Perez was in his seemingly usual high spirits. Always friendly and
always talkative, George will make anyone meeting him feel right at
home. I could only guess that he is still taking it easy after drawing
the monumental JLA/AVENGERS mini series, because he was still wearing
the brace over his one hand for the tendonitis incurred by that cover to
issue #3. OR, I have a theory that the brace is how George politely
gets out of sketching for the masses (I’m kidding there people.)
got a kick out of listening to him talk about how he was recently able
to buy his wife a brand new car. “And I paid for it in cash,” he gushed.
Take a break George you deserve it!
final observation of Mr. Perez at the Pitt Con would be that, whenever
he wasn’t at his own booth he could be found wandering the floor and
visiting with many of the other creators and simply “talking shop”. I
really respect the guy for taking time and talking to the younger
creators. Someone of his stature really doesn’t need to do that sort of
thing and no matter what convention I see him at, George is always
smiling and talking to creators and fans.

To our loyal SOJOURN readers...

Not that this is completely official or
anything, but when I was talking to George Perez at the Pittsburgh
Comicon two weeks ago, he was talking about his upcoming workload, and
he said he was dedicating all of May to finishing "Sojourn/Lady Death."
So it seems that as far as he knows, the project is still on. And he's
drawing it for free, so it seems like money in the bank for Crossgen.

I wanted to let all those folks I just saw in Pittsburgh that I made it
home and that it was wonderful seeing you, and to give those I didn't a
heads up to look for me at the upcoming Detroit con and the Book Expo in
Chicago later this month.
here's a link to my latest Baker's Dozen, a mission statement of sorts
which was prompted by my ruminations on the recent passing of Carrie
Nodell combined with the realization I hadn't really set any out before
now. You'll find that piece, along with links to past BDs, at:

I was only there Friday for a few hours but I had a great time.
George was great as always!! He's hand was still wrapped and he wasn't
sketching but that doesn't stop him from being a fan favorite.

promoter Michael George. “This was his first time at the show, but Adam
Hughes already e-mailed us and let us know he wants to come back next
