A cover from Crisis was near top of the list, but with only 12 of them, and most being locked in people's collections, I knew that it was not going to be easy. After shortlisting the covers I reached out and contacted the owners of the 3 that I liked the most, and although none of them were in the market to sell (or if they were it was at levels that made Kirby covers look cheap), I kept at it over the years, and back in 2004, I was contacted ...

    My family spent the week before Pittsburgh Comicon 2007 in the New Jersey/Philadelphia area. Besides seeing sites from the Rocky movies and eating cheese steaks, my sister Peri Toth and I began learning wet on wet oil painting techniques from Bill Alexander certified instructor Jack Kolber and his wife Fran Kolber. It was a blast! I already knew some of the brush strokes but Mr. Kolber helped me learn a bunch more. I clicked with him real well. Sometimes, I would even finish his sentences. I have watched all of his Magic Brush Art with Jack Kolber TV shows on DVD and I can't wait for them to be on PBS! You can see more of this adventure including pictures on his website at: www.magicbrushart.com

    Also, this con was the last appearance of my adopted Uncle George P�rez until 2009! As usual, he again helped raise thousands of dollars for Make-A-Wish. His artwork for this year's T-Shirt brought in the most money at the charity art auction.

    He and his wife Carol Flynn celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in 2006 and I drew them a New Teen Titans #8 cover tribute � the issue he was working on when he had his first date with her. They own the original pencil and ink artwork, original color artwork, and 23 of the 25 signed and numbered prints that I also made for them. I own print #14, which is personalized to me, and I will not part with it! Print #13 sold for $210.00 at the auction and was also signed by my Uncle George. And I brought new drawings of Starfire, Raven and Wonder Girl [Donna Troy] for him as well.

    (excerpt)

    After that, our family brought some pizzas up to Uncle George's penthouse suite and we talked about how he and I are going to make comic books together someday � for real! He said that if he'd ink my artwork, he would draw a thinner line than I draw right now. I told him that I would like to draw Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld with creator/writer Dan Mishkin, along with The New Teen Titans. And I also asked him 100 fun, non-comic book questions for everyone to enjoy until he returns to conventions in 2009. Check out my Uncle George P�rez on the net at: www.george-perez.com

    GONE 'TIL '09: GEORGE PEREZ'S FINAL PANEL FROM PITTSBURGH
    by Justin Eger, Guest Contributor
    Posted: May 2, 2007 � More From This Author

    (excerpt)

    You might have heard the rumors and they are true - George Perez, the living legend, the man behind the definitive versions of Wonder Woman and the Teen Titans, has hung up his convention-going hat until 2009.

    Mostly.

    At this past weekend's Pittsburgh Comicon, the convention promoters set aside some time, as they do every year, for George Perez to talk with fans and get some questions answered. This year was special, though, as Pittsburgh marked George's last official convention appearance in the United States, and one of the last two total, until 2009. Perez explained this at the beginning of his panel, noting that he's got one more commitment abroad before unpacking his convention bags for a while.

    The reason for his departure from the convention scene is twofold. While he loves meeting fans and getting feedback during his show visits, he's taking the time off to focus not only on his work, but his wife. Perez explained that for a number of years, his wife has been patient and put up with his focus on touring to show after show. Now she, with a new position in a touring dance troupe, will be the focus of his life, and he said he just wants to devote his time to her now, following her around the country and watching her perform while he continues his work for DC Comics.

    Pittsburgh Comicon brings artists and Superheroes to the Expomart
    Thursday, April 26, 2007
    By Tony Norman, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    From the hit NBC series "Heroes" to the much-anticipated debut of "Spider-Man 3" in theaters next week, comic book icons have a seat at the table of both popular culture and big business. Only a philistine would doubt that the once-maligned comic book subculture has made the transition from the anonymity of mom's basement to the corporate boardroom. Comic books are hip and profitable.

    (excerpt)

    Artist George Perez, arguably one of the top five fan favorites of all time, is making the Pittsburgh Comicon his last convention appearance for a few years. Known for his linear style and intricate rendering of superhero battles, Perez made his biggest mark on DC Comics' "Crisis on Infinite Earth," the Marvel/DC crossover between the Avengers and the Justice League of America and a superb run on "The New Teen Titans" in the 1980s.

    Name: Jim Powell
    Comments: Hello Mr. P�rez, just wanted to say i'm huge fan and look forward to you new project. Very said to see Pittsburgh comicon your last north american stop for the next few years. On the bright side, i've had the chance to meet you a few times there. I've been lucky enough to get a number of head sketches from you at the Pittsburgh comicon and was wondering if it is okay I put a request in for a full body. I know you don't do many of those but figured try and request it early. Not very picky at all...either batman or go old-school w/ a 70s character (i.e, Man-wolf) or some one like that. thanks!

    JORNADAS DE C�MIC DE AVIL�S 2007 - Aviles, Spain (Sep 2007)
    The Pittsburgh Comic-Con will be the last national convention and public appearance that I plan to be doing until 2009. (I say "national" because I will be attending a comics festival in Aviles, Spain in September, making up for a cancellation by me in 2004 due to my psoriasis.) I've had several requests for guest appearances in the last few days and will likely receive more so I figure I should give this official notice which should, hopefully, save some organizers some money on phone calls.

    Of course, I should now explain why I've made this somewhat unusual decision.

    A huge part of it is my commitment to drawing a monthly title again.

    I've just started the third issue of THE BRAVE & THE BOLD and want to continue keeping the book on time. As everyone knows, I put a lot of work into a page and I don't want to compromise the quality of the work by breaking my momentum too often. And, let's face it, I'm just not as fast as I was in my youth.

    I also want to devout the bulk of my free time to my wife, Carol, and her personal and professional pursuits, which sometimes require a bit of traveling. I don't want Carol to feel that she always has to be squeezed into a crowded schedule of convention appearances. After so many years working her life around my sometime crazy schedule and having to endure many weekends apart she's pretty much due some time wherein I happily play her groupie and camp follower. Hey, we've been married over a quarter of a century and it still aches when we're apart.

    Anyway, I hope everyone understands my decision and I just want to add that I'm so incredibly flattered by the attention so many convention organizers and comic shop managers have given me throughout my career. It's just for a short while and I will miss seeing the fans during that time, but I hope to make up for that when 2009 comes along.

    I should also mention that this decision isn't absolute. If I'm offered an opportunity to attend a show in an area that my wife would like to visit, then negotiations are possible. But, unless my Carol is traveling beside me, I will be pretty much hunched over my drawing board doing what I love to do and have been allowed to do for over three decades-- create comics.

    Thanks for listening.

    Take care,
    George P�rez
