These are well executed examples of lettering. But it’s the feelings they evoke about the characters that makes them special.
Let’s take a closer look.
For Ed Piskor’s Grand Design, you can see the 90s influence of the X-Men cartoon show. Even though it’s paper, you can almost see the volt of electricity flowing through the letters.
With Hawkeye’s lettering you get the feeling that this is a hero who’s all about one thing: hitting the target.
The British X-men? Probably too many swords on this one. But it does express a royal, knights of the round table feel.
Slapstick. Zany. Funny. Heroic.
The Fantastic Four lettering captures all the energy of what makes the Fantastic Four adventures so well, fantastic!
