My Top 10 Favorite George Perez Covers!

Revered comic book artist George Perez announced his retirement yesterday.  Looking back over his voluminous body of work, I realize how his art was such an inspiration to me growing up as a young creator of fiction.

George Perez illustrated a lot of fantastic comic book covers over the course of his illustrious career.  These were my favorites…

HCrisis_on_Multiple_Earths_Vol_5

#10. Crisis on Multiple Earths, vol. 5

Solemn and foreboding.

Int_071

#9. The New Teen Titans, vol. 1, #71

I love this one because it looks like a hungover Nightwing is left to clean up after a particularly raucous party.

Knttv1_39.jpg

#8. The New Teen Titans, vol. 1, #39

Sure, the abandoned foreground costumes have become a bit of a chestnut, but back then it was shocking and new.  Love the little touch of having some of the pieces hanging off the Titans logo.

Final_Crisis_Legion_of_Three_Worlds_1

#7. Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds, vol. 1

This team-up with Dave McCaig featuring one of comicdom’s most woefully under-appreciated members of a woefully under-appreciated team.

J

#6. The New Teen Titans, vol. 1, #13

Shockingly eerie.

GAvengers_Vol_1_166

#5. Avengers, vol. 1, #166

THE run that first introduced me to the wonder of comic books.

D817028

#4. The New Teen Titans, vol. 1, #36

For a series that centered on teenagers, Titans could get incredibly dark – and this cover does a great job of reflecting the title’s more adult tone.

B007_Custom

#3. The Infinity Gauntlet #1

Thanos has never looked so formidable.

topfiveperezcovers4

#2. The Korvac Saga

When ten year old me first read this arc, it blew my mind.

A003_Custom_6

#1. Crisis on Infinite Earths, vol. 1, #7

Boy, no comic book cover has ever equaled the emotional impact of seeing a weeping Superman holding a lifeless Supergirl in his arms.

Hey, George, thanks for the memories!
