Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join hosts Andrew Young and Sammy Younan as they get down and dirty in the four-colour world of comic books, focusing on classic stories, new issues, comic creators and hot button topics.
This week, in our creator spotlight, we take a look at the works of George Perez. When it comes to mainstream comics, there are few who have drawn as many different Marvel and DC heroes as George Perez. His skillful hands were behind some of the greatest comics of all time including: The Korvac Saga, The Judas Contract, Crisis on Infinite Earths, Future Imperfect, Ultron Unlimited and many more. A master of detail, he’s created such elaborate splash pages that beg the reader to comb over them several times to take in everything. That man can sure pack a panel with a lot of great stuff.
Join Andrew and Sammy as they look back on the amazing body of work that George Perez has produced. We look at his work as an artist as well as a writer. We also look at his current place in the world of comics and some of the set backs he’s faced. Of course, we name check some of our personal favourites that he’s done. Put on your favourite Hawaiian shirt and settle in as we talk about one of the greatest creators ever to draw for the House of Ideas and the Distinguished Competition.
