The comics master dug deep into his TOP 13 comics projects…
UPDATED 5/7/22: The great George Perez has died at the age of 67 — devastating news for one of comics’ most beloved creators. In 2019, we published THE GEORGE PEREZ INTERVIEWS, in which the artist told entertaining and enlightening stories about 13 of his most enduring works — from New Teen Titans to Avengers to Crisis and so much more. We re-present them here. Click here for our complete index of Perez features. — Dan
Back in January, artist George Perez announced his retirement from comics. Given his enormous popularity and impact, the response from fans and creators alike was predictably potent.
In the aftermath, we launched THE TOP 13 GEORGE PEREZ COUNTDOWN, a daily look at Perez’s greatest series. It was written by 13th Dimension contributor Anthony Durso and proved — unsurprisingly — quite popular. (Click here. You’ll be glad you did.)
Fast-forward a few months and I was able to sit down with Perez for a one-on-one panel at East Coast Comicon, one of the few stops on his convention farewell tour. In front of a crowded room, we went through every project in the TOP 13, from 13 to 1.
The result? THE GEORGE PEREZ INTERVIEWS, which we’re running here across 13 weeks, starting on Perez’s 65th birthday June 9.
