Here is a fantastic George Perez drawing of Firestorm done back in 1999. In the early 1980s Perez drew Firestorm back-up stories in The Flash, and drew our favorite Nuclear Man in Justice League of America. Even though Firestorm didn’t have his own regular series at the time, Perez drew the character often enough that I consider him the second regular Firestorm artist.
There is a neat story behind this drawing too. A.j. Chwaster, a fellow Firestorm fan and long-time supporter of this site, sent me this scan. As I understand it, one of A.j.’s pieces of art was stolen from an art contest at the 1999 Motor City Comic Con. Then as a favor to the con organizer, George Perez sent this drawing to A.j. as a replacement for the stolen piece. George had no obligation to do this, but was kind enough to oblige.
Wow… Perez is such a great guy, and an amazing artist!
Support Firestorm (and George Perez)! Fan the flame!
