    • The unpublished Wizard 100th Issue Poster From George Perez WIZARD 100TH ISSUE POSTER (Errata) (2000) Wizard "A couple of years ago WIZARD had asked me to lay out a proposed poster for their 100th issue. The piece would be a montage of 100 characters to be pencilled and inked by various artists but the whole thing was designed in blue pencil by me. That's why each of the characters, from various companies and creators, were numbered, so that the other artists could refer to a key and draw their character where indicated. That particular artwork was never completed, presumably because of the inability to coordinate it with the schedules and availability of many of the artists WIZARD wanted involved."

    It's Con Season! Autograph Etiquette
    Written by Zenguru

    It's Duck Season!  It's Wabbit Season!  No, it's Con Season!  Here's some hints and how-ya-dos for getting autographs from your favorite writers and artists! Ah, yes.  Con Season is already well under way.  And the biggest shows have yet to stroll our way.  But whether a show is big or small.  We can't help but want to devour it all.  If you're anything like me, you love getting comics signed by your favorite writers and artists.  I've slogged my way through comicons for the past 15 years or so and I've met many different comic creators in the process.  And they all have different rules for signing and/or selling stuff.  Gradually, I learned there is a particular etiquette to getting stuff signed.  I had to learn that I can't always get everything I want signed, but I can get the stuff signed that means most to me.

    (excerpt)

    Pittsburgh Comicon '99 (or was it '00?):  A retailer who shall remain nameless brought around a dozen copies of the Avengers #12 headshot variant to be signed by George Perez.  Perez later learned this fellow sold those copies at the show for a very high premium.  From then on, Perez vowed never to sign multiple copies again.  Don't know if he's maintained that rule since, but it was a dirty trick.

    The lesson here is don't be a jerk and generally you'll get what you want.  Trust me, they do remember.
