Illustrator George Pérez’s World of Comics.

By Efrain Nieves & Victoria Cepeda

Illustrator/Penciller George Pérez is one of those individuals whose name may or may not sound familiar at first but whose work has left an impregnable footprint in most of our minds. His contribution to comics and art illustration is nothing short of remarkable for a kid born in the Bronx back in 1954 to Puerto Rican parents.

For those of us that have ever picked up a comic book  back in the  70s, 80s and 90s have most likely come across Pérez’s work. From DC to Marvel comics, he has drawn and illustrated hundreds of issues. Let us name a few:

Justice League of America, (1980-82, 2006) Avengers – his first prominent assignment ( 1975-80, 1998-200), Crisis on Infinite Earths (1985-86), New Teen Titans(1980-85), Wonder Woman (1987-88, 2010) , Superman ( 1980-83), Batman (1986), Flash (1980-81), Incredible Hulk (1992,1995), White Tiger – comic’s first Puerto Rican superhero  and Marvel’s first superhero of Latino descent.


Thanks to one of our favorite authors, James Hannon, for letting us know about this very talented Bronx native. We are proud of Pérez’s accomplishments and contributions to the world of comics. Certainly his work has inspired many to follow in his footsteps. Pa’lante!
