Review

"Following a legendary two-year run of writing, illustrating, and redefining WONDER WOMAN, George Pérez joined the Superman team of Roger Stern, Jerry Ordway, and Dan Jurgens, bringing that masterful Pérez magic to the Man of Steel. Pérez and Stern soon joined forces on ACTION COMICS for a wonderful eight-issue run, where they closed the first chapter of the mysterious Matrix, introduced the breathtaking power of Maxima, and brought Brainiac to full power in a trilogy that remains one of the true classics of the Superman Saga." -- Rhonda Gillespie

"Pérez came onboard in 1989 -- at the tail end of the EXILE storyline that saw Superman leaving Earth after believing himself to be a threat to the people he protected -- with ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2. Soon after that he was drawing and co-plotting ACTION COMICS and produced some of the most amazing covers the title had ever seen. From his homage to SUPERMAN #1 on ACTION #643 to the black-and-white, George Reeves inspired color scheme on ACTION #644 to the sinister visage of Brainiac on ACTION #647, these covers all stood out on the stands and are worthy of posters in and of themselves. Pérez''s time with the Superman books was brief but noteworthy and it was a shame he didn''t stick around a bit longer." -- Michael Bailey

"DC COMICS PRESENTS #61 was a rarity. It was rare to find a story written by Len Wein ... a miracle that he ever found time to craft the story about Superman and OMAC. "The Once and Future War" was everything I expect in a comic. I expect an almost magical blend of art and story. Nothing is rarer than this and no one can achieve this blend better than George Pérez." -- Adam Burchess

From the Author

George Pérez: "There I was. Cleveland, Ohio, the Superman Expo, June 16, 1988. You know, somehow it all seemed so appropriate. Just a couple of months before, I had agreed to write and draw a new Superman title for editor Mike Carlin. I guess one of the reasons I accepted the project was that I was just so flattered by the request. I suppose that, deep down, every cartoonist yearns to get at least one crack at drawing Superman. Now all Mike had to do was get all us creators in one place to get the ball rolling."

Roger Stern: "Thousands of people were in Cleveland to attend the International Superman Exposition, and we were among them -- we being Mike Carlin, Kerry Gammill, Jerry Ordway, George Pérez, Curt Swan, and Yours Truly. Mike was then the editor of the Superman titles, Jerry was writing and drawing ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, and Kerry and I had just taken over the creative duties on SUPERMAN. George was about to join the team, bringing his distinctive touch to ACTION COMICS. And, of course, Curt Swan was still contributing his own considerable talents to the Superman mythos. We had all come together in the city of his creation, and Mike decided to take advantage of having us all in one place. One evening, we took a break from the Expo, and held what was the first of a series of Super-Summit meetings."

George: "What better place to to chart Superman''s future than the city of his birth? What better time than that Super-Summer, the celebration of his 50th birthday? That fateful night in June was like a dream come true for me ... we were the Super-Team, called in to carry the ball that John Byrne had passed to us. Our mission: to continue the thrill-packed tradition started 50 years ago by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, to start off Superman''s second half-century with a bang."

Roger: "With Mike''s guidance, we started tossing ideas back and forth. George expressed an eagerness to explore Superman''s Kryptonian heritage. And that in turn led to the creation of the Eradicator.  Who would have suspected that a little chunk of crystal and metal would have such a lasting effect on the Superman mythos?"

Jerry Ordway: "Carlin had convinced George to come on board. Doing layouts and story, Pérez needed a finisher capable of adding polish to the work,and that someone was Brett Breeding. Relaunching ACTION COMICS served as a shot in the arm to all of the titles ... and as a result we each reached a bit further, resulting in some exciting explorations of Superman''s Kryptonian heritage."

About the Author

George Pérez started drawing at the age of five and hasn''t stopped since. Born on June 9, 1954, Pérez began his professional comics career as an assistant to Rich Buckler in 1973. After establishing himself as a penciller at Marvel Comics, Pérez came to DC in 1980, bringing his highly detailed art style to such titles as Justice League of America and Firestorm. After co-creating The New Teen Titans in 1980, Pérez and writer Marv Wolfman reunited for the landmark miniseries Crisis On Infinite Earths in 1985. In the aftermath of that universe-smashing event, Pérez revitalized Wonder Woman as the series'' writer and artist, reestablishing her as one of DC''s preeminent characters and bringing in some of the best sales the title has ever experienced. He has since gone on to illustrate celebrated runs on Marvel''s  The Avengers, CrossGen''s Solus, and DC''s The Brave and the Bold.
