As long has there been comic books, there has been comic book typography styles. With the rise of computerized graphics, comic book fonts came and stormed the design industry. That is because a comic book font isn’t useful only for comics but many other kinds of designing as well.
In this post, you get 40 full of impact fonts. Of course, these fonts are designed for comic books but you can use them anywhere, including headings, posters and logos.
Do not that these fonts are not highly readable. So they can never be ideal for large amount of text, even if you are creating a comic book themed website or journal. Readability is the first thing you must look for when you are selecting a font for a large chunk of text.
Oh, and before I forget.
