    Hey, Molly, I don’t know if you read my response to Mike’s column, but here’s what I said:

    “Im-not-so-ho, this constant changing of the logo makes me think (and feel) like Warner Bros./DC doesn’t know what the hell it’s doing.

    As Marvel certainly does. Not only is Marvel’s logo simple and clean and easily reduced or enlarged, it’s been around now for years and years, possibly forever…and it’s amazingly clever and fun openings on the little and big screens ABSOLUTELY and IMMEDIATELY captures its history and enthralls the audience, telegraphing excitement to all viewers.”

    Just to emphasize, I totally LOVE the way you see the comic art and pages unfolding on the screen and the sound of flipping through pages with Marvel’s TV and cinema logo and/or opening.

    And ABSOLUTELY NO WAY does that new DC logo make me think of Supes, Wonder Woman, or Batman.

    What it does make me think of is a heraldic crest, with those serifs. And what the hell that has to do with comics, Supes, Wonder Woman, or Batman…You got me!

    As Henry Fonda says (in Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West), after he shoots the guy through both suspenders and then his belt buckle “How can you trust a man don’t even trust his own pants?”
