Inhumans #8 Review

From scoop.previewsworld.com


INHUMANS #8 (Dec 1976)
Marvel Comics

Review: The addition of a second mobile city makes this issue feel a bit like a rerun, though writer Doug Moench gets good mileage out of the cities’ clash. Moench’s foreshadowing of the “War Between the Three Galaxies” continues to tantalize, but there better be some payoff soon. George Pérez returns as artist for one issue, and his pencils hold up much better to Don Perlin’s inks. Of all the Bronze Age artists, Pérez seems least inker-dependent, as the strength of his early work comes more from strong storytelling than refined pencils.

Grade: B

Cool factor: George Pérez’s storytelling. His three-issue absence from this title just made hearts grow fonder.

NEW TEEN TITANS #1 (Aug 1984)
DC Comics
When you buy older comics on digital, some companies do not include the letter pages or original advertisements.

Here's an excerpt of the New Teen Titans #1 (1984) letter page, written by Marv Wolfman:

"You see, four years ago people laughed when we said we were reviving a comic DC had canceled twice before. When George Perez was visiting a comic shop at the time of the Titans' premiere, he was told that the store hadn't ordered many copies of TITANS #1 because in six months it would be canceled and forgotten. DC, they felt, hadn't had a certified hit in years. Well, that was about to change.

By our sixth issue, we were DC's best selling comic. Within the year whenever I'd visit comic conventions which featured costume parades, I'd almost always see a Titans costume among the elves and mutants that seemed to prevail. Las year I found a Titans statuary, mini-figures, pins, drawings, and even a magazine explaining how to fit the Titans into role-playing games."

George Perez on His 5 Favorite TEEN TITANS Covers

Aug. 14, 2018 by Joe McCabe


...Perez recently visited our offices, and we asked the master to share with us his five favorite covers from his time on the beloved book. Here are his picks...

The New Teen Titans vol. 1 #1

"I liked the first couple of issues, because I got to ink myself. Which I was too slow to do on a regular basis."

The New Teen Titans vol. 1 #13

"It's an atmospheric cover. That’s one of my favorites."

The New Teen Titans vol. 1 #38

"The 'Who is Donna Troy?' cover was something different. It was using a different medium."

The New Teen Titans vol. 1 #39

"Oh yeah, this was me at full throttle... Even though I enjoyed inking 'Crossroads' -- the one where Dick and Wally give up being Titans -- I wish that I had maybe not inked that one and instead inked 'Who is Donna Troy?'. That one would’ve been fun. I inked the first three pages of 'Who is Donna Troy?', the intro. Which they mis-colored unfortunately in trying to get that film noir effect. That’s a regret, that I wasn’t fast enough to ink my own work."

Tales of the Teen Titans vol. 1 #42

"Most of the ones in 'The Judas Contract', because that was obviously unusual to do segmented covers. There were multiple images there."

George Perez requested Kurt Busiek to write Avengers (1998)

AVENGERS  #1 (Feb 1998)
Marvel Comics
In an interview with Kurt Busiek, he said that it was George Perez that requested him as writer, despite the fact that, at the time, Busiek already had his hands full with Iron Man and Thunderbolts.

KB: ... They did, and they offered Avengers to [artist] George Perez, and George asked for me to write it. It was simply a matter of being in the right place at the right time. They wanted to restore the characters to their classic heights, and I was considered to be a guy who knew how to do that.
