Comico is an informal handwriting font. Its letterforms are all-caps, and these appear as if they had been written with a slight left-lean. The design has the name Comico, of course, because its letters look very much like the style of lettering used in comic books. Comico’s character set is quite large, and it includes almost 1,000 special glyphs – these are ligatures and alternate versions of letters. Comico’s significant variety of extras will be automatically substituted into any text where the OpenType ‘contextual alternates’ feature has been applied. Indeed, the use of this feature is especially recommended for Comico (it is is for all glyph-rich fonts like it), since having multiple versions of each letter in a text make it more likely to appear handwritten. Most of the counterforms in Comico’s letters are large, and all of the letters’ minute details is drawn with straight lines. While the font is intended for use at natural handwriting sizes, if it is used very big, text set with Comico will actually appear pixelated. Comico is the work of Frode Helland, a type designer from Norway.
