A tour of DC’s past and present…
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. I’m personally most familiar with Perez’s DC output, so I’ve enlisted 13th Dimension contributor Anthony Durso to make the daily picks. (He also made that fancy banner.) Get your arguments ready, folks! — Dan
Pick #9 was Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds. (Click here.) Next up on the countdown:
8. THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD
Mark Waid and George Perez revived DC’s premier team-up title in 2007. Unlike the previous Batman-focused series, the new B&B showcased a variety of characters from the DC pantheon, both modern and classic, such as Green Lantern, Supergirl, Blue Beetle and the Challengers of the Unknown. (And Batman.) Unfortunately, the book didn’t really adhere to the continuity of then-DC and was more a throwback to a simpler time (think a toned-down Zany Haney) that DC editorial and readership didn’t embrace. Perez only lasted for the first 10 issues, Waid another six after that. But during their brief time together on the title it was a fun romp and showed that Perez still had the chops for a monthly, non-event book. — Anthony Durso
