I spoke to Gaspar Saladino today and he told me he enjoyed the articles about his first DC lettering. He confirmed that this story, the first one in ROMANCE TRAIL #5 was his earliest DC job, it seemed familiar to him, and he thought my research was correct and well done. Needless to say, I’m pleased and relieved. Now, if anyone out there could get Gaspar’s earliest credits updated on the Grand Comics Database and his Wikipedia entry, that would be swell.
ADDED: Thanks to Ralf Haring for updating the GCD to include the information in my blog posts. Much appreciated!
