KLEIN LETTERING ARCHIVES

From beginning freelance work in the fall of 1977 through the end of 2016 I've lettered 66,788 pages of comics, as well as 5,346 covers and designed 1,061 logos. These are approximate numbers, but as accurate as I can get them, and represent everything listed on this page, if my math is right. And that doesn't count all the other miscellaneous work listed here as OTHER STUFF (including house ads and newspaper strip lettering), or the many things I did on staff at DC from 1977 to 1987 (which rarely involved lettering entire covers or pages, but might have occasionally).

Below are lots of tedious-to-read lists of the work I've done as a freelancer, with at least one image on most pages. In the first five years or so (and occasionally later) my records are sometimes incomplete. Those items are listed in the INCOMPLETE RECORDS ARCHIVE. From 1977-1980 I listed work in the year it was published, or by cover date. Around June, 1980 I started listing it in the year the work was completed and billed, so 1980 entries are larger than usual. For more information on most of these books, I recommend The Grand Comics Database, HERE. A great resource. These items are added to the total work done numbers given above.

Only the very first lettering job was in a 1977 cover-dated book: "Star Bores" a Star Wars parody in SICK Magazine #118, December 1977, for which I was hired by the artist, Dave Manak. Thanks, Dave! Note that, while on staff at DC from 1977 to 1987 I wasn't supposed to be lettering for other comics companies, but was allowed to work for magazines like HEAVY METAL and SICK, as they weren't considered competition by DC. A few exceptions were made, with permission.

My writing for comics is discussed in detail in the WRITING section of this website (click the tab at the top to get there), but where I lettered a story I wrote (which is most of them), I note it here.

Some long stories and graphic novels, particularly from 1998 on, were often worked on in more than one year. I usually list them in the year they were begun or finished to avoid multiple listings.

Items below in BLACK are not yet indexed. A missing item means there wasn't any such work.
