Whammo!


A few years back I got a call from Curtis King at DC Comics. He wanted new logos for the Batman line of books. It took me all of a nanosecond to say "Jesus Christmas!!! I'll do it!" Jim Lee was starting his run on the book with issue 608, (the "HUSH" storyline for the non-nerds around here...) and that's where this logo first appeared. I wanted the logo to feel new and at the same time harken back to the glory days, not to mention we just had to get Batman's mug back on the thing. This was the greatest gig ever, thanks Curtis! I'll post logo sketches and more Batman goodness a little down the line.

Stellar Chris !!!! Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. Yes i am a comics nut with DC being my first love. I of course have seen your magnificent logo in print and love it . Fantastic work. You did a great job of pleasing modern tastes and trends yet still keeping a classic iconic feel. Just great. I'll bookmark your blog and be back often.
