I've got a couple of slides that I would like to present with comic-book style fonts and formatting (just the words, not pictures).

Any good template/font resources for this?

Anime Ace is a great comic-style font. Also, Badaboom for sound effects (if you need that for some reason :P).

Here's a downloadable TrueType Font file of the classic comic book font. Note that comic books never use lowercase letters, just uppercase letters that are little smaller.

Here are some instructions on how to install the font after you download it.

Pick up any Marvel comic today or for the last ten years, they use lowercase a lot. –  random Sep 22 '09 at 3:10

Blambot Comic Fonts by Nate Piekos features nothing but fonts for comics and has been used in various titles.

The fonts are broken down into two licenses:

  • Free fonts are for any independent comics use, or non-commercial use (includes non-profit)
  • Pay fonts have extra characters and features. For professional, commercial uses

A majority of the fonts are uppercase only. But if you've ever read a Marvel comic in the last decade you'll see some that have lowercase as well.

If you have the budget for it, checkout the powerhouse that is Comicraft.com –  random Sep 22 '09 at 3:12

There are quite a few fonts available at 1001fonts.com and a few other similar sites that have a comic book feel to them.

As far as templates, there are some community resources around that offer presentation templates that have been created by users. Do a web search for "Keynote Themes" or "Presentation Themes" and you'll find quite a few options to pick from.

If you want a comic book look though, Comic Life may be something to look into if you are planning on doing a comic book style regularly.
