Comic Serif Pro is another fun font – it’s a slab serif font useful for headlines and other creative treaments – including comic books.
I actually found out about the font from my ever-awesome fellow FOSS artist pal Ryan Lerch, who showed me a comic mockup he’d made using it. I contacted the creator, Hannes von Döhren, who very graciously not only agreed to relicense the font under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license, he also similarly licensed the rest of his impressive set of free fonts under CC-BY-3.0. (If you enjoy them, please consider giving Hannes a PayPal contribution on his site or consider purchasing from his collection of beautiful non-free fonts to show your appreciation.)
