For 30 years I've been a fan, and today I met George Perez at the Calgary Expo.

He sketched Batman for me (and my son) and was super nice.

The Expo made news first for being the reunion spot for the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and then further made news for being shut down yesterday by the Fire Marshal for overcrowding.

The other highlight for me was Kate Beaton drawing a picture of my son.

Your son doesn't seem as excited as you are! Very cool.

This is awesome. What a legend Perez is. Always admired his work and his rendition of the DC Universe over the years is one of the reasons I love DC Comics.

Of course, I also loved his work on Marvel. Actually, I can relate this a bit to a story of one of my meetings with a star comic book creator that's the exact opposite of this.

In the late 90s I was friends with a few of the editors at Marvel (most of whom were involved with the Spidey Clone Saga and you know what happened to them). I was at a party with a lot of Marvel and comic book pros and of course we talked comics. The Kurt Busiek/George Perez Avengers #1 had just come out and we were all talking about it. I was asked what I thought of it and in my youthful arrogance and full-of-my-selfedness I said I didn't really like it. Because it was over stuffed with Avengers just to say "look at all of the Avengers in it!" and I likened it (negatively) to an episode of WCW Monday Nitro.

I wasn't done. Then somehow I started talking about Justice League International-post Breakdowns and how I hated what Dan Jurgens did with the JLI after Giffen and DeMatteis left and oh, Dan Jurgens sucks, I hate Dan Jurgens.

Hey, guess who was standing in earshot? Dan Jurgens. Oh hi, Dan Jurgens! Pleasure to meet you. I am an ass.

P.S. I'm still not a fan of Dan Jurgens.

Looking over the list per month, for me, the pull list (WTF? I have a pull list?!) until further notice will be: Action Comics Animal Man Swamp Thing Batgirl (iffy) Batman and Robin Frankenstein (iffy) Demon Knights (iffy)
