Hello guys what do you think about these 3 options ? You like one? You like none of them?

I highly doubt someone would see that logo, realizing comic shops have been named everything in the book (Bizzarro Wuxtry for ex) and say "aw they probly just got witch books in that place".

I've been in advertising for 20 + years. Drop those logos. The name is fine. The logo needs to be a comic long box with "The Comic Stock" on the side of the box.

Comic stock is a horrible name.

Think this with your store name done with a black Sharpie type font.

bland, no energy, no excitement, which is the opposite of comics.

It's an upgrade. If he want's excitement he should name it the "Beaver Pit".

To be fair, where was the uproar comparing Pantera to the band, I thought that was the best...

If he doesn't trademark it someone else would... which only means it's liked, but perhaps not unique..

I had an idea of opening the first slabbed only store. Maybe have it sponsored by CGC. Carry only key issues, say 500-1,000 slabs. Take raw trades for cash or credit that I will in turn have graded and stocked on the shelves.

I've been doing logos for 40 years.  Comic cauldron is the best.

when i hear Pantera comics....

i think of the band a little, but since it is "comics" i think hard driven....

i'd rather get "hard driven comics" than "horror comics"

i get horror comics but that is too specific....

A good indicator of logo strength is would it look good on a T shirt.  Is it something that people would want to wear who dont care what the product is.

i'd rather sell the attitude of a pantera animal instinct 

than a cackling cauldren....

unless holloween is a slow time of year, other days it would be out of style

Why don't you tell Chuck that. And Cauldron Comics sounds like a place to get Halloween decorations at deep discounts.

Youre right chucky does do his round kicks with ball of foot.  But I dont see how a store name with the word "comics" would equate to "decorations".
