Many years ago, my very first published work was in Focus on George Perez from Fantagraphics in 1985.

In 1987, I was sitting in a movie theatre, watching the vampire film The Lost Boys, which features two kids known as "The Frog Brothers" who work in their parents' comic book shop on the pier haunted by the vamps. Lots of comics were featured (including some New Teen Titans issues in a few shots) but one very familiar cover showed up in not one, not two, but THREE different spots in the film! Since Focus on George Perez had a recognizable cover, and the first time was the best view, I shouted out "There's my book!" in the theatre, then glowed about it the rest of the film.

Now, admittedly, it's not like any of the characters picked it up, nor that it was "focused on" (so to speak), but it was THERE.

Yesterday, I got a DVD screen capture tool, so I quickly snapped several decent shots of scenes from the film. For those who don't HAVE the book, it's the yellow cover with the big red lettering which says "George Perez."

Those of you on the GeorgePerez2 list won't get the attachment, but Vu has my permission to post these pics and this letter to the website if he'd like, so you can see them there.

How's THAT for Perez obscura?

Just a quickie since this iPad ability to edit text isn't as full-featured as a desktop version. I wanted to say that it was a surprise to watch my favorite series FRINGE to see CRISIS #7 in the background. In this alternate Earth, Superman died in the arms of Supergirl). You can read more details on the Source DC blog. (images to come later).
