Fanboy Comics Interviews George Perez on ‘Sirens’ (Part 2) The following is the conclusion of Fanboy Comics' interview with George Perez, creator of BOOM! Studios' upcoming series, Sirens.  The first part of the interview may be found here.

The ‘PREVIEWS’ Party Interviews David Petersen of ‘Mouse Guard: Baldwin the Brave and Other Tales’ Hello, listeners!

In the latest episode of The PREVIEWS Party Podcast, we discussed a new hardcover graphic novel from BOOM! Studios' Archaia imprint called Mouse Guard: Baldwin the Brave and Other Tales that collects previous Mouse Guard Free Comic Book Day stories and two completely new stories. We were so excited about this great, new introduction to Mouse Guard that we decided to go straight to the source to learn more. Listen as we discuss the the inspiration for these tales, the artistic process, and the importance of realism in a world of anthropomorphic mice with creator David Petersen.
Fanboy Comics Interviews George Perez on ‘Sirens’ (Part 1) When I was a kid, every Saturday morning, I would dump out the toy bin and pick out my favorite action figures. Gunslingers, samurai, gladiators, soldiers, and astronauts would all be teaming up to fight some great evil I dreamed up that morning, and the sounds of battle would fill my living room. This is my favorite part of George Perez’s new comic book, Sirens. It is a mash up of characters and genres in one epic tale. Perez uses time travel to weave together a story that involves a team of women from all throughout time and space, tackling a single threat. It is one of the coolest action/adventure books I’ve read in a long time. You should definitely pick up a copy at your local comic store this week.

Now, if my glowing review doesn’t convince you, then why don’t we let George Perez himself convince you. Yesterday, BOOM! Studios invited Fanboy Comics and 5 other news outlets to join in on a conference call with Mr. Perez. For an hour, we discussed Sirens and Perez’s inspirations to create the book. One thing became very clear: the comic book veteran is incredibly excited for this book. He was like a kid who just opened up a new toy on his birthday and wants to tell us all about it. So, please read on below for a transcript of the call with questions from all of the fellow journalists who joined on the call.  (Sirens is now available from BOOM! Studios.)
