Jack Morelli at Kids Comic Con 2011
October 26, 1962
Jack Morelli (born October 26, 1962) is a comic book letterer and author, also credited under the name John Morelli. He has designed many comic book logos. His lettering is notable for being the basis for the computer font used by John Byrne when he letters his own work.
Morelli was a staff letterer at Marvel during the 1980s, where he was known by the affectionate nickname "Squid" (because he had once worked on a fishing boat).
In 2007, Morelli and Mark Chiarello authored Heroes of the Negro Leagues, published by Abrams, Inc., a book about the history of Negro league baseball. It was named the second best sports book of 2007 by Amazon.com.
