Pulled From My Files #39: BLACK CONDOR LOGO

I have very little on this logo in my files, just two marker sketches. I like the Condor silhouette on this one, but the R looks too much like a B. That could have been fixed, but Curtis King and the editor must not have liked this direction for the revamp of the 1940s character in 1992.

    Any chance you’ll log a piece about the new DC logo? Really want to hear your take and again flabbergasted they didn’t ask you…

    I won’t be commenting on the new DC logo, but I like it better than the previous one. That’s my only comment.
