There are just three titles in this article that didn’t have enough material to make separate entries. The one above was a three issue miniseries for which Gaspar Saladino did different logo lettering on each issue and all the cover lettering. The Marvel-style text is surely the work of writer Len Wein.
Another blurb at the bottom of this cover with over-the-top text meant to grab readers, and it did.
Another fun blurb on this cover, and my favorite of the logo versions.
This series was based on a science fiction TV show of the time and ran 18 issues, many with Saladino cover lettering. The single letter title made for difficult cover layouts, but Gaspar did well with his cover lettering here.
Gaspar would use nearly rectangular balloons like this one occasionally, when the words fit best that way, or just to add interest.
Sometimes stretching open letters horizontally and vertically in the same blurb made it more interesting.
Sometimes just emphasizing one word was the best idea.
Here variety in size and style gives the caption more appeal.
When he needed to fill an odd shape, Gaspar always rose to the occasion with a creative solution.
This one-shot was a sampler of then current features from the DC Comics Vertigo imprint, and unusually, contained all new material. Gaspar lettered the Hellblazer story.
To sum up, these covers have Saladino lettering:
THE UNTOLD LEGEND OF THE BATMAN: 1-3
V: 1-2, 7, 9, 11-13, 15-18
That’s 14 in all. The story above was 13 pages. Other articles in this series and more you might like are on the COMICS CREATION page of my blog.
