GOSH Kali, tell us how you REALLY feel!
If you’ve joined the Wavemen Newsletter, you’ve already heard the latest news about my other project. After a ton of work, our team is nearing completion of the final scene and I’m about to start lettering the final inks. Before I can start on that work, however, a font needs to be chosen! It may seem like a minor detail, but lettering and font choice can have a big impact on readability and enjoyment of a comic.
Two things Cory and I were looking for in a font:
- Easy to read both on screen and on paper, even when the words are small
- Personality and character in the letters that fits with the tone of the story
Cory and I have been looking at dozens of options and finally narrowed our choices down to four favorites. We thought we’d see what you all thought before we made the final choice!
Here’s the four fonts we’re considering, on their own:
And here’s each of those fonts in some panels from the comic:
Which font is your favorite? Is there any font you dislike? Why do you like or dislike a particular font? Cory and I would love to hear your thoughts! If you’re the shy type, we’ve also set up a poll where you can vote for your favorite.
Thanks for your input! We’re really excited to be moving into the final stages of this debut issue of Wavemen!
