(W) Jess Harrold (A/CA) George Perez

Celebrating the artistic legacy of a true Marvel Comics legend! George Pérez first wowed fans in the 1970s, building a phenomenal reputation as a super-team illustrator without peer on AVENGERS, INHUMANS and FANTASTIC FOUR! His talents graced the super hero action of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE, the martial-arts mayhem of DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU and the monster madness of Man-Wolf in CREATURES ON THE LOOSE! Years later, Pérez demonstrated his cosmic grandeur by wiping out half the Marvel Universe along with Thanos in INFINITY GAUNTLET! And as the Avengers made a heroic return in 1998, so too did Pérez, joining writer Kurt Busiek to usher Earth's Mightiest into a new era of greatness. Nobody can draw an army of heroes in a single image better than George Pérez can!

MARVEL PREMIERE: FEATURING MAN-WOLF #45 (Dec 1978)
Marvel Comics
In the mid-1970s, a young George Pérez was paired with Mr. [David Anthony] Kraft on Man-Wolf.

“We were both working on this series that frankly no one cared about and Dave just took the ball and ran with it,” Mr. Pérez said in a phone interview. “He took the character into wonky territory: Outer Space, other dimensions, floating cities. He had this very wild imagination and he thought outside the box. That series is unlike any I’ve ever done since.”

JLA/AVENGERS #1 (Errata) (1983)
DC Comics/Marvel Comics
Here's what I've been doing the past couple of months. When I was inking the pages I realized I could actually make a whole comic book so that's what I've been doing. I also wanted to include my favorite AD's from the late 70's and early 80's. It was time consuming to actually redraw the AD's but I wanted this comic to feel like it was from 1983. Hope you guys enjoy this little teaser. This is still a WIP so things might change.

Longtime George Perez fanzine Pacesetter strike down by copyright claim

PACESETTER: THE GEORGE PEREZ MAGAZINE #11 (Dec 2010)
Tony Lorenz

Wow, this is not the way I want to celebrate the 20th anniversary of PACESETTER: The George Perez Magazine (three issue, titled the George Perez Newsletter and 16 issues title PACESETTER). PACESETTER is no more.

I received an e-mail from my printers Lulu, that PACESETTER #11 (published in 2012) “may” of violated their copyright policy and in the same e-mail without reaching out to me about the issue in question they terminated my account, canceling all issue of PACESETTER. In their e-mail there was no detail of what “may” have been the violation and they never gave me a chance to fix the problem.

After several weeks of hearing nothing from them, they final replied saying that I can fill a form out on my case to their legal department, mind you they still haven’t told me what “may” have been the violation. I’ve decided to just retire PACESETTER. My gut feeling it was DC Comics that may have made the complaint, since they are under new management. I’m not sure though.

I still remember back in 2000 when I brought my crazy idea to George and to my surprise he was very flattered and gave me his blessing. After I got the green light from George, I reached out to Marvel and DC Comics on what my plans were for the magazine and they too gave me the ok to publish my magazine. Very sad to see it end this way.

I want to take the time to thank George for all his amazing work that he has done in his great career. I still feel the same when I open a book George has done when I first discovered his work at age 10 as I do now at age 55. I also want to thank Marcus Mebes, the real unsung hero of PACESETTER, without him it would not have lasted more than one issue, let alone 19. Vu Nguyen, his George Perez website has been major for keep my magazine updated with all the latest news, info and checklist material. Ilke Hincer one of the biggest Perez fans out there, he always amazes me how he can find the rarest of Perez items. Eric Sellers another big Perez fan, he actually took charge on a couple issues of PACESETTER.

I want to thank everyone that has contributed to PACESETTER over the years, without you there never would be a PACESETTER: The George Perez Magazine. Like our motto has always been, BY PEREZ FANS, FOR PEREZ FANS. Lastly I want to thank everyone who supported PACESETTER with their hard earned money, PACESETTER was not cheap and I always wished I could have had a lower cover price.

It has been a great 20 years, time flies when you are having fun. I guess good things do come to an end.

DOCTOR STRANGE #29 (Jun 1978)
Marvel Comics
This page really has it all- The Avengers, the Defenders and the two best panels are Stephen and Clea just living in the Sanctum Sanctorum. Big bonus that George had his hand in this page. I really just love everything about it.

Here is what HA has to say: Tom Sutton, George Perez, and Ernie Chan Doctor Strange #29 Story Page 3 Original Art (Marvel, 1978). A classic Doctor Strange page featuring Beast, Yellowjacket, and Nighthawk. This is the page referred to by Roger Stern in Marvel Masterworks: Doctor Strange #7, in which he tells how Sutton drew the "human" Beast, and George Perez quickly came in and redrew him with fur. A fun anecdote about a great page! Ink over graphite and blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Slight toning, production trimmed top right corner, paste-ups in the bottom margin, tape residue on the top and bottom edges, oil and spot staining, with light handling wear. Signed by Sutton in the bottom margin and in Very Good condition. Thanks to Ilke
