Item number 6500481375: Crossgen Chronicles #3 Signed George Perez NR
Start time: Dec-19-04 23:27:11 PST
Ends: Dec-29-04 23:27:11 PST
You are bidding on an issue of Crossgen Chronicles #3 signed by George
Perez. Now I'm not going to lie to anyone, Crossgen comics suck. They
sign the greatest writers in the world but they don't put good stories
together; however, this one's not about the story. It's about the
signature on the cover and the art in the book. George Perez (Crisis on
Infinite Earths) art is AMAZING. I'm not the type to buy a comic for
the art (I'm more of a story guy than an art guy) but George Perez is
amazing. He is a legend. This is signed by him and has a certificate
of authenticity from Midtown Comics in New York City.

I feel like a very small fish in a very big pond!

I've often visited the Comicart-L site to drool over all the amazing artwork but
I finally decided to take the plunge and become a member myself! I'm nowhere
near the level that most of you guys are but I just wanted to be a part of all
I mostly deal in sketchs....I'm one of those guys you always see running around
the conventions with their sketch books like a chicken without their head. I
actually only have one peice of published art; The cover to Teen Titans #48 (the
original series) which is my pride and joy!
I'm a big George Perez fan! He is an artistic God and also an absolute
Gentleman! My grail is to one day own on of his Titans covers (if I can pry one
from anybodies hands!). I'm also a HUGE Alex Ross fan!
I've included in my gallery a few of my sketchs...there were so many to choose
from I just flipped through and grabbed a few that caught my eye and brought a
smile to my face; Over time I'll be switching them in and out so I can share as
many as possible because to me there are so many worth sharing!! Thanks so much
for taking a look and if you have any questions or just want to B.S. about art
feel free to e-mail me at MikeNegin[a]aol.com.
Lowry Gallery Items
Ben "The Thing" Grimm smokin' his everlovin' cigar
I met Joe Sinnott at the Classic Comic Convention in White Plains, NY in 2000.
It was an amazing convention with a lot of comic legends including Carmine
Infantino, Joe Kubert, and Jerry Robinson. I was lucky enough to spend some time
with Joltin' Joe Sinnott. He told some great stories about Jack Kirby and the
old Marvel Bullpen (and lack thereof). Joe drew me this amazing sketch of the
Everlovin' Blue eyed Thing! Thanks Joe! You're a true Legend!
Hawkman & Hawkgirl
A few years back there was a Yahoo Club and website devoted to the JSA called
the Justice Society of America Appreciation Association; A few comic
professionals frequented the site and a couple even donated some artwork. When I
saw Buzz at the San Diego Comicon 2001 I told him how much I loved the Hawkman /
Hawkgirl piece that he had done for the JSAAA; I was ecstatic when he was
willing to recreate it for me! It took him most of the weekend but it was well
worth the wait! Thanks Buzz!
Jack Knight Starman
I was a big fan of the James Robinson Starman series and when I got the chance
to meet Tony Harris at the San Diego Comicon 2001 there was no other option but
to get a Jack Knight Starman sketch!
Mary Jane Watson in Spidey Suit
I saw Mark Bagley at The Madsion Square Garden Convention in NYC this year and I
asked him for a Mary Jane sketch. He drew MJ in nothing but the top to Spidey's
costume. As he handed me the sketch he said the with a big smile on his face
that this was the adult Mary Jane from the regular Spidey books and NOT the MJ
from Ultimate Spider-man book! He laugh and said the Ultimate MJ was an underage
girl and that he could get arrested if he drew her like this!!! ;-) Thanks for
the great sketch Mark!
Mera Queen of Atlantis
I saw Jim Califiore at the Madision Square Garden Show in NYC this year; I loved
his run on Aquaman so I asked if I could get a sketch of Atlantis' King. Jim
politely said "He couldn't do it"; He had drawn so many Aquaman sketchs that he
just couldn't do another one. So I figured that if I couldn't get the King of
Atlantis I'd settle for the Queen. Jim was more than happy to draw this
beautiful sketch of Mera for me and in the end I'm happier with it that I would
have been with an Aquaman Sketch! The detail on it is amazing! Thanks Jim!
Scarlet Witch Sketch
I saw George again at this year's Madision Square Garden convention (New York Sci-Fi & Fantasy Creators Convention 2002); As always
it was an absolute pleasure to see George! He held court at the convention like
a king...I spent hours listening to him tell stories, answer questions and tell
jokes. My son had just been born a few months earlier and it was my first time
out of the house since his birth. I couldn't think of a better way to spend that
day then hanging out with George Perez! and even though money was a little tight
because of the baby I couldn't help but get something from him.....And as you
can see, even from something as simple as a Scarlet Witch headshot, why George
is considered the master!!! The detail on this is amazing!!!When I look at it I
feel like Wanda is staring back at me!!! Thanks again George!!! You gave a very
tired new father a real treat!
Starfire and Wondergirl Commission
George's New Teen Titans is the reason that I'm collecting comics today! I have
always wanted a George Perez Titans cover! but I know that they are next to
impossible to find and off the charts price wise when they do show up. When I
caught up with George at Midtown comics in NYC (Midtown Comics, NY - Jun 15, 2001) I told him how disappointed I was
that I would probably never get to own one of his Titans covers. He said that
there was nothing he could do about that but if I was interested I could
commission him to do a Titans piece! He really didn't have the time (and I
really didn't have the money) to do a full blown cover quality piece but what we
worked out was more than enough to make me giddy like a school girl! And one of
the best parts is I got to brainstorm with George about the piece, each of us
pitching ideas back and forth until we came up with the different elements that
made up the whole. Thanks again George!...."working" with George Perez was
really this fanboy's dream come true! As always your the Best!!!
Teen Titans 48 Cover (1977)
This is the cover to Teen Titans #48 (The original series). It's the only piece
of published art I own and it is my pride and joy! It's a little yellow, has a
couple of stains and it's missing the comics code and Mal's name but it's my
baby! I'm a big Titans fan and when I saw it I just had to have it! Thanks to
Mitch from Graphic Collectibles for giving me a chance to own a peice of Titans
History! I even caught up with Rich Buckler a few years back and got him to sign
it for me!
I am a big George Perez fan! He is the whole reason I got into collecting comics
in the first place! I had read comics as a little kid but just threw then out;
But when I saw New Teen Titans #1 drawn by Perez I knew I had to keep it
forever...and the rest is history! I met George for the first time in Chicago in
1999. I was so excited I could barely speak! My wife explained to George that
the studdering mess before him was actually one of his biggest fans! George
being the gentleman that he is and realizing how awe struck I was, got up from
the table, shook my hand and even gave me a big hug and thanked me for being a
fan! I had waited most of my life for that day and to top it all off George drew
me this beautiful Wonder Woman sketch! (which I had Tom Smith color a year
later). It was really this comic fan's dream come true! Thanks so much
George!....Your The Best!!!
I caught up with Steve Rude at the Big Apple Convention in NYC this year. I'm
not a big nexus fan but I had always loved Steve's art. When I asked him if he
would do a Wonder Woman Sketch for me he just looked at me blankly for a second
and then turned my sketch book sideways and said with a sly little smirk "I got
an idea!". The result is this little beauty of a sketch you see below! Thanks

Comics & The City
COMICS & THE CITY (June 2001)
written by Brian Jacks
So in the middle of all this comic love sat Mark Waid and George Perez
behind a card table. Signing hundreds of comics didn't seem to faze
these pros a bit as they talked to their fans by the dozens. Perez
managed to sell out his entire allotment of personal sketches, which
shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, especially to whoever got the
Nightwing art I witnessed him doing. What was Waid doing while the
Hawaiian-shirt was drawing, you ask? Only being surrounded by his own
female groupies, thank you very much. Oh yes, Waid is quite the ladies'
man. Don't let the tough exterior fool you; he's silky smooth, baby.
The white Shaft.
Who's the white comics pro that's a sex machine to all the chicks...
As would be expected with any signing, there was at least one hardcore
freaky mental patient who just haaad to try to steal my signed Empire #1
(with Crimson-Plague back-up story). Luckily, I was able to stop the
Blair Witch before he got out the door with my property.
I thought the signing went terrific, and so apparently did Waid. "One
of the best signings I've attended EVER," he told us. "The folks at
Midtown Comics always take care of their guests, and this event was no
exception. The fans were pleasant and enthusiastic, and I really, REALLY
have to do more signings with George Perez, since I've never seen this
many female comics fans outside of a Neil Gaiman reading." Whoa, tiger.
