Jack "John" Morelli (born 26 October 1962; age 61) is an extremely well known and respected comic book letterer. He began working for Marvel Comics in early 1981, with two issues in the Star Trek series, #14 "We are Dying, Egypt, Dying!" and #15 "The Quality of Mercy", being among his first issues ever worked on. He lettered the first issue of the Marvel Comics Deep Space Nine line, "Judgment Day".

While with Marvel, he worked heavily on the Captain America and Daredevil series.

His work is so respected and admired, that artists such as John Byrne now use a computer font based on his work to letter comics. [1]
