So this is indeed the new DC Comics logo. It will be introduced in March. I still think it is ugly.

Agreed.
Not an attractive logo.
That first one looks like a Machinists logo.
The second like a new logo for GE or Solyndra.

Those are just terribly crappy logos. I mean, sheesh. Nothing about them screams to me "DC", comic books, superheroes, or some 80 years of defining popular culture.

This took me about 5-10 minutes to make in MS Paint.



I was envisioning something a bit more dynamic with a few more details and touches, but my skills are limited.

Without any shading abilities in Paint, I picture the color inside of the letters to look like they're being filled in by the colorist (you can see the lines I put in their to suggest the letters being hand drawn) and maybe the hole thing but set against a shape of the Superman "S-Shield." The figure is pretty much supposed to represent "generic costumed superhero" and is just a silhouette of Superman I found in a Google Image search.

I kinda like the second one. I don't really like the peel-away D, but the sparks and shit are a nice touch.

Actually, depending on what you wanted to do, there are shading abilities in MS Paint. It can be a pretty powerful tool, if you know how to manipulate it.

The logos don't look all that great. I like their old school logo better.

It's always sad when an amature's peice of art is better than the one released by the professionals. The new DC logo is just to generic IMO.

Looks like the logos were designed with movies, TV and digital comics in mind rather than the static print media. If they're meant to be animated then images won't really give a proper feel for them.

@Trekker: Not bad. Very noir.

The logos were designed with multiple ventures in mind, that doesn't mean that they're going to look any better when slabbed across those things than they do by themselves. I just think these are ugly, aren't iconic at all, and perhaps most importantly are completely unnecessary. The swoosh was fine. At least you could still tell it was a DC icon. These could be the logos to anything frankly.


Peter Tomasai talks about "Batman and Robin" and the road to "The Night of Owls". Despite my criticism of this story line I am looking forward to seeing how all of this unfolds. He has some interesting thoughts about Damian which I agree with, and after a slow start, the book has come into it's own with exploring Bruce and Damian's dynamic.

Those new logos suck. I'd love to be in the meeting where someone said "Yes, this it!"

I picked up The Ray, not part of the New 52, but was interesting nonetheless. It made fun of the stupid ways that superheroes get their powers. It was a fun read.

I also picked up the first issue of All Star Western. That was interesting, Jonah Hex in 1880's Gotham. Kind of cool.

Not DC, but I picked up Dark Matter, by Joe Mallozzi and Paul Mullie from Stargate. The first issue was pretty good, although the advertised conflict was introduced and resolved over two pages. Other than that it was ok.

All-Star Western is a great book.
