I personally prefer digital strip or anime ace, in that order. ^^

Digital strip looks like a nice one to find and have for later, but I've got this weird aversion to anime ace personally (though I have it anyway since I go on font-downloading sprees).. not sure where it came from. :XD:

*picks Comic Book Commando*

Funny you should happen to have this poll at this timing. Because just today, this deviation [link] was posted, commenting on the use of computer lettering and such.

Thanks for the feedback. I *think* after I finish my match with Kira I'll go back to colour comics and use CBC and the speech bubble style I did in No More Accidents.. maybe. o.o It was a very easy style for me and I liked it.

I wish I could write my text by hand, but my writing's so messy.. ('life in 4 months' is the neatest I've ever written text by hand so far) ;-; I envy those pros.

I picked 'Comic Book Commando,' but I also thought 'Dirty Finger' was good - I'd like it better if it was smaller though?

Fair enough, thanks for the input - darnit, I never get text the right size. Usually I'm always trying to make sure my font's not too small. XD

NOT talking about the bubble style, which is different through these pages; ONLY the font! Speech bubbles depend on the style I'm illustrating in, and I'm not so indecisive about them.

Honestly, for comics and illustrations I'm a bit more inclined to use upper-case fonts for the main dialogue, like Comic Book Commando and Damn Noisy Kids.. however, I decided to give a different font a go (Dirty Finger) for the sake of experimentation. I don't entirely like anime ace, despite its popularity, so I will probably never settle for it.
And in case it wasn't clear, I always use different fonts for dialogue and thoughts (the latter I like using a font called "Dan's Hand" for :D ).. this is for any main, spoken dialogue.

I might still experiment, but I suppose I'm curious as to what everyone else likes when they read a comic.
