Eva Webb is a comics and genre historian, focusing on the weird and the interesting. Presently serving her sixth term as the dually elected antifascist nerd queen of Twitter. She's the host of Titular Characters but she can also be found on the Nerdfect Strangers Podcast.
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. Bio: John Roshell has lettered comic books for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse & Blizzard, designed the logos for Avengers, Daredevil, Black Panther & Angry Birds, and created hundreds of font families which have been used to letter millions of comic book pages, as well as appeared in video games, movies and TV shows, toy packages, t-shirts and even toilet paper. He is the co-author of "Comic Book Lettering the Comicraft Way" with Comicraft co-founder Richard Starkings, and last year founded Swell Type to manage the ever-expanding Comicraft font library and release fun, friendly, functional fonts inspired by his home state of California.
