Funny to see that TFW2005 to claim that the image is the new logo. :P

I've seen a TPB with art better than the normal comics. This is pathetic. It's only a photoshopped "logo" and a title.

So you did... Well,... I'm leaving it up for now. If someone of the news crew wants to take it down, that's fine with me...

True, but in general we don't expect that much from a TPB cover. In essence they have released the story already. They're usually just rehashes of covers already existing.

Let's ignore the fact that the text at the bottom is the same font as the Star Wars logo, shall we?

It's photoshopped.

Fake fake fake

The Star Wars font at the bottom gives it away, this can't be a sanctioned logo. The 'v' shape does not match the 't' and 'f' in the actual logo, something that has already been established and should not be tampered with to maintain proper branding. This version never appears on the many other items that we have seen surface so I would venture to guess it is just a place holder until the actual cover surfaces.

In conclusion, it is an imposter! More then meets the eye if you will.

If you look closely at where the T and F meet (At the very top of the logo) you can actually see the seam between them. It looks like it was blurred over, so it would be hard to notice.

EDIT: Not to mention, the T is noticably darker than the F.

It's photoshopped.
Art submitted does not have to be the actual coverart. But could be an early version. A work in progress. At that stage, they're all photoshops, in a manner of speaking.

That definately looks like a metal band designed the logo.

Geez, even if it IS official, they could've put some effort into it at least. Darkening the F or brightening the T, making sure that no one sees he seam between them, and some non Star Wars font, preferably something similar to the movie logo font, would've gone a long way towards making it seem the least bit real.
