JUSTICE LEAGUES: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF ATLANTIS #1 (Mar 2001)
DC Comics

A very nice and unexpected cover of JLA (not the one you think!) by George Perez featuring pretty much all the key Aqua-verse characters (including Aquaman Mera, Lori, Devilfish, Aqualad/Tempest) and Power Girl as a bonus! Well balanced composition with nicely drawn faces. A little jewel in the water!

STAN LEE (Mar 2013)

Because my uncle is not on social media anymore, he asked me to share this publicly on his behalf for the passing of the legendary Stan Lee:

"Sad day. Even though it really wasn’t unexpected, the death of Stan Lee has hit me harder than I thought. He was the first comic book creator I ever saw by face. He inspired me to both read and eventually create comics myself.

He gave my first raise and always took the time at conventions to come over and say hello to me. At one time he said he regarded me as a nephew, to be the smiling face of comics after he was gone.

I lost an uncle today and while I am saddened by the loss I am also oh so grateful for getting to know him and being able to personally thank him for all he did to enhance my youth, to inspire me to dream and to give me the inspiration to achieve those dreams.

RIP Uncle Stan."

-George Perez

R.I.P. Stan Lee

STAN LEE (Mar 2013)
Art by George Pérez at MEGACON 2013
The man who was responsible for basically creating the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee as died at the age of 95.  We knew this was coming, but it's always hard to hear about it.

Below is an excerpt from Compass (Oct 1976). George was already working on several Marvel books, when Stan Lee first took notice of a very young George Perez:

“When I did FF #165, Stan (Lee) saw it, and I received word from Sol Brodsky saying Stan wanted to see me. The jig was up. Stan told me when he first saw it he thought it might’ve been either Buscema or Romita. But he really liked it and asked me what I was doing, as if to make sure I had more work. At the time, told him, I was doing Inhumans, Avengers, Sons of the Tiger, and the FF. So, I think if he had any ideas about giving me another book, it was totally shelled by that.”

Stan Lee calling George to his office about the FF prompts the obvious “How’s it feel to do the Fantastic Four?”

“I was struck with a feeling of awe,” says George, who before his first four-issue stint as FF artist was Rich Buckler’s assistant. Roy Thomas then asked Perez to do the FF for various reasons.

“Even with me handling it now, Kirby’s still considered the definitive artist of Fantastic Four.

“When I look back at my first two issues 164 and 165, I do notice a bit of stilting because I tried to be a little too faithful to Buckler/Kirby because their styles were similar.

“The style I draw Fantastic Four is not much different from the style I would draw Logan’s Run or the two issues of Marvel Spotlight I’m drawing featuring Man­Wolf. But I was awed,” repeats George.

Perez doesn’t feel that Jack Kirby’s plusses lie in his style. “His strength really is not in the way he draws than in how he presents it. As far as an actual artist, he is obviously no da Vinci. Jack is a storyteller, par excellent. He is the epitome of all comic book story telling. Once Jack came back to the fold when he started drawing covers, I got letters saying that Jack doesn’t seem to be able to draw FF any more, that mine became definitive.

“And of course there are the Jack Kirby purists who prefer John Buscema. But I’ve learned to accept that,” Perez said.

Excerpt: This is based on the cover for the Infinity Gauntlet story in the comics, where Thanos possesses the 6 infinity gems and all the heroes of the time try and defeat him.

...

In this cover I wanted to focus on Kira as the main bad guy and keep all other away, as I hadn't had a cover with him (how did that happen?), plus now I have a cover with Shigechi.
