Howdy buckaroos! Today’s article is about Free Fonts that you can use for your own comics. If you use a font created by someone else and plan to use it in a published work, check the font’s licensing arrangement. Some fonts require a licensing fee. Even if you can download a font for free, that does not mean there isn’t a licensing fee attached to it.
