    the other day i learned that one was done by milton glaser

    why they ever gave it up is beyond me

    they got rid of it because they tried to sue the DC shoe company for having a similar logo without realizing they didn't have a copyright on it. the lawsuit backfired and they ended up having to pay the other company to keep using the swish logo, so they just got rid of it and made sure to copyright the peel when they debuted it

    Reading New Frontier for the first time. It's pretty damn fantastic. About halfway through.

    I'm saddened by Cooke's passing, though I haven't read anything of his before now. But this seems like a decent way to pay a tiny little tribute.

    You mean they didn't own the trademark. That logo is a trademark.

    That's a good looking Joker

    Although it kind of reminds me of Flashpoint Joker

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla KOOKABUNGA LIVES Registered User regular
    It looks like Leto Joker and TDKR Joker had a baby

    I don't hate it, namely because it avoids the many pitfalls of Leto Joker

    Actually what it really makes me think of is that time that DC was allegedly courting Tilda Swinton to play the Joker

    Regardless, I think the white suit is a great look for the Joker

    I know that the purple tailcoat is considered to be pretty iconic for him, but he actually changes costumes fairly regularly, and I'd love it if something else could become equally iconic

    All white with purple to serve as a direct contrast to Batman's all black with yellow is a great choice

    There is zero chance he isn't showing up in either Batman or Suicide Squad before long

    Like SS is just straight up the movie team with everyone getting movie style costume changes

    Ain't no way they're not also going to throw Joker in early on

    I like the suit, but the "normal" face bugs me. I wonder how many artists will draw it that way and not his usual long exaggerated face

    I heard Titans Hunt ended and I was curious to know if they explained...
    ...how Donna could be part of a Titans team years ago since her N52-self was apparently born recently. Also, I heard they sorta teased pre-Flashpoint Wally at the end?

    What's the over-under on how many years until the next brand reboot that DC does?

    Five years. That's my bet, too

    If and/or when this line fails the live up to whatever absurd expectations they have, maybe they'll start looking for the actual root cause

    (I live in hope, okay)

    Didio and Harras will work at DC until they decide to retire or move on. The world isn't a nice enough place for them to ever get fired.

    A dude on Reddit got a leaked copy of the Rebirth one shot and is posting some pictures

    The big shocking reveal?
    Watchmen is now part of the DCU in some capacity, as there is a full page splash of Batman holding up the smiley pin with blood on it

    They are seemingly responsible for whatever it is that causes the Rebirth event and the mixing of the two timelines according to the leaker

    The other, less completely ridiculously insane, reveals:
    The original JSA is back, there are three different Jokers running around and original flavor ginger Wally West is back (likely in addition to New 52 Wally)

    I'm not even mad

    It is so stupid and hilarious and out of NOWHERE that fuck it, let this shit play out I want to see where this goes

    It probably helps that
    I don't love Watchmen a whole bunch (i don't think it is bad at all and have enjoyed reading it) but it isn't a seminal classic for me so I don't really give a shit I suppose it they bring it back again

    Judging from covers that are already out but make sense with the leaks
    it looks like the 3 different Jokers are old school silver age Joker, 70s-80s Joker and modern day Joker

    It is the logical endpoint of DC's thought process
    People like edgy, dark, serious comics

    DC owns the edgiest, darkest, most serious comic

    Put it in your main universe and logically you'll sell bazingas of copies!!!

    Nah. This was all Johns. He has talked about how Rebirth is his baby and he is the mastermind behind it and it is also his last comic for a while so he wanted to go out with a bang.

    Besides, they did make Watchmen comics and they didn't set the world on fire.
