Tom Spurgeon, the Comics Reporter:
|“||Rosen's work managed to combine a certain hushed quality with routine clarity and even, one could say, a muscularity achieved through the crowded precision of the kerning He enabled Miller's unique voice in a way that was quite unique, and the work would have been slightly but I think perceptibly different without him||”|
Rick Parker, long-time letterer:
|“||Those of us who worked in comics at the time all considered Joe Rosen the consummate professional His work was about as perfect as something can be which was done entirely by hand It seemed to me the man lived to work When he wasn’t lettering he was on the subway to and from the office picking up and delivering work He had a great humanistic style that never called undo attention to itself or distracted from the storytelling aspect His "voice" as a letterer was always smooth and he mainlined the dialogue directly into the mind of the reader He was a man of few words, a modest man who was good at what he did and was highly regarded and respected by all who knew him and his work||”|
