    Vibe sketch by George Perez

    posted Dec 29, 2016, 12:02 AM by Vu Nguyen


    VIBE (2005)
    art by George Pérez 
    from hobkirk2001
    Here is a rarely seen Vibe sketch by George Perez... George admitted he never liked the character.

    In the interview from COMICS JOURNAL #100 (Jul 1985), George said:

    Perez: ... I’d like the JLA, I haven’t drawn Vibe yet, I have a certain bigotry towards Vibe, but eventually I’ll have to draw him.

    Heidi MacDonald: (giggles) Not exactly your favorite character, eh?

    Pérez: Oh, I sincerely say he’s the one character who turned me off the JLA. If nothing else, every character that was introduced was an ethnic stereotype. I couldn’t believe it. I said, “Come on now!” These characters required no thinking at all to write. And being Puerto Rican myself, I found the fact that they could use a Puerto Rican character quite obviously favorable since the one Puerto Rican characters in comic that existed, the White Tiger, is no longer a viable character. But having him be a break dancer! I mean, come on now. It’s like if there were only one black character in all of comics, are you going to make him…

    MacDonald: A tap dancer.

    Pérez: A tap dancer, a shoeshine boy? Particularly when you’re picking a stereotype that’s also a fad. You’re taking a chance that this guy is going to become very passe, his costume becomes passe because it’s a breakdance costume, the minute the fad fades.
