George Perez has retired from making comics and I thought that was worthy of a post. I was fortunate to meet him a few times, including the two times he gave "How to Break into Comics" programs aimed at teens at the library where I was the young adult specialist. They were the most popular programs I ever held and he was as gracious and friendly as one could hope, patiently looking at and evaluating the art the attendees brought with them.
So, enjoy your retirement, George. You've more than earned it.
Also, I'm behind on reading, behind on reviewing, not sure when I'll catch up with either. And I still wonder how many folks actually read this blog and/or care.
