This new ballclub has the right idea - traditional AND modern.

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

Hmm.



I suppose you could be right.

Off-topic: Is Donna's costume a hand-me-down from Star Boy? :lol:

On-topic: I still prefer the plain ol' DC-in-a-circle logo, circa 1973...


It really goes good with the 20c price, too!

I remember really disliking the DC "stars" logo when it was introduced in the 70s ("The DC Line of Super-Stars!").  Even in an age of bell-bottoms and sideburns it seemed cheesy and lame.

Over time I got used to it but never did love it.  That said, the new one's not much better.

I think the era I liked best was early Bronze Age, when they had no logo at all, just a tiny little "DC" they worked into logos for the individual books.  Like this:



Back then I bought comics based on quality, not brand loyalty.  These days I suppose they have to put a logo on the books because otherwise the offerings of DC and Marvel are nearly identical.  In fact, I could use a few more helpful symbols.  For example, the way most of these guys draw, it would be useful to have a big arrow that says, "This is a picture of Superman."

All in all, I don't dislike the logo. The only thing I'd change is I'd place the star at the top rather than the bottom.

Oh I don't know, I think it kind of fits:

"DC...we've got one star left, and we've just about run him into the ground, too!"

Sadly, all too true.

They might be making a turn around with Green Lantern: Rebirth; but with the Countdown to Infinite Crisis, I tend to doubt it

I, personally, can accept change and I've enjoyed every DC logo. Until now, that is.

I just don't like it. Why? No particular reason, I just don't. Still, I can learn to live with it.
