Art Institute of Zwen: George Perez

If you have read comics for any length of time, you know who George Perez is. He has worked at both Marvel and DC, and while there he probably has drawn *every* single character either company has ever published!

So of course he has also drawn the Legion of Super-Heroes. When he moved from Marvel to DC one of the first things he did was draw covers for books he was not working on. This included Legion of Super-Heroes #s 268, 277, 278, 279, 280, and 281. And of course, he drew the Legion as guest-stars in the recent Brave And The Bold series, and also some minor mini-series called Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds. If you have never read this series, you should. You can find the trade paperback on-sale here.

Before he even moved to DC, in 1977, Omnibus Publishers put out a collection of original sketches in a book called Perez: Accent On the First "E." In that portfolio was THIS gem:

Dare I say it....these women are HOT! Bravo, George Perez, you have *always* had IT!

If you are lucky to find George at a comic convention he will sell you an autographed print, or possibly draw you a requested sketch for $100. Or you can find original George Perez art for sale at The Artist's Choice.
