    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.
