“Over the last year or so, we all watched as George Pérez closed this chapter of his story with dignity, grace, and love,” said Tim Daniel, Vault’s EVP of Branding & Design. “Doing so came as no surprise to anyone and everyone that had encountered Mr. Pérez, either personally or through his work over the course of his multi-decade career in comics. He left us exactly as we met him, true to himself, with an easy kindness and in the same openly welcoming manner in which he authored his entire story.”
