25 Blast-From-The-Past Comic Designs

Post pobrano z: 25 Blast-From-The-Past Comic Designs

In honor of the movie release of Logan, based on one of the most popular comics of all time, I’ve decided to put together a collection of comic based graphic design projects. But before we get into that, here’s 10 quick and interesting facts about comics!

  1. The font Comic Sans is based on Dave Gibbons’ lettering in the Watchmen comic books. (He calls the font “dreadful.”)
  2. The world’s largest comic book collection belongs to the Library of Congress. They currently hold over 100,000 individual issues.
  3. Comic book letterers avoid words like “Clint” and “flick” because during printing the letters can run together, making the words look like profanity.
  4. When the comics code was created, it prohibited judges and law enforcement agents from being depicted negatively.
  5. Our universe actually exists in the Marvel multiverse. Our Earth is Earth-1218.
  6. Michael Jackson wanted to play Spider-Man in a movie, so he tried to buy Marvel comics in the ’90s.
  7. Marvel got around a law that increases taxes on toys that resemble humans by claiming that X-Men figures were mutants, not humans.
  8. Wayne Enterprises, which is controlled by Batman’s alter ego, Bruce Wayne, owns The Daily Planet, the newspaper that Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent, works for.
  9. Spider-man has a hyphen in it so that people don’t confuse him with Superman.
  10. Spock from Star Trek has taken on Wolverine in a battle. Spock won.
