Comic Neue

Designer Craig Rozynski decided that hating Comic Sans wasn’t enough — he wanted to do something about it, too. So he set about reinterpreting the core promise of Comic Sans — a typeface that is distinctly casual and widely accessible — and created Comic Neue, a new typeface that “aspires to be the casual script choice for everyone including the typographically savvy.”

Comic Neue

It’s a worthy effort for sure, and I acknowledge that it is an improvement over its inspiration. But we’re talking about degrees of nausea here; Comic Neue makes me less queasy, but it still makes me queasy.

You might feel differently, of course. If you like it, Rozynski has generously made Comic Neue free to download.
