Hey, FontFilter! It's FONT-SPOTTIN' TIME!

A friend is wondering if I could identify the title and dialogue fonts on this comic page. "Of course!" I said. "I am a gentleman and a scholar!" Now he thinks I'm the bees knees, but of course I have no idea what these fonts actually are. And if I don't impress him mightily, he'll never ask me to the Homecoming Dance! What are these fonts? And should I DTMFA?

Have you tried identifont? Or WhatTheFont?

Looks like an italicized or otherwise tweaked Serpentine in the title font.

Dialogue looks like Blambot Pro Lite.

Here's Blambot's site.

I agree, titles look like Serpentine Bold Oblique to me.

Yep, the title font is definitely Serpentine Italic or Serpentine Bold Italic (it's hard to tell the weight of the font).

I was going to say the balloon font was one of the Graphite fonts, but now that I look at it, Graphite is similar but not quite (the lower-case f and lower-case g look slightly different). So I'm not totally sure what the balloon font is...

Dang—I missed the Blambot reference when I previewed. Sure looks like it, instead of Graphite!

Offhand, do you know what comic that is? It looks worth reading :-)

I'd like to see the conclusion to this as well.

I don't know for sure, but the new Atom comic from DC features a physicist and has a guy named Teddy in it, so it's probably that.

Following up again: apparently it's ZERO G from Image/Top Cow.
