I like the new font! I'm also glad you got a new thread started - I was tempted to fire one up this morning as incentive for you, but figured you should have the opportunity. Great stuff and I appreciate you sharing your talent and humor with us!!

New font is a huge improvement. It's easily readable and fits in just fine.

I'm was considering using the crappy-looking "Calvin" font just for Steve talking, but three lines of dialogue takes up four lines of the other font:



Thoughts?

The new and improved Drink-Man characters are quite phallic.

I think for the everyday funtional alcoholic, use the same font as the rest of the strip -for those occasions when our beloved Drink-Man is having serious issues with his sobriety/inebreation, such as this example, the change in font somehow works.

Long Live Drink-Man !!!

Mark me down as preferring the Calvin font...not a fan of this one at all. Makes it lose a little bit of its charm.

I prefer the new font. Far easier to read.

You should do a color strip every Sunday or something

I like the new font better. Perhaps if you reduced it by one point, it would take up less panel space.

Oh, and our current president is opposed to bodacious boobies. You're thinking of the previous one.

I tried that. It starts looking pixely if I set it any less than 14.

I really need a font that is about the style of the one I'm using now, but doesn't take up as much width.

The font's fine. Not perfect, but fine. The strips, on the other hand, are damn near perfect, and that's enough for me. Keep it up, Infidel.

Great thread title, and much better font, although I agree that the Calvin font may be useful on occasion.

Thanks as always for the free entertainment in these trying economic times.
