    George Perez Leads First Annual MegaWalk for Hero Initiative

    (Apr 2015)
    Hero Initiative
    As MegaCon Megawalk is a charitable fundraising event, CBR is happy to provide a platform for the President of Hero Initiative, Jim McLauchlin, to discuss the inaugural walk with one of comics' greatest living legends -- and a member of Hero's Board of Directors -- George Pérez.

    (excerpt)

    Jim McLauchlin: I recall our having a discussion once -- and this became a bit of the genesis of MegaWalk -- that you have a bit of a "tradition" where you take a long walk around the convention floor before the con day starts, right?

    George Pérez: Yes. And a lot of it is to get some exercise in, because I know I'm likely going to be sitting down for several hours during the con. Having been a good deal heavier in the past, walking was the primary way I eventually lost a lot of weight, and keep myself fit.

    How important have the simple things like maintaining health and fitness become to you as you get older? Hey -- you're now 60 years old!

    The amount of energy I gained after I stopped carrying the weight equivalent of a pygmy on my back -- or perhaps more correctly, around my waist -- was a life-changer. And in my case, being a diabetic, it became a case where if I didn't start doing something, I wouldn't be talking to you now. I realized I had a lot to live for, a lot to enjoy, and I wanted to be there to enjoy it. [My wife] Carol tried helping badger me into I-don't-know-how-many diets, but finally there came a time where I said, "It's all up to me. No one else will do this." So I started walking. It became the low-impact system that worked for me. Now, I've been up and down the weight ladder a bit, but since dropping the initial 50-plus pounds, I've thankfully never been back to the larger size I once was.

    CONVENTION SCHEDULE FOR 2015 (so far)


    Now that I'm working on a regular series again, I will be keeping my convention schedule relatively light next year, but these are NY scheduled shows so far. I've deliberately kept January, March and May clear for some personal stuff so I'm not likely to book anything for those months.. There are a few places I have never visited before, so I'm looking forward to meeting up with some new faces there.
