Greetings, People of the Internet
Since you like the comic and/or charts and/or typos, some things to keep in mind:
I’ll be at New York Comic Con in Artist Alley This Weekend
Remember, me! Shirts! Prints! Pins! Stickers! High-fives! Hawk! NYCC Artist Alley! SEE YOU THIS WEEKEND!
Our table is Artist Alley P-10, listed under “Ross Nover” or “Rosscott”. If you come by the table and say the magic word (“kerning”) you get a free sticker or pin while supplies last. Free things, just for coming by the table and remembering a word! Can’t beat that with a stick. Unless you have a stick. In which case I guess you could.
Some notes on the comic:
So I did actually find a list of common types of typos. I have no idea how official this list is, but it looked official enough. I had no idea there were so many formal ways of doing things wrong.
UPDATE: If you like this one, this is not the first comic about typos. Check out these two “Great Moments in Typo History”. (1) (2)
Also, thanks to Systemics Marty “Fn” Day and Rachel “Design Valkyrie” Mooney for chatting online and sharing their typo-related thoughts. Also for being bad typists, it helped.
ANOTHER UPDATE: No new comic for Friday, I’m pretty busy with New York Comic Con prep. See you at the con, and see the rest of you Monday!
