George Pérez Supanova MasterClass Recap
Posted by Matthew Vella on Jun 22, 2013
In 2014, writer and illustrator George Pérez will be celebrating 40
years of professional experience in the comic book industry. On June
21st 2013, Supanova Sydney
kicked off with an intimate MasterClass led by Pérez exclusively for
those with a Supa-Fan Pass. For those unaware of his work, Pérez has
worked on Avengers, Wonder Woman and even co-created The New Teen Titans
Sporting an awesome M&M’s shirt, Pérez wasn’t shy of telling
everyone he had never taken an art class and wasn’t even sure what he
was going to do, but the result regardless was a very entertaining and
informative illustration class focusing on how he likes to tell stories
Firstly, he took suggestions from the audience to draw his first page.
This resulted in drawing a story of an airforce combat, ending with a
horse being ejected out of plane…for some reason. Pérez was open enough
to admit he hates drawing planes and when he once had to draw horses for
an Avengers story when he wasn’t used to drawing them. He did so
anyways to challenge himself, stating that if an actor can’t ride a
horse he will learn to do so for the film or the actor will lose his
job. Pérez came across as a man who enjoys stepping out of his comfort
zone in regards to illustration, as he knows it will often lead to
improvement. He stated “If I’m cursing at a writer when I see the script
I’ll be a better artist. The more I hate you, the more I’ll love you.”

The next step in creating the X-Men #112 tribute cover is the colouring
and we're proud to showcase a wonderful Aussie talent, Eddy Swan (http://eddyswanstudio.daportfolio.com/
), who's superbly applied the finishing touches to George Perez's art. Here it is before and after!
With Sydney's Comic-Book King & VIP tickets sold out and Perth's
getting there on both counts, you better make a bee-line to Artists'
Alley where George and Chris Claremont will be selling the remaining
editions for $50 each which they'll happily sign for you on the spot.
Only six sleeps to Sydney and thirteen to Perth!
the classic X-Men? Love George Perez and Chris Claremont? Well the Ltd
Ed (300) print commemorating the 35th Anniversary of their collaboration
on (Uncanny) X-Men #112 and their appearing together at Supanova, now,
is on its way and we have George's gorgeous pencils and inks to share
Out the 300 prints, 40 each are going to our Sydney & Perth VIPs with another 50 each to our Comic-Book
King ticket-holders. With Sydney VIP and Comic-Book King tickets sold
out, and with Perth having sold over half of the allocation per ticket,
the remaining 120 prints are going to disappear quickly at the awesome
price of only $50 each with George and Chris available to sign them for
you at the expos.
They'll be on sale where George and Chris are signing in Artists' Alley while stocks last.
