View Full Version : 1950's Sci-Fi font?
04-23-2007, 02:55 PM
I'm working on a Sci-Fi/Sci-fact comic book with my buddy Max and he's drawing it very 1950's Ray guns and Space Monsters style. I want to letter it in a complementary style. Any suggestions?

10 Cents Comic font (pay font)
or Spectre Verde font (freebie)
12 ton Goldfish (that style of sfx lettering has ALWAYS been around)(freebie)
and Sucker Punch (pay font).
Many, many more you could add, but those are a good starting point.
Very nice choices. And if you want a slightly lighter font then 10-Cent, try Zap Raygun...but 10-Cent is my choice too.
For SFX, Badaboom OF COURSE.
ALSO! Swing by ICONIAN.COM and check out some of his olderstuff...QUARTERMAIN comes to mind...it's great for that era.

I went to Iconian and saw a few there of interest, although most looked like title fonts.
Comicbook commando, International Superhero, Masked Marvel, Quartermain and Toon Town Industrial all looked like they had potential as 1950s style (but I could be wrong). I'll give them a spin tonight and see how they stack up.
I really did like 10cent and Zap Raygun2, too.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
Anybody else want to chime in?

I'm REALLY liking Zap Raygun2 for this. 10cent looks more 1940s to me. Does anyone think that ZR2 would work online too? The first part of this project will see print, but the latter part will likely be online.
It'll work fine, just make sure you make it large enough.
