THE LETTERER OF THE DAY IS…DC HOPKINS

COMIC BOOK YETI: DC, thank you for joining me here in the Yeti Cave. If you have any other jobs other than lettering, what is it you do?


Trve Kvlt, issue #1, Wilson/Kangas/Contreras/Hopkins

DC HOPKINS: No other jobs! Unless you count stay-at-home dad as a job, in which case I do that at the same time :)


CBY: Yeah, that’s definitely full-time job too. What are the comics that influenced you and made you want to work in comics?


DC: I was never really interested in making comics growing up, even though they were a presence in my life as far back as I can remember. Once I started realizing I had an interest in lettering and design, the main titles that made me take note of their unique lettering were HELLBOY (Clem Robins), TALE OF SAND (Deron Bennett), INVINCIBLE (Rus Wooton), and TURF (John Workman).


CBY: What do you enjoy most about lettering?
