To fans of Perez’s incredibly detailed art, his almost Spartan design for the White Tiger’s look could appear to be something of a conundrum.

“For someone known for designing some pretty intricate costumes, the simple, streamlined look of the White Tiger was definitely a conscious decision to try something different, and one that emphasized the word ‘white,’” he notes. “In hindsight, I probably should have added some stripes to the costume, but Bill seemed much more enamored with the sheer stark elegance of the white costume. And since it was a black and white magazine, it definitely worked for that format. The facial look for Hector Ayala was based on my brother David, while his mother was definitely inspired by my own.
