Marvel Comics

1st printing. Collects Silver Surfer (1987-1998 2nd Series) #123-138, Silver Surfer (1968-1970 1st Series) -1, and ANNUAL '97.

A new beginning!

The Silver Surfer is back on Earth, but the world he's returned to is not the same one he left. The Fantastic Four and Avengers have fallen to Onslaught - and with the Surfer cut off from his memories and emotions, can he even grieve for them? Perhaps he can with the aid of the first Earth woman who taught him compassion: blind sculptor Alicia Masters! A brutal battle against the rampaging Hulk leads to an eye-opening encounter with Doctor Strange - but as Alicia and the Surfer begin a journey through time and space, mind and soul, can the Surfer cope with the return of a long-forgotten foe and a startling revelation about his home planet, Zenn-La? Or will the demonic Mephisto finally claim his silver soul?

Guest-starring Spider-Man, Daredevil and Alicia's father, the villainous Puppet Master!

Softcover, 464 pages, full color. Rated T

NOTE: Book 13 of the Silver Surfer Epic Collection - Years Covered: 1996–1998.

SOJOURN / LADY DEATH #1 (Errata) (12 May 2004)
CrossGen Comics
FINALLY at the of today I was able to meet Mr. George Perez. He has been an enormous influence to both as an artist and writer.

I had inked one of his unpublished pages from the Sojourn/Lady Death crossover (kudos to jaymtaylor for figuring it out) since he had mentioned had never been inked.

I cleaned up my blueline inks, added a thank you, signed and framed it. I was able to give it to him and he recognized the piece immediately. He was also gracious to sign my inks so I can frame it in my studio.

It was a great moment in my career.
Best of health, George. -







Complaints about long lines and VIP badge abusers at East Coast Comicon 2019

No one seems to have mentioned that they are supposed to punch a hole in the VIP pass once someone went to meet George. We could also see from the line that the VIPs were handing the passes off which prevented the line from moving. At 630, the event staff finally started punching the tags. With 15 minutes left for the signing.


Tommy R writes:

I waited on line yesterday for 4 hours only to be told George had to leave so he could attend his panel at 7 and that I would not have an opportunity to meet & greet George for the last time since I could only attend on Friday.

What really aggravated me was the fact that the limit was 12 items (!) yesterday and these scalpers (many of whom were going to be there all 3 days) took full advantage while all I wanted was just a photo-op with my favorite artist, and my good friend whom accompanied me just wanted to have his New Teen Titans #1 signed by both George Perez and Marv Wolfman (whom could not attend due to an injury). All that time wasted for nothing, attending East Coast Comicon this year was a waste of time for us this year.

The limit should have been 2: if you’re a true fan, just have your favorite comic(s) signed and a photo-op, then move along.

Anything else is excessive they should charge a minimum of $10 for each additional.

Then watch the dealers & scalpers back off.

On the way #home from #eastcoastcomiccon and honestly, what a disappointment compared to last year. Higher prices on everything, #bullshit with dealing with people's handlers and entourage all day. Last straw was missing #georgeperez because his manager was such a #bitch . Yeah there were some bright spots to the day but they were a little few and far between. The entire atmosphere just felt different and it sucked. Did I mention even tickets had cost more this year.

Told 12 items, line cap three times. Never got to me him and was told to come early tomorrow like that sh** matters. Staff was not properly set up. I regret buying my ticket.

VIP badges were abusing the system with some staff not caring. Once a vip holder gets the 12 items signed they pass gets hole punched. That was not the case. The staff and con was not set up properly. I truly feel bad for people that wasted a Friday ticket

Someone just found out George Perez is retired via Comic Shop News in The Comics Journal posted today (05/16/2019)

posted May 17, 2019, 5:52 PM by Vu Nguyen

From tcj.com

Excerpt: By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the great George Pérez’s retirement due to health reasons. Here’s the announcement from Comic Shop News, which, since I am not much of a Twitterer, is where I first heard about it.

It’s impossible to put into words how much enjoyment I’ve gotten out of Pérez’s work throughout my life. I’m not sure I love him enough to binge my way through 200+ issues of Teen Titans, but if I were building a Mount Rushmore of my favorite ‘80s and ‘90s superhero artists, he and John Byrne would be locks. Of course, Pérez was so prolific, there’s plenty of his stuff that I haven’t read, but the sweet spot for me is his ‘80s DC work. His Wonder Woman run remains the definitive version of that iconic character, and Crisis on Infinite Earths and The History of the DC Universe are both sumptuous visual feasts I revisit often.
