Graphic Design is Joe Quesada’s Passion; Possible New Marvel Logo? [Update: It’s Just Shoes]

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada teased a “secret design project” he’s been working on for the last month on Twitter ahead of New York Comic Con. Due to the image he posted, which appears to be the current Marvel logo with its perspective skewed over a black and red halftone gradient, many are speculating that Quesada plans to reveal a new Marvel logo.

Of course, some might wonder why Marvel would change its current simple and recognizable logo for one as unnecessarily busy as the one in Quesada’s clip, but perhaps that’s not the real logo at all, or maybe the project is something else entirely and this is just misdirection. Either way, there’s one thing we can certainly take away from Quesada’s tweet: graphic design is his passion.

Graphic Design is Joe Quesada's Passion; Teases Possible New Marvel Logo

Update: as Bleeding Cool commenter “irrg” points out, it’s actually just shoes. The Marvel shoes will be produced by Adidas and released at Foot Locker at Herald Square on October 4th, then at all Foot Locker locations on October 18th. The shoes will cost $150, which is cheaper than some Marvel variant covers, and you can’t wear variant covers. Well, you could, but they wouldn’t provide much support for your feet.

What do you think of what might be Marvel’s new shoe logo? Let us know in the comments.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
