Word balloons should be round!

David King, creator of Danny Dutch, has a nice little set of lettering dos and don’ts up on his blog right now. Some are fairly subtle, and even if you don’t make comics, it’s interesting to see the hidden rules of word balloons (“Word Balloons Do Not Exist In Our Dimension”) made explicit. King winds it up with a few examples of really sweet lettering from a variety of sources.
