Creative teams and titles won’t be the only things changing with upcoming DC Comics Rebirth, as DC Entertainment has revealed a brand new logo for their comic book line. The new logo will debut with the release of the DC Universe: Rebirth Special #1 by DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns on May 25.
“While comics continue to be the heart and soul of DC, the brand has evolved to now stand for powerful storytelling across so many different forms of media. DC is home to the greatest Super Heroes and Super-Villains, and the new logo has the character and strength to stand proudly alongside DC’s iconic symbols,” said Amit Desai, DC Entertainment Senior Vice President of Marketing and Global Franchise Management.“The launch of the new logo is the perfect tribute to DC’s legacy, exciting future and most importantly, our fans.”
The new branding will debut with Johns issue that kicks off the Rebirth across the line, but will also show up immediately on the various digital platforms including the DC websites, social media channels, DC All Access web series and app, and many other places.
“I’m very proud that REBIRTH will be the first comic book published with the new DC logo.” Johns said. “To me, REBIRTH and the new DC logo are built on what’s come before while looking to what will come tomorrow. I can’t wait for people to see it on the cover.”
DC Comics’ logo has changed many times since the comics line was started, with it’s famous “bullet” logo having the most staying power from 1976 till the line underwent a change in 2005 and then again in 2012 for the New 52 reboot.
Pentagram, a design consultant, helped develop the new identity and logo in partnership with DC Entertainment.
