Looks like George is hanging up the pen for health reasons.  But he'll still draw you a sketch at conventions.


GEORGE PEREZ Announces Retirement

"If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?" - Kevin Smith

while I am happy that George has had such a long and storied career and will be forever known as one of the greats in the industry and one of my top 5 all time favorite artists, the only word I have for this news is NOT family friendly.

Anyone that saw the art in his Siren title knew his day in the sun was over long before now. Sure he will always be at the top end of many of our lists for as long as at least I can foresee, but he has just not been able to draw for a very long time. Sad to see retirement forced on him like this, but it was kind of forced on him a long time ago. I guess now it is just official

Sadly, I thought the same thing.   This vision problem is probably what affected his art on Sirens.
