Neil Gaiman's site is one of my favorites, and his blog is the only one I check daily.
Alan Moore doesn't have a website, in fact he doesn't use the internet at all. Here's a site set up by a fan with a good deal of info, though.
Bill Willingham's site, and a site devoted to discussing Fables and related projects.
Home site for artist Michael Wm. Kaluta, with some great art.
Here's a site devoted to Don Rosa and his work.
A site devoted to Alex Ross and his art.
Here's the new site for artist J.H. Williams III:
Some comic book fonts sites, if you're looking to buy, or learn more.
COMPANIES that I do lettering and other work for:
DC Comics, my main employer for the last 30 years.
Marvel Comics, the other big company.
RudeDude Productions, home of Nexus and other Steve Rude projects.
Top Shelf, the company I'm now working for on Alan Moore projects.
Dark Horse Comics, who I occasionally work for on Neil Gaiman projects.
Some comics news sites I visit regularly to see what's happening.
Two of the programs I use most often for computer lettering are made by Adobe, Illustrator and Photoshop, both part of the Creative Suite. I also use Adobe Acrobat to create online proofs and samples. And I used Dreamweaver, now owned by Adobe, to create much of this site. I use their page layout program InDesign as well.
For font creation I use Fontlab, though Fontographer, the program I used for many years previously, is also now owned and sold by the same company.
For page layout, when I'm not using InDesign, I use Quark, still the standard at many companies. If possible, I recommend sticking with InDesign, though, as it's more intuitive and well integrated with other Adobe products.

My wife Ellen is still as beautiful as the day we met. I'd swear to it! She does get a little help these days from the Mary Kay Cosmetics she sells part-time. Here's a link to her Mary Kay site.
My good friend Tim Walker has a nice site devoted to educational toys, one of which he has recreated and sells. If you enjoy old toys, you'll enjoy taking a look.
Every year I attend Comicon International in San Diego, the largest comics and media convention in the U.S., and one of the largest in the world. Learn more here.
I first met Thom Zahler when he was lettering comics for DC and others. Thom now has his own art studio, self-publishes comics he writes and draws, an also designs websites. He gave me some advice for this one, so check out his site when you have a chance.
I've been a member of the New Jersey Audubon Society since 1986, and a regular volunteer since 1990, helping out in their Cape May Bird Observatory, and twice a year helping to lead field trips. If you're interested in birds and nature, you might want to visit their site. If you like reading about nature I can highly recommend the books of Pete Dunne, the director of the Cape May Bird Observatory.
