I can't remember the name of the comic book letterer who designed it, but I thought is was a logo specifically created for v.4.

I am brain damaged....can't remember.

I think I originally asked in the GJ forums a few years back, I could ask again there.

I'm actually looking around for it too, just so we can use it for the Green Lantern Podcast.

These trade dresses are all custom typography. I've located several PDF files from DC and extracted them to see how it's all structured. I've got vector graphics of the main GL and GLC logos if you guys need them.

you typically convert to outlines before going to press on a piece like that so you don't need to send fonts and risking them respacing/reflowing, there isn't much custom work in them once you see the font.

I'm aware of that process, but considered we've seen very limited instances of that face across the GL titles, I'd still bet the alphabet is customized.
