Mailbag: Consistency in lettering changes?
If you have a question for the Mailbag, please feel free to use the Question? button at the top of the site.
Q. I’ve been doing my comic for a little over a year now, and during that time I’ve changed my font once, the font size a couple of times, and most recently… I’ve decided to go to ALL CAPS for the dialog.
I want to go back through and redo all the dialog and corresponding word balloons, so they still fit the changed text. The reason for this is to have a consistent look for an eventual print product.
Since the comics have been on the web for months, should I also change the copies that are on the web? Should I do it as soon as I’ve completed the update to the files or would it be better to wait? Is there a good reason to keep the “as is”?
I’ve gotten better at balloon placement/creation during the course of my comic, so there are some earlier comics that are pretty “meh” to downright dreadful in terms of word balloons.
