Classic Comic Mastheads

I was quite taken with these evolutionary masthead designs for some of my favourite comic book characters. Instantly recognisable it;s interesting to see how they’ve evolved and actually how basic they are. It’s funny too, when inspecting them closely, how poorly executed they actually are. Somehow the instant recognition and familiarity acts as a cloaking device for this.

Having said all of that, they still deliver that frisson of excitement – the promise of a story to come and a fat slice of escapism.
