    George Perez - Gorilla Comics Promotional Illustration Original Art Group of 2 (Image, 2000). In 2000, a group of comic professionals including Kurt Busiek, Tom Grummett, Stuart Immonen, Karl Kesel, Barry Kitson, George Perez, Mark Waid, and Mike Wieringo teamed-up to create the imprint of Gorilla Comics to house their creator-owned properties and publish them through Image Comics. The imprint was short-lived, with only a few titles released under the moniker. These two pieces were created for promotion of the imprint and features some of the creator's characters, including Wieringo's Tellos, Busiek and Immonen's Shockrocket, Waid and Kitson's Empire, and Perez' own DiNA Simmons, the main character from his creator-owned title Crimson Plague, being carried by the gorilla! Rendered in ink over graphite on Marvel Bristol board with image sizes ranging from 9.75" x 8.5" to 8" x 9.25". The DiNA/gorilla image is copied and pasted-in the group image. Signed by Perez in the lower right image areas and overall in Excellent condition.
