Another of these huge hardcover books has arrived, covering THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD issues 110-156 .I knew I must have worked on something inside, and looking at my Lettering Archives, I see it was only issue #153. This was a team-up between Batman and Red Tornado written by Cary Burkett with art by Don Newton and Bob Smith. I did letter some later issues of the title, but that’s the only one in this book. Very generous of DC to send me two copies!

Also in is this trade paperback featuring The Penguin. It includes my lettering on DETECTIVE COMICS #611, and BATMAN #548-549. Nice cover by Jason Pearson.

Hardly a week passes when I don’t receive at least one reprint collection containing some of my lettering. After forty years of working for DC, I guess that’s not surprising. You may well wonder what happens to all those books, and the answer is, many of them end up on eBay. If you’re interested in following my auctions, here’s a LINK.

In addition to selling new arrivals, I sell older items from my shelves as I gradually reduce what I’ve saved. I’m not getting any younger, and if I don’t think I’m likely to read something again, it goes up on eBay at some point. Sorry for the commercial, but I thought some of you might like to know.
