BACK ISSUE! #122 (Aug 2020)
TwoMorrows Publishing
Excerpted from John Trumbull's interview with Spencer Beck in BACK ISSUE #122 (Oct 2020):

JOHN TRUMBULL: What's been the biggest adventure in your years of representing [George Pérez]?

SPENCER BECK: That's a tough one. There's been a lot of them. That's not an easy question. There's too many. There's one writer, I can't say the name, that George always wanted to work with in the last decade or two--and he never got the opportunity to work with. When this writer saw George's retirement announcement, he wrote this glowing article about how much he idolized George and regretted how he never had the opportunity to work with him.

TRUMBULL: So it was mutual.

BECK: Yes. I called George and said, "Creator X loves you and wants to work with you. I know you've said you would kill to work with Creator X." And through a mutual best friend of this creator I called him and can't use the words the guy said--but there were some expletives involved! "'Expletive' yes, I would kill for the opportunity [to work with him]. How about this? I'll write a story for him, and the deadline is whenever it's done."

TRUMBULL: So it's going to happen?

BECK: It's going to happen. It might be five years, it might be two years. He said, "Let him do one page every three months. I don't care. I just want the opportunity to put on my resume that I wrote one of the final stories for George Pérez."

TRUMBULL: That really says something.

What If? Omnibus to feature a George Perez cover?

WHAT IF ORIGINAL MARVEL SERIES OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 PEREZ CVR (18 Aug 2021)
Marvel Comics

With Disney+'s What If series coming out, Marvel will be releasing What If? Omnibus to coincide with the series. Coming out August 18, 2021, for $100.

Art and details from Marvel and Previews mentioned a cover by George Perez... but I didn't recognize it as a Perez piece (George has only drawn interior art for What If #15).

A quick search reveals that the original cover What If? #1 (Feb 1977) is by Jim Craig and Joe Sinnott (based on design by John Romita).

UPDATE: comics.org thinks the cover artist is John Buscema or Keith Pollard. Comparing Craig's interior art, I think it looks very different from the cover... so I tend to believe Buscema did the cover artwork. Romita actually made alterations to Sue Storm and Spider-Man, so he's technically a partial cover artist. One thing is for sure, George Perez did not draw that cover.

"George Pérez and the Classical Narrative Style" article in the latest Inks: The Journal of the Comics Studies Society Vol 4 #3 (Fall 2020)

From muse.jhu.edu


INKS: THE JOURNAL OF THE COMICS STUDIES SOCIETY Vol 4 #3 (Fall 2020)
Ohio State University Press
Abstract:

This paper examines the commercially popular but critically neglected artist George Pérez as a means of developing a critical apparatus for studying artists who work within collaborative and industrial systems of comics production. Pérez’s comics are exemplars of the classical narrative style of comics art, refining a set of formal practices that adapt page and panel layouts to match their contents in a manner akin to classical Hollywood cinema, deploying formalism for narrative purposes. Pérez and his peers also display an abiding interest in the mediated image, incorporating the visual frames and narrative strategies of newspapers, film, and television as they depict worlds saturated and shaped by these media. Focusing on The New Teen Titans and Wonder Woman, this paper argues that Pérez’s work demands the development of new reading strategies and should prompt scholars to reevaluate our notions of comics authorship.

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO WONDER WOMAN (Magazine) (08 Jan 2021)
Entertainment Weekly
You can preview some pages from the recently released Ultimate Guide to Wonder Woman 1984 by Entertainment Weekly on Amazon

Looking over the contents, it does not appear they will reprint any George Perez's art (unless it appears in the ridiculous WW plotlines from comics).

The cover does reprint Perez's Wonder Woman... so for completists, you'll need to look for this at newsstands. The magazine came out 8 Jan 2021.

Here's the description of the magazine:

>>>
Diana Prince returns to the big screen in Wonder Woman 1984, a totally rad new adventure that will have fans falling in love with the DC Comic superheroine all over again! In this gorgeously illustrated special issue devoted entirely to the Amazonian Princess, the editors of Entertainment Weekly celebrates Wonder Woman in all her forms: from her groundbreaking girl-power comic book debut 80 years ago to the beloved 1970s TV show starring Lynda Carter to Gal Gadot’s action-star spin on the first superheroine in 2017’s Wonder Woman. Includes:
  • Behind-the-scenes photos and exclusive interviews with stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal and director Patty Jenkins
  • The evolution of Wonder Woman’s comic roots, from prim skirts to go-go boots to her modern-day armor
  • The surprising story of Wonder Woman’s creator—the man who dreamed up her Golden Lasso of Truth also invented the lie-detector test and much more!
Please note that this product is an authorized edition published by the Meredith Corporation and sold by Amazon. This edition is printed using a high quality matte interior paper and printed on demand for immediate fulfillment.

Robotic Stooges homages Infinity Gauntlet #1 cover

ROBOTIC STOOGES #1 (Apr 2021)
American Mythology
ROBOTIC STOOGES:American Mythology has announced an April launch for Robotic Stooges.

Here's how the book is described:

"If you remember Saturday morning cartoons, you remember the Robonic Stooges, which originally aired as its own series in 1977 -78. The series featured Moe, Larry, and Curly as robonically-altered bumbling superheroes who operated from their very own junk yard headquarters under the direction of Agent 000 (pronounced Oh-Oh-Oh), who ran the Super Hero Employment Agency! The series was developed by Norman Maurer, Moe Howard's son-in-law and the creative force behind The Three Stooges comics of the 60s and 70s. The standalone series ran for 16 episodes, and American Mythology Comics decided, well, that just wasn¡¯t enough robo-stoogeness!"

The book will launch with "The Imbecile Gauntlet," by Three Stooges¡¯ long-time scribe, S.A. Check. The story pits The Robonic Stooges against the inter-galactic threat known as Oreganose.

The second story for the issue, "Fright at the Museum," was written by Jordan Gershowitz, with art by Jorge Pachecho and Philip Murphy.

Cover for the issue is by Eric Shanower and Pacheco.
