This image features a hero (whose name shall remain unwritten) as he gets shot by a sports-loving mafia thug (long story!). I love the expression on his face.
While you can’t tell from this drawing, the character’s design was based on an illustration by George Perez in Teen Titans. It showed the priest Brother Blood rising from a pool filled with blood.
While I can’t say I always love George Perez’s art, there are many many instances where he shows himself to be a great storyteller. What don’t I always like about Perez? Well, his uniform/costume designs are often not great. I also feel he sometimes isn’t expressive enough.
But what is George great at? Drawing lots of people. Making great compositions. And most of all? George Perez can draw rocks!
