Missy Posted May 9, 2005 Report Share Posted May 9, 2005 DC Comics & Warner Bros. Unveil New Logo DC Comics, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company and the world's largest English-language publisher of comics, unveiled a new DC Comics company logo today that will appear on comic books, graphic novels and, for the first time ever, on films and television series based on DC properties. The new DC logo will make its first appearance on a DC Comics cover May 25 when the company publishes DC Special: The Return of Donna Troy #1 and will then appear on the entire DC line the following week. An animated version of the new DC logo premieres June 15 with the release of Batman Begins, the highly anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures film directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes and Morgan Freeman. For more than 70 years, DC Comics has provided entertainment for every age group and interest. In 2005, DC Comics is entering a new phase of growth with the launch of an exciting line-up of new publishing projects, feature films, television programming, licensing ventures and collectible products. The new logo, created by Josh Beatman of Brainchild Studios, highlights DC Comics' ambitious media plans for the future and represents the latest step in Warner Bros. Entertainment and Time Warner's commitment to maximize the value and exposure of DC Comics. "DC is a unique and powerful asset whose characters have long been exceptional performers for Warner Bros. with billions of dollars in cumulative sales," said Kevin Tsujihara, Executive Vice President, Corporate Business Development & Strategy, Warner Bros. Entertainment. "This new logo and branding program is a statement that the DC brand is a strategic asset and vital tool in our approach to creating and developing films, television, merchandising and games." "For generations, comic book fans have been loving supporters of the DC brand: voting us their favorite publisher, counting on us to provide a universe of imagination and entertainment, and looking for our mark as an invitation to try new characters and titles," commented DC Comics President and Publisher Paul Levitz. "With the introduction of our new logo and a comprehensive branding program, we're inviting our fans in all media to continue to count on the DC brand standing for the best comics, classic characters and a fantastic creative experience."
