Letterer Jim Novak has died

More sad news in the world of comics, as it’s been reported that legendary letterer Jim Novak passed  away earlier this year.  Fellow letterer Pat Brosseau revealed via Twitter that while Novak died this past April, it was not publicly known until this week.

Novak worked primarily with Marvel, lettering such titles as Captain America, Star Wars, and Elektra: Assassin, and fellow letterer Bill Oakley once stated that he had the best word balloons in the business.

Here’s but a sampling of the work he left behind.
