Archie Unveils New Logos, via The Beat.

More at Comics Worth Reading

Just... bummer. To keep things brief before I have a fury-induced aneurism, this design direction is depressingly generic and diminutive. They are lost on the covers and lack the personalities they should represent. Another blow to American design, this is doubly shameful considering that there still exists a bevy of talented typographers and designers readily available to offer unique custom lettering for such iconic titles.

This is part of our artistic heritage, Archie should care and so should you.
