George Pérez – Born in the South Bronx, New York, on June 9, 1954, George started his comics career over 38 years ago, and he’s still going strong, earning his place as one of the most influential and popular artists in the industry. He has been involved in many landmark publications throughout his almost four decade career. With writer Marv Wolfman, George created THE NEW TEEN TITANS, which helped bring DC Comics back into competitive prominence during the 1980’s and was the basis for the popular animated series. Wolfman and Pérez struck gold again when they redefined the entire DC Universe in their hugely successful CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS and its follow-up HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE. An acknowledged master at drawing team books George Pérez has had two enormously successful runs, almost two decades apart, on THE AVENGERS and has drawn such popular team books as FANTASTIC FOUR,, THE INHUMANS, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, X-MEN, ULTRAFORCE, I-BOTS and MARVEL-TWO-IN-ONE. He had great personal success with the solo-feature WONDER WOMAN, which he also scripted, re-establishing the Amazing Amazon as one of DC Comics’ upper-tier characters. George’s storytelling talents can also be found in titles as varied and diverse as SILVER SURFER, SUPERMAN, HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT, THE BEATLES STORY, CROSSGEN CHRONICLES, SACHS & VIOLENS and the comics’ adaptations of LOGAN’S RUN and JURASSIC PARK. George’s success with the chart-topping intercompany crossover JLA/AVENGERS was followed by memorable stints on THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD and FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF 3 WORLDS and DCU: LEGACIES. Last year saw the long-awaited release of the graphic novel THE NEW TEEN TITANS: GAMES, re-teaming George with Marv Wolfman to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the debut of the Titans team. Not content to simply relive past glories, that same year George took on the plumb assignment of scripting the newly re-booted SUPERMAN, thus confirming his relevance and continued significance to a new generation of comic’s readers. His most recent work as co-penciller (along with Kevin Maguire) on writer Paul Levitz’s WORLDS’ FINEST, featuring the newest versions of Power Girl and The Huntress, further galvanizes that affirmation.
