Superhero™ font family

Designed by  Lloyd Springer
Superhero was developed to simulate the handwritten comic book text found in old Marvel comics. The rough versions were developed to allow for text set at larger point sizes, for example on the cover of a comic book, or on a poster.Because comic book text works best when set in uppercase, and because we believe that most Superhero text will therefore be set in all caps, the x-height of the brackets, hyphens and quotation marks have been adjusted to appear most pleasingly balanced with the uppercase characters. Even Comic Book characters need to burp, fart, gasp and hiccup. The traditional way for a comic artist to indicate that Superman or Charlie Brown was making a non-vocal sound through a body orifice, was to surround the word (which described that sound) with a special set of quotation marks. The balloons in the Superhero Balloons are positioned in characters slots which we believe will make it easiest for you to quickly access the type of balloon you are looking for. . In the PC version of this font family the style names are slightly different from those used in the Mac versions. But the fonts are otherwise identical.
