COMIC BOOK YETI: Justin, thank you so much for joining me here in the Yeti Cave! If you have any other jobs other than lettering, what is it you do?
JUSTIN BIRCH: I’m beyond lucky enough to say that lettering is my full time job. So I’m going to take this time to say I’m also an avid toy and comic collector. That counts as a full time job, right?
CBY: Oh yeah, that counts. What are the comics that influenced you and made you want to work in comics?
JB: I’m not sure if there’s been one single comic or story that made me say, “That’s it! I want to make comics!” For me, it was an overall love of the medium, the characters, etc. I’m a child of the late 80’s/early 90’s, the Saturday morning cartoons really shaped a lot of what I love in life and were a perfect bridge to comics.
CBY: What do you enjoy most about lettering?
