Time to make a joke about how that logo is set up.

Oh morning star, how your light has fallen.  :lol:

Since the star of that logo is at the bottom of the its arc, the proper translation of that Bible quote seems appropriate.

It looks like a freeze frame from an animated logo.  The star will spiral around the DC.  Great logo for movies and cartoons

Specifically, it looks to me like the old Hanna-Barbera logo (the "swirling star" version from the 70's and 80's).

Still didn't see what was wrong with the "DC Bullet"... I liked that one...

How does this design rank up against the old "bullet"?

I'll give this new logo one out of four stars...   :wink:

The logo and that cover just reminds me of Disco Music, and no that is not a good thing.

As usual, Tom Spurgeon has the best quote:
"It does sort of look like a pro Ultimate Frisbee team logo, I have to admit: "The DC Whammos.""

Myself, I still miss the old silver age one.



Mark Evanier
compares them.

Can't decide if the Wonder Girl costume looks more like Dazzler or Ms Mystic?
