After more than a year I continue the successful series of alternative fonts of classics. A generally hated typeface is Comic Sans, mostly because of it’s misuse. There are even hate/love blogs about this font ( and they try to raise money for a documentary.

The font was designed Vincent Connare in 1995 and most designers wouldn’t touch the font in a professional work, but with sometimes we need something similar.
