Gaspar Saladino

One of the joys of this year's San Diego Comic-Con International was sitting in on Mark Evanier's panel with letterer extraordinaire, Todd Klein. Todd talked about a lot of his favorite letterers over the years, but the master, was Gaspar Saladino. I don't think I really noticed Gaspar's work until Swamp Thing came out, but most of the astonishing covers on this site are lettered by the brilliant Mr. Saladino.

I'm not going to say much more about Gaspar, but "Robby Reed," the creator of the Dial B for Blog website, has a lot he would like to say, in an amazingly detailed tribute to Mr. Saladino. The fun begins right here!
