“Comic Sans wasn’t designed to be the world’s most ubiquitous casual typeface1. Comic Neue aspires to be the casual script choice for everyone including the typographically savvy.
The squashed, wonky, and weird glyphs of Comic Sans have been beaten into shape while maintaining the honesty that made Comic Sans so popular.
It’s perfect as a display face, for marking up comments, and writing passive aggressive office memos.”
To use Comic Neue, simply install the TrueType files on your system. To use in your online projects EOT and WOFF files are also included, and a font.css file with @font-face rules makes implementation a copy and paste away. Comic Neue is also available on the super-fast jsDeliver CDN. No attribution is required, this free version of Comic Neue has been released into the public domain.
Update 09.04.2014: Comic Neue has just been updated featuring improved kerning for all oblique versions. See version 1.1 below. An expanded glyph set including support for European characters is on its way, to receive updates follow @craigrozynski on Twitter.
