Daredevil logo design, and more from Marvel Comics

October 16th, 2014

Superheroes are so hot right now.

Over the last few years, it seems as though a new big screen adaptation of a Marvel comic book favourite has been released every other week. As well as the Spiderman and Superman remakes, recent cinematic highlights have included Iron man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Further comic book releases are due to hit our screens in 2015.

But it’s not just the big screen that is enjoying Marvel-lous success. Off the back of the success of TV boxset series such as Breaking Bad, Homeland and The Wire, we are now entering a new era of serial comic book adaptations for the small screen. Gotham, a Batman spin-off charting the rise of Commissioner Gordon before Batman’s arrival in the city is due to hit screen very soon, and press coverage has started to ramp up for the launch of another superhero TV series in 2015: Daredevil.

Marvel recently launched the logo design for the new Daredevil series (above). Online commentators have remarked on how refreshing it is to see a logo that is true to its comic book roots, rather than being ‘sexed up’ for a new televisual audience.

While I can’t call myself a comic book geek, I do really like the style of artwork used in graphic novels and comics – they’re simple, bold and evocative of the central characters. So, I did some research and found a few of my favourite comic book logos. Enjoy!

That Spider-Man logo is terrible. It doesn't capture the spirit or nature of the character, the book, or even the cartoon it was created for at all. It never fit. Otherwise, good choices. ;]

I keep my hand up. I totally agree. These simple iconic logos are well recognized without much gimmick. However one can easy see the trend of slanted, boxed letters in a perspective such as X-Men, Superman, and Daredevil, pretty much came out of one press. Not that there is anything wrong with that :)
