    it doesn’t look like a comic company logo… maybe they are going into the text book business?

    Horrible. Guess managing 52 titles a month isn’t enough work.

    Love it. Elegant and simple. The 2005 logo always felt WAY too busy and NBA-flavoured, and generally went against the larger movement happening in design, which was emphasizing simple, conceptual forms that could be used for multiple purposes (from billboards down to app icons). I disagree with the attitude of the journalist here. This logo is very much living “in the now.”

      You make some terrific points in your comment and I do agree with the necessity of simplicity for such branding. Perhaps it’s just the shock of seeing it for the first time (much like the impact of the 2005 logo). Coloring issues aside, the peel-back effect is very nicely done.

        An interesting comparison to possibly make is the differing approaches to branding between DC and Marvel. Marvel essentially has abandoned having a logo ever since the mid-nineties. I sure miss the big M with ‘comics’ tagged across its face…

          Sure enough, they added some color and the design now shines.

    Looks like a computer brand and not one for comics.
