Legendary letterer Gaspar Saladino passed away yesterday
following a long illness (his age is believed to be somewhere in the 88 or 90
range). Although he worked for a variety
of publishers during his lengthy career, for well over five decades he was a
staple of DC Comics responsible for so many of their iconic font designs.
Gaspar designed hundreds of logos for the company and as time permitted, also
worked on interiors particularly on Swamp Thing with Len Wein and Bernie
Wrightson. The Catacombs extends its sincerest condolences to his family,
friends and fans.
