SAMARITAN TALL

July 14, 2013

Fifteen hundred years from now, a man will be selected to go back in time to prevent a catastrophic event which turned his world into a dystopia. Sent back in time, he was enveloped in empyrean fire, the strands of energy that make up time itself. Crash-landing near Astro City in late 1985, he learned how to master and channel the empyrean forces that had suffused his body -- finally learning to control his powers in time to prevent the destruction of the Space Shuttle Challenger, the event he had been sent to avert. He described himself to journalists as nothing more than "a Good Samaritan", and has continued to help his fellow man in Astro City ever since. John JG Roshell has also been struggling with the empyrean challenge of fitting all of Kurt Busiek's Astro City dialogue into balloons with the regular Samaritan font, so he created the Samaritan Tall font to help his fellow comic book letterers! It's kinda the same thing really.

SAMARITANtitle>

July 14, 2013

It's another beautiful day in scenic Astro City, home of post modern gods and ordinary mortals alike. Look into the sky and perhaps you'll get a glimpse of everyone's favorite man of the hour, if not the man of tomorrow... SAMARITAN! Relocated to Vertigo Comics in 2013, the ASTRO CITY series continues to tell the stories of people like you and me living in a world of super heroes like Winged Victory, Jack in the Box, the Honor Guard and Samaritan. In honor of the relaunch, Comicraft's JG Roshell has taken the original fifties style Astro City font apart, remastered it, expanded the international character set and given it a whole new secret identity Samaritan. Everything old is new again. Pax Purists -- the SAMARITAN fonts come with our First Family of ASTRO CITY fonts, as published alongside the Image ASTRO CITY title in 1995.

GHOST TOWN

July 2, 2013

The Gold Rush is over, the prospectors have made their fortune and the mine has been worked out! The inhabitants of Boomtown USA have moved on -- the saloon is dry, the sheriff has hung his hat and the only visitors to the local whorehouse are tumbleweeds. Yeah, the buildings remain -- hollowed out husks carrying memories of bar room brawls, high noon shootouts and high stake poker games between outlaws -- but if you take a walk down the street be careful not to kick up too much dust... Turn the corner and you might see Ol' Toothless Joe standing on the corner sucking on a bottle of whiskey... And don't walk too slowly past the storefront of the undertaker -- that guy made his living putting strangers like you in a wooden overcoat from sunrise to sundown. Spooks and Spectres linger everywhere... there's a sign just down the road -- didn't you see it? "Ghost Town! Abandon Hope all who Enter Here!"

MEGA CITY

February 15, 2013

If your computer infrastructure is already Dredd-fully overcrowded with fonts, this set won't help you any. Like any self respecting city-state, virtual or otherwise, MEGA CITY will cover pretty much the entire Eastern motherboard of your computer, providing a veritable urban sprawl of faces to populate your matrix. Secure, welcoming and utilitarian, MEGA CITY is perfect for massive tower block lettering or ultra wide-lane MegaFreeway signage. Mega citizens may feel that this font set makes hyperreality fonts seem unreal in comparison -- and 800 million people can't be wrong!
