Black History Month: Dexter Vines

Let’s celebrate Black History Month! Today we’re going to look at one of the most accomplished inkers of the 2000s, Dexter Vines! Based in Atlanta, Dexter is best known as the tag team partner of pencillers Ed McGuinness (Hulk, Superman/Batman) and Steve McNiven (Civil War, Old Man Logan).

What I think is so amazing about Dexter’s work is that he is a bit of a chameleon; changing his style to suit the penciller he is working on. He makes everyone look good. His inks are a good part on why Civil War and Old Man Logan are so different stylistically.

And on top of that, he’s super fan friendly. If you’re ever at a comic book show and Dexter is a guest, make sure you stop by. He is one of the nicest and friendliest creators I’ve had a chance to meet and he always has really cool art to show you!
