First I wanted to say that stopping by to
see George Perez was on of the highlights of the con for me. I also loved him as
an emcee for the masquerade. Anyways, if you would like them here are the
pictures my friend took of me in my Wonder Girl costume with George.

Continuing at Dragon*Con
Posted by Bob Greenberger on September 7, 2009
was an interesting day at the convention as Deb and I largely followed
different paths. I tried to attend one panel, only to discover it had
been moved to Monday so we wound up checking out the dealer’s rooms
together for a bit.
Our evening was spent with the Davids, and a few dozen of their
friends, during their annual rib and chicken dinner. I had a chance to
catch up with George Perez and meet new friends. Once George and Peter
headed down to emcee the masquerade, the rest of us settled in to watch
from the room. Having master costumers like Kath and Marty Gear on hand
offer instant opinions and critiques, it was like having the director’s
commentary to a great film. There were many wonderful costumes, several
marred by bad presentations, but we were overall very impressed.
The wrap-up tomorrow.

Just a bright piece of news. Of course other may know this already but just sharing anyway.
A couple of members from our sm/ww archive were at Dragon Con on Sat
and they met George Perez. Of course they were in heaven meeting the
man whose WW they loved. But he did mention that he is planning to do a
one shot with Gail [Simone]. He is trying to work it into his very busy
schedule. So that's great news I think.

George Pérez is an illustrator and writer of comic books born of
Latin-American (Puerto-Rican) descent. Along with John Byrne, he was
arguably the most popular and influential artist in American comic
books in the 1980s. He primarily illustrates superhero comics, mainly
published by DC Comics and Marvel Comics, and is known for his clean,
dynamic, yet ornate style, with a strong emphasis on group superhero
Pérez's early work included Sons of the
Tiger (a serialized action-adventure strip published in Marvel's
long-running Deadly Hands of Kung Fu magazine and authored by prolific
comics writer Bill Mantlo. He and Mantlo co-created the White Tiger, a
character that soon appeared in Marvel's color comics, most notably,
the Spider-Man titles. Pérez came to prominence when he started
illustrating The Avengers for Marvel Comics, starting with vol. 1 #141.
His early style seemed very much influenced by Jack Kirby, one of
Marvel's leading creators from the 1960s, albeit with more realistic
anatomy and a penchant for making his worlds seem bright and beautiful.
In the 1970s, Pérez illustrated several other Marvel books, including
Fantastic Four, where he began working with Marv Wolfman, and Creatures
on the Loose featuring the Man-Wolf.
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 The New Teen Titans, written by Wolfman. This incarnation of
the Teen Titans was intended to be DC's answer to Marvel's
increasingly-popular X-Men comic, and Wolfman and Pérez indeed struck
gold. Moreover, Pérez's facility with layouts, details, and faces
improved enormously during his four years on the book, making him one
of the most popular artists in comics.
Wolfman and 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. Pérez was inked on the book by two of the best
inkers in comics at the time: Dick Giordano and Jerry Ordway. After
Crisis, Perez inked the final issue of Superman (issue #423) in
September 1986, over Curt Swan's pencils for Part 1 of the 2-part story
Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? by writer Alan Moore.
