    I thought I'd share my pics of GP from Megacon '07 in Orlando, FL in March. GP was kind and gracious enough to sign ALL my WW comics (at least 30) that he did. He also was really sweet to my daughter and myself. One of the pics is of the 3 of us.

    (excerpt)

    Legendary artist, George Perez said, “I can't think of a person I'm prouder to honor than Dick. Dick was one of the first artists who gave me my first criticism.” He went onto say, “Anyone who knows Dick knows that he was always encouraging new ideas and always wanted to help new talent. It was a great pleasure having Dick Giordano who inked some of my first work—including the New Teen Titans. I was really honored that the boss man had his hands on my work. We became friends during our entire time [at DC Comics]. Dick finally hung up his editorial hat and left DC Comics—for quite a while, there was a hole in DC's production, in DC's heart. They are starting to get back to that and now with Dan Didio I've gotten to know Dan and the biggest compliment I ever gave Dan Didio [...] is that I compared him to Dick Giordano. I am so happy to see bit of Dick's heart going back into a company that I've loved working with so much. You couldn't honor a nicer, gentler, more talented man than Dick Giordano. I'm very proud to have called this man a friend for a lot of years and Dick, you really deserve this.”

    First, I want to thank Beth W. of MegaCon 2007 for issuing press passes to The Masked Blogger and his associate ZenGrrl. We enjoyed covering various aspects of the Con and the access that the press passes allowed us. I'm already thinking about adding video coverage for next year's MegaCon. Thank you, Beth.

    The "celebrity" guests were a good mix this year. Noel Neill, Margot Kidder, Lou Ferrigno, Sean Astin, Kevin Sorbo, Mary McDonnell, and Jamie Barber on the media side and MegaCon Guest of Honor Dick Giordano, Adam Hughes, J.G. Jones, Adam Kubert, Amanda Conner, Barbara Kesel and perennial MegaCon guest, legendary artist George Perez, among many others, made for a slate of guests with something for everyone. I even saw Virgil from WCW and WWE Wrestling at a signing table, but sadly no one was in line to get his autograph.

    Speaking of George Perez, the man is still looking absolutely fantastic following the diet and exercise regimen he's been engaging in to control his diabetes. In fact, he looks like one of the superheroes he draws.

    MEGACON: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD'S GEORGE PEREZ
    SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2007


    MEGACON 2007 (16-18 Feb 2007) - Orlando, Florida
    ORLANDO -- With editor Joey Cavalieri stuck in New York because of the weather, George Perez proved brave and bold enough to handle The Brave and The Bold panel at MegaCon on Friday.

    (excerpt)

    Following are the highlights:
    * Perez had in hand an early look at The Brave and The Bold #1, which reaches stores on Wednesday. Since he has only two more convention appearances -- in New York and Pittsburgh -- until 2009, he decided to sign the book and make it available at the convention through Hero Initiative.

    * Perez noted that he just found out that he'll be doing 10 issues of The Brave and The Bold per year with writer Mark Waid. "My contracted stipulated 10 books per year because DC didn't want to overburden me," Perez said. "I didn't know about it. None us knew there was a skip month."

    DC's just-released May solicitations revealed no The Brave and The Bold #4. That issue will arrive in stores in June, and there will be a skip month every four months.

    MegaCon 2007 opened yesterday at the Orange County Convention Center and runs through Sunday at 5pm. You can get my take on the first day here, and ZenGrrl's here over on Orlando MetroBlog.

    I went back to the first room we had been for a "Special Panel TBA" which turned out to be a tribute to MegaCon Guest of Honor Dick Giordano. Mr. Giordano has been in the comic book industry since 1951, working as an artist and inker, then serving as Editor in Chief of Charlton Comics and later as the Executive Editorial Director of DC Comics. In recent years, he and his creative partners formed Future Entertainment, a multi-media company. Comic book luminaries and legends such as George Perez, Adam Kubert and Brian Pulido, among others, took to the dais to honor Mr. Giordano. As a crowning touch, a proclamation from Orange County Mayor Crotty was read, designating February 17, 2007 as "Dick Giordano Day".
