The Word Balloon

By | Sunday, February 08, 2009 1 comment
I've lauded the iconography of the word balloon here before, but letterer Nate Piekos recently came up with this lexicon of comic book lettering and ballooning. I expect a lot of it will just be verbalizing what you already know from having read comics for years, and have intuitively understood, but I bet there's something new there for most people.

Wow, this is incredibly useful, thanks for posting this! You wouldn't happen to have come across anything like this for character motion short hand would you? Like wavy marks for nervous shaking and the little smoke puff with motion lines for a character moving quickly and sweat drops for surprise? I'd love to see a compendium of those.
