New ABC show kinda using old Vertigo logo?

I saw this ad on Facebook; the whole thing didn't fit in the window, so I couldn't get a shot of all of it. I couldn't help but think of this:



When I saw this:



It's not exactly the same, but it's really close. Or maybe I'm nuts. I thought it was interesting, anyway.

So that show is a mix between Independence Day and V For Vendetta? That's fucking awesome.

The old super cheesy "V" show from the 80's had the same splotchy V as its logo.

I'm probably dating myself, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the VERTIGO label was the TV show "V", not the other way around.

V is coming back? Awesome, call me cheesy but I liked this show!!

Heh, that V predates Vertigo's V by 20 years. This is a remake. I can't wait.

That's because you're a wee child, born 3yrs after the original "V" miniseries had been aired.

V = born in 1984
You = born in 1987

I am old and my body reminds me periodically. However, I did watch "V" - it had its moments.

It'll be interesting to see the new show. If it's rebooted as successfully as "Doctor Who" or "Battlestar Gallactica" were, then it'll be a hit (same with the new "Star Trek" movie). But if it's done cheesy, well... we always have "Vertigo" to enjoy.

I may have been born after it came out, but I still knew what it was prior to there being a remake.

Apparently so!

Does that make U2 the Coldplay of graphic design?

The new V doesn't have as much passion as the old V, they should just drop V and go with an experimental Arabic character that no one knows.

While they're at it, can they make it look like they did in 87?

Hey! V wasn't a kid's show, it was a show for sophisticated adults!
