Bedrock City Interview

There's a lot of yada yadas in the first few minutes, so if you skip 30 minutes, the actual interview will start. Direct download (50mb) at uncannyuniverse.podbean.com

Some notable items from the George Perez interview:

• George Perez is basically "retired". He admits to taking too long to draw, due to his deteriorating eye sight.  Plus the royalties from Teen Titans, he is comfortable financially that he doesn't have to work.
• When asked if he wants to write for Marvel or DC, George absolutely refused. It's understandable, as his last writing gig on Superman (in 2011) had numerous changes, re-writes, and disapproval (even though he had approval three months prior), that it left a bitter taste in his mouth. Not surprised that he will not be returning to writing for the major publishers.
• Strangest commission was Crisis #7 Recreation, but with all the characters laughing and smiling.
George will be attending Comic Conventions in 2019.
• The next attendance will be at Dragon*Con 2018, but "as a plus one" (as an attendee)
• Two characters George wanted to draw were Judge Dredd and Vampirella ("for obvious reasons"), as he never got the opportunity to draw them because he was usually signed to Marvel or DC Comics.

Hidden drama on the original art for Silver Surfer #116

posted Feb 16, 2018, 12:06 AM by Vu Nguyen   [ updated Feb 16, 2018, 12:10 AM ]

From Vu

SILVER SURFER #116 (May 1996)
Marvel Comics
George Perez took over the writing chores with Silver Surfer #111 and inherited the previous art team of Tom Grindberg and Bill Anderson.

For whatever reason, a new art team of Scot Eaton and Don Hudson took over with #117.  On the last Grindberg/Anderson issue of #116, there were notes written back and forth on the original art.
  • George Perez: "Well Bill, it's been nice working with you. Vaya con dios!
  • Bill Anderson: "George - I know you're happy I'm off the book, are you happy now that I can't feed my 5 year old son!?"

BEDROCK CITY COMIC (Signing) (24 Feb 2018)
Clear Lake, Texas
Due to overwhelming demand for the George Perez signing, we've planned the following wristband procedure to help make your day better.

1) Numbered wristbands will be handed out at 9:00 AM at the Clear Lake Location on 2/24. You may then leave and come back to the store at noon to line back up outside in order of the number on your wristband. The signing line will not be allowed in the store until 30 minutes prior to the signing.

2) You will be allowed a maximum of 15 items signed and only one turn through the line.

3) We do expect to accommodate everyone who joins us for the signing before 5 P.M., but of course, we are mere mortals and sometimes unexpected circumstances arise.

Sterilite Large ShowOffs Storage Container is perfect for Modern Age comic books

posted Feb 13, 2018, 6:55 PM by Vu Nguyen   [ updated Feb 13, 2018, 7:04 PM ]

From Vu

After buying all of the Sterilite plastic bins (8 in total) at my local Walmart (I will be driving to other Walmart this week to purchase more), I can tell you more about the Sterilite.

Here are some advantages over the typical cardboard comic boxes:

• It's about the same price or only slightly more than a short cardboard ($6 vs $5-$6)
• It's sturdier, does not bend or tear easily
• Waterproof-ish: as long as standing water is less than 8 inches, your comics will be safe
• Easy to carry (with one hand!)
• See through so you can tell what is in your bin

The only disadvantage I can think of that the Sterilite holds about 30 less comics and is not collapsible (the comic boxes can be flatten if you're not using them).

Here are some answers to your questions:

1. Are they acid-free?

Yes, according to their website: "Our clear (see-through) products are acid-free, and safe for storing photos, fabrics, craft, or hobby items and other keepsakes."

2.  The edges are rounded - is it causing any issues with the bottom corners of your comics?

No, the box is actually slightly larger than a modern comic book, the book does not make contact to the corner.

3. Can the lid handle support the weight when full of comics, though?

Yes, I carried two boxes at a time (one in each hand), the full box is about 16-17 pounds.  However, you must make sure the two side latches are securely latched on. It's sometime really easy to unhook it.

4. Where can I buy this?

Sterilite actually don't have it on their official website.  I bought these bins at Walmart for $5.98 each (prices may varies depending on locations). I have not seen it sold anywhere else, such as Target.

5. How many comics can it hold?

About 120 comics. You can probably squeeze in more if you don't use bags and boards.

6. Are they stack-able?
Yes!  I think they designed them this way. The rounded top fits under the curve of the bottom.

7. Can I get another color, other than "Spicy Lime"?

I have not seen this item in any other color.  The similar blue-latched box are not the same dimensions.

Remember, these Sterilite aren't designed for comics. Hopefully, enough of you guys write in and ask them, maybe they'll design something exclusively for collectors (like 100% waterproof seals) or comic book action panels... or spicy orange.

Additional details:

The Sterilite Large ShowOffs Storage Container
is a great solution for storing, organizing and carrying small items around the home, office, or classroom. Durable latches ensure that the lid remains securely attached to the base, and a comfortable handle helps with sturdy, one-handed carrying. The clear base allows for easy identification of the contents inside. This storage box accommodates letter-size hanging file folders.

• Overall Assembled Size: 14 1/4" x 9 5/8" x 12 1/4"
• Clear base for quick identification of contents
• Durable latches secure the lid to the base
• Comfortable handle for one-handed carrying
• Accommodates letter size hanging file folders
