|Teen Titans TM and © DC Comics|
My name is Alejandro García, but everybody knows me as Alex. I´m originally from Montevideo, Uruguay, but have lived in Spain since 2003. I believe my passion for the Titans and George Pérez arrived the same day, when I read a Titan story for the first time, I think it was with "Assault on Titans Tower" story. I always liked super hero teams, and when I saw this new team, with teenagers (I was only familiar with Robin) it got my attention inmediately. What I liked most was the incredible art, so detailed....the page composition, the fighting sequences and the final moment....they were all great! After that, I wanted to have all the previous issues and the new ones. I remember running to the comic store every month to buy a new issue. It was so exiting read the New Teen Titans. And the stories were becoming more exiting month after month. It was the same with the art: Pérez improved with each issue to the point where we could perfectly distinguish the Titans without their masks. That was so incredible...no too many pencilleres are capable to do something like that these days.
With the Titans I discovered a great artist, all of whose work I follow, regardless of publishers, and I´m always looking to find out what his next work will be.
I´ve always enjoyed drawing and Perez´s art was an inspiration to me. I spent a lot of time scrutinizing his drawings and trying to imitate his style, buy obviously that is impossible. Pérez is always evolving and improving... it is impossible to match!
Ok, this is part of my interview to PACESETTER, THE GEORGE PEREZ MAGAZINE #11, produced and edited by my friend Marcus Mébes.
With this blog I like to share my passion for comics, super-heros and George Pérez, whom I thank for all the inspiration.
