Evolution of the Batman Logo
Batman has been with us for 70 years now and over his life span has undergone many makeovers in many forms of media. In print from Bob Kane's original drawings to Jim Lee's tight pencils; in live action from Adam West's campy rendition, to the dark Christopher Nolan interpretation. When a new artist inherits this iconic characther they put their own touches on him; including the logo on his chest.
