  • Use and data entry in the Feature Logo Field is optional.
  • The Feature Logo Field is to be used for any sequence that is a part of a feature, excluding covers.
  • The Feature Logo Field will record exactly the spelling of the Feature name as it appears in a Logo.
  • Feature names generally are uniform and remain the same issue after issue. Logos can be changed. For example, a Peanuts feature may have a logo that reads Peanuts Featuring Good Ol' Charlie Brown. So Feature remains Peanuts, while the Feature Logo Field will be recorded as Peanuts Featuring Good Ol' Charlie Brown.

Examples: Feature: Dr. Strange, Logo: Doctor Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts! Feature: Batman, Logo: Bat-Man

  • Unique logo styles can be recorded too.

Example: Feature: Superman, Logo: Superman [rounded U] Feature: Superman, Logo: Superman [wider letters] Feature: Superman, Logo: Superman [angled U]

  • This rule does not apply to Cover logos.
  • Once the Feature Logo has been created, scans of logos can be uploaded to the database. This function works the same as adding covers or indicia images. See the Covers_FAQ and Adding_Covers.
  • Generic feature logos are also an option for storing feature logos. A generic feature logo is to store the text under which a feature is presented in a story, no matter how the feature text is visualized.
