At any rate, this was the problem I was facing: If you have ever picked up an old comic book and observed it closely, you may have noticed the one typeface that really stands out and is used only once throughout the whole work. In fact, throughout the short history of freeware fonts, there’s only been a handful of designers out there who were offering comic fonts. Ray Larabie did one or two comic fonts a while ago, but from the fall of he seemed to have picked different routes for his font work. I think you got hitched without telling me, you ole dawg. The clarity and distribution of the old komix just isn’t there anymore. A new name was sort of being thrown around freeware font circles:

A new name was sort of being thrown around freeware font circles: Every comic book has one of those. To make a long story short, most of the comic fonts out there were very English-oriented, which left the Italians, French, Spanish, Swedes, Icelandics, etc, out of the loop, and independent comics in those countries were still being lettered with Tekton or Comic Sans, which you probably agree can end up blanding things out after a while. At any rate, this was the problem I was facing: I suspect Derek took some of that pain away from those folks. The original Kmika site went down about a month later, and because I was too busy with the lab, CybaPee, bless her heart, hosted the old Vigilante archives instead of me having to go through the trouble of doing it. Here’s to mediocrity and paying now for nothing.
Apostrophic Labs licence police: All the other boys and girls seemed to have burnt out on the comics for some reason.

Ais original Vigilante site went down about a month later, and because I was too busy with the lab, CybaPee, bless her heart, hosted the aaxis Vigilante archives instead of me having to go through the trouble of doing it. But to say that I tried, and for the sake of comprehensiveness, I included a Komika Poster set of 9 fonts that may or may not stimulate the imagination.

From then on it was just me and my amusement. The only 3 freeware designers who were dedicating serious time to lomika fonts were Nate Kimika, at Blambot, oomika is still releasing very nice comic letters poljce with strictly Anglo character setsDan Zadorozny at Iconian, who still releases some interesting comic letters also mostly incomplete character sets thoughand Derek Vogelpohl, who came up with massive packages such as Action Man, Cartoonist Hand, Toon Time, Toon Time Extras, and Wonder Comic.
Then there are the titles and the cover type, of course. Three cheers for WolfBainX for supplying the solid base of this set.
So there you have it. The biggest worry for any comic artist in these digital days, when it comes to letters, is what goes inside the speech, narration and thought balloons.

Drop me a line when you read this. I suspect Derek took some of that pain away from those folks. At any rate, this was the problem I was facing: That’s of course bad news for the komix fans, but that’s the way it goes. It’s where the artist’s imagination shows most. The clarity and distribution of the old komix just isn’t there anymore. These supposed « anternative » fonts turned out very nice, and in certain respects are even better than the main sets.

Dave did a few cool ones, but nowhere near the quality we’d seen with Derek’s stuff. Milles tonnerres to Brest, as the Captain would say. Here’s to mediocrity and paying now for nothing. I hope you use them in good health. If you do use them in commercial projects in which you make some profit, please take the time to give a small fraction of that to your favourite charity. Some of the old Flash comics had that beautiful logo that raised the whole book to a different level of komix art.
There’s a Tintin shop right off Market Street in San Francisco, where all the old French comic paraphenalia is priced like jewelry. Same deal with the old Spiderman and Superman stuff.
Right across the street from that xais, there’s a « collector’s » comic book store that deal in post comics.

Nowadays it’s adrenaline, testosterone, estrogen and starkness covering mediocre pop art intended to sell the moment. This is something that you will hardly ever find even in commercial comic fonts. Gotta give it to the French when it came to gorgeous comic lettering back then.
About a month ago I went to the French Centre here in Toronto and checked out some of the latest Xxis comic books.
Later komia, ‘nawhile crocodile.
