George Perez Accepts Eisner Award At Surprise Party

Legendary comic creator George Perez was inducted in to the Eisner Awards Hall of Fame this year, but was unable to attend the ceremony to accept the award. Perez is known for his work on the industry changing Crisis on Infinite Earths, his remolding of Wonder Woman, his time with Marv Wolfman on the Teen Titans and an amazing run on the Avengers. He is also one of the nicest guys in the industry. Some of his friends and fans put together a surprise party for him where he was presented with the Eisner Award.
