George Perez is rightly hailed as one of comics' greatest artists, and for good reason. His ability to make his characters unique in body and facial type and clearly depict action featuring a large cast is amazing. Even beyond that, his attention to detail, particularly in his landscapes and backgrounds in quite impressive. With so many fancy computer programs and coloring techniques available to comics, there is more opportunity for an artist to skimp on backgrounds these days, making me appreciate the effort that Perez has put in over the years all the more.
