To put our pride where our pitch is, we’ve decided this is the moment to do something we’ve debated for the last few years and introduce a new DC logo. The symbol that graces DC SPECIAL will be spinning onto the whole line in June, and as fast as we can, onto all our films, TV shows, video games, licensed products and the DC DIRECT line as well. Look for the launch of the film version on BATMAN BEGINS, and keep your eyes peeled to play art detective as you watch.
It seems like it was only a moment ago (could it really be over 25 years?) when legendary designer Milton Glaser’s DC logo went up in the corner of our comics, just as my first LEGION story was being published.

It marked years in which we expanded the creative reach of comics, changed how talented people could be rewarded and recognized for their efforts in comics, and had some great times that we shared with our readers. I’m confident that when we look back on the era of this new DC symbol, lovingly created by designer Josh Beatman of Brainchild Studio under the care of our design wizards Richard Bruning and Georg Brewer, it’ll have just as awesome a run.
