A look at the design of comic book logos & their covers

NO GO: Captain Victory
I honestly have no idea what the concept behind this logo design is. The book is part of a line that is resurrecting old Jack Kirby (sci-fi) properties with Alex Ross at the creative helm. Ross is know for having a design slant that favours classic/deco type treatments.Usually when an old property gets revived the instinct is to either directly reference the original logo or redesign it and thematically link it to the source material (see my earlier post on Prophet), but always design it with the thematic voice of the series in mind.Why then, does an obvious Kirby sci-fi book have a logo that looks like its written with a felt-tip pen?
