    back issue

    this is the logo I'm thinking about using for a comic I'm working on. It's about an alternative journalist going under deep cover in a black operations task force. Since this story takes place in flashbacks I figured it would be appropriate to use backwards text.

    I like the idear about spelling it backwards, but i have a hard time reading it.

    ...maybe it would work better if it was only written once, in some sort of styalised writing...

    Make the white lettering fade out. It'll help increase readability.

    thank you guys. I'll toy with it a little.

    S. sketch: The GN is probably going to be in B/W so fading out may not be viable.
    Pretzel: Do you think the connected "I" and "K" could be interfering with the legibility?

    If it fits the style, you could try halftone.

    I think I'll stylize this after I work out the cover. But I definitely have been consittering half tone as an option, but I'll need to finish the cover first.

    I've been toying with the spacing. I think these are a large improvement over the first. If anybody has a favorite let me know.

    The last one is great.
