Comicraft’s New Year’s Day Sale
If you want to build out your comics-font library, be sure to mark this on your calendar. Comicraft traditionally holds a sale on Jan 1 every year in which price of each of their fonts is based on the year. This New Year’s Day every ComiCraft font will be $20.23 apiece.
That’s a huge savings on their high-quality lettering fonts. WildWords (which I use) is $129 the rest of the year. WildWords upper/lower is usually $69. ComicCrazy is originally $395. And Yadda Yadda Yadda is typically $129. If you’re planning to purchase fonts for lettering or sound effects — or display fonts for logos and titles — you’ll want to mark this date on your calendar and load up.

A note for Clip Studio Paint users
Comicraft fonts offer crossbar-I technology — which automatically substitutes a serif-I whenever the personal pronoun is used. (For more information about the crossbar-I rule, click here.) However, as I warned Webcomics.com subscribers at the beginning of 2020, this relies on OpenType font features — which Clip Studio Paint (as of now) does not support.
