The Legion of Super-Heroes Logos

When Superboy left the Legion in No. 259 of his former book, Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes was retitled to Legion of Super-Heroes v2 for the January 1980 issue. DC Comics staff letterer Todd Klein created a new logo for the book. I’ve always thought it a great logo utilising three-point perspective.

Another favourite goes back to Adventure Comics No. 317, February 1964. Adding type to the existing Adventure Comics, Ira Schnapp gave us the logo which would serve the Legion for the remainder of the Silver Age. I’ve created an updated version which adds Supergirl to the title.
