    (excerpt)

    George Perez was passing by and Brian Tidwell got his attention and he came over and talked to the both of us for a few minutes. He told us he could not wait for the Baltimore show since that would be the first Con after JLA/Avengers was out and how after that his schedule was going to lessen for a while - the guy needs a rest!

     July 27, 2003 | Thor Vs Absorbing Man Commission
    From Christos Gage
    THOR vs ABSORBING MAN (July 2003), commissioned by Christos Gage at San Diego Comic-Con (16-20 Jul 2003).

    Thought you might enjoy this commission piece I got from George Pérez at the San Diego con. It's an homage to two of my favorite Marvel comics -- Avengers #184 (my favorite Perez cover) and Journey Into Mystery #121 by Jack Kirby.

    Originally I planned to make it a "Jam" piece with other artists adding other Avengers to the scene, but when I saw what George had done, it was too beautiful to mess with.

    Teen Titans #1
    Off the Presses, Scoop, Friday, July 25, 2003

    Unless you've been hiding out for the past two weeks, you probably have heard that Teen Titans #1 sold out from DC nine days before it hit the stands. The newly revitalized title, written by Geoff Johns (Flash, JSA) and illustrated by the team of Mike McKone (pencils) and Marlo Alquiza (inks), was nearly impossible to find at cover price at Comic-Con International: San Diego, and the variant cover by Michael Turner (Fathom) was even harder to locate. Now the second printing is available, with a cover paying homage to the Marv Wolfman - George Perez era New Teen Titans #1. And other than a few team members, what does the latest Teen Titans have in common with its illustrious predecessor? Great story, great art and lots and lots of attention from collections. The Teen Titans cartoon is also up and running on Cartoon Network, so stay tuned.

    DC's Director of Sales and Marketing, Patricia Jeres, said that the company could not go into any detail on the JLA/Avengers mini-series. When asked why, she replied, "It's a collaborative project with Marvel. Without a Marvel presence here at the con, we can't say anything because they have to know what's being said." Gather what you can from that, but at least we know that this is a very serious project.

    There were many parties to go to this year, including the Crossgen affair, the IDW party (Len Wein and I are co-writing the "Gene Pool" graphic novel for them, on sale in October) and the Teen Titans cartoon premiere party. George Perez and I sat together watching the show. I'd seen the episode in advance, but George had not...

    The con finally ended Monday night with the last of my annual Wolfman Post san Diego Con parties. I've been holding them on and off for over a decade, and everyone and their mothers came out for this one. We had tons of friends as well as many new visitors.

    STOP THE PRESSES: The annual FanPro trivia had a shocking result when the Fan team, led by Tom Galloway, Sidne Gail Ward and Tim Lynch dealt a decisive 190-80 victory to the pro team of Len Wein, Kurt Buseik and Mark Waid. The lop-sided victory was particularly ironic the category was chosen by Busiek himself and was, of all things, JLA/AVENGERS.

     July 20, 2003 | No Wizard Special for JLA/A
    From Kirk

    San Diego news! Actually, bad news. I asked the folks at Wizard if they would be doing a JLA/Avengers special issue like the big Alex Ross special. They said they talked about it but decided not to.

    My hope was not only for them to do a special, but that they would have artist like Alan Davis, Phil Jimenez and Neal Adams do JLA/Avengers sketches for it, since it seems that neither Marvel or DC will be doing anything for it out side of the series itself. I even hoped to let them see and possibly use JLA/Avengers art that I had commissioned these past few years by artist like Mike Grell, Mike Miller and Geof Isherwood among others. Of course I'm guessing they might've had to contact the respective artist in the use of the art, but heck. I don't know. But since Wizard wasn't planning anything I never showed them any of the art.

    I had to leave the con to catch my flight at 2 p.m. Saturday, So I have no idea what was discussed on the JLA/Avengers panel (JLA/Avengers Pro/Fan Trivia Challenge). I can only hope DC is planning something big. Marvel didn't have a booth, so I couldn't ask them any questions.

    I did get my picture with my main man George Perez though, so that was cool. Just never had the chance to really talk with him.

    AVENGERS/JLA #1 JLA/AVENGERS #2
    (excerpt)

    In speaking about Avengers/JLA, moderator Bob Wayne quipped that people should hurry and buy issue #1 (published by Marvel), because he anticipates it will be gone by the end of the day. Wayne then said that, in October, people can take their time in getting their issue, because DC is printing it (hinting that they will be overprinting). Wayne continued, saying that hopefully people won’t have family obligations in November, because they’ll have to get to the comic book store to get their copy of issue #3 (published by Marvel), but in December, people can once again take their time in getting to the shop for issue #4.

    “So, in summary,” Wayne said, “Avengers/JLA, two issues hard to find, two issues very easy to find.”

    One of the biggest upcoming events from DC and Marvel comics is the crossover of their icons in Avengers/JLA. The miniseries begins this September and features tons of heroes, lots of action, and adventure. Written by Kurt Busiek with art by George Perez, this series is sure to thrill mainstream superhero fans. Perez commented this may be his last “mainstream hurrah” here.

    (excerpt)

    "Solus #6" features a cross-over with one of Barbara Kesel's other books, "The First." After that, "Solus" will cross into "Brath" and into "Mystic". The story in "Solus" begins a sort of concluding arch that will reveal the truth behind the sigils in the CGU. Look for the saga to come to a head sometime next year.

    JLA/AVENGERS #1
    JLA/Avengers is nearing its publication date in September and THE PULSE thought it was the perfect opportunity to catch up with Busiek and ask him a few quick questions about his thoughts on the series. Was this a Holy Grail? If not what is? Why should you spend your hard earned money on this crossover of epic proportions? Busiek offers answers to all this and more ...

    THE PULSE: How does it feel to be so close to finally having an issue in hand of this series?

    KURT BUSIEK: Pretty damn good. It's been a long road, but seeing color proofs of #1's artwork, seeing it all put together as *comics*, was a real treat. Seeing it printed and bound will be even more so -- particularly since that's when we start to find out whether the audience *likes* this monster we've been building for years...

    THE PULSE: Was this like your comics holy grail of projects you always dreamed of doing? How is the reality to what you thought it would be like?

    BUSIEK: No, actually, I never really dreamed of doing JLA/AVENGERS -- I never expected to be the guy they'd tap to do it, when and if it ever happened. I'd come up with a scenario or two, just for fun, but hey, I was bowled over when I got offered AVENGERS in the first place. To be in the right place at the right time, and get offered JLA/AVENGERS too was nothing I ever expected was going to happen.

    Back when I was a wanna-be pro, my holy grail, the book I wanted to write more than any other, was X-MEN. I got over that years ago, though, and have been having fun doing all kindsa stuff.

    THE PULSE: Which characters have been your favorite to have interact from each team?

    BUSIEK: Nice try. I'm looking forward to people coming to this without a whole lot of insider information -- just letting 'em wait and see what happens, rather than giving tidbits away before they read it.

    THE PULSE: If you had to give the pitch of why people should check this out … what would your pitch be?

    BUSIEK: It's the JLA, it's the Avengers, it's George Perez with the pedal to the metal, drawing the book he was born to draw, and it's been twenty years of waiting. That's enough, I think -- if you don't want that, then this ain't the project for you.

    If you like my stuff, hey, that's cool too -- but I think "JLA. Avengers. Perez. Finally." pretty well covers it.

    JLA/AVENGERS #1
    (excerpt)

    Newsarama: Well, I was thinking more along the lines of an early 19th century British orphanage with fans saying, “Please, sir, may I have some more?”…

    Kurt Busiek: What I've just outlined will keep me busy on Astro City for quite a while. Beyond that, Carlos Pacheco and I are just now launching Arrowsmith, that fantasy-adventure WWI series I mentioned. I have a TPB of the first ongoing title I ever created, The Liberty Project, which James Fry and I did for Eclipse -- that's just out from About Comics.

    In September, JLA/Avengers starts, with sensational art by George "All of Them" Perez. Sometime after that, I've got Conan, with Cary Nord, for Dark Horse, and Superman: Secret Identity with Stuart Immonen, for DC. And there are at least two other projects after that -- since a couple of those are minis -- but they're not announced yet.

    That's enough to keep me at the keyboard for a good while to come...

    Topic: Creators Appear in San Diego
    Posted: 2003-06-21 19:41:48.0

    "Mr. Kurt Busiek and Mr. Carlos Pacheco are both slated to appear at Comic Con International in San Diego on July 17-20 2003."

    Not only that, but Carlos will be joining Len Wein, Mark Waid and yrs truly on the "Purple Pros" trivia team, as we take on a fan team of gee- er, trivia experts on Saturday.

    The subject of the challenge this year, fittingly enough, is JLA/AVENGERS.

    This gives us a team that has a few appropriate credits -- Len has written JLA and edited both JLA and AVENGERS, Mark has written both JLA and AVENGERS, Carlos has drawn AVENGERS FOREVER, an AVENGERS Annual and JLA/JSA: VIRTUE & VICE, and I've written both JLA and AVENGERS and JLA/AVENGERS.

    With any luck, we'll remember some of it.
