These are some posters I would definitely hang in my office and not just because I’m a sucker for anything that has to do with DC comics. I just think that it is really cool that these posters were made using only one kind of typeface. It looks like one of those things that looks easy to make but it is probably very complicated to do. What is cool about them is that each typeface goes with the character’s style. Batman always serious and straight forward and a san serif is exactly that. The Flash is always unpredictable and all over the place and the handwriting typeface depicts just that. And a Serif just seems to go with Superman.

The designer made lots of posters for other characters as well (even Marvel Comics) which I will link to here –

Which of the posters do you think is most successful? Or do you think they all are?
