Julio's mission is to have all of his George Pérez stuff signed, eventually.
As always, Mr Pérez was wonderfully gregarious and very nice to talk
to. I wanted to pinch him on the butt but I chickened out and never
did, even though Julio said Mr Pérez is known to be somewhat of a perv
and would have probably enjoyed it.

Everette Hebert: Mudbug by GEORGE PEREZ!! I've been a fan of
George's work since I was ten years old when I picked up my first copy
of The New Teen Titans. He is hands down my all time favorite comic book
artist. To say that I was thrilled to have him draw one of my
characters could only be an understatement. I could continue to gush,
but instead I'll just let you enjoy the art.

MegaCon 2002 Report
MegaCon 2002 (April 2002)
by Rita Fennelly
Today, I had
the opportunity to work the same shift as my husband at the CG booth.
We were both assigned to line control since tons of people were lining
up to get sketches and autographs from the creative teams. Saturday was
certainly the busiest day and most intense when it came to people at the
con. I was assigned to specifically manage the always-long line for
George Perez. He did sketches for donations to the ACTOR
(A Commitment to our Roots) non-profit organization on Friday and
Sunday, and he did free sketches at the CG booth on Saturday.
Line-control is pretty fun because you get to talk to the fans in line
and also check out the cool sketches the artists create. Since fans
sometimes stand in line for hours for a sketch, all the line control
volunteers all made sure that fans who just wanted autographs were
brought to the front of the line. Lots of fans came up to me that day,
and said that they thought it was so cool that CG took this into account
so they wouldn't have to wait forever for a two-second signing.

including a Silent Bob belt buckle prototype ($300) and a Mooby banner

broke out of its protective bag and fell to the floor.

ACTOR ORLANDO MEGACON AUCTION NETS $45,000
Calif., – February 27, 2002 - ACTOR announced today the outstanding
results of its latest fund-raisers at the Orlando MegaCon convention
from February 23rd through 25th. ACTOR raised $50,000 over the weekend,
with a major Saturday night auction as the centerpiece.
ACTOR Disbursement Committee Co-chairman and CrossGen Senior Artist
George Pérez contributed his time by spending two entire days at
ACTOR’s MegaCon booth, doing drawings for donations. Pérez’ efforts
netted over $2000 for the cause. "Many people may marvel at the marathon
drawing sessions I contribute for ACTOR," said Pérez. "But when you
compare the number of hours I’ve worked to line my own pockets in the
past 27-plus years, the hours I spend working for ACTOR are merely the
first drops of water in a huge rain barrel’s worth of payback. It’s the
least I can do to thank those creative pioneers who’ve allowed me to
make a good living doing what I love to do best, creating comics."

art from George, he was very busy the whole day, he had a long list of
commissions art that he was doing for a very worthy cause, ACTOR, the
cause that helps retired cartoonist. I really didn't want to take a lot
of his time. I've got a lot of art to choose from for the third issue of
GPN, the tough part is choosing what to use and what not to use. So now
that I've got the art and a
have received several responses from cast members, the pieces are really
falling into place. I also made some other connections for future
issues, possible interviews with Jim Mooney, Dick Giordano, and Alex
Ross. To round out the show, I sold a few copies of the magazine, and
found a few books that I was missing. All around fun day.
To top it all off, I just received a package from one of the members of Crimson
Plague and he sent me some copies of drawings of Crimson Plague by various
professionals, some very nice drawings, so I'm expanding the fan art section for the issue [GEORGE PEREZ NEWSLETTER #3],
this issue is going to be better than I could ever imagine. I will be

CrossGen’s overall plan of operation since the first day of business,
but it took this long to build up a library to support the new forms of

Convention Appearances 2002
I just wanted to clear up some info regarding my 2002 convention
appearances. Due to my heavy workload on JLA/AVENGERS (I'm pencilling the
second issue and am almost 1/3 through the inking of the first) I will be
doing only four conventions this year. They are:
MegaCon (Orlando, FL) in February,
Pittsburgh Comicon in April, Heroes Con
(Charlotte, NC) in June and Baltimore Comicon in October. Unfortunately, I
will not be attending either of the Wizard shows and will not be present in
San Diego this year.
I'll keep you up to date of any changes.
Thanks for the great job you're doing with this site.

Megacon Special Guests
SPECIAL GUESTS: GEORGE PEREZ
George first started in comics in 1973 as an assistant to Rich Buckler, working on a back-up story in Astonishing Tales #25.
His first solo assignments came a year later when he penciled the
story of "Sons of the Tiger" from the black and white magazine Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu, and "Man-Wolf" from Creatures on the Loose. Within a year of those stories, he was offered regular assignments on Fantastic Four, the Inhumans, and the Avengers.
George has worked steadily since that time. It was his work on these
large-scale team books that garnered him the reputation as the artist
that liked to draw group books. During his historic career, George has
worked for every major publisher, as well as some minor ones. He is
best known for his work on The New Teen Titans, a series that
helped turn DC Comics around in the early 80s and was also the first
mainstream title to offer a royalties program to its creators. He is
also well known for his runs on Wonder Woman, Marvel Comics' Avengers series, and for the maxi-series that end all maxi series, Crisis on Infinite Earths. You can now see George's work on the CrossGen Comics title CrossGen Chronicles.
