The Walking Dead has had a fairly consistent look over the years, but, like the comic itself, sometimes you just have to kill off something you love to shake things up a bit…
That being said, there’s been a lot of talk about the new logo, as seen on the cover of The Walking Dead #127. Do you like the new direction of this trade dress, or are you fonder of Ye Olde logo? Do you reminisce about the days of the Walking Dead Weekly logo? Or were the Lucille-variants of the Something to Fear arc the pinnacle of design greatness? Vote below and let us know![yop_poll id=”29″]
I like them all but the Weekly. That one looks horrible!
I agree, it seems to be missing character that the other logos all share.
The weird thing is i never noticed how bade the weekly one was until they put them all together like this but it really stands out, oh, now I feel bad for it.
It has to be the original classic logo.
Don’t ruin my comic covers.
We fear change almost as much as the living!
Please don’t change it, I don’t like the grainy textured look or the Uniform text size.
Keep it Bold, original and Iconic 🙂
Personally i like the All Out War one i feel like it was new and didn’t take away from the artwork as much as the “Classic” one does.
I think the border is the game-changer here. The uniform “new” style on the Lucille cover, with the border, looks fine. As does the classic (obviously). It just doesn’t look right without it.
I liked the white AOW on cover 127, but now that I am giving it a closer look & comparing it in a different color, I think I prefer the classic overall.
What is your second and third favorite covers ?
In order of faves, I think I’d put ’em like this:
4) New Beginning
5) Weekly (because it’s there)
How ’bout you?
1. New Beginning 2. Classic 3 . The Lucille 4. AOW 5. Weekly
I like the name of the arc on it. Maybe at the bottom with the artists’ names.
That’s a big thing I like about it too .
Me to, on the last thread I read people saying it was pointless, but I like it there.
1) New Beginning,
2) The Lucille
I know am going to be in the minority but I really like the new beginnings logo, the more i see it the more i like it.
Look at that…BAM!
The Lucille is better than the one on 127.
I really like the new logo it seems to fit perfect.
Please go back to the classic! It’s so iconic for The Walking Dead!
Mark Strong should play Negan in the show!
He is a really good actor I think he would fit the role well .
I’d prefer Henry Rollins.
That guy would work, too!
Of course he would.
We should make casting predictions for every person in the comic that hasn’t been cast yet .
Adrien Brody = Jesus!
That’s good casting… I’m trying to come up with someone good to play Dwight .
I got somebody in mind for him, so I was thinking about Ezekiel…
Let’s put some dreds on Idris Elba & grey out the beard, good to go for Ezekiel!
He’s a good choice I didn’t think about him .
Who ya got for Dwight? We need a female, too. Holly?
Jonathan Banks (breaking bad) = Dougalss
this is a really good choice .
Hell yeah !
gwendoline christie (game of thrones) = Holly?
Oh, that’s perfect!
last otherwise jason will have none left to do and it was his idea 🙂
Ron Glass (Firefly) = Gabriel?
Jason will come up with a whole other list, watch-n-see!
The one actor who came to mind for Gabriel was Denzel Washington. Now, could you imagine TWD landing him?!
Yeah, he could be awesome and you know its a wish list so we can cast whoever we want 🙂
perhaps Amber Heard as Holly ?
Who ya got for Heath?
Dule Hill as Heath ?
I like it!
J.K. Simmons as Gregory
Easiest thing in the world.
Riley Smith as Carson:
And Kiefer Sutherland as Dr.Carson :
that would be cool Kiefer Sutherland is a awesome actor
His fathers Donald Sutherland is also a great actor (the hunger games :D)
Bradley Cooper = Dwight?
Him or Ryan Gosling.
yeah he would be a better match.
James Franco as Eric
so you like that one ?
The actor himself & the match!
Forget Gosling…this is perfect…right down to the eyebrow(s)!
I like this pick better than mine he is a great actor and he is funny.
This so needs to happen!!
Tony Curran as Dwight ?
Alexander Skarsgard as Aaron
Oh, you’re good! What’d I tell ya, stuart?
yeah he’s good, that Aaron one above is spot on, good choice
He would be good also
Lyndsy Fonseca as Sherry ?
How about Denise?
Judy Greer as Denise Cloyd
Earl Sutton ?
Let’s put Jack Black on it.
that would be really cool I’m a big fan of his band .
Not impressed with many funny guys, but he’s one we like! School of Rock…. Nacho Libre…Kung Fu Panda…Shark Tale
Shallow Hal is one of my favorites
That was the 1st DVD we bought when we got a DVD player!
Do you still have it ?
No, I traded it in for something else. Regretted it not long after. 🙁
Hey….name for your gang! Tenacious T!
LOL!!! That’s a good name ! I’m complete ..
Still got the DVD player…you want that? lol!
I’m all about blu ray =)
Have only had one DVD player…one of the 1st gens….you can imagine how big & heavy! Stored it away when we got the PS3. Still got a working VCR, too. Ancient stuff!
I wish I had a VCR not that would be cool .
What in the world would you do with it?
the basics I would use it to cook and clean .
Ahhhh, Tenacious T! Such sweet music to my ears!!
wait long periods of time for the movie to rewind then I could get stuff done around the house .
LADIES, HERE’S THE SECRET!! I’m hooking my VCR back up when I get home!!!
We still have a VCR. My husband uses it to watch old tapes of his high school and college football days. Clearly he didn’t go to the league or he’d have transferred them lol.
Hell yeah, my favorite song is “tribute”.
What about Shiva? I wonder if they could pull that off. It’d be soooo badass to see Ezekiel first show up with Shiva on a chain
They could do it. Borrow some of those big circus cats. Remember how cool Gladiator was?
Exactly what I was thinking. I was reading on some Forums a while ago people thought they wouldn’t do it. But I think they’ll be able to handle it. I can’t wait to see the kingdom in the the show. I think it’ll adapt amazingly.
If they take the show that far, they can’t do it without Ezekiel & certainly can’t have Zeke without Shiva! No way!
Gotta have Dwight too..i wonder if he’ll be burned up . I don’t know if amc will go for that.
If they picked a pretty boy like bradly cooper I doubt they would burn his face up. I thought it’d be cool for Daryl to take Dwight’s place. But there’s no way in hell they would burn daryls precious face haha
Nicotero will hook ’em up. My only question is how will they adapt Negan.
i have some faith in TV Negan. I never would have guessed Id like a toned down Governor better then ruthless comic governor. But with the whole “screwing with the wrong people” it does scare me a little. Mabey he’ll just say “shit” a lot. I think that’s aloud on TV haha and I’d like henrey Rollins to play him. I thought I heard somewhere that kirkman wants him too.
I like TV Governor more also
I liked the toned down Gov in the show…they portrayed him more on the psychotic side. They’ll have to make Negan extremely vain! I like your choice for actor!
With the kind of money the show is making I think Shiva will show up .
The guy that voice Lee Everett for the telltale game
I’m going to Google him .
Dave Fennoy oh yes this dude looks exactly like him .
Dave Fennoy in the house
I thought so too the first time I saw him. I don’t think he’s ever acted though – just voice acting.
He needs to take some acting lessons if he has not acted before he has a couple years before Ezekiel comes on to the show .
Have you played the Telltale games? I love his voice. He does a phenomenal job as Lee Everett.
Nevermind of course you’ve played them!
Yes I play them. I love the Telltale series . Do you play them ?
Oh yeah I’m addicted to them just like everything else TWD. I love Clementine. Are you playing them as released or do you have enough self control like Bastet to wait for the whole season?
Lol! Afraid not much self control here. For one, I’m dumping money everywhere on TWD loot….something’s bound to take a little longer to get my hands on. For another, I’m a hardcopy chick….I prefer the disk. Once I get the disk, can sit down & play HOURS, nonstop!
I play them as released I usually try to get off work early .
haha that’s awesome. I started playing season 2 that way. I’ve thought about downloading them at midnight and staying up all night but haven’t done it yet. I’m still emotionally drained from season 1.
jesus this is good too
I think Stephen Amell would be a great Jesus he is a beast
Yes. I approve of this choice.
Kevin Rankin as Nicholas
Kevin Rankin as Kenny in the Telltale Game.
Aghhhh! No! Well, actually – maybe. I am so distraught that Jesus is gay because that makes him completely unattainable and I find him smokin’ hot in the comic. Although…I guess comic book characters are unattainable by nature anyway. He’s still in my top 3 men in the comic. Depending on who they cast he could become my favorite character on the show and I’m not really a fan of Adrian Brody. Too skinny.
Let me just clarify, in case I wasn’t clear in that first comment: nothing against Jesus being gay, or anyone else in the comics or show for that matter, that just means that he doesn’t like boobs. Since I have them, I can’t pretend he’d ever like me…unlike Rick. LOL A girl can dream…
My comic hottie until proven unattainable is Luke.
I agree on all levels here, except I do like Adrien Brody in the movies. Looks-wise, he is too skinny. He was the 1st one that popped in my mind for Jesus, tho. Here’s another one that I saw recently that made me think of casting for Jesus….Eric Balfour:
Yes. Not sure I’ve seen him in anything but I could see him as Jesus. Believable athleticism, some experience with martial arts, and effortless bad-assness are required to be successful as Jesus. He may be difficult to cast.
This guy was in the movie Skyline…..seen that?
I think I like Chris’ choice best. He also seems to have a very particular set of skills…check out Arrow on IMDB.
Chiwetel Ejiofor = Heath
Heath.. I think you are spot on with this one .
I’d love him but I think he might be too big name now to be open to being a regular.
Yes I am jumping into your casting call thread as thought it started today lol.
That’s alright….I feel sorry for you guys who missed out on all this fun!
We just did a butt load of work for these AMC/Dead producers!! All they gotta do is hit this post!!
I bet everyone has already been cast a season ago .
We’ve done a jam up job here tho!!
yes we have =]
The Walking Dead Superlatives
(saving for another lull)
My walking dead family having fun without me
well done on the casting my crew
where’s yours you should come up with some .
Well if beaker dosent get the part of lucille then I may have to go on some sort of protest lol
Truly my favorite matchup! That was awesome!!
I’ve heard a few people say that I agree with that also .
American’s love to make Brits the bad guys, so yeah this would be a good fit, a really good fit now that I think about it. hmmmm
Who do you think will play Lucille?
“You want to shave my head and wrap what round me?” Beaker from the Muppets, at his Lucille audition
Brits do bad guys well. Good guys, too. GO BRITS!
Who do you think should play Eduardo ?
Michael Pena….liked him in the movie “Crash”.
Good call this dude is a great actor I really liked him in ” Devil “.
And “Tower Heist”
Oh yeah he was hilarious in that.
Max Arciniega !
Seth Gilliam as Gabriel ?
Hmmmm….I dunno…. pictured Gabriel older… but you know how they like to toss it around on us!
I bet Seth is playing Blade on the show .
Nice merger! Day walker fighting off Dead walkers!
who would play Kal ?
Ken Leung…he’s been in a few movies I like.
I will look him up asap .
I know their faces but I have to look up the names.
Oh I know this guy he has been in a few movies I like he is cool .
It’s the way you guys talk
Looks like another poll op! We started something similar on the Writer’s Room, taking about our favorite covers (not the logo stuff here):
I’d like The Walking Dead Weekly Logo, except without the weekly under it. Thatd be awesome.
Well, of course they would take off weekly, but maybe MONTHLY instead.
I like the new beginning it shows more of the cover art I mean isent that one thing the walking dead is known for also
The new beginning logo looks to corporate and has no character. The classic logo has that outsider dramatic flare to it. You can hear and feel the words.
The classic logo is the best indeed
This is kind of a tough question because while I like the classic logo design the best I love that the new logo leaves more room for cover art.
The original and it’s not even close
127 looks really bad, I hope they go back to the original or atleast keep the all out war one or else it kind of ruins my collection. I like things to be uniform and iconic. Stop changing it up
THE ORIGINAL IS THE SiGNATURE OF THE COMIC, that said, it is great design, original and bad ass, the new one is just too small and lack of cojones
Hey will you re add the logo that has the most votes ?? Please answer.
The classic is unstoppable, iconic, this was the reason I beggined reading the Walking Dead, in 2009 I was in a store with a friend and I saw an issue of TWD (58) with this BIG LOGO, it attracted me, I flipped over the book and I instantly loved it
!! I bought the trade paperbacks and was waiting for more issues to come out. If it wasn’t for this classic logo, I would’nt have been a fan of TheWalkingDead .
Lizzy ! The logo that has the most votes will be the logo for 127 and going ????????? Please answer.
You’ve veen using a great logo for 10 years on the comic issues, on the trade paperbacks, for the action figures, everything comic related ! Why RUIN it now ??? Keep the good ol’logo
This must be an april’s fool joker number 2 , the new logo is impossible to see , it’s too small, it has no cojones, it has no personality, it is not iconic , everyone think it is “modern”but it’s not please keep the classic logo :, (
The classic logo has the most votes , give us the classic logo and stop making us suffer.
GIVE US BACK THE CLASSIC LOGO.
Please be realistic, the new design sucks, keep the old one that made the success of the comic
Classic logo but I do like the new look and that it allows more space for Charlie’s art which is really what matters.
Have you ever tried to put the classic logo on issue 127 to see HOW GOOD it looks ? Seriously
There is too many votes for the classic logo , why don’t you just put the classoc logo and satisfy your readers ???? Seriously the new logo lacks of personality. Don’t let your fans wait any longer , the numbers speak for themselves.
There is too many votes for the classic logo , why don’t you just put the classic logo and satisfy your readers ???? Seriously the new logo lacks of personality. Don’t let your fans wait any longer , the numbers speak for themselves.
PLEASE ANSWER ME I DON”T WANT TO HAVE FALSE HOPES : WILL THE LOGO THAT HAS THE MOST VOTES BE ON THE ISSE 127 AND ONGOING ???? PLEASE REPLY !!!! I AM ONE OF THE 82 % OF THE PEOPLE THAT WANT TO SEE THE CLASSIC LOGO AND NOT THAT *ahem* “modern” LOGO (nowadays everything small and monochromatic is considered modern duh).
It’ll be OK, marco. They have a tendency to take our opinions into consideration, so even if the new logo makes it to print, they could revert soon thereafter. Ya gonna buy anyway, right?
Of course,I will get it. I’ll enjoy what’s inside the book , I have high hopes for the story.
:'( I don’t like this new design, I’ve had TWD issues everytime with that awesome logo, now i have to accept that crappy logo that I will never like because it’s too small to see 🙁 The art of the covers fits so well with the classic logo .
Good God, that lilac-colored logo from All Out War was hideous!
How about the white on 127? I think that’s cool.
The Lucille! Fuck yeah!
The original is the best always will be it’s always hard to top the first one. It’s like one of my favorite movies The Crow with Brandon Lee. The fisrt was amazing and the rest that followed not so good
Some things people shouldn’t even attempt to touch. “The Crow” is one of them (maybe the TWD logo, too)!
Please bring back the classic! I HATE this new shrunken crap!!
I am going to be honest and say I am not going to be purchasing the new versions.
Let’s consider these logos were musicians :
The classic logo is the Legendary JIMMY PAGE
And the new Beginning logo is justin bieber
LIZZY IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like a landslide vote…..
Almost 200 comments on this, someone is jonesing for The Walking Dead.
See how good it looks with the classic boss !!!!
