Hey
(a) this is a comic, so Comic Sans MS is quasi required
(b) this thread is about making SMBC worse.

What's the font Zach uses?

My objection is that the comic you made is equally funny to the original.

The font Zach uses is one cobbled out of his own handwriting.

He draws each letter by hand*.

(I know that sounds like a sarcastic answer, and I've been guilty of those too, but this one is genuine.)

* The beneath-the-comic text is Arial, I think.

For the record, that's called "writing".

Pffft, and I suppose when I critique each one of Zach's hand-crafted letters for style and artistic merit on my blog that doesn't exist which I then show to all my imaginary friends who laugh at me behind my back and secretly arrange to meet up places where they know I'll find out about it and that I wasn't invited and when I challenge them on it they get all passive-aggressive and try and make like it's my fault for always wearing that hat but I can't help it if I like things they don't and anyway what's wrong with that hat, that's called "reading".

Good call, fella.

I'm sorry crayon, but I can't say that I liked the second i you used in the word imaginary there. It was terrible.

I actually like this one. It's definitely a lot less funny.

Your second comic fails by being funny.

Unfortunatley not, I've lost them in the mass of links where I pressed 'random'. :roll:
