Comics’ Greatest Logos


4 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Veteran comic book letterer and type designer Todd Klein assembled this list of the “greatest” comic book logos in history. The intention was to identify the marks that “have had the greatest impact, are instantly recognizable and have withstood the test of time.” There aren’t a lot of surprises here, but the list really does show how iconic many of these logos have become, how deeply ingrained into our collective pop cultural memory they are.

It’s not just a list, either. Klein, whose grasp of the typographic history of comics probably has very few peers, identifies the designer of each logo and each logo’s various iterations. Fascinating stuff — well, to me at least. See the whole list here
