Lettering is the process and art of adding words to the comic book page. It is usually the final step in creating a comic book. The letterer does not come up with the words, unless they are also the writer of the book, but they are often responsible for a lot of key decisions in how the book will read. The letterer is responsible for designing anything from word balloons to sound effects and title cards.
