Covering Perez Wonder Woman

To be fair, this article is only going to cover the covers artist George Perez (June 9, 1954 to May 6, 2022) did pre-Crisis...but there were these two!

Wonder Woman #283 (September, 1981) and Wonder Woman #284 (October, 1981) were the two, and, along with featuring Wonder Woman's battles with the Red Dragon, they had the Earth-2 Huntress feature, which had her battle with the Earth-2 Joker and a team up with the grown up Robin!

True, Perez did more Wonder Woman art even before the events of the Crisis On Infinite Earths, such as her appearances in the Justice League Of America, or helping out Donna Troy in the New Teen Titans...

...face it, no one drew teams like George Perez!!!

Perez even drew a piece used on the interior cover of Wonder Woman #300 (presented here in color, from Wonder Woman's second series third issue, later recolored by Tom Smith), as well as featuring her in Crisis On Infinite Earths (featuring a variety of characters).

Of course, George's reboot of Wonder Woman is fondly remembered, and one day will get much more extensive coverage as well.

  1. These covers (and other images) are all, of course, amazing, and a pure tonic to look at, as was all of George's work, but I really want to read those two Red Dragon issues! Hopefully they have them on the DC Universe Infinite app :)
