    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    I've done some testing in InDesign using Eurostile Bold and find that to match the top line, if I set it at 25 point, tracking 25, vertically 110%, horizontally 70% and selective kerning in two or three places -- I have an almost perfect match.

    That looks pretty good! I can get it close, but I’m being anal. I think I need the Microgramma that is just bold - not extended. Also, I’m doing mine in black and white. I own the original art for the cover and am making replacement “stats”.

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    Not having Microgramma Bold (No Extended) I have used my Eurostile Bold (No extended). I have only “touched” the first line, it’s squished at 69% and with a thin stroke to make it a little bolder. Not exact exact but…
  8. Looking for help identifying this script font found on a t-shirt, thanks!

    Yeah, this seems to be a tough one. Nevertheless, Kevin, I'll try out that Desire font. Thanks a bunch for the suggestion & for replying!

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    You need to use the extended version and squish it a lot horizontally. That’s why the stroke widths are kind of terrible. You will also have to add the corner rounding manually and adjust the kerning. As mentioned before, this is almost certainly phototypesetting and no digital font will exactly match that.

    Not finding a match either. Desire might be a decent substitute.

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    So I’ve been using Microgramma Bold Ext in Illustrator, and no matter how I tweak it, I can’t get it to match the cover. Still seems like the wrong font.

    ANSWERED Font Found on LOGO jOY while making logo

    Anand, it looks like you got the right answer over at WhatTheFont, but for anyone else who is interested, Polya correctly identified it as Gaoel.

    Segmented type appreciation corner

    Fascinated by segmented typography – not quite vectors, not quite pixels – designer/typographer/writer Marcin Wichary made an interactive typing playground showcasing both real world and experimental designs.
  15. Can anyone identify this font or near match? Has two widths, though the most condensed is seen more frequently and is primarily what we're looking for. References attached below.
  16. Saw this online, but can't seem to find a match anywhere. Looking for the actual font used, or even a very similar one. Free or commercial; doesn't matter. Thanks. Original: Straightened with background removed:
  17. Riccardo Sartori

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    Exactly. I don’t think it either. This is most probably achieved via phototypesetting.
  18. Hi, I think I've been looking everywhere. I hope you can help me. I'm looking for whatever version you can find. Commercial fonts are fine too though I thinkn I've somehow downloaded it as a free font. It looks like a care free handwriting :)
  19. Rindcorp

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    Well, I guess it's the same font, just squished somehow. Didn't think the typesetting machine was capable of that...
  20. Rindcorp

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    Ok. The "ALL NEW" "4 COMPLETE STORIES" does not appear to be either Microgramma or Eurostile. Any other ideas??

    ANSWERED Font Found on LOGO jOY while making logo

    Perhaps Gotham Bold with the edges rounded over (not rounded enough to be Gotham Rounded)?
  22. Rindcorp

    ANSWERED 1970’s-1980’s DC Comics Font

    I spoke to a professional comic book letterer. He told me these fonts were created by a Vari-Typer machine (if anyone knows what that is). Looks like some form of Microgramma to me too. Thanks for the feedback!
