Just sort of browsed my way here, but I wanted to chime in my appreciation for the lettering here. It's just perfect. Bravo! (the alternates are nice as well) I don't spend much time thinking about lettering (or coloring until the last few years), but I really appreciate when it's done well, and I'm beginning to notice missed opportunities when it's done poorly/blandly.

Thanks for the kind words, chaps. I think it was one of those "polish a classic" design jobs rather than a "reinvent the wheel" job. A bit like your beautiful version of the Spirit, Darwyn. I'd like to see the two-heads version on a T-shirt myself. San Diego beers here we come... Rian

I may love the little "The" the best. And, I must admit that I'm a bit disappointed to learn that the 3-D covers, reknowned as they are for their graphical excellence, don't necessarily make the best sales-based logos. I suppose that's what splash pages are for.

Thanks for stopping by, Darwyn, I appreciate your comment, and I know Rian will as well.

Nice bit, Todd. Rian really did a great deal of wonderful work on the Spirit project, and it was all sharp. Over 20 executions, if I recall. The Batman/Spirits in sillo are particularly smart looking. It's unfortunate they didn't work for the cover. They are amazing! Best, Darwyn
