The love of this Batlogo
Let's start at ground zero shall we? I was 4 in 1966 and, according to my big sisters, learnt to read with Batman comics rather than the books i should have been using.
Of course, looking back at those tales now they're pretty silly and pretty camp - riding fully on the wave of the newly launched TV show.
As much as they were like that though, this logo - and especially when it has the checkerboard background as here - still now, after all these years, sets off a massive emotional response in me. Can't explain it, its just something about the hunched shoulder and the face peering out, along with the font used. No matter what colour it was for that issue, or what daftness was going on below it, it ticks all the right boxes.
