“Cyberfrog” variant covers of “Vampirella Vs. Re-Animator” are printing money
Over the weekend, comic book creator Ethan Van Sciver (Green Lantern) launched a unique crowdfunding campaign for a variant cover edition of Vampirella Vs. Re-Animator #1 featuring EVS’s own Cyberfrog and Salamandroid characters. The campaign has already producing quite a bit of green for Van Sciver, having raised well more than one thousand percent of its original goal for a total of roughly $27 thousand at the time of this writing.
Here’s how EVS pitches these Cyberfrog variants on the Indiegogo campaign page.
This is the first of many cool limited edition CYBERFROG products that I’d like to offer you!
THESE ARE HIGHLY LIMITED COLLECTIBLES.
You will receive a copy of the 20 page DYNAMITE COMICS VAMPIRELLA vs. RE-ANIMATOR #1, written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Blacky Shepherd, with an EXCLUSIVE NEW COVER by ME:
Ethan Van Sciver.
There are two versions of the cover featuring colors by Kyle Ritter (one with a title and logos and another art-only version), each priced at $20. A black and white edition will run you $30 if got prefer to have a copy featuring only the line art, and there are also options to buy signed or unsigned options if you want all three versions.
Now that this campaign is successful, he intends to follow up with Cyberfrog variants for the remaining issues of the 4-part miniseries.
This is an interesting way for fans of Van Sciver’s work to discover a series that they may have missed, but what is that series all about, anyway? Originally released by Dynamite Comics in late 2018/early 2019, the Vampirella Vs. Re-Animator miniseries was a macabre crossover featuring the work of writer Cullen Bunn and co-writer/artist Blacky Shepherd. It’s important to note that Cyberfrog and Salamandroid will not appear in the pages of the story; these editions will only have new covers featuring EVS’s characters alongside the title characters of Vampirella and the Re-Animator.
