George Pérez says his doctors estimate he has six months to a year left, and instead of using his remaining time going to Doctor appointments and treatments he has decided to late nature take its course. By doing this he says he can enjoy his remaining time left with his wife, his family, his friends, and his fans.

George Pérez speaks to his fans

There will be some business matters to take care of before I go. I am already arranging with my art agent to refund the money paid for sketches that I can no longer finish. And, since, despite only having one working eye, I can still sign my name, I hope to coordinate one last mass book signing to help make my passing a bit easier. I also hope that I will be able to make one last public appearance wherein I can be photographed with as many of my fans as possible, with the proviso that I get to hug each and every one of them. I just want to be able to say goodbye with smiles as well as tears.

George Pérez is best known for his work on such Marvel titles as Infinity Gauntlet and The Avengers, as well as DC titles The New Teen Titans, Wonder Woman, and so much more. Pérez has always been a fan favorite at conventions, but in 2019 he announced that he was going to retire as he was dealing with many health issues.
