Believe it or not, I like both DC and Marvel Comics.
1934-1940There was no logo for the publisher as it was at the time called National Allied Publications.
NAP's sister company Detective Comics, Inc. was launched with this logo.
In 1970, National Comics used different logos for some of their comic books.
After the company merged with All-American Publications in 1944, National Comics launched a new logo five years later.
This DC logo was used in some of the comics.
Five years after being bought by Kinney National Company, which would later acquire Warner Bros. in 1969 before becoming Warner Communications (now Time Warner), National Comics introduced a new logo, which would serve as a forerunner to the 1977 logo.
National Comics had a secondary logo with the slogan "The Line of Super Stars".
After Jenette Kahn became publisher of the comics in 1976, she commissioned graphic designer Milton Glaser to create a new logo, which became the iconic DC bullet logo. Following after that, National Comics officially rebranded themselves as DC Comics.
Following after the DC Universe was changed in Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC Comics had a hand to do a possible rebrand to Superman Comics in test newsstands.
DC officially retired the bullet logo in favour of the spin logo, which debuted in Batman Begins.
DC changed its logo to a flipback logo, which debuted in The Dark Knight Rises and also to mark the new continuity of the publisher: New 52.
Marvel Comics was founded in 1939 as Timely Comics.
1957-1961 (primary) and 1961-1987 (corporate and secondary)
Atlas was rebranded as Marvel and introduced its new logo in 1957. This variant of the logo is from 1963, which marked then-current line-up of superheroes (Thor, Iron Man, Daredevil, Captain America, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Hercules, Thing, Namor, Hulk and Human Torch).
Marvel Comics Group had the MCG emblem from 1967 to 1971.
Marvel Comics was simply known as Marvel Comics Group from 1971 to 1983.
Marvel Comics Group was reverted back to Marvel Comics in 1983.
After parent company Marvel Entertainment Group was bought by New World Pictures, a new logo appeared in 1987. It became Marvel's iconic logo from 1987 to 2001.
A year after Joe Quesada became editor-in-chief, the logo was changed to a wordmark saying Marvel Comics.
Marvel changed its logo to a red and white logo, which was unveiled in 2000 in the end credits of X-Men but was fully used in 2002, debuting in Spider-Man.
