The "NEW" DC Logo
JSA's logo does everything right. From the minute I saw it, it blew my mind. I mean, just look at it! It is so beautiful. The semi-Art Deco design, its' placement just above Captain Marvel's head. It doesn't just say, "new logo," it says, "If you didn't know, Alex Ross is now our new cover artist and we'd like you to know it. By the way, Capt. Marvel's re-joined the team, as well."
It also reflects, stylistically, the time period The JSA comes from.
It does everything a great cover should do. It gets your notice, it tells you what's inside of the comic and most importantly, to this retailer, it sells comics.
As of this morning, JSA #73 totally sold out at my store, necessitating a re-order.
Covers STILL do sell comics. Even without a monkey.
