    Well, I know I’m not responsible, but I DID say I prefer multi-panels, and Story Arcs….just WHO/WHAT is she?

    Dear C&S Readers,

    You might not be many in number, but you are superior in intellect. So I have a question for you. It’s about my new character Blythe. She speaks with a strange accent, and I’m trying to show that by using an odd fount. How is that working out for you? Can you read what she is saying?

    Thanks Ed O

    I like it Ed. Makes me think maybe she’s from the Old Country. I was thinking maybe she’s a Gypsy! ;)

    Hey Ed,

    You’re a brave soul asking the audience what they want… ha! jk… I do the same. 1 reader or 1 million readers still constitutes an audience.

    The change in font is a great idea, but should be executed properly. I once thought of using a different style of lettering for each character… to depict a different voice, but I never went there. Since I handwrite everything, I find that chore enough… let alone remain consistent character to character. I just like to use slang, ala Capp… right Eldo Disc Golf?

    Anyway, back to your strip… sorry. I like that you are using a different font for Cousin Blythe. The one you’ve chosen may be a little hard to read, but that doesn’t bother me. Helps me concentrate on what I’m reading. I imagine her having a low creepy sounding voice. Chilling, ghostly. Maybe there is a font in your programs that has more of that look and feel to it, as opposed to the whispy (sp) one you’re using now. Either way… I get it, and have no problem with it. I like the creepy beotch.

    ^^^Yes, I like slang, inventing my own language, etc.

    Blythe’s lettering is a TAD hard to read, but it’s legible. It is certainly denoting affected speech, i.e. an accent.

    The thing is, since it looks, well, lyrical, not nec. icky or scary, intrinsically…it doesn’t come across as “dark”, or “foreboding”, so, if that’s the intention, it could be more “Goth”.

    I hope that helps!

    I find it hard to read–but I can zoom so it works.

    It’s a bit creepy how she just appears out on the range like that….
