    I've collected comics for years. Was once involved with an artist. Went to my first San Diego Comic Con this past July. Yet its only now that i'm comfortable in calling myself as a fan girl. I don't know why I was uncomfortable that in the past. I'm not hiding it anymore. :) I recently joined Livejournal and was looking for communities and discoverd this one. :)

    Judd Winick is the reason why I fell in love with comics. It was George Perez who made me fall in love with Wonder Woman. It was Grant Morrison who made me fall in love with Emma Frost. Geoff Johns made DC less complicated like that.

    NEW TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT (1989) (1989)

    NEW TEEN TITANS #8 (Jun 1981)
    (5:06) Brad Meltzer: In terms of what I love when I grew up. The best book as far as I'm concern, bar nothing, was Marv Wolfman and George Pérez's Teen Titans. And Marv Wolfman is here, and that is -- (claps).

    I mean, that -- I thank you, sir. That book was -- I can't even tell -- my novels are so affected by that writing -- my comics are affected by that writing. And Identity Crisis is affected by that story. Just from the Judas Contract alone and the idea of a surprise in a comic that I couldn't guess.

    As I felt, as we all get older, we can all guess the endings. Now I can tell you where I was sitting when turned that page and I saw Tara talking to Deathstroke. And going, and there was no internet, no Previews, no nothing. And I just remember thinking, 'No, it's impossible!' And I really felt that affected me forever.

    And that idea of surprise your reader, but not with shock values, but with character. Character! Character! Character!

    That Day in the Life story, was one of the greatest story ever. We pay homage to it in Justice League. But those stories were my bread and butter...

    SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2006 (July 20-23, 2006)
    TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT DVD (2007)
    “The Judas Contract movie will be closer to the original comic than even the show [Teen Titans] was, and the show was very faithful to the spirit of the original,” Wolfman told Newsarama, asked how the movie will be different from DC animation series in the past. “I loved what they did but I'm hoping we can be more adult in the handling of this story.

    ”Whereas the Titans cartoon show was obviously aimed for kids, this is not being aimed at the youngest kids as it will contain mature content. It will be closer to the original comic but hopefully even stronger as we'll have actors, which means we'll be able to do some more subtle material. In comics you have to make readers read the dialogue as you want them to, but of course that's impossible. Here we can have those little verbal moments where a simple ‘grunt’ or ‘sigh’ or sound can replace paragraphs of prose. Because it's a different medium, we alter the way we tell our stories, playing to this medium's strengths as George and I tried to do with the original, playing to the strength of comics.”

    “And yes,” Wolfman added, “Tom [DeSanto] and I intend for the ‘nightgown and cigarette" scene to be there.”

    There were two rooms filled to capacity for the Mark Evanier hosted panel, The Art of Cover. Basil Gogos, George Perez, Neal Adams, Adam Hughes, Brian Boland, Joe Jusko, and DC editor Mark Chiarello were on the panel to chat comics and covers. Also confirmed in this panel was that Adam Hughes was working on the All Star Wonder Woman series.

    (excerpt)

    QUESTION: Evanier: What makes a great cover and which artist inspired them you get into the artistic business?
    GEORGE PEREZ: He stated that that is an easy question to answer since he usually draws both the cover and interior art. He stated that he doesn't like the practice of one artist drawing the cover and another artist drawing the interior art of a comic. He felt that that was cheating the buyer. He stated that he personally likes the challenge of trying to make a new cover each month. He also stated that he loves Rockwell, Salvador Dali, Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, John Buscema and many more. He stated that word balloons are OK to use but only sparingly.

    Mark than asked George if he planned the cover before or after planning the interior art?

    GEORGE PEREZ: He joked about how it depended on how late he was in drawing the comic itself.

    SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2006 (20-23 Jul 2006) - San Diego, California
    Teen Titans: Written by Marv Wolfman and Tom DeSanto, with input from George Perez, this film focuses on the '80s version of the Titans. Though the specific storyline was not confirmed, DC used the cover of the Judas Contract (one of the best Titans tales of all time) during the announcement.

    "This is just the beginning," Levitz assured. In fact, DC want to hear from the fans as to what stories they'd like to see. Levitz stressed that the series was for the fans and would retain the core essence and look of the original tales. The audience shouted a number of possible stories. One, however, earned a promising response from Levitz. "The Dark Knight [Returns], we have talked about."

    The voice talent has not been finalized for these films. DC is not yet certain if the same actors will carry over in the same roles from one film to the next.

    SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2006 (20-23 Jul 2006) - San Diego, California
    As DC Publisher and President Paul Levitz announced at Saturday's DC: One Year Greater panel, DC and Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video are looking to enter the direct to video marketplace in a big way, with three upcoming animated movies: New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, Superman/Doomsday, and The New Frontier.

    Bruce Timm will oversee the projects, and each will be faithful adaptations of the original stories, carrying over the stories as well as the art styles from the comics. As such, Darwyn Cooke, Marv Wolfman and George Perez were all announced as helping with the adaptations.

    Shortly after the announcement, we sat down with Levitz to talk about the new deal, and learn a little more about the larger picture.

    (excerpt)

    NRAMA: In that vein, as you said at the panel, the different features will be similar in style to the art that's in the original comics?
    Paul Levitz: That's the goal, and it's certainly the reason to have George and Darwyn involved. With New Frontier, Darwyn's an animator by trade, so like Marv on Titans, he brings with him a very powerful knowledge of how to translate his own work. Animation's not the same thing as comics, so there are certain translations to be made, but I think you will feel the richness of Darwyn's work come through.

    DC Comics held their major DC Universe-related panel of the Comic-Con weekend Saturday, and we're on hand for a full report.

    (excerpt)

    ddddddd
    Working with Warner Bros. Home Video and WB Animation, the company will launch a new line of direct-to-video DC animated movies that are being designed with DC Comics fans in mind, Levitz said.

    ...The third title in the series will be an animated version of the classic story Teen Titans story “The Judas Contract”, written by Marv Wolfman. Tom DeStano (X-Men) will join Wolfman as co-writer and producer on the film.

    "This is just the beginning," Levitz said. "We're sitting around and thinking of more...so send all your suggestions in."

    Levitz also added that George Perez will be working on the animated Judas Contract as well, and that Bruce Timm will be overseeing all the animated films.

    "We’re looking at more than the last five minutes of history," Levitz said in regards to what will differentiate this from movies such as Ultimate Avengers.

    ...

    DC displayed the George Perez cover to Brave and the Bold #1, a November debuting ongoing series by Waid and Perez. Guess who the first story arcs stars..?

    Posted July 20, 2006 9:30 PM
    By Mike Cotton

    Already known as a man who can pack more characters into a panel, spread or cover than anyone else in comics, George Pérez packed more questions and answers into a 90-minute panel than many creators could dream of on any given con day.

    (excerpt)

    When asked what he thinks about current comics such as Wonder Woman or Avengers that may change continuity that Pérez helped set, the artist boldly said that fans have to remember these are not Pérez characters but Marvel and DC heroes.

    “There were fans who were vehemently against the changes I made in Wonder Woman when I did that work, so it’s hypocritical for me to be against how another creator may change a character I’ve worked on,” he said. “These are Marvel and DC characters—not mine. I just hope fans today enjoy these stories as much as maybe [fans] did when they read my runs.”

    George Perez was once again doing sketches at the ACTOR booth at San Diego. And I was lucky enough to get a sketch from the Maestro himself!

    The question: Which Titans should George draw? I chose the Ravager, since I a.) really like Rose Wilson and b.) thought George may never get the chance to draw her.

    Turns out, George just drew Ravager for the soon-to-be-published double page spread in the INFINITE CRISIS special edition. As previously reported, Perez redrew the double page spread of One Year Later characters for INFINITE CRISIS #7 in the upcoming special edition version. The spread features over 120 characters!

    As for Rose, George mentioned that he drew her with some of Slade's facial features: longer nose, high cheekbones and a slight widow's peak hairline. He thought she should resemble dear ol' dad.

    George mentioned that he was thrilled at the turnout of his panel yesterday. And he's extremely grateful for all his fans after all these years.

    (excerpt)

    On influences: French illustrators [and their level of detail]; Norman Rockwell ["Curt Swam was the Norman Rockwell of comics", says George]; Dali; Escher; and a host of others.

    On the Death of the Golden Age Superman: In INFINITE CRISIS, George said he wanted to treat that scene very carefully: "Dammit, if he's gonna die, I'm going to treat him with respect" George did the scene in shadow, so you didn't see his mangled body. And the last panel initially called for two shining stars in the night; But George changed it to the image of the Golden Age Superman and Lois Lane in their prime. He wanted the last shot of Superman to appear just as he did when he started.

    NEW TEEN TITANS: GAMES (Errata) (2006)

    SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2006 (20-23 Jul 2006) - San Diego, California
    George Perez said Thursday that he's enjoying the Brave and the Bold series he's doing with writer Mark Waid, but that he's already got his eyes on his next project.

    "For a man who's drawn a legion of superheroes, I have never drawn a Legion of Super-Heroes story," Perez said, drawing an enthusiastic response from the crowd, though he admitted that the idea hasn't passed beyond internal discussions at DC.

    (excerpt)

    Still, one job that he won't be returning to any time soon is the Titans' Graphic novel Games. Perez took responsibility for the project's demise, and said that his schedule hadn't allowed him to work on it, and now that he's signed an exclusive contract with DC through the year 2010. DC is interested in seeing other projects first. He refused to rule out returning to the project eventually, but was not optimistic about it.

    "I think I've said what I needed to say about the Titans," he said.

    After some touching speeches, the blue banner was dropped, revealing a huge banner of all 20 stamps, causing a thunderous applause from fans. Levitz was then honored by the USPS, which resulted in even more cheers from the audience. "The first day of the Comic-Con is generally the best day of the year in the business," said Levitz. "And it is for me." He then proceeded to honor the artists in attendance, who art appears on the stamps: Neal Adams, Jerry Robinson, Carmine Infantino, Elizabeth Kane (wife of Bob Kane), Lisa Kirby (on behalf of Jack Kirby), Adam Kubert (on behalf of Joe Kubert), Jim Lee, Edgar May (on behalf of the family of William Moultan Marston), Sheldom Moldoff, George Perez, Mike Royer, Scott Williams and more.

    "It beats the hell out of real work," laughed Levitz who thanked fans for making it possible to work in this industry, telling stories and creating art as a means of making a living. He also joked with Jim Lee, asking him "what else do you have left to do?" as the young artist has seemingly achieved every honor in the industry. Perez also joked that it was foruitous that the USPS chose his one cover without a background, poking fun at his reputation, and added that if another of his covers would have been chosen, "it would have looked like a smudge."

    News: Pérez 2006 Convention Schedule

    November 21, 2005 11:36 pm
     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.
