Comic Sans was originally designed by Vincent Connare for Microsoft® Corp. based on lettering from comic magazines. It has a friendly, casual appearance and is extremely readable on screen at small and large sizes. Comic Sans Pro features two brand new fonts (Italic & Bold Italic) and an extensive range of OpenType® features and enhancements. The new weights and features were developed by Terrance Weinzierl.
