Lettering. The overlooked art of making sure nobody notices.

Face it, lettering is NOT as easy as you think it is. 

Just one little thing off, one balloon out of place, and it won't matter if you're Da Vinci, it'll throw the reader out of your story... hard.

So how to do it so no one notices?

Nate Piekos has figured it out and made tutorials.  Go find them at Blambot.com.  He's been putting the best lettering advice in the industry on his site for free for the better part of a decade, and it's a damn shame when a good comic is ruined 'cause the creator didn't know any better.  Now you have no excuse.  :D

Happy comic-ing!
