The TOP 13 GEORGE PEREZ Countdown: #9 — THE LEGION

He didn’t draw them much — but he did draw the hell out of them…

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 #10 was The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect. (Click here.) Next up on the countdown:

9. FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF 3 WORLDS

George Perez contributed some covers and costume redesigns for the Legion of Super-Heroes in the early ’80s. Great stuff but not really playing in the LSH sandbox. That changed in 2008 with the five-part series spinning out of Final Crisis, Legion of 3 Worlds. Teamed with Geoff Johns, Perez not only tackled one, two, THREE versions of the Legion, but also ALL of their adversaries, now forming as a ginormous Legion of Super-Villains! The eye candy and Easter eggs alone were enough to make any die-hard Legion fan’s head explode. One thing you have to say about George Perez — he NEVER phones it in. — Anthony Durso
