If You Need Fonts, New Year’s Day Is The Day
(The following is NOT a sponsored message, it is simply something that many many cartoonists look forward to each year)
Have you noticed that the font in my comics doesn’t look like the font in any other comics? I got my font from Comicraft’s “annual never-to-be-repeated New Year’s Day font sale” a few years ago, and that sale is here once again. On New Year’s Day(starting in the very first time zone to ring in the new year, so some time New Year’s Eve for you), all Comicraft fonts, ALL of them including the $19 ones, are $20.13. To give you some idea of how great this sale is, my font NORMALLY costs US$89(or $69 for the non-international version). If you want a font as unique as your comic, check out Comicraft’s annual font sale, and be sure to get the international font because it’ll be the same price either way.

And just to show how impartial I am, I also recommend Blambot.com, which has tons of great free fonts and around-US$20 fonts every day. If you need international lettering, be sure to check for that when choosing a font, since they don’t all have ñ and such. Click on “fonts” at the top of the page, but also check the Bargains box on the home page if you plan on buying one of his fonts. Fair warning: everybody uses these fonts, so it won’t look as unique(especially Anime Ace), but what’s most important is readability and looking natural in a comic, and Blambot fonts fit the need.
And remember: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T USE COMIC SANS!
