1942 - 1942
Number of Issues:
A large shield with a solid top third (usually blue) with the words "Timely Comics" and vertical stripes on the bottom two-thirds with "Inc." in a solid rectangle superimposed on the vertical stripe area. This exact logo appears only once on the exterior of an actual Timely-era comic, although it appeared on interior pages such as house ads more frequently. Some similar single-use exterior logos exist as well. This is the logo (with red vertical stripes instead of blue) that is used most often in modern reprintings and references to the Timely brand.
