GEORGE PEREZ’s TOP 13 Comics Series – RANKED

Get ready for 13 days celebrating one of comics’ greatest artists…

George Perez’s artwork first grabbed my attention in 1980 with DC Comics Presents #26 – the issue that gave us a sneak preview of The New Teen Titans.

He’d been around for years before that, but that’s when I was indoctrinated. That series meant the world to me and I was obviously thrilled when Perez and NTT writer Marv Wolfman joined forces for the senses-shattering Crisis on Infinite Earths in 1985.

Naturally, I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

From DC Comics Presents #26. Perez pencils. Dick Giordano inks.

Perez announced his retirement from comics this month and he will be dearly missed. We’ve already celebrated his career by asking comics pros to pick their fave Perez covers. (Click here to check it out. You’ll dig it.)

But I wanted to take things further with a look at Perez’s greatest overall work, so I enlisted 13th Dimension contributor Anthony Durso to engineer the TOP 13 GEORGE PEREZ COUNTDOWN. (I was a DC kid and Anthony has a broader view of Perez’s career.) So, over 13 days, we’ll be unveiling a new entry until we get down to #1.

Oh, and you can bookmark this post, because we’ll be adding links to each installment below.

Dig it.

And thank you, George, for everything.
