Yesterday Neatorama linked to Todd Klein’s series of posts on the ever-evolving Batman logo, and it’s both a nice trip down memory lane for comic fans as well as an informed commentary on design and composition. Since Klein (as a professional letterer and cover designer) has been responsible for any number of iconic comic book logos, he knows of what he speaks. It’s good too see a industry professional breakdown such an important (if overlooked) aspect of comic design, and his insight is second to none.
For more Batman goodness, how about a gallery of The Dark Knight as envisioned by most of his major artists? The Many Faces of Batman is a great (though not complete) archive of how Batman looks from artist to artist, which we first posted back in June of ’05.
