AVENGERS 30TH ANNIVERSARY POSTER (1994)
AVENGERS ALMIGHTY ANNIVERSARY GEORGE PEREZ LITHOGRAPH (Nov 2004)
Regarding: Comic Book Legends Revealed: George Perez accidentally drew a non-Avenger into his Avengers 30th Anniversary Poster

I do not know were they got their info about the Avengers poster, but it's not from me.

Let me just respond to their claims to me taking it on myself to remove the Shroud from the poster: it never happened. It was George [Perez], who asked me to remove him, he is the artist, and only he could make that call, not me. Also, George never draws anything accidentally. He wanted the Shroud in there the first time and wanted him removed 11 years later. I cannot remember the reason why, George will have to tell you that himself.

Once again, I never talked to these guys ever about this poster so I do not know where they got their info from, and quite frankly, I'm a little annoyed that they would quote me on something I never said.

Best..
Tom Smith
