View Full Version : Favorite Comicraft fonts
12-20-2006, 08:11 PM
As the Comicraft font banner has reminded me, it's almost time for the annual Comicraft sale. Every year, I try to grab another 3 or 4 fonts, so what's your favorite Comicraft font?
My personal favorites (right now) are Ladronn, Monologous and Battlecry.
Thanks to the subscription, it's getting harder and harder to find ones I don't have.

I used Hush Hush on Zombie Highway as the main dialogue font.
I used Wild Words on Loaded as the main dialogue font.
I've used the Tim Sale Brush font on various projects for a rougher dialogue font.
My favorites though: Hush Hush and Battlecry.
I own the $399.00 Comicrazy font, but rarely use it (since you only get one set of caps, so you can't have a variation between your LL's MM's SS's TT's etc...)
Mostly I've been using my own fonts lately, but I buy one (sometimes two) new Comicraft fonts every year.

The Battle fonts...BattleCry, BattleDamaged, BattleScarred.
Of course you probably have most of the same ones I do because of the subscription. ;)

I'm probably going to pick up the DaveGibbons font pack. Been waiting all year to snag it and see what it's like. It'll be my first ComiCraft font, hopefully first of many.

How much is the subscription? I looked all over their site and couldn't find the option.

The past two years it's been $129 for the year. I think they only put it up once a year. To see what that 130 bucks got me this year click here (http://www.comicbookfonts.com/fonts/index.html?sid=0001fTlgMMLKBngqg47q0G1). When you consider what they would have cost buying them one at a time...and that I use several of them frequently and a couple I use on occasion with only two not being used (yet)...it's a heck of a deal.
And the upcoming New Years font sale is, of course, a great time to pick up stuff you don't already have. I'll probably try to pick 3 or 4 from back before I had the subscription...most likely something from the display or SFX categories. Maybe some of the "old ones" like ClobberinTime or AllTogetherOoky. Hard to choose.
I really like CC fonts, but I rarely use them because most of my fonts are my own or Blambot's, and I'm starting to get snobby about making sure my font sets match. However, I like CC Spills a lot and recently saw the wet one (forget the name) used so well it WILL be mine come Jan 1.
And yeah, the subscription is probably a mandatory thing for anyone who likes CC or uses them a lot. Get it early and often.

The first subscription covered April 2005-March 2006. Then there was one offered in January 2006 and another offered in April 2007. $129 for 12 months worth of font is a no-brainer to me. They promise to release at least one font a year and that comes to a little more than $10 per font. Even if you only like and use 2 fonts a year, you come out ahead. Over that last 2 years, I've used every font at least once, except (Phat Boi).

And they released FOUR fonts in October, as I recall. Good deal.
I'm still partial to HedgeBackwards, one of my favorite fonts of all time. The ASTRO CITY font was overused for quite a long time, but seems to have scaled back quite a bit by the smaller indy publishers in favor of the free Blambot choices.
My other favorite is MONOLOGOUS, just because it looks so darn much like Tom Orzechowski's classic style.
I used the Hedge Backwards and the Jeff Campbell Sketchbook fonts for the banner on my website, which I just redesigned: http://www.variousandsundry.com

My money is pretty tight now but i was thinking of MONOLOGOUS, Dave Gibbons, & Adam kubert

Could it be Splashdown? I think that's the one you're talking about.

Be sure to buy the subscription, it's the single best buy that I've made every year
01-01-2007, 06:11 PM

I picked up the subscription again this year. I got some great fonts on it in 2006, so I'm looking forward to what might show up in 2007.
I also picked up the Astronauts in Trouble font, just because I like Unca Lar.
