Maybe.  or maybe they just wanted a clean break.  Or a marketing firm came up with it.

I'm actually amazed how much better the purple DOES make it. But yeah overall I'm indifferent. I'll miss the old one.

Don't like. Font doesn't match the pic. Wings overly huge and no detail.

Does the new logo mean we are no longer spelling "Dragon*Con" with an asterisk...?

Blegh- not too impressed with it.
:(

They should have had a contest and have the fans/members comes up with a logo.  Could have been cool!

I prefer D*C; as in D*CF I will continue to use it until I receive a cease and desist!  ;D

In ten years they'll change it again and then we'll complain about how this one was so much better :)

The old company was bought out by a new one about 12 months ago. And as a result, they dropped the *

And they've been asking constantly for people to drop the * ever since.

Exactly.  It looks like they're trying to change it to look more like a "badge" or "shoulder patch" than a decorative piece of art.  It looks like something that should stamped out of metal rather than printed on a page.

The first thing I thought was that it looked kinda "space police"-y.

I also agree that the wings are too large and the head is too small.  And it looks like they copied the head silhouette from a generic Chinese menu.
