Here are the “rules“.

And if you’d like to see the full January 2011 DC solicits head over to CBR.

Woof.  I’m a big fan of single figures and white space…especially when paired together well, and I’m all for awesome branding and the graphic design of logos, but seeing all the books like this for one big solicit was pretty dull to digest.  I get what DC is doing, it’s maybe even smart from a branding and icon standpoint, but it made for some dull, dull, dull covers this month.

Also, while some of these logos are great…some really blow.

Adventure Comics #522. Oh shitty cover…how do I hate thee…let me count the ways!  #1. Lightning Lass has no goddamn pants on.  #2. Phantom Girl has…I mean, I don’t even know what to fucking call whatever the hell she has going on (ETA: boob ladder!  thanks Caanan!).  #3.  Dawnstar…I mean…seriously? I didn’t think there was something worse than Phantom Girl…and yet, here it is!  Right next to her!  #4.  Shadow Lass’ costume is also totally inappropriate but looks kind of cool and even conservative in comparison to the other three, so I feel kind of crazy complaining.  Oh, #5. That logo blows.

On second thought, I rescind #4, as apparently Shadow Lass’ costume apparently usually looks like this:

So the Morticia Adams get up on the cover is WAY better than this tacky gothic binki bullshit.
