I immensely enjoy proofs of devoted fandom on the internet – websites dedicated to one tiny, particular aspect of comics (or any other object of fandom), with all minute details and obsessions included. Here’s an exampe : an exegesis of Superman’s Symbol, Shield, Logo and Its History! (That’s exclamation mark included, of course).
This labor of love deals with every form and format of the big diamond S, from its shield form up until the proliferation that plagues the current DC absurdiverse. Including, of course, my personal favorite : the Fleischer symbol, as featured in the cartoons from the 1940’s and shown above.
