      Hi everyone,

      As i discussed on the call this evening, i’ve handled the Comic Book School branding for about 5 years. One of the main fonts i use for Comic Book School is called Alley Oop.

      It’s a 100% free font and can be found here: https://www.dafont.com/alley-oop.font

      I don’t see a place to attach files. I can make the Comic Book School logo available to whoever needs it. Please feel free to reach out at anytime via social media or email at: gsdesign@live.com

      Thanks!

      I also wanted this “Resources” section to be a place where we can collect important info that could be helpful to the group. If this sort of thing would work better elsewhere, i’m open to suggestions. Thanks!

      Thanks for sharing the resources, Grant. When you create a template, people can find it here.

      If you’re looking for a great resource/site on making comics, particularly lettering, check out https://blambot.com/ There are free comic book fonts on there as well and Nate is totally supportive of Indie creators using the free fonts without licenses. There are other great tips too, like page layout and terminology for beginners.

      If you’ve ever seen a font that you enjoy but aren’t certain of its name, there’s a website for that called “fontsquirrel.com – They go by the font matcherator! It’s pretty cool too and mostly accurate.

      Check it out: https://www.fontsquirrel.com/

      Here is a link to an article and video about Kurt Vonnegut’s masters thesis on “story shapes”. While not specifically about comics, it applies to all stories in any medium. Personally, I find it more specific and helpful than the traditional Fretag triangle, and—at the very least-it will give you a new perspective on plot and storytelling.

      Also, if you’re new to Vonnegut, watch the video. The man is (was, today is the anniversary of his death) hilarious.

      Some great insight from Seinfeld, Larry David, and Jason Alexander about writing a capper, that should be relevant to s the 8 page challenge. Also, from a comics perspective, it gives great insight into the way different artists collaborate to make something great, in this case two writers and an actor, but the lessons could apply to writer/artist/inker/letterer as well.

      Here’s an Inside Look to how one of the most iconic scenes in TV history came together 🙌
