Artist Art Thibert has joined forces with Dynamite Comics to offer fans an exclusive crossover variant for Vampirella #1, only available on Indiegogo. The limited-time cover celebrates the 25th anniversary of Thibert’s independent creation Black & White and Vampi’s 50th.
Fans and collectors can find a few options on the Indiegogo campaign. Both the standard dressed cover and logo-free “virgin” editions are set at the same price, while a black and white inks-only version displays Thibert’s famous abilities. Bundles for all three as well as all three signed are available. There are also limited one-of-a-kind sketches of either Black & White or Vampirella.
Thibert has been a professional comic book artist for more than 35 years, initially as one of the greatest inkers of all time for legends such as Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, Art Adams, Steve Ditko, Joe Quesada, Adam Kubert, David Finch, Rob Liefeld, Dan Jurgens, Whilce Portacio, Ron Lim, Curt Swan, Salvador Larroca, Mark Bagley and countless more. He has also extended his talent to writing and penciling.
In 1991 he was the ongoing inker for the X-Men series at its peak popularity. After Lee and Liefeld’s exit to form Image Comics, Thibert became one of the hottest talents, stepping in as penciler of X-Men and launching the ongoing Cable series.
Originally published by Image in 1994, Black & White were serialized across multiple titles before receiving their own series. In 2018, Thibert relaunched the characters for a remastered and expanded hardcover graphic novel, successfully crowdfunded through Indiegogo.
His special cover for Vampirella #1 offers fans of the best-selling Christopher Priest and Ergün Gündüz book another special collectible.
