In addition to the general credit formatting rules, the following apply specifically to the letters field.

  • Required for Comic Story or Cover sequences, Optional on all other types of sequences
  • The standard phrase used for any machine lettering is "typeset", unless credited differently (i.e. Charlton's "A. Machine"). Lettering studios may also be noted. Use of a Leroy lettering guide, a type of machine lettering, is sometimes entered as "typeset (Leroy lettering)".
  • Creators and studios will be listed individually.
  • The creators of a series logo should be noted in the letters field of the cover sequence of the first issue featuring this logo, as "creator name (series logo)".
  • Examples:
* John Workman (credited) 
* typeset
* Richard Starkings and Comicraft's Dave Lanphear would be listed as "Richard Starkings; Comicraft; Dave Lanphear" and NOT as
"Richard Starkings; ? [as Comicraft]; Dave Lanphear".
