George Perez receives the Will Eisner Hall of Fame Award George Perez canceled all comic book convention, because of recent heart attack …

Today, December 9th, is the 20th anniversary of my little George Perez Website (george-perez.net), a website dedicated to comic book artist George Perez.

I first discovered Perez’s work with Crisis on Infinite Earths #1 in April 1985 and have been collecting his art since then. In order to maintain a growing database of my Perez checklist, I had hand-coded html files, meant for my personal computer only.

After securing a webhost via Fresno State University, on December 9, 1998, I’ve decided to upload what I had written onto the world wide web. You have to remember, this was in 1998, when the internet was in its infancy.

The checklist remained somewhat static until I started collecting George Perez news in April 2000, and thus upgraded the website to version 2. Throughout the years, the website went onto many different servers, but ultimate, trying to keep cost down, I had to eventually had to shut down the website on July 10, 2007.

The current Version 4 of the George Perez Website went online Jul 12, 2008 3:56 PM, just slightly one year after it was shut down.

I’m still very proud of my work on the website and hope to be online for another twenty years.

Brief timeline:

  • December 9, 1998 - Version 1
  • May 6, 2000 - Version 2
  • October 27, 2006 - Version 3
  • July 10, 2007 - on break for one year
  • Jul 12, 2008 3:56 PM - Version 4 (current version)
  • December 9, 2018 - 20th Anniversary

And thank you to my supporters over the years: George, Ilke, Tony, Marcus, Andy, Doug, and too many to mention. You guys know who you are.

    Vu here. It's been a long time since I actually wrote about what's going on.

    I've recently updated the main news page to display a Twitter feed to show any "perezartist" so I can keep track of what's going on. Unfortunately, the ad takes up the entire length of the webpage that I had to hide portion of it. I don't think anyone is complaining.  Let me know if you're having difficulties viewing page.  I've optimize the look for iPad, but it should display just fine on a regular computer browser.   The first table will automatically scale to your screen. 

    UNFORTUNATELY: If you are viewing on a screen smaller than 1280 1024 pixels, it may look awful.  If this affects you, please email me at vu at weheartmusic.com and if I get enough complaints, I will redesign the page.

    For most people, the website should look fine. See images below for comparison:

    I'm not too crazy about Facebook, but for those who would rather keep updated on things exclusively through the service, I've created a page: facebook.com.  You can "like" it and updates will appear on your newsfeed. 

    When google open up their Google+ service, I will also create a page for that.

    Here's some music for the weekend:

    >>>

    KREAYSHAWN
    kreayshawn.tumblr.com

    I normally don't write about hip-hop, but it's really hard to ignore lady rapper Kreayshawn. I first heard about her from The Daily, the description I took away from reading the article was that she the "anti-Rebecca Black" and how she wasn't very "Disney".

    She drinks and she smokes and she doesn't give a f___. She's also into tumblr, twitter, fashion (but hell to the no to Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, or Prada), and eye-gouging animated gifs.

    With over nine million youtube views for her break out hit song, "Gucci Gucci", it's easy to see why Columbia Records signed her up quickly.

    The gadget spec URL could not be found
    I am in the middle of updating old archive material and breaking down the checklist structure (for instance Superman), so you will likely see broken links to images.  Please be patience.

    Going through version 3, I noticed that there was an old messageboard (which admittedly was never popular with few users and feedback).  

    Update: I've added a Google+ button. I can't seem to get it to work with my profiles.google.com account.  Let me know if you're having trouble getting it to work either, right now it just shows "zero".
