Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in like four days but I'm out of town and I only just now managed to steal someone else's wireless. I'll be home later today though so comics will be posted regularly now.

So anyway all this time has let me do some great work on the next few comics, and I've gotten a bunch of new ideas. So that's good. Enjoy!

Oh yeah! And tell me what you guys think about my handwriting vs. type. I still can't decide which I want to do. So input would be awesome! thanks.

I din't really notice the use of type. Is that font is MS Reference Special? I think I use that font for speech.

Also, I love the penguins!

The last pose of the penguin is awesome.

Fontwise I would recommend switching to a more cartoony or script one. Blambot and DaFont have plenty of those, for example this one:
www.dafont.com/splats-unsplatted.font?nb_ppp=50

I was always pretty content with my rather boring script and when I changed to a comicy one, the old one suddenly looked very shitty.
Hand-drawn script is of course king, but also a lot of work. I would go with a cool, unique font.

@ ralph: penguins are the shit! I've been wanting to incorporate them for a while but couldn't figure out a funny enough setup...but this one is great, just wait for the next comic :) and I can't remember what the font is called but it's the default in gimp. Gimp doesn't have very many good fonts.

@ effigy power: that font is pretty much EXACTLY what I want. thank you. I might have to start using that. and I really want to keep my handwritten script, bc I love my handwriting, but ya, it's a pain in the ass to do.

This one is great! I would stick with some sort of type. Type is more universal when it comes to easy reading ability.

And I bet those suits have to be tailor made too.
