Issue 22: Pioneering the digital landscape, font development, Astro City, and Elephantmen with John Roshell

Eva talks to legendary comic book letterer John Roshell. John has worked with DC and Marvel on comics in the past and was involved in defining the modern process for lettering in comics. John talks about how he got into lettering and the kind of tools he’s used over the years, including some discussion on Quark Express, Fontographer, Glyphs and Adobe products such as Illustrator. There’s some talk of great letters and techniques — and we learn what drives him creatively.
