    When Google introduced Chrome in late 2008 they called on respected cartoonist Scott McCloud to create an online comic book to explain it. Along with helpful insight about the new browser and the ideas behind it, the comic features McCloud’s trademark lettering which was digitized by comic book experts Comicraft. The family of four fonts not only gets heavier as you move from Regular to Extra Bold, but also larger, a typical trait of comic book lettering — shouting should be BIGGER!

    McCloud’s fonts are a clear, readable, approachable, authentic option for comic book typography (or indeed other kinds of handwriting) when custom lettering isn’t possible. There’s no excuse to fill your speech balloons with Comic Sans.
