The printed story is actually 16 pages long, with only 1 or 2 of the Legionnaires shown on each of the (digest sized) pages. But all of the art was done on these three pages - enjoy!

Remembering CrossGen's The War

THE WAR: CALL TO ARMS POSTER (24x36) (Sep 2003)
CrossGen Comics
THE WAR: CALL TO ARMS POSTER (11x17) (Sep 2003)
CrossGen Comics
Before CrossGen Comics went bankrupted, they teased a CrossGen CrossOver event called "The War".

George Perez was going to be the superstar artist for the event, but couldn't commit to it because he was still working on the much-delayed JLA/Avengers books. Those who waited the first time might remember that issue #4 was nine months behind (originally going to ship June 2003, but did not deliver until March 2004).

CrossGen Comics, which was probably burning through money every month, couldn't wait for George, so they went ahead with The War (now renamed as "Negaton War") with different artists in April 2004.

The only War-related item that George produced was this "Call To Arms" Poster. It was available in a smaller 11x17 and larger 24x36 print (the larger print was limited to 1,000 prints and signed by George Perez with a Certificate of Authenticity). They were sold at $10 and $30, respectively. The poster was inked by Rick Magyar with colors by Mike Atiyeh.

Personally speaking, I wish it wasn't in silhouette, but in the typical details that we've come to expect of George Perez's work. I haven't checked the timeline, but this was the probably the last thing George produced for CrossGen.

NEW TEEN TITANS #38 (Jan 1984)
DC Comics
Excerpt:

What's your single favorite DC issue of all-time?


This one was easy for me because my favorite single issue of DC Comics is "Who is Donna Troy?" which is a New Teen Titans issue by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. I love the whole run but that that one issue is fantastic because you really see Dick as a detective. That's one of the reasons why I love it, because it's a Dick Grayson story. It's not a Robin story, it's not a Nightwing story, it's from when as a character he was kind of in between phases. I love it because, in some ways, the stakes are small. He's not chasing down a villain with a bomb that could level of city or, you know, Darkseid or anything like that. But in other ways, the stakes cannot be bigger because he's trying to find the identity of one of his best friends. In this world, anybody's identity means so much to them, but Donna Troy has so little to go on. And he's not doing it because the clock is ticking, he's just doing it because he knows how much it would mean to his friend and he feels like he can do that. I love that issue so much, and when I did my brief Nightwing run I got to do an issue with Phil Jimenez, who's a great artist, great guy, and also a Wolfman-Perez New Teen Titans mega fan! We got to work together on one issue and I said I wanted to do an homage, but we couldn't do it justice if it was just a straight copy job. So I wanted to do a twist on it in the context of the untouchable story arc, and he was so down. So instead of "Who is Donna Troy?" we (and we never called it this officially) did "Uncovering the Identity of the New Villain, the Judge"! We got to show Dick at Hudson University and most of it is told in flashbacks, but he's not in costume and he's just being the detective, and that's just a great thing to have in a Nightwing story.

Vu: Personally speaking, I did not love the giant "Final Fight!" smacked in the middle of the cover.
Also: Did you notice they cropped off George Perez's signature?


George Perez will have art prints for sale at conventions

Mark C asks:


EAST COAST COMICON 2019 (17-19 May 2019)
Meadowlands, New Jersey
Does George sell prints of his artwork when attending conventions? I'm eyeing the Niagara Falls show and would be very interested in getting an Infinity Gauntlet #1 cover print signed if possible.

Answer: Based on this photo from ECC, it appears that George Perez will have large prints of his artwork available for purchase. I do not know if Infinity Gauntlet #1 is among one of the prints, but NTT#1 (Baxter) and JLA/Avengers #3 for sure.

Update: Jason V said: Infinity Gauntlet #1 WASN'T there at East Coast Comicon. Price was 3 for $30 or $20 each.

INFINITY GAUNTLET #1 (Jul 1991)
Marvel Comics

On May 21, 1991, the Mad Titan upended existence with a single click of his fingers, killing 50% of life, and leaving the Super Heroes of the Marvel universe with the greatest fight in history ahead of them. Led by the resurrected Adam Warlock and aided by primal cosmic forces, Earth's protectors entered cosmic warfare in a six-issue event written by Jim Starlin and featuring the art of George Perez and Ron Lim. And 28 years later, the reverberations of this one action are still echoing across the world!
