Ends: Nov-15-03 13:08:29 PST
You are bidding on an incredible full
figure pin-up of Joseph Michael Linsner's Dawn by none other than the
incomparable GEORGE PEREZ!! Dawn is a fan favorite in the comic world,
so who better to try his hand at rendering her than fan favorite Geroge
Perez?!?!?! George is hotter than ever with his work on the awesome
soldout JLA / Avengers crossover series. This piece was commissioned
directly from Mr. Perez a few years ago at a con. For those of you
who've never had the pleasure of meeting him, George Perez is one of
the nicest, most friendly people you will ever meet in the comic
industry. The art is on standard 11 x 17 comic art board. The piece was
first done in blue line pencils and then inked (both by Perez). I think
you'll agree that this is a piece that any Dawn or Perez fan would LOVE
to have in their collection.

Pittsburgh Comicon 2002 Report
written by Paul
This was the 4th Comicon I had attended
in the past 3 years and I believe George Perez was in attendance at all
of them. However, for various reasons, he wasn't doing sketches when I
was finally able to inquire about having one done. This has been a
source of continuing disappointment for me as George Perez is my
favorite penciler of all-time. Fate was with me this time, though. Due
to the early, 10:00 a.m., start to the con, and because I had been
allowed onto the floor even earlier, the line in front of Mr. Perez's
table was only 5 people long when I passed by and he was already there
talking to the fans. My initial plan to walk around the entire con and
see who was there immediately got back-burnered as I sidled into the
line for Mr. Perez.
Mr. Perez has a very well-deserved
reputation as one of the nicest artists you can meet. He enjoys
chatting with fans about all of the different books he's worked on and
he's very personable. I was overjoyed when I got to the front of the
line and saw that he was offering to do sketches with the proceeds to
go to charity. Head sketches and full-length sketches were available
with the price for full-length sketches being steep but since the
proceeds were going to charity and since the chance to have Mr. Perez
draw a sketch specifically for me might not come again, I opted for
full-length and requested that he draw the Blue Bulleteer. I figured
his classic style would really accentuate the elegance of the
character. Since he was familiar with AC Comics but not with the Blue
Bulleteer, I provided him with an image reference and told him that the
character design is based on the Fox Comics' Phantom Lady as drawn by
Matt Baker. He indicated that as far as he could remember it was the
first time that he had drawn a "Femforce" character for a fan at a con
and he said that he would likely complete the drawing that night after
the con so that he could take more time on it. That was fine with me
since I felt very lucky that George Perez would be taking a little bit
more time to draw the Blue Bulleteer for me.

With George Perez (New Teen Titans, Wonder Woman, Avengers, Crisis On
Infinite Earths, and the upcoming JLA/Avengers). George signed a few
books for me -
Crisis On Infinite Earths, New Teen Titans: Judas Contract, The Infinity Gauntlet and also gave me a copy of the
Millenium Edition of New Teen Titans#1 (which he also signed). He also said that he's halfway done with JLA/Avengers… can't wait for that one!

COMICON Apr 26- 28 My second convention of 2002 won't soon be
forgotten. On the last day at about 2:00, there was a quick storm and
the lights went out for the rest of the show! One guy was going through
my paintings with a key chain flashlight! It was surreal. To make
things worse, my shuttle bus was late and I had to run to my departing
flight with my heavy bag. By the time I got to the gate I was tired,
hungry, and sweaty--I must have looked like a nervous terrorist because
just as I was about to board, security pulled me to the side and did a
random check on me! Finally, I had to explain to them that I draw for
Marvel comics (Luckily, I had Elektra copies in my bag). They were
slightly impressed and sent me on my merry way. I was never so glad to
get home. Not that this was a bad show, in fact it was very good and I
thank Michael and Renee George for setting up my table. Anyway, my most
memorable moment of the con was when George Perez (one of my childhood
heroes) came to my table to tell me I'm doing a good job. You can't get
much higher praise than that. Thanks, George. Also, special thanks go
out to Frank Wright, who was kind enough to drive me to Kinko's for
much needed supplies.

Pittsburg 2002 Review
Pittsburgh Comic Con
Quite a few people were at the show, despite the upcoming Wizard con.
Many other guests said it was a lot slower than usual, and that may be
true, but Artists Alley certainly saw traffic and this was definitely
busier than the last Pittsburgh con. Yay for people.
Guests- There was a pretty wide range of guests that were at this show
so there was a pretty wide range of visitors. Big comic book names like
Frank Cho and George Perez brought in comic art fans which was just
fine with me. Of course, my big 'Con' for this show might illustrate
that you can have too much variety in guests.
Greasy Guy from Mega Con '01 has competition. The torment lasted
for half a day, but the fact that it happened is why I'm mad. If you
talked to me on Saturday or Sunday, you heard about this. Read on.

LOOT FROM THE CON
is a terrific place to shop. Since I don't have to worry about packing
for an airplane ride home, I can buy as much stuff as I want and just
pack it in the back of the Jeep. Piece of cake. Alas, I picked up only
a small stack of trades from the half-off and 40% off bins, and some
pages of original art.
two sketches to the sketchbook. George Perez did the Black Canary piece
I mentioned last week, and Michael Turned drew up an ice queen from
FATHOM to fit in well with the snow/ice theme my sketchbook has
developed. They're both beautiful pieces. I can't imagine being able to
stand in long lines at any of the other cons to get them. My legs would
have been numb long before then. The relatively small size of PittCon
makes for easy access to the top names that attend.

JLA/Avengers Pushed to 2003
JLA/AVENGERS PUSHED TO 2003
By George Nelson
Transcribed by Vu
When is the long-awaited crossover between The Avengers and The Justice League of America?
"At home right now," quipped artist George Pérez, who added that he has penciled 85 of JLA/Avengers' 150 total pages counting covers, and had inked 33 pages as of his appearance at the Pittsburgh Comicon in late April.
going at a rate of about a page a day, and I hope to have all the
penciling done by September so that, by the time I'm working at
CrossGen, all that's left is the inking for the rest of the book," he
Even so, Pérez said he does not expect the first installment of the four-issue mini-series to be released for a year.
ironic is that my first issue of my monthly CrossGen title may actually
come out first, though I won't be starting it until October, just
because we want to make sure I am well into the inking stages of the
fourth issue before we schedule it," he said, "so the book will come
out monthly." Pérez is on a leave of absence from CrossGen to work on
individuals who have seen the pages said they are confident fans will
approve of the final product, which is being written by Avengers writer Kurt Busiek.

presentation starts at 8 p.m., an hour after the con floor closes.
While last year's fireworks came from Frank Miller's WIZARD-ripping
speech, this year's CrossGen showing ought to be the focus of many
interesting acceptance speeches and gags. CrossGen doesn't have an
official presence at this con, so it'll be interesting to see if anyone
flies up from Florida for it. (George Perez is scheduled as a guest,
but if he'll be there in any capacity as an official CrossGen spokesman
is anyone's guess.) Evan Dorkin is the host and Tony Millionaire is the

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.
