My Bio
I’m Haas, I work as a comic book letterer and graphic designer. My goal is to bring a unique outlook to the field of comics lettering, blending old-school techniques and practices with new technology. My mission is to reinvigorate the field of digital lettering which is oftentimes cold and sterile.
My lettering has been featured in the pages of FemForce (AC Comics) as well as other independent comics. My print design work can be seen in Education Software Design’s marketing material.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!!

Nifty Handwriting Back in the day when I slung hash, I came across this order. I was really impressed by neatness and clarity of the letterforms. I later found out this person was an architect which examines the superb penmanship. A Comic Cover with testosterone This is what a cover should look like. This is Targitt #1, by the late Dick Giordano  published by Atlas Comics. I discovered this gem while doing some back issue diving a few weeks back and I was immediately ready to read this bad boy. Right away you're intrigued and concerned for our hero. He's surrounded by a group of thugs with no possible way out. Now you're force to find out

A Next Logos.

A Next Logos.

Here's the cover to A Next #12 from Marvel. What I like about this cover are the character logos, the designs are simple and straight to the point. This is who they are, and you have a sense of their personalities. Also the homage to the classic Avengers logo on the bottom right is a nice touch. Later deviants, Haas

Dig that Lettering. Display by lettering by Artie

Okay people it's time to drool at some sweet cover copy and display lettering from Fantastic Four 51 done by Artie Simek. Here's another technique that has been abandon by modern comics, which needs to make it's come back like yesterday.  Sometimes all you need is some cover copy to attract the eye and draw the reader in.
