Countdown comic, Issues 1 & 2
4 Comments on “Countdown comic, Issues 1 & 2”
I see more fonts on the cover of Issue 2: There’s something that’s either Futura or (my guess) Twentieth Century; there are multiple Stephenson Blake grotesques, as befitting a British publication of the time period (No. 9 and Condensed No.7, perhaps); and a bit of what looks like Placard.
Right you are! Added.
Trying to figure out what they’re using for the article text. It looks like Akzidenz Grotesk regular and bold, but I can’t be sure at this size.
The text typeface, at least the one seen in the second to last image, is Monotype Grotesque – the G is a good indicator. Image #5 has text in Times New Roman. There’s also Gill Sans, for the speech balloons in image #4 and elsewhere. In sum, an omnium-gatherum that is pretty typical for a British magazine from this period. I’m sure one could find even more typefaces in the images. We tend to credit only those that are clearly visible, though.
