Misread title as Loos through the ages   :-[
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

We didn't forget this one, right?!

Holy shit, that's a good cover!

Really want that as a poster, minus the strapline and barcode.

The one where the 2000AD logo is a set of brass knuckles that Dredd is punching the reader with. Prog 2023

Ah c'mon, the original logo's a classic piece of design - bold, brash and deftly rendered. Great that it's still being used as the 'heritage' logo, in the same way that Adidas still use the trefoil for retro products and the three stripes for up-to-date stuff.

I agree - the original logo has a lot of retro cool, the fan is the most iconic. There's a reason why those two are so often used and revived while the chrome one (to my mind) never has been.

I used to love the Chrome logo. In many ways 'my' logo - see the point about James Bond, Doctor Who and nostaglia from before.

When the logos were on t-shirts and key rings not that long along I bounced along to buy those ones... stopped... looked at it.... and it slowly daned on me, however hard I tried to resist ... that it was actually... well.... pretty damned rubbish.

It was a moment of revalation I didn't enjoy. I've not watched a Roger Moore James Bond since...
