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.)
