13th Dimmension: Why GEORGE PEREZ Never Finished BRAVE AND THE BOLD

posted Jul 14, 2019, 11:01 AM by Vu Nguyen

From 13thdimension.com

THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #9 (Feb 2008)
DC Comics
Excerpt: I’m very, very proud it. I’m very proud of what Mark and I did, but it didn’t really find the audience we wish it had. And I couldn’t finish the first year of it, not because I slowed down but because they came in and said, “We want you to do Legion of 3 Worlds.” Mark, I know, was upset about it because he really wanted me to finish the full first year — and I don’t blame him, that’s what I had contracted for — but it was DC who came in and said, “We want you to do Legion.”

Unfortunately, by the time they were starting to put Legion of 3 Worlds together, they decided, “We’re going to make this part of Final Crisis” — again which I didn’t know — which meant they had to restructure a lot. It took them so long … I could have finished 12 issues of Brave and the Bold. I could have done it.

Book Riot: 26 Of The Best Comic Book Covers Of All Time

WONDER WOMAN #46 (Sep 1990)
DC Comics
26 Of The Best Comic Book Covers Of All Time

Book Riot has talked about the best comic book artists working today and what makes a great cover in general. Now, it’s time to present 26 of the absolute best comic book covers of all time!

Because I am terrible at ranking things, I’ve just put them in chronological order. I’ll start with a few age-old classics that have been referenced and parodied a thousand times, then move on to the modern masterpieces that deserve their own place in comics history.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at some fantastic—and sometimes historic—comic book covers!

Excerpt:

Wonder Woman #46 (1990)

This is not your typical Wonder Woman story (it’s about a teenage girl who loses her friend to suicide), so it needed an atypical cover to go with it. Jill Thompson handily delivers with this piece.

JLA/Avengers #3 (2003)

George Pérez is the undisputed champion of drawing massive crowds of people while still managing to make everyone look distinct. Nowhere is this more evident than his (and Tom Smith’s) covers for the JLA/Avengers crossover event.

George Perez will still honor the 5 head sketches for Terrificon

TERRIFICON 2019 (09-11 Aug 2019)
Mohegan Sun Expo Center, Connecticut
UPDATE: Mr. Perez is still honoring the 5 commission requests ($100 each). Those selected will be able to pick up the artwork at TERRIFICON at his agent: Spencer Beck at The Artists Choice booth.

Details for the commission list is here

>>>
George Perez head sketch commissions for TerrifiCon will go on sale Wednesday, July 10th, 2019 at exactly midnight (Eastern Time Zone) when Wednesday, July 10th, 2019 becomes Thursday, July 11th, 2019 .

To be fair, I will ONLY use the time stamp as given by my email host ( spencerbck@aol.com ) and they have the final word as to when it is received, not I. Any requests that come in before midnight will be disqualified ... even if they come in at 11:59:59 PM ..... 12 MIDNIGHT and not a second earlier. Bear in mind that for Amazing Comic Con - Hawaii, C2E2 and East Coast Comic Convention commission lists sold out in FOUR SECONDS (Yes, at 12:00:04 all commissions were sold out) so make sure to get your order in as quickly as possible at the deadline.
 
Please make sure to include your EXACT request as any emails that come in without the character are disqualified and discarded. All orders must have your first and last name in them as well the exact request. Emails that say "Please put me on the list" do not count and are disqualified. You MUST have all of the requested info in the email. 

Remember, Mr. Perez is doing single character, head shots ONLY and nothing else. One request per person, per name, per household, per family, or per address. You must be present at the show to pick up the artwork in person ... NO PROXIES

Sketch cover or sketch book or jam board requests are NOT accepted. SORRY. Too many potential problems and we do not wish to be responsible for anyone having a bad experience should the item be lost, damaged or destroyed anywhere in the process or shipping thereof. Finally, he is doing only FIVE ( 5 ) commissions total for the show. There will be no on site drawing done.

I hope this is not too blunt, and hopefully, this answers all outstanding questions. We reserve the right to adjust the rules should some unforeseen question come up that has not yet been addressed.
