George Perez Formally Retires From Comics

Sad news about George Perez officially retiring from comics. Many don’t realize that George’s very first work for DC Comics was on the Firestorm back-ups strips in THE FLASH!

Below is George Perez’s very first page for DC Comics! The splash page for the Firestorm back-up story in The Flash #289! Click to enlarge!

Another beloved George Perez Firestorm image is from the 1984 Justice League of America postcard set.

Personally, I’ve always loved the cover to Justice League of America #205 featuring Professor Stein battling Hector Hammond!

Finally, here are two quick convention head sketches George did for me a few years back at DragonCon.

What a fantastic artist and wonderfully warm human being! We were lucky to have his work on Firestorm!!

Support Firestorm (and George Perez)! Fan the flame!
