Just heard that Todd Klein is going to be lettering 1602, which made me very happy indeed. It would be difficult to quantify how much of what made Sandman special was Todd going the extra mile on creating lettering styles for characters -- everything from Delirium's wiggly style to Dream's white-on-black, upper and lower case, wavy-bordered style added to character. But more than that, Todd is simply a consummate professional who made me look good for years, and I'm relieved he'll be doing it again. You don't notice good lettering, you notice bad lettering. Todd is someone who doesn't get noticed (except when they hand out the awards).
