Type Foundry: MicrosoftThe Comic Sans ™ Font Family is a typeface based on the lettering from comic books and magazines. Comic Sans was originally designed by Vincent Connare to imitate comic book lettering and is a casual but legible typeface that can be used for informal documents. Comic Sans has proved very popular with a wide variety of people. Although the Comic Sans ™ Font Family might be seen as a novelty typeface, which is great for titles, it's also extremely readable on-screen at small sizes, making it a versatile text face. Comic Sans fonts are available in both Opentype (.otf) and TrueType (.ttf) font formats.
