    That's obvious. I never said that it isn't an interest to some people and my original comment was clearly me just expressing my opinion.

    Just curious why you seemed to get defensive when he told an innocuous anecdote.

    I'm not getting defensive, I just don't see the point of his second anecdote when I made my position clear after the first one. It just appears that he is trying to change my mind when it clearly will not be changed

    Fair enough. Apologies to getting involved, was really none of my business anyway.

    Sorry to be the source of any bad feeling. I guess it's not fair to Deku but his remarks just provided an easy prompt for me to remember some anecdotes from my past. I wasn't really expecting to change his mind. That wasn't the point.

    But I still think everyone has something they obsess about, even if it's something that has nothing to do with comics--there's likely something in someone's life that seems trivial yet is important to them. However, in my experience, people who read comics usually are obsessed with trivial things in them. So a person should be able to comprehend the minor obsessions of others without having the same obsessions.

    Like I say, it was just something I thought was interesting to talk about and gave me an excuse to bring in my own experience. And that Dial B for Blog is worth looking at.

    Cheers.

    I noticed that the Bendis logo was different but I couldn’t tell why. I listened to a you tube lecture by Arlen Schumer about Ira Schnapp and holy cow what a talent!

    I immediately noticed the change when I saw the ad. I love the slight reversion to the older logo. As a kid I spent hours and hours tracing every logo onto notebook paper. I loved the DC Comics Presents, Brave and the Bold, Marvel Team-up and Marvel Two in One books that gave every character their own logo (although I was very disappointed when that logo was just basic block type.)
    With the "return" of the more classic logo, it brings in some anticipation for the stories reminding me of how they made me feel as a kid. Which is exactly what was DC's intent I'm sure!

    Also the 'u' is different ..smooth versus jagged edges

    Interesting. Typography is something I've always had an interest in, being an illustrator and what not. I like the change.

    I remember when the logo changed in 1983. It took a bit for me to figure what was different but I instantly new it was changed. I used to look at the Flash logo and count the speed lines behind each letter so I definitely paid attention to logos.

    The Ira Schnapp logo was a formal redraw of the Shuster design from SUPERMAN No. 1 (1939) which also has the angled U. Schnapp's version makes those angles sharper. And the flat edges, together with the 3D and the sheen, always made me think of steel--i.e the Man of Steel. Likewise the E is similar to how they drew steel girders in comics (used to be a lot of steel girders in comics).

    Looks like the retro-logo is just for promotional pieces. The pictures I've seen of the actual Superman #1 comic has the standard '83 logo on it. Bummer. I was kind of hoping they'd go back to the classic one for a while.
