  • Obrigado por tudo, George Pérez

    George Pérez anunciou em sua conta no Facebook ter câncer nível 3 no Pâncreas, infelizmente incurável. O prognóstico é que ele tenha cerca de 6 meses restantes.

    To all my fans, friends and extended family,

    It’s rather hard to believe that it’s been almost three years since I formally announced my retirement from producing comics due to my failing vision and other infirmities brought on primarily by my diabetes. At the time I was flattered and humbled by the number of tributes and testimonials given me by my fans and peers. The kind words spoken on those occasions were so heartwarming that

    I used to quip that “the only thing missing from those events was me lying in a box.”

    It was amusing at the time, I thought.

    Now, not so much. On November 29th I received confirmation that, after undergoing surgery for a blockage in my liver, I have Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer. It is surgically inoperable and my estimated life expectancy is between 6 months to a year. I have been given the option of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, but after weighing all the variables and assessing just how much of my remaining days would be eaten up by doctor visits, treatments, hospital stays and dealing with the often stressful and frustrating bureaucracy of the medical system, I’ve opted to just let nature take its course and I will enjoy whatever time I have left as fully as possible with my beautiful wife of over 40 years, my family, friends and my fans.
    Since I received my diagnosis and prognosis, those in my inner circle have given me so much love, support and help, both practical and emotional. They’ve given me peace.
    There will be some business matters to take care of before I go. I am already arranging with my art agent to refund the money paid for sketches that I can no longer finish. And, since, despite only having one working eye, I can still sign my name, I hope to coordinate one last mass book signing to help make my passing a bit easier. I also hope that I will be able to make one last public appearance wherein I can be photographed with as many of my fans as possible, with the proviso that I get to hug each and every one of them. I just want to be able to say goodbye with smiles as well as tears.

    I know that many of you will have questions to ask or comments to make, and rather than fueling the fires of speculation and well-meaning but potentially harmful miscommunication, I will be returning to the arena of social media by starting a new Facebook account where fans and friends can communicate with me or my designated rep directly for updates and clarification.

    For media and press inquiries, please use the contact information on the page as well. Please respect the privacy of my wife and family at this time and use the Facebook page rather than reaching out through other channels.

    I may not be able to respond as quickly as I would like since I will be endeavoring to get as much outside pleasure as I can in the time allotted me, but I will do my best. Kind words would also be greatly appreciated. More details to follow once it’s up and running.

    Well, that’s it for now. This is not a message I enjoyed writing, especially during the Holiday Season, but, oddly enough, I’m feeling the Christmas spirit more now than I have in many years. Maybe it’s because it will likely be my last. Or maybe because I am enveloped in the loving arms of so many who love me as much as I love them. It’s quite uplifting to be told that you’ve led a good life, that you’ve brought joy to so many lives and that you’ll be leaving this world a better place because you were part of it. To paraphrase Lou Gehrig: “Some people may think I got a bad break, but today, I feel like the luckiest man on the face of the Earth.”

    Take care of yourselves—and thank you.

    Eu nem sei como começar a expressar o impacto que o trabalho desse homem teve na minha formação como leitor de quadrinhos. Um dos grandes mestres. Que ele possa ter um final de vida o mais pacífico possível.

    Here we are, born to be kings
    We're the princes of the universe
    Here we belong, fighting to survive
    In a world with the darkest powers...

      Que ele tenha um fim de vida tranquilo e sem dor.

          Essa notícia me deixou realmente triste. Vi na página do face dele.

          Pra mim o melhor artista de super-herói de todos.

                Bah. Que noticia triste.
                Torço para que ele passe o resto do seu tempo com qualidade e sem sofrimento.
                A Obra dele sempre será eterna.
                O nome dele já está na história dos quadrinhos.

                  Que merda...
                  Que aproveite bastante enquanto puder com a família e amigos. Profissionalmente nunca deveu nada, já tem seu lugar garantido como lenda.

                    Que ano horrível.Perdemos o Kentarou Miura já e agora o Pérez com essa doença maldita.Mais um mito está nos deixando em breve.Esse mundo me entristece a cada dia que passa.Estou acompanhando Lendas do Universo DC os Novos Titãs.Um talento como poucos.Muito injusto isso.

                    Pode tecer-te a terrível simetria?"

                      Eu n faço ideia do q dizer. Nem sei se ele tem noção de o quanto inspirou e maravilhou as pessoas em sua carreira.

                      Titãs, Liga, Vingadores, Crise, Mulher Maravilha. E Vingadores do Busiek, de longe o run favorito do grupo favorito.

                      E claro, LJA/AVG. Eu podia ter parado ali q tava de bom tamanho.

                      A expectativa é a mãe da merda

                        2022 nem começou e já está sendo um ano muito triste.
                        Em breve...

                          Rapaz, muito triste. É um dos maiores da indústria e um dos poucos que não piorava a medida que o tempo passava. Pelo contrário, só melhorava.

                          Câncer é uma doença maldita...
