    George Perez Phantom Stranger

    I waited in line for three hours to get Mr. Perez to do this for me in San Diego a couple of years ago. Yeah, it's only a sketch but I really love it. I think that coolest thing is that Perez said this was the first Phantom Stranger that he's been asked to do.

    From Comic-Con 2001
  • Superstar artist George Perez signing a book for a fan.
  • We cruised into Saturday, July 20 with an even bigger boatload of comics-oriented events! Starting off the day, a Comic-Con tradition, Scott Shaw!'s Oddball Comics slide show, featuring Scott's hilarious and twisted look at some of the strangest comics ever published. Terry Moore took the stage to discuss his popular Strangers In Paradise self-published series, and Kurt Busiek and George Perez got together to discuss the biggest team-up of 2002, the JLA/Avengers mini-series, co-published by DC and Marvel. Image Comics, DC, Vertigo and WildStorm all offered major editorial presentations about upcoming books and products. We explored the world of online comics with panels devoted to the "Art of Digital Comics" and the "Business of Digital Comics," featuring experts like Scott McCloud and Steve Conley. 2002 special guest Peter David did a special reading, and CrossGen focused their panel on writing.

    San Diego 2001: The JLA / Avengers Panel
    In attendance: George Perez, Kurt Busiek, Tom Breevort, Mike Carlin
    � Kenn McCracken

    It was a strange site, seeing these men, representative of DC, Marvel, and now CrossGen, sitting side by side, discussing plans for what may be the single most anxiously awaited project in the history of comic books: the JLA / Avengers inter-company crossover. There were no heated words, no fisticuffs - it was, to say the least, an exciting moment, one that held the promise that the project was really happening.

    The project has history dating back to 1983, when George Perez (currently under exclusive contract to CrossGen Comics) had written and penciled a full single issue, detailing the meeting of the two teams that truly represented DC and Marvel. Things quickly fell apart, due to company politics, and the book was shelved (Rob Liefeld is currently in possession of the original pages). Rumors surfaced intermittently over the years that the project was being revived, but in the end, the rumors were just that.

    Flash forward to the turn of the century, nearly twenty years later. Both companies registered a huge success with Amalgam, a huge inter-company promotion that saw the biggest characters from both companies meeting in possibly the biggest event to date. The success of the event and changing environments at both companies has allowed the project to see a green light, and (thanks in no small part to CrossGen's Mark Alessi, who is allowing Perez to take a one-year leave of absence to work on the book), JLA/Avengers is finally moving forward.

    The fanboy's wet dream is shaping up better than ever, according to the panel. Perez, well known for his ability to fill a scene with more characters than would seem humanly possible, said, "I want this to be something that will put Crisis [on Infinite Earths] to shame in terms of the number of characters." It certainly looks like he'll have his wish; anyone who has ever been a member of the JLA or the Avenger will appear, along with Starro, the Watcher, the Squadron Supreme, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mongul, Doctor Doom, the monsters of Monster Island, the Hawk Police of Thanagar, the Punisher, and many, many others. According to Busiek, though, no Wolverine; "I'm confident that Wolverine will not show up" (to which Perez replied, "I'm confident that he won't be scripted."). Issue number three will sport a cover featuring every character who has ever been a member of either team.

    The story will be a stand-alone issue, spread over four Prestige Format books. They will not be Comics Code approved, although this is not a reaction to Marvel's new policy; rather, Prestige books are rarely submitted for CCA approval. Although it will be self-contained, Busiek says that there is at least one element that would be great for both companies to follow up on. It certainly appears that the possibly for real ramifications exists; it should also be noted, though, that the creators are ignoring the previous meetings of the teams for strength of telling.

    The possibilities for licensing and merchandise such as posters, hardcover collections, and the like is still up in the air at this time. This is an obviously tricky area; the books have been set up to take place over four issues, allowing each company to publish two books (and thus profit accordingly), but anything further will have to be contracted in such a way to allow both companies to share revenues, making for a potential minefield.

    When asked if he thought that waiting nearly twenty years was a good or bad thing, Perez responded with both pros and cons. 1983's version, he said, would have been the silver age characters in their purest form, and it would have been special simply due to the lack of crossovers that were occurring at the time. However, today's production standards are much higher, and his art has had twenty years to get better.

    Either way, its doubtful doubt you'll hear anyone complaining.

    From Andy Mangels
    I'm back from San Diego, where things went very well, though not without a few glitches.

    George signed for four long days at the CrossGen booth, producing 203 (if I remember the number right) sketches for fans.

    He also appeared at a spotlight panel in which I interviewed him and fans asked questions, and at a JLA/Avengers panel.

    The Perez Archives book sold very well, with the Deluxe versions (50 copies) selling out in the first two days, and the regular edition selling about 50 copies of the 200 total printed. George signed with me at the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund booth for the first two days, then at the CrossGen booth the second two days.

    The Perez Archives is still available at (though there was a little lateness getting it onto their website - sorry Steven and others) in both the Deluxe and Regular versions. After August 10th, ordering will be closed, and all copies of the books which have been ordered will be mailed THEN. Copies ordered through the website will be signed by myself and George, but not personalized.

    CrossGen Comics Senior Artist and comics legend George P�rez likes to keep meticulous track of all the sketches he does for fans when he�s at cons. By mid-Sunday San Diego, P�rez had done almost 200. Wonder Woman was the most popular choice, with Captain America coming in second. One fan asked for the Psycho Pirate.

    P�rez has done an absolutely ass-kickin� JLA/Avengers piece for the next ACTOR charity auction featuring seven female members from each the JLA and Avengers. And, as he pointed out, there are 14 distinct faces and 14 distinct hairstyles. This guy don�t take the easy road on anything.
