Legendary Artist and Writer George Perez has died.


Recommended Posts

Yesterday George Perez, the Legendary Writer and Artist for both Marvel and DC passed away on Free Comic Book Day. George had revealed he had been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer last year and knew his time was coming to an end, but it doesn't make this news any easier to process. Best known for his work on New Teen Titans, Avengers and Wonder Woman, he will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace, George.

This is heartbreaking. George Perez was an amazing artist who could tell a story only with his drawings. He is easily top 3 artist for the Avengers. 

His work on the Avengers/ JLA crossover is legendary. I’m crushed that  us fans will never get to see him draw our favorite characters again.

RIP George Perez

George Perez's work on the Avengers ranked right up there with masters like Neal Adams and John Buscema. In no time, he became synonymous with the Avengers. He became The super team artist for the comics world- Fantastic Four, Crisis, and of course, probably the most "Marvel" of DC properties, the Teen Titan. Along with Marv Wolfman he took a stale and boring bland idea that had failed multiple times, and put it right up there with the X-Men. Titans was probably the series where his artwork really began to mature; he would dramatically distinguish different body builds based on the characters' powers and personas.

His work on the Justice League, Superman, and Wonder Woman restored those titles to their most popular ratings. And who but George Perez could do something fanboys could only have wet dreams about- drawing the historic Marvel/DC Avengers vs. Justice League. 

There's a lot of talk about nostalgia when we think of Marvel Legends. George Perez is My nostalgia. When I think of the Avengers, that's who I think about.
