Vibe sans Vixen double up…August 30, 2007
I guess September is the month for doubles even for those magazines who are on their final breath. Vibe and its soon-to-die sister Vibe Vixen opted for split covers on both magazines. Vibe made history with its first non-music cover and Vibe Vixen made history by becoming history itself. The split covers of Barack Obama offered the gutsy cover, Obama on his own and the not-so-gutsy Obama who needs “40 more who will change the world.” The Barack only cover wins my vote hands down. As for the recently shuttered Vibe Vixen, well pick your choice of either cover. I have no opinion on either. But, what the heck, it is their last issue, so it must be a collector’s item. Buy both for safe keeping… one day the two copies and five dollars will buy a good cup of coffee.
