    Default Your favorite DC Logo



    Mine is the DC Spin. First one that I saw when I was introduced to DC (Well maybe not so much introduced, but when I started paying more attention to the company) so its the one I think of when I think DC.

    My favorites: the blue bullet, the red National Comics and the spin. Current one is awful -- if I didn't already know it was the DC logo, I'd have no idea what it is supposed to be.

    I like the simple, red 'DC' inside the circle. A little tweaking and that could be a great, modern logo. Stark (but iconic) simplicity is where it's at.

    It's weird, but the current logo somehow is both simple and needlessly busy at the same time. I guess it's because you have what should be simple forms interrupted by that realistic fold with the 3-dimensional shading. Maybe get rid of the fold, move the 'D' a bit to the left and have the top and bottom edges of the 'C' emerge from behind the 'D' instead of being uncovered by a peeling sticker.

    Regardless of the product, this ^ is the more memorable, "catchy" overall better executed logo.

    Who ever was in charge of DC's branding/marketing is an idiot letting it through to another company.
    What's ridiculous is it even has the reworking of star theme, which might be why DC finally dropped it in their "new" one.

    And with slight shading it even conveys a comic book betterthan that new bandaid/peeling sticker one.

    The blue bullet. But the current one isn't bad, either. Much better than the generic previous version, anyway.

    The classic DC Bullet all the way

    For nostalgia reasons and in no particular order, my 4 favourites are: the DC Line of * Super Stars * bullet, the DC/National Comics/Superman bullet, the 4 stars DC bullet and the simple DC whatever with a pic of the feature inside the comic.

    The DC/National Comics/Superman bullet was what was on the comics when I first started buying. Mind you the Go-Go checks were also on those comics and to me the Go-Go checks are as much an emblem of DC as anything else they've used. The thing about DC/National Comics/Superman is that it was very confusing. It seemed like the company couldn't decide what it was and it gave you a multiple choice. If you looked inside on the indicia you got a fourth option: National Periodical Publlications. So what was it? The Go-Go checks were a much easier way to identify these comics and you could always see them in a spinner rack.

    I liked when they had an image of the hero or heroes or sometimes a representative image (like a gothic bat for the mystery titles) in the upper left hand corner. I was always interested to see which image they would use for which comic.

    The Line of * Super Stars * was a catchy slogan. The 4 stars Milton Glaser bullet was simply an evolution from that--I don't know why they had to pay a designer so much to come up with that, since it is a mere tweaking of what they already had. With all the expert letterers and designers in their employ, why go outside the company for a logo design? You would think Joe Letterese, John Workman or John Costanza could have done something like that in an afternoon.

    Current one is convoluted and ineffective.

    The yellow and red, and the red, white, blue are the best.

    I like the bullet.
    Did you know that every atom in our bodies was once part of a star? Think about that… EVERYTHING changes. Caterpillars turn into butterflies and stars turn into @$$holes.

    My favorite is probably the spinning star. It was the logo in use when I got into DC, so it has the nostalgia factor for me. I also like the blue bullet. I'm not terribly fond of the current logo, but I've kind of gotten used to it. I would gladly welcome a change, though.
    I'm still waiting for a new Wonder Twins ongoing. Let's make it happen, DC!

    If DC would go back to using the bullet logo, they'd sell more comics. #Facts.
