2005 Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Absolute Edition cover by George Pérez

This has been a really tricky image for me to find in the past, because search results usually turn up the gigantic Perez/Ross painting for the '90s hardcover instead. This is the master solo, depicting the moment Kid Flash Wally West realized his mentor was (comic book) dead, and he would have to fill Barry Allen's shoes (for a couple of decades.)

Perez had never been high on my favorite artist list, but this proves (as does most of his work) that he is pretty much undeniable.

The first time I heard from someone who disliked Perez, it took me a while to wrap my brain around it. After some consideration, I finally figured out how some folks could have problems with the man. Perez has never quite been one of my absolute top favorites, but I do love his work. Honestly, it's so familiar to me, I think I just take his majesty for granted. I do take exception to some periods (like the excessive photo-referencing of the late '90s,) but I still find pleasure in every one.
