Urban Barbarian Font! by urban-barbarian

Yup.  I got Font'd!  By Richard Starkings and John Roshell of Comic Craft no less!  I've always been a fan of the art of lettering.  It's one of the things that I loved about Walt Simonson and Howard Chaykin's work.  They always worked closely with their letterer to give their comic books unique looks. 

So when I got the opportunity to illustrate the John Tiffany book I wanted to make sure the lettering reflected the mood of the story properly.  Comic Craft stepped in and developed a font based on my mad scribblings!  The first one, "Dan Panosian" I used a classic ink pen and for the "Urban Barbarian" I used a brush.  They took the samples and designed and awesome pair of fonts!  Check it out here on their website! and specifically at this link to purchase it!

You can also pick up the French version of John Tiffany on Amazon France!

Beautiful AND cool stuff sir! My first ever job in comics was as a letterer, so I love this stuff too! And yes- Tiffany in English?

Congrats! They're good looking fonts.

Will the John Tiffany book be released in English, as well?
