    GEORGE PÉREZ BRINGS IN OVER $5000 FOR A.C.T.O.R. COMIC FUND AND BILL MANTLO COMBINED

    PRESS RELEASE
    Wizard World Los Angeles Marked The Spot For Pérez’s Recent Fundraising Record


    WIZARD WORLD LOS ANGELES 2005 (18-20 Mar 2003), Los Angeles, California
    LOS ANGELES, CA (May 26, 2005) – George Pérez, a comic book legend in his own right, beat his old convention record of monies raised for A.C.T.O.R. Pérez spent over nine hours at the A.C.T.O.R. booth and raised over $5000.

    Pérez, who has been a supporter and board member of A.C.T.O.R. since its inception in 1999, raised money by doing autograph signings, sketches and two lunch/sketch auctions. The money raised will be split between A.C.T.O.R. and a grant direct from Pérez to Bill Mantlo's guardian to supplement his continued care needs. Mantlo is the popular and prolific Marvel Comics writer of the 1970s and 1980s. A friend of Pérez’s, Mantlo suffered a brain injury after being struck by a car thirteen years ago.

    Mantlo currently resides in a nursing home and outside of immediate family, he currently has little, or no, contact with the 'outside world' on any regular basis. All cards and letters can be sent to Bill Mantlo, c/o Michael Mantlo, 425 Riverside Drive, Apt 12-E, New York, NY 10025.

    A Commitment To Our Roots (A.C.T.O.R.) is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. A.C.T.O.R. creates a financial safety net for yesterdays' creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment. For more information, visit www.ACTORComicFund.org

    There's nothing like starting out a road trip getting rear-ended 30 minutes after you get in the car. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and fortunately it wasn't my car — it was my friend Rowan's car, who was kind enough to offer her car to drive my boyfriend and I to Wizard World LA. Nineteen hours and lots of cigarettes later, we arrived in Long Beach and managed to check into our hotel a few hours early.

    (excerpt)

    This left Artists' Alley virtually empty of convention attendees. If you wanted to have a personal conversation with Billy Tucci (Shi), Josh Middleton (NYX/Sky Between Branches), and Andy Lee (Kabuki), you could just walk right up and have it. This also left booths like Top Shelf and Comic Book Legal Defense Fund empty too, and they had a booth midway through the middle of the convention hall. ACTOR got a hold of George Perez to do some signing, and their booth was next to Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. So that did bring some people by, but for the most part, this convention was purely a DC/Marvel type crowd.

    We're getting there, we're getting there! Sentinels Book 3: Echoes is getting closer to completion and we still hope to have it ready by the end of the summer. It will be worth the wait! Luciano's artwork just keeps getting better and better. Trust me!

    But in the meantime, we have a bunch of new artwork in the guest gallery that we got at the 2005 LA Wizard Convention. One of our favorites of which is an incredible Harlette sketch by Ale Garza! Ale is one of Luciano's favorite artist and this piece is really amazing.

    We even have another piece of art by comic legend, George Perez! We're saving the art for Book 3, but you can see the photo below of George at the con with the drawing of Firebomb! George, as always, was there raising money for ACTOR. He is usually the highest money raiser for them and you can see why. He was sketching all days and chatting with every fan who came by to say hello, never snubbing anyone and always classy. There was even an

    Ebay auction at the con to have lunch with George that raised over $600. No wonder he's a legend!

    Don't forget we'll be at the Big Apple Con next weekend. Stop by and say hello.

    Win Lunch With George Pérez At Wizard World LA
    Industry News, Scoop, Friday, March 11, 2005

    Perez's JLA/Avengers original art is renowned. A sketch like this can be yours, if you place the winning eBay/ACTOR bid.

    The A.C.T.O.R. Comic Fund will host an eBay fundraiser auction beginning today, Friday, March 11, 2005. The winner gets lunch with Avengers/JLA artist George Pérez at Wizard World Los Angeles, plus a single or double full figure drawing done by the artist at lunch. The show runs March 18-20, 2005 in Long Beach, California.

    Pérez, who only appears a few conventions each season, is one of the most popular convention guests on the circuit each year. His well-chronicled stints on New Teen Titans and Avengers, the ultra-high profile JLA/Avengers DC-Marvel crossover, and an upcoming return to Teen Titans have established him with several generations of fans.

    The auction can be found at eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6517992672 and will run until March 16. The lunch will take place on Sunday, March 20.

    new store assist

    Dear Mr Perez

    My name is Michael Lerner and I am an owner of a new bookstore, Pulp Fiction, in Long Beach, California. I would like to share with you a little about our store and philosophy and ask for you input and assistance.

    We opened about six months ago with the idea of marketing our products and services to the general public. In terms of merchandise, we specialize in graphic novels, comic books and manga, along with various other toys, figures and collectibles. However, we offer much more than just a place to shop to our customers. We have art classes, a (Free) library, a graphic novel book club, movie nights and more. Our store is clean, comfortable, well-furnished and lit. We have chairs and coffee available to our patrons and encourage them to sit around and read or hang out with their fellow fans to talk shop. My partner and I have tried to create the type of store that we have always wanted to go to and the type of store that anyone would be comfortable being in and shopping in. In short, we see ourselves as more of a Borders for the graphic novel crowd.

    My partner and I are both social active and our store reflects this. One of our main goals is to promote reading/literacy in general, and of course, reading of graphic novels specifically. Our first promotion, in October, was Give the Treat of Literacy this Halloween. We gave local adults free packets containing Spiderman comic books to hand out on Halloween. This was very successful and popular among locals and we were able to distribute over 6000 comics. We have also sponsored and ran a food drive (Thanksgiving) and toy collections for the underprivileged (with Toys for Tots this past Christmas).

    News: From George Pérez (Feb 2005)

    February 20, 2005 12:00 am
     From George Pérez

    WIZARD WORLD LOS ANGELES 2005 (18-20 Mar 2003), Los Angeles, California
    I am currently inking the incredible Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on a project written by Phil Jimenez, who is also the cover penciler, with me inking Phil. Unfortunately, beyond that, I'm not at liberty to reveal what the project is so I've been calling it "The EZ Company Project" since all three creators share the same last two letters in our family names. DC Comics should be making an announcement relatively soon and it will be a relief to finally be able to talk about it openly.

    Contrary to solicitations I have indeed drawn the cover for FALLEN ANGELS #20. Due to a mix-up in the scheduling it initially appeared that I couldn't do the cover, so the regular team was told to go ahead and draw the cover. When Peter David found out about that he reminded the editor that the deadlines had been pushed back and even though the book had been solicited with another cover, Peter figured few would be bummed out to find that there was a Pérez cover after all.

    I have also drawn a cover for a Marvel Visionaries book spotlighting my 1970's run on FANTASTIC FOUR. Tom Smith colored that piece and, as usual, did a wonderful job.

    I am currently drawing a variant cover for Top Cow's CITY OF HEROES #1 and will be drawing the cover for a CITY OF HEROES novel called "Web of Arachnos". This should be the first of three covers for a series of CoH novels. And since I just mentioned Top Cow, I should also announce that I will be participating in a special 10th Anniversary edition of WITCHBLADE. I will be drawing three pages written by Ron Marz. And as I draw those pages I will be filmed by a video crew for TwoMorrows' DVD companion to its MODERN MASTERS book series.

    There have been other offers, including some covers for Dynamic Forces' RED SONYA and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I also will be providing a cover for DF's STORYTELLER, yet another retrospective on my career. (I am definitely being over-exposed). A cover for ForceWerks' B.A.B.E. FORCE is also on my schedule. There have been other one-shots I've been offered that I'm not yet free to discuss, or yet to accept, but after "The EZ Company Project" I will be primarily focusing my attention on completing GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Inker Mike Perkins has already started on some pages and Tom Smith has 30 pages ready to start so it's up to me to get busy so that Marv Wolfman can start dialoguing the first half of the book.

    As for conventions this year, here's my schedule for 2005 so far.
    February 25-27: Mega Con in Orlando, FL.
    March 18-20: Wizard World Los Angeles in Long Beach, CA
    April 22-24: Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville, PA (I even provided the T-Shirt art)
    July 14-17: Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA
    September 13-17: Comic Book Festival in Avilés, Spain

    Those are the confirmed shows. There is a possibility of more, but I'm trying to limit my time away from the drawing board this year.

    Anyway, I just wanted to announce that I have two more convention appearances this year, so if any of you are going to Wizard World Los Angeles or Crescent City Con in New Orleans, please look me up. Next up, of course, is Megacon in Orlando, Florida. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there, especially my old pals, Gene Colan and George Pérez. Also looking forward to getting together with an even older friend, Roy Thomas who I haven't seen in years - we totally missed each other at San Diego last year (hard to imagine not finding someone in a crowd of a hundred thousand people) and it was Roy's first trip out here in ages.
