Cover Ups | Chip Kidd - The Moment Blog -

Cover Ups | Chip Kidd - The Moment Blog - "You’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but that advice sometimes goes out the window at a comic book store. With racks and racks of new issues, a great cover is sometimes the best way to hook a new reader. And when you want your book to pop out, who better to turn to than the esteemed graphic designer Chip Kidd?

Kidd, a longtime comics fan, has designed several logos and cover treatments for DC Comics, and he’s working on a Batman story that will be published next year. He’s also participating in a panel discussion called “Comics: From Every Angle” at the Bryant Park Reading Room today at 12:45. The Moment caught up with him to talk about his DC Comics work and other items of comic-book geekdom."
