CAPTAIN AWARENESS: ASSAULT ON CAMPUS #1 (1998)
2-D Graphics

Danny DeAngelo, the creator of Captain Awareness: Assault on Campus (which features George Perez and Phil Jimenez, Dick Giordano, Norm Breyfogle, Colleen Doran, Alex Ross, Mike Wieringo, Alex Ross, etc) has died.

It's funny, but when I was doing my comic book inventory, I ran across a copy of Captain Awareness that I didn't realize I own.  It was autographed by Dick Giordano, Alex Ross, George Perez, Colleen Doran, and, of course, Danny DeAngelo. I couldn't believe I only paid $12.95 for it, it was worth it for just Dick Giordano... let alone with all these great other creators.

Thanks to Ilke passing along the sad news.

Danny DeAngelo wrote about Captain Awareness:


I originally wanted to be a cartoonist and draw comic books, but I can no longer draw as well as I once used to. I eventually realized that I would never be able to get steady work as an artist, so I tried my hand at self-publishing a comic book called CAPTAIN AWARENESS to promote awareness of sexual assault. I was able to enlist several well-known comic book artists to contribute artwork for the book and tried selling it to rape crisis centers and schools. Unfortunately, it didn't sell enough copies to warrant my self-publishing any further comics.

While promoting CAPTAIN AWARENESS at a comic book convention, I became involved with Cartoonists Across America, an organization of cartoonists who create comics to promote reading to children. I participated in several of their comics and events for a few years. I now occasionally write articles about comics for BACK ISSUE and G-FAN magazines and am hoping to get a book published someday.

DC Collectibles at Toy Fair in New York

NEW TEEN TITANS MULTI-PART STATUE SET (2018)
DC Comics
The DC Collectibles booth is one of my favorite stops at Toy Fair. There’s always an eclectic selection and usually a fair number of items that have me calculating my budget for the months ahead.

This year, the best item far and away is the 7-piece The New Teen Titans statue set, based on George Perez’s artwork. The 6-inch-scale statues are due to be released on a staggered schedule starting late this summer, so you can buy them individually (at $80 a pop) or collect them all and recreate Perez’s classic The New Teen Titans #1 cover.

Bedrock City Interview

BEDROCK CITY COMIC (Signing) (24 Feb 2018)
Clear Lake, Texas
There's a lot of yada yadas in the first few minutes, so if you skip 30 minutes, the actual interview will start. Direct download (50mb) at uncannyuniverse.podbean.com

Some notable items from the George Perez interview:

• George Perez is basically "retired". He admits to taking too long to draw, due to his deteriorating eye sight.  Plus the royalties from Teen Titans, he is comfortable financially that he doesn't have to work.
• When asked if he wants to write for Marvel or DC, George absolutely refused. It's understandable, as his last writing gig on Superman (in 2011) had numerous changes, re-writes, and disapproval (even though he had approval three months prior), that it left a bitter taste in his mouth. Not surprised that he will not be returning to writing for the major publishers.
• Strangest commission was Crisis #7 Recreation, but with all the characters laughing and smiling.
George will be attending Comic Conventions in 2019.
• The next attendance will be at Dragon*Con 2018, but "as a plus one" (as an attendee)
• Two characters George wanted to draw were Judge Dredd and Vampirella ("for obvious reasons"), as he never got the opportunity to draw them because he was usually signed to Marvel or DC Comics.

Hidden drama on the original art for Silver Surfer #116

SILVER SURFER #116 (May 1996)
Marvel Comics
George Perez took over the writing chores with Silver Surfer #111 and inherited the previous art team of Tom Grindberg and Bill Anderson.

For whatever reason, a new art team of Scot Eaton and Don Hudson took over with #117.  On the last Grindberg/Anderson issue of #116, there were notes written back and forth on the original art.
  • George Perez: "Well Bill, it's been nice working with you. Vaya con dios!
  • Bill Anderson: "George - I know you're happy I'm off the book, are you happy now that I can't feed my 5 year old son!?"
