Georges’ first regular ongoing monthly comic book was Bishop: The Last X-Man published by Marvel Comics, followed by Gambit, Deadpool, and Weapon X. In 2006, Wildstorm (DC) Comics paired Georges with Hollywood screenwriter John Ridley, for The American Way, a controversial comic book mini-series set in the turbulent 1960’s.<br> <br> Soon after, Georges was hand-picked by Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s creator Joss Whedon, to be the regular artist of the highly anticipated Buffy “Seasons Eight and Nine” – the comic book continuation of the popular Fox Television series.
