Five Free Fonts For Friday – Comic Book Edition

By Jessica Otte, March 21, 2014

There are tons of free fonts that you can download on the internet. With so many too choose from, it can become very daunting. Below are five cool fonts for you download for the use in your next comic book design. Don’t write/design comic books? They are still great fonts to use for kid’s birthday parties (superhero theme) or even promotional flyers or play bills.

 

Avengeance Mightiest Avenger

ZAP! This is an all uppercase font and is very ease to read. You can make the first letter in a sentence a slightly larger font to distinguish upper and lowercase letters. It is not a very exaggerated font, so it is nice for headings. Download

Fish Fingers

This is a very unique and quirky font that I have yet to come across anything like it. This font can be used to write the storyline of a comic. Since it does not scream comic book, it would even make a good font for a company logo. BAM!  Download

KG Happy

KABOOM! This font is great to use on the title of a comic book. It is fun, but not in your face. This font is one of the only “comic book fonts” that come in both upper and lowercase letter. It also comes with two other fonts in the family. One without the shadow and inversed. Download

Badaboom BB

This one is more on the traditional side for comic book style fonts. It is the perfect font for your word in the action bubbles. This font unfortunately does not contain very many special characters. POW! Download

Shlop

SPLAT! This font makes you think of something slimy. I love fonts that can express a certain feeling just by the design. When writing in this font, you know something gross or grimy is happening. Download
