Description Technical Specs
It's another beautiful day in scenic Astro City, home of post modern gods and ordinary mortals alike. Look into the sky and perhaps you'll get a glimpse of everyone's favorite man of the hour, if not the man of tomorrow... SAMARITAN!

Relocated to Vertigo Comics in 2013, the ASTRO CITY series continues to tell the stories of people like you and me living in a world of super heroes like Winged Victory, Jack in the Box, the Honor Guard and Samaritan. In honor of the relaunch, Comicraft's JG Roshell has taken the original fifties style Astro City font apart, remastered it, expanded the international character set and given it a whole new secret identity – Samaritan. Everything old is new again.

Pax Purists -- the SAMARITAN fonts come with our First Family of ASTRO CITY fonts, as published alongside the Image ASTRO CITY title in 1995.
  • Four fonts (Regular, Italic, Bold & Bold Italic) with alternate uppercase characters. Includes Western European international characters.

There's a reason this is the most popular font. December 26, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Canada  
Clear and readable, pleasant to look at. The font isn't too "sketchy," and it's not so mechanical that it looks unhappy. At smaller fonts, like typical word balloons, it looks fantastic.

However, it does look a little awkward when it's expanded to sound-effect sizes. But this is not something that should be used as a sound effect.

I absolutely recommend it.

If I have to give any criticism, it's that bold-italic words don't 'stretch" as much as they do on some other fonts, and thus, don't stand out as much.
