George Perez, Who Gave New Life to Wonder Woman, Dies at 67
George Perez, a celebrated comic book artist and writer who gave new life to Wonder Woman in the 1980s and helped create series for DC Comics and Marvel Comics that brought together some of the biggest heroes of the comics world, including The New Teen Titans, died on Friday at his home in Sanford, Fla. He was 67.
The cause was complications of pancreatic cancer, said Constance Katsafanas-Eza, a friend of the family.
Mr. Perez, whose career spanned more than four decades, was known for his richly detailed drawings and his enthusiasm for stories filled with superheroes - the more capes and cowls, the better.
He drew the Avengers, a group that unites many of Marvel's flagship characters, in the 1970s and again in the 1990s.
