    I've always enjoyed the Pittsburgh ComiCon because the atmosphere of the show is somewhere between a large Con's expansiveness and a smaller Con's relaxed feel. Plus it is one of the few Cons I can actually drive to. I don't understand why we can't get a decent sized Con in Cleveland !

    As usual my son Ashton and I got to the Con about a half hour before the doors open on Friday and the line was already about 50 people deep. There were plenty of good artists to see. Unfortunately Michael Turner could not attend because of help reasons and neither could Michael Kaluta. George Perez was there as always raising money for the Make a Wish foundation. Sal Buscema was one of the headliners and he had a steady line at his table where he was also doing head sketches for the Make a Wish foundation  when I snapped his picture I dropped a dollar in the bucket. J.G. Jones, Scott McDaniel, Ron Frenz, Ron Garney, Mark Texiera, Joe Linsner, David Mack, Angel Medina, Tommy Castillo, Gene Gonzales, Tom Smith, Scott Rosema, Billy Tucci, Casey Jones, and many many (many) others were in attendance.

    This year for Pittsburgh Comicon The wife and I stuck to the panels and events.

    First off Terry Moore is amazingly articulate and I seriously hope he writes a novel, cause people would seriously be amazed by his skill with words. I am not ashamed to say I read SiP and if you don't then you definitely should.

    George Perez and I have the same hairstyle. He talked about New Teen Titans #1 on the baxter paper and why he had a scene with two consenting adults in a bed across from a giant demon trying to eat a deaf guy.

    The comic book legal defense league are a bunch of smart, fun and sucessfull people and I really need to learn to run battletech tournaments in order to help them out next year.

    A Day at the Pittsburgh Comicon
    Saturday, April 23, 2005

    On Friday I made the trek from my small town in Western PA, to the Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville. It's been nearly 12 years since I went to this thing and wasn't sure what to expect. So I conservatively paid the one day entry fee and checked out the place with my cousin.

    Our first stop was with the main man himself, George Perez. It was early and a lot of people were either at work or school so the lines weren't too long. We were able to get to Perez in a few minutes. He was a very nice guy. He signed my Judas Contract TPB and we parted ways.

    Comic book artist George Perez is getting old enough to be a grandfather to a new legion of fans enamored of his work, which features intricately detailed drawings of some of today's biggest superheroes, including Superman, Batman and Captain America.

    Even at the age of 50, with more than 30 years in the comic industry, Perez said he's not ready to rest on his laurels just yet, constantly challenging himself to attract even more new fans.

    "If I can nab them in their first viewing of my work, I can be viable in this industry again," Perez said. "Hopefully, my best work will be ahead of me. I gotta keep going. I can't just be satisfied with what I've done."

    Perez will be one of the headliners at the annual Pittsburgh Comicon, Friday through Sunday at the Pittsburgh ExpoMart at the Monroeville Mall. Others set to attend include Margot Kidder, best known as Lois Lane in several "Superman" movies, and Ernie Hudson, one of the movie "Ghostbusters."

    Though he's been cutting back on convention appearances, Perez said he's always glad to come to the Pittsburgh convention for several reasons. First, he said, it's more of a family atmosphere and concentrates on the comic industry.

    Second, Perez uses his convention appearances to raise money for various charities, including Make-A-Wish, and he said that his Pittsburgh appearances are among the most profitable for that charity. Perez, in a phone interview last week from his Florida home, said he's already lined up about $3,000 in donations, "and I haven't even hit the convention floor."

    News: From George Perez (Feb 2005)

    February 20, 2005 12:00 am
     From George Perez
    I am currently inking the incredible Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on a project written by Phil Jimenez, who is also the cover penciler, with me inking Phil. Unfortunately, beyond that, I'm not at liberty to reveal what the project is so I've been calling it "The EZ Company Project" since all three creators share the same last two letters in our family names. DC Comics should be making an announcement relatively soon and it will be a relief to finally be able to talk about it openly.

    Contrary to solicitations I have indeed drawn the cover for FALLEN ANGELS #20. Due to a mix-up in the scheduling it initially appeared that I couldn't do the cover, so the regular team was told to go ahead and draw the cover. When Peter David found out about that he reminded the editor that the deadlines had been pushed back and even though the book had been solicited with another cover, Peter figured few would be bummed out to find that there was a Perez cover after all.

    I have also drawn a cover for a Marvel Visionaries book spotlighting my 1970's run on FANTASTIC FOUR. Tom Smith colored that piece and, as usual, did a wonderful job.

    I am currently drawing a variant cover for Top Cow's CITY OF HEROES #1 and will be drawing the cover for a CITY OF HEROES novel called "Web of Arachnos". This should be the first of three covers for a series of CoH novels. And since I just mentioned Top Cow, I should also announce that I will be participating in a special 10th Anniversary edition of WITCHBLADE. I will be drawing three pages written by Ron Marz. And as I draw those pages I will be filmed by a video crew for TwoMorrows' DVD companion to its MODERN MASTERS book series.

    There have been other offers, including some covers for Dynamic Forces' RED SONYA and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I also will be providing a cover for DF's STORYTELLER, yet another retrospective on my career. (I am definitely being over-exposed). A cover for ForceWerks' B.A.B.E. FORCE is also on my schedule. There have been other one-shots I've been offered that I'm not yet free to discuss, or yet to accept, but after "The EZ Company Project" I will be primarily focusing my attention on completing GAMES: THE TITANS GRAPHIC NOVEL. Inker Mike Perkins has already started on some pages and Tom Smith has 30 pages ready to start so it's up to me to get busy so that Marv Wolfman can start dialoguing the first half of the book.

    As for conventions this year, here's my schedule for 2005 so far.
    February 25-27: Mega Con in Orlando, FL.
    March 18-20: Wizard World Los Angeles in Long Beach, CA
    April 22-24: Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville, PA (I even provided the T-Shirt art)
    July 14-17: Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA
    September 13-17: Comic Book Festival in Aviles, Spain

    Those are the confirmed shows. There is a possibility of more, but I'm trying to limit my time away from the drawing board this year.
