Comic Papyrus, A Complete Font Designed as a Mashup of Papyrus and Comic Sans Now Available for Download

Comic Papyrus illustrated

Graphic designer Ben Harman combined the two generally loathed typefaces Papyrus and Comic Sans into the font Comic Papyrus. We previously featured this concept from Barth and Co, but Harman has made the complete font, including a special character set, available for purchase for $5.00 at Creative Market.

Your two most favoritest fonts ever have FINALLY been smooshed together typographically, just as Darwin intended. Cross-bred. Cross-awesomified.

So stop wasting hours switching back and forth between your two old favorites, and just use your new favorite instead. Comic Papyrus combines the timeless rustic qualities from centuries past with the hilarious fun-loving wit of today’s funny pages. It’ll make you laugh (like a joke) and cry (like a mummy). Simultaneously!

Diaper-Clad Slow Loris Performs an Adorable Pole-Dancing Routine

Earlier this month, a tiny domesticated slow loris named Sara performed an adorable pole-dancing routine while clad in a yellow floral diaper at her home in Perm, Russia. Sara’s human Irina Goncharova, an Internet celebrity in Russia, had previously taught the petite primate how to balance on a pole and spin herself around.

At some point later on, Sara and Goncharova enjoyed a few quiet moments snuggling each other.

A Look at the Differences Between the Animated ‘Akira’ Film and the Manga

Michael Truly and Casey Redmon of CineFix recently teamed up with Tom Pinchuk of AnimeVice to take a look at the differences between the animated Akira film and the manga by Katsuhiro Otomo. The biggest difference is that the film was completed before the manga, so there’s actually a whole mess of content not present in the 1988 adaptation.

Manga artist Katsuhiro Otomo started writing and drawing Akira in 1982 in WEEKLY YOUNG MAGAZINE. By 1988, he was directing the feature film adaptation – – two years before he’d actually finished the series itself! As such, Akira the anime and Akira the manga exist as unique companion pieces; not only because they’re both products of the same creator, but also because the movie is effectively an incomplete preview for the much larger saga Otomo eventually got to finish telling in print.
