Covering Perez X-Men
The only two covers George did during the regular run were of X-Men #112 (August, 1978), inked by Bob Layton, and X-Men #128 (December, 1979), inked by Terry Austin.
Still, two pretty good ones!Of course, Marvel did adapt one of George's portfolio pieces for the cover of Age Of X-Man Alpha (March, 2019), as an incentive variant (the original sketch was based on Marvel Team-Up Annual #1....).
While it was Frank Miller and Terry Austin who did the cover of X-Men Annual #3 (August, 1979), there is some of the all too rare Perez X-Men interior art (covered by Between the Pages blog, here!).

Happy Birthday Zatanna And Gardner Fox
That little bit of magic says what better time to look back at the saga that introduced Zatanna...the search for Zatara, her father!
Hawkman and Detective Comics
Atom and Green Lantern
Detective Comics and Justice League Of America
back ups from Adventure Comics, Lois Lane, Supergirl and the Zatanna Special....it would be magic!

Image's Big Bang Comics
Well, enter...Big Bang Comics!
Big Bang Comics was a fun little exercise in "new nostalgia", giving readers old style comics with new characters...

Holy Friday The 13th Batman!
Quite an unlucky time for the clown prince of crime, by walking under a ladder, breaking a mirror and crossing the path of a black cat!

Covering Perez Flash
Starting with Flash #293 (January, 1981) where George even drew half the issue (teaming up with Firestorm to face the Atomic Skull), as it was his only Flash cover, and adding the iconic image from Crisis On Infinite Earths #8....well, just because!
Well, that was George's only pre-Crisis Flash cover, as he covered Flash (Wally, instead of Barry) for a few issues early in his run.
Flash #15 and #16
Flash #17 and Annual #2 (inked over Mike Collins' pencils)
Flash was also featured on covers of the Justice League of America and New Teen Titans as well....Logan's Run, Green Lantern, Justice League of America, New Teen Titans, some on his birthday, and more to come, to keep George's legacy alive.
