Ten Free Comic-Inspired Fonts

If you haven’t noticed by now (hope it was nice and dry under that rock), I am a lover of comic books and webcomics a like. I don’t think there’s ever been a day when I haven’t spent a least a few moments laughing because of something I’ve read online or off. I love them.
