 minutes ago
While voices on bullhorns drifted over the heads of the shorts-clad
crowd participating in the Baltimore Running Festival outside Charm
City's convention center, a second crowd of people bogged down with
backpacks and long boxes made their way inside. On a drizzle-filled
Saturday, Baltimore Comic-Con had begun.
Among the first events to pull people out from lines in Artist Alley
was the Spotlight on George Perez panel, highlighting the legendary
artist and Guest of Honor's 35 years in the comics industry. Known for
his work on titles like "New Teen Titans," "Crisis on Infinite Earths,"
"Avengers," "Wonder Woman," and most recently "Final Crisis: Legion of
Three Worlds" with Geoff Johns, Perez - in a floral print shirt with a
Diet Coke in hand - sat in front of a packed room full of comic fans.
Though the thin, red riser walls of the panel room allowed plenty of
ambient noise - and three bellowing PA announcements about a young girl
named Grace Burns who had been separated from her family - to drift
into the panel, fans sat with all eyes on Perez.
Perez began with some news for Titans aficionados. Though he said he
is turning down more work than he can possibly accept right now,
Perez's parter-in-crime Marv Wolfman apparently found the plot to a
Titans graphic novel entitled "Games" that was lost long ago. The book
will be out by October of 2010 and will run 120 pages.

Comics fans prepare to suit up for weekend
Armchair superheroes, villains ready for Baltimore Comic-Con
by Chris Kaltenbach |
October 8, 2009
be seen riding the light rail this weekend, don't be alarmed. Baltimore
Comic-Con is in town, with a hook that should attract even more of a
costumed crowd than usual. Instead of just getting stared at or having
her picture taken incessantly, this year's Supergirl could win $1,000.
"So many people come dressed up anyway, on their own," says convention
organizer Marc Nathan, who's eager to see how many Supermen, Wonder
Women and Fantastic Fours will show, attracted by the convention's
contest. "If we can get a couple hundred people in costume down here.
... Think about it: A kid comes down to a comics show and thinks he met
the real Batman. Why wouldn't that be great?"
Of course, there will be more to the con than a bunch of people in
masks and capes. More than 100 comic book writers and editors are
scheduled to show up, including Neal Adams, the definitive artist on
and a host of other DC Comics characters from the 1970s, and George
Perez, who has reimagined and re-energized comic book characters
(including Wonder Woman, a character he resurrected from comic book
limbo in the early 1970s) and even entire comic book universes, through
his work on DC's "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Just about all the guests
will be signing autographs and answering questions throughout the
