    Pérez also said he enjoyed doing the recent JSA story featuring the Earth-2 Superman. "I'm very proud of that because I finally got to draw the Superman I grew up with," he explained. "I got to exercise and deliberately draw the Golden Age Superman to look like the Max Fleischer/Joe Shuster/Wayne Boring/Curt Swan era of the character."

    Pérez said he expects to stay on Brave and the Bold for at least a year, but there are discussions about his possibly doing Legion of Super-Heroes after that. LSH, he said, was one of his favorite books to read but, ironically, one of the few super-team books he has never done. "That seems like an old sin that needs to be atoned for," he said.

    Although he is eager to reunite with Titans collaborator Marv Wolfman, "the gold standard by which I measure any collaborative process," resuming work on the Games graphic novel seems unlikely. "I would like to do something new … I’ll work with Marv in a heartbeat," he said. DC, he continued, "wants me to be part of its new front, not just there to replay past glories."

    Who is really going to pass up the chance to talk with George Perez? The man is a legend in the comics industry, and when he talks, you damn well sit down and listen. And when he talks about a new project, you start taking notes. On the final day of the Pittsburgh Comicon, artist to the stars George Perez hosted a panel that featured updates on the up and coming new series from DC Comics, “The Brave and the Bold.” Initially, Perez was to be joined by series writer Mark Waid, but, unfortunately, Waid was unable to attend the convention. That did not, however, stop Perez from giving his fans the scoop.

    First off, though, before we can get to “The Brave and the Bold,” Perez wanted everyone to know that his fill-in pages on “Infinite Crisis” #7 were indeed done and mailed out the previous Wednesday (April 19, for those of you keeping score). He also stated that he enjoyed doing the work, even though it ended up being more than he planned. That said, he moved on to the theme of the panel, the relaunch of everyone’s favorite team-up book.


    Lastly, no talk with George Perez would be complete without a discussion of the Teen Titans. One audience member asked whatever became of the “Titans: Games” project Perez had begun with Marv Wolfman. Perez explained that, before the plug was pulled on the project, he had completed about 75 pages of artwork out of the planned 125 pages. However, the title seemed to get lost in the editorial wheels, and Perez explained that should the chance to work with Wolfman ever comes up again, he’d do it in a heartbeat, though he’d like to do something more progressive, rather than just reliving old glories. In summary, though, Perez stated that he loves working on comics, and he wants to die with an unfinished page on his drawing board.

    The Main Event, Scoop, Friday, April 28, 2006

    Last weekend's Pittsburgh Comicon (April 21 - 23, 2006) featured a wide array of guests, retailers, gaming opportunities and other distractions for area fans. Held at the ExpoMart in Monroeville, Pennsylvania (about a half hour from downtown Pittsburgh), comics fans found the return of Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers) very appealing. Numerous other comic book guests such as Howard Chaykin, George Perez, Billy Tucci, David Mack, Mike Oeming, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti were joined by Star Wars guests and others for the three day show.

    Scoop photographer Michael Solof journeyed to the show and took the pictures below to provide just a taste of the convention.

    George Pérez had long and consistent lines of fans throughout the show.

    Catching up with George Perez is no easy task. It's been a busy year for the artist. In between his time working on the interiors of the seven-part mini-series Infinite Crisis, a recent issue of JSA and the upcoming Brave and the Bold ongoing title for DC Comics, he's been churning out amazingly detailed covers for the Infinite Crisis.

    But fans are lucky -- Perez does sit still for a little while when he's at comic book conventions, and he's got quite a few of them on his schedule for this summer. So, as he worked on one of over 50 sketches he completed at this past weekend's Pittsburgh Comic-Con, Newsarama had a quick chat with Perez to get the inside scoop on his latest work and a few more details about what he's doing next.

    Newsarama: So it's finally happening? Months after it was announced that Mark Waid was writing a Brave and the Bold ongoing for DC with you as penciller, you're finally working on the series?
    George Perez: Yes! I was supposed to start in November, but because of Infinite Crisis and JSA, and Mark being caught up in 52, it got delayed more and more. But I'm starting on the first issue, and it looks like a lot of fun. The first teaming up is Batman and Green Lantern -- in Vegas! So I've got to keep freeze-framing CSI" I believe, from what I gather, Supergirl will probably be the next character that's spotlighted.

    The next person I had to find and hug was George Perez. George is one of my absolute favorite people in comics - and not just because he usually shows me advanced looks at pages he's working on. Last year he showed me all these Donna Troy pages he was working on months and months before they came out. He knows she's my favorite comic character of all time, so brought them special to give me a treat. This year we chatted for a while and caught up on life in and out of comics. George always has a smile on his face. You can tell he truly loves this industry and his time in it. What's great about a smaller show like Pittsburgh is you have the chance to really talk to someone like George Perez. There are always people waiting to meet him, but if you stand around and shout out questions or go earlier in the day, you might find him with just one or two people in line and able to talk more about any given topic. He was sketching both Donna Troy and Starfire head shots for different folks. It's so cool to watch him draw in person and see how things unfold on the page.

    After George, I found Brian Michael Bendis, who had a long line of folks waiting to get his autograph and chat with him. I hugged him quickly and asked about doing another interview for a future PULSE. He said we should and then I left him to his long line of fans.

    News: Buzz From the Floor @ Pittsburgh Comic-Con

    At this weekend's 13th annual Pittsburgh Comicon at the Monroeville ExpoMart, the floor buzz seemed to concentrate on a variety of new mini-series spinning out of the year's big events at DC and Marvel.


    George Perez is finally working on pencils for the new Brave and the Bold title for DC Comics, a series that was announced almost a year ago. Delayed because of the artist's work on the Infinite Crisis mini-series and writer Mark Waid's involvement in the weekly series 52, the series seems to be back on track now. Perez said he's gotten the first script, and it features a Batman and Green Lantern team-up.

    "Mark has found an ingenious way of doing the old formula but working within the climate where everything has to be considered for trades," Perez explained. "I think people will really enjoy it."

    Recently George signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics. Since he has worked on the Return of Donna Troy miniseries and he is currently providing covers for Infinite Crisis, the sequel to he and Marv Wolfman's incredible Crisis on Infinate Earths. George has also been linked with Mark Waid on the upcoming resurrection of DC's Brave and the Bold series and as if that weren't enough George is still pluggin away on a Teen Titan's Hardcover with old TT parner, Marv Wolfman.

     From George Pérez
    This is a list of the comics conventions I will be attending in 2006. Some are "rain-check" appearances for shows that I had to cancel in 2005 due to health reasons. In some cases this puts me in a position of attending some conventions on back-to-back weekends, but it couldn't be helped. I hope to be able to get together with a lot of my fans next year and will be warming up my autograph hand.
    February 24th - 26th: MegaCon, Orlando, FL
    April 21st - 23rd: Pittsburgh Comicon, Monroeville, PA
    April 28th - 30th: Paradise Toronto Comicon, Toronto, Canada
    May 19th - 21st: Motor City Con, Novi, Michigan
    June 30th - July 2nd: Heroes Con, Charlotte, NC
    July 20th - 23rd: Comicon International, San Diego, CA
    September 1st- 4th: Dragon Con, Atlanta, GA
    September 9th - 10th: Baltimore Comic Con, Baltimore, MD
    I will also be attending the October Portland, OR show for Second Genesis (another rain-check from 2005) but I still have no confirmed date.

    That should keep me busy for the year in between issues of THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD.
