To be honest, the hatred for Comic Sans annoys me more than the font itself - it's not a bad font; it's just what they usually use in comic books. In fact, when I write by hand it looks a lot like Comic Sans.

I don't like the look of Comic Sans either. I prefer Courier, and stuff. Also Comic Sans is used more in Internet comics whereas DC and Marvel comics use something more like MV Boli. Also It annoys me when people use comic sans in memes, it just shouldn't happen.

How can you hate a font that's so fantastic?
(just watch how you kern it...)
(slanted is the new italic...)

Oh man that video I love it.
The examining bored once told my collage to put its handouts and briefs in comic sans as it was "friendly and less intimidating", as I was on a design corse luckily it all stayed in Helvetica ^^. I'm such a massive font nerd I almost got a Nokia Lumia because of its nice typography >.<

Neonmoo's top 5 fonts!
1. Helvetica Neue
2. Futura LT
3. Gill Sans Light
4. Century Gothic
5. Frutiger
