"Running late, again, but anyway... There will be at least as many collections and remembrance albums for George Perez in the future as there was published during his lifetime. Below is one of the latter, courtesy of Google, and I have tried several…"

"While I don't know whether or not George Perez got to draw everybody that existed within his lifetime, he definitely could draw anybody well. Even this guy, courtesy of the Grand Comics Database."

"Been a VERY long day and I barely got here in time, but while not part of her own series, one good George Perez Wonder Woman illustration deserves another... (Image courtesy of the Grand Comics Database.)"

"The way I heard it, History was originally supposed to be the last two issues of the original Crisis on Infinite Earths but the story ran long (big surprise) so the sequence got spun off to a separate Epilogue mini-series. I had no problem with the…"

"George Perez did the art for the original DC comics when they were giveaways within selected Atari Games, so it was only natural that he'd come back to do covers for the new comic book years later. Although the title went issues 0-5, he…"

"Another simplistic yet detailed George Perez cover. Note the individual chain/mail links plus stone patterning, let alone how well Perez could draw the female form. (Image courtesy of the Grand Comics Database.)"
