When one thinks of comic books, they often immediately think of word balloons. Letterers are the the people who transfer the comic book script to the comic book page and handle the layout of those word balloons. Notable letterers include: Chris Eliopoulos, Todd Klein, Richard Starkings and Nate Piekos.
Comic book art is drawn in black and white, and then the colorist steps in to provide color based on the artists feedback and direction. Radically altered in how coloring is completed with the advent of computers, it's clear to see how this field has grown in recent years, as evidenced by our example by Ben Templesmith from the pages of Choker. Notable colorists include Dave Stewart, Laura Martin, Lee Loughridge and many others.
Often teased as tracers, Inkers provide line definition and other refinement of the artists pencils. By looking at the difference in art between an inker like Joe Sinnott compared with Vince Colletta on Jack Kirby pencils, you can see what a difference an inker can make.
