    This is a sketch drawn by George, for me, while attending WIZARD WORLD in Chicago this past August! Drawing measures 14" x 17" and is on 3-4 ply BRISTOL BOARD! HE ONLY DID FOUR (4) FULL BODY SKETCHES over the 3 day comic con! A "sizeable" donation for ACTOR, a non profit organization, that helps with retired comic book illustrators and writers, got me the sketch initially! A GREAT GUY (George), A GREAT ORGANIZATION (ACTOR), AND A GREAT SKETCH (Batman/ Spidey)! Last picture is of George and myself after the drawing was completed!

      Over Guice's left shoulder is super-artist George Perez, whose ass was never seen all weekend because it was planted on that chair for the entirety. In San Diego, Perez did 203 sketches over the course of four days and Preview Night. While WizardWorld is only three days, the lines were just as long and just as persistant. When I get the final tally, I'll be sure to print it here.

    TOTALLY TERRIFIC TEAM-UP: JLA/AVENGERS UPDATE
    by Russell Lissau, Contributing Writer
    Posted: August 18, 2001

    The series isn't ready for publication just yet, but work on the much-anticipated team-up of the Justice League and the Avengers is progressing. Really.

    "George Perez is about halfway through the first issue, and it's unbelievable," DC editor Dan Raspler announced Saturday during a Wizard World panel about the future of the DC Universe.

    The crowd went wild at the news, as well as a slide of one of Perez's promotional pieces for the project.

    The four-issue series will be drawn by Perez and written by Kurt Busiek. Raspler is co-editing the project with Marvel's Tom Brevoort.
