The Tragedy of DC’s TITANS

TITANS (Television Show) (2018)
Warner Bros
In many ways, I agree with HiTop Films. I have been following the development of Titans since 2014 and really wanted it to be a good adaption of Marv Wolfman and George Perez's story - but it was apparent that the show was not meant for me.

In part two of HiTop Films' Titans review, they said that "The story of Titans is Broken" and goes into some good points about the show. Mainly that the characters are not heroic (Jason Todd beats up cops, Starfire straight up murders cops).

HiTop Films writes, "I pray we can finally get a Titans show we all deserve, a Titans show that cares. A show that cares about making a compelling Dick Grayson, a compelling Starfire, a compelling Raven, a compelling Beast Boy and a compelling Titans show."

Comics Pros picks their favorite George Perez covers

posted by Vu Sleeper

From 13thdimension.com/


WONDER WOMAN #20 (Sep 1988)
DC Comics
Excerpt:

Jerry Ordway (Artist; inker on Crisis on Infinite Earths)

Wonder Woman #20. I will say George has done more complex and action-oriented covers that are terrific, but this is the cover I thought of when asked to choose one. I recall very vividly when this issue came out, how striking it was compared against the other comics out that same month. I also loved this storyline in the comic, so I had some emotional investment in the character.

Paul Levitz's thoughts on George Perez's retirement

WORLDS' FINEST #1 (Apr 2012)
DC Comics

George Perez announced his 'retirement' from comics the other day, after probably drawing five or six lifetimes worth of them if we tally up the number of characters drawn, designed, and universes built...not even counting his work as a writer. I've known George since we were both fanzine kids--he was doing some of his earliest art for my Brooklyn pal Jim Glenn's zines--so I watched his career with special interest.

Most, ahem, sane, artists avoid doing the titles that have armies of characters. George lived for those challenges. When Dick Dillin passed away suddenly, George rushed to take up the challenge of the JUSTICE LEAGUE, literally interrupting everything else he was working on to finish the story Dick had just started when his heart gave out.

His TEEN TITANS and CRISIS work with Marv Wolfman literally gave a dramatic rebirth to the DC Universe at a time when we desperately needed it, and his WONDER WOMAN stories coming out of those events are still, to me at least, the best run that character ever had (don't even ask me about why my brief run was an unmemorable as it was).

I didn't get a chance to collaborate with George at length until our WORLDS' FINEST stories, which were a delight. Just sorry we didn't get to do more.

The thing about George is he poured it all onto the page. Not only the incredibly detailed line work you saw, but his sweat and soul. With no disrespect to anyone, I'm not sure there was a harder working artist of my generation. So hard working that he pushed himself to the point of collapse several times. I'm not saying the health problems that he's made public over the years are a direct result of his hard work and self-imposed pressures, but this is a guy who gave it all for his readers. And did it all with a smile the happiest of puppy dogs would be jealous of.

Happy retirement, George, may it be healthier than you expect, and full of good experiences. And I hope to see your smile on the convention circuit more times before we're done.

FANTASTIC FOUR #187 (Oct 1977)
Marvel Comics
Did you know that George Perez drew two different Fantastic Four #187 covers? In 1977, Marvel Comics thought the cover sent to Jim Mooney was lost, so they had George re-draw the cover and Dave Cockrum inked the published cover.
