George Perez's Sirens #1 (of 6)

   Artist and writer George Perez doesn't do enough work these days to suit me (and I realize he's had some health problems in recent years which have limited his availability), so it's great to see him tackling his own concepts.

   In Sirens he tackles a subject that's right in his wheelhouse, as a team of beautiful and powerful woman team up... for some reason or another.

   It's an issue that's jam-packed with amazing art and an impressive amount of text and dialogue - you definitely get your money's worth with this series.

   It's the fanciful tale of a team of women from across different time periods, strange worlds and alternate realities (some science fiction, some fantasy).

   The first issue is sort of like taking a sip of water from a fire hose - it's a bit overwhelming at first.

   But Perez's enthusiasm is contagious, and the issue is a heck of a lot of fun.

   The art is terrific - he hasn't lost a step in his ability to fit in an amazing amount of detail and design in each panel. Add that to a fun story, and I'm happy to recommend this series.

Grade: A-
