Perez Hulks out…
Comics great George Perez announced his retirement this month (click here) and we’re celebrating his illustrious career across 13 days with the TOP 13 GEORGE PEREZ COUNTDOWN — ranking his best work going back to his professional beginnings in the 1970s.

Get your arguments ready, folks! — Dan
Pick #11 was Firestorm. (Click here.) Next up on the countdown:
10. THE INCREDIBLE HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT
