voted #3 on Comic Book Resources list of All-time Top 50 Artists is;George Perez
George Perez first broke into comics in the early '70s, drawing backups for Marvel's magazine line. Soon, Perez was gaining enough attention that he was given one of Marvel's bigger titles, "The Avengers." Perez was a hit on the book, and for most of the '70s, Perez kept busy on a number of assignments for Marvel, including a run on "Fantastic Four" with Marv Wolfman.
Towards the beginning of the '80s, Perez was already doing work for DC Comics, drawing "Justice League of America." When his old "Fantastic Four" partner, Wolfman, made the move to DC, Perez and Wolfman got together to launch the "New Teen Titans."
The book was a smash hit, both critically and commercially, and Perez and Wolfman were instant comic book stars.
"Titans" was the perfect mixture of Perez' strengths - clean, but still dynamic and just a little ornate. In addition, Perez had soon gained a reputation as being one of the best artists out there for drawing large groups of heroes (note the team books he worked on - "Avengers," "Justice League," "Titans" - he loved the group shots).
On "Titans," Perez honed his skills, becoming more and more detailed.
His ability to draw large groups was put to the test when, in 1985, he joined Wolfman on "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the massive DC crossover that changed the DC Universe forever and remains a favorite amongst comic readers. It also gave Perez the chance to draw lots and lots and lots of characters.
After "Crisis," Perez went solo (while working with Len Wein at first) and relaunched "Wonder Woman" for DC.
After staying on the book a number of years, in the '90s, Perez ceased regular work, instead working on mini-series and special projects.
He still managed to produce some highly acclaimed work, like "Hulk: Future Imperfect," with writer Peter David.
In the late '90s, Perez took up regular comic work again, relaunching the "Avengers" with writer Kurt Busiek. The book was a smash hit.
Perez then signed an exclusivity deal with CrossGen, but in the meantime, he began work on "JLA/Avengers," a prestige edition crossover of the Marvel and DC characters that Perez had initially worked on in the '80s, before a disagreement between the two companies quashed the deal. Now, two decades later, Perez finally had the chance to finish it.
And, of course, draw a cover featuring every single member of the Justice League and the Avengers.
Perez also contributed covers (and some interior pages) to "Infinite Crisis," the sequel to the original crossover Perez had worked on in the mid-'80s.
Recently, it was announced that Perez will be working on a new team-up series for DC with writer Mark Waid titled "Brave and the Bold."
