MediBang seems to have promise, and the price is right.

I've been playing around with Clip Studio Paint and I think it MIGHT work for panel borders and dialog after all. I'm currently working on legit (no naughty bits, just SCIENCE) prospective project using it. I'll probably try to keep the 'look' of current series, but the next Shiny New Thing I try may use CSP and/or MBP and look a lot more professional.

Kinda like the undergound comix vibe of my hand-drawn wonky lettering, though. Gotta think on it.

I know some artists have turned their hand drawn lettering into a font, but that seems like a fairly major project. Dunno if Blambot is still around, but they had an amazing selection of fonts specifically aimed at comic artists. I think half the webcomics and some of DC & Marvel's stuff still uses their fonts, like Ale & Wenches

EDIT: but you probably know that, anyway

I've actually got a friend who did that for his work. I've got a bunch of Blambot's fonts — I even bought a few for legit freelance jobs. I think my buddy basically just had to pay for the service and fill out a form with all of his hand-drawn letters — the company he went with did the rest of the work.

Why does Jennifer Zero have a 1 tattoo instead of a 0 tattoo?
Or to put it another way,
Why is the Jennifer with the 1 tattoo Jennifer Zero instead of Jennifer One?
Jennifer means “torch bearer” and is cognate with Guinevere.
Are each of the Jennifers “carrying a torch” (of unrequited love) for somebody?
A different somebody for each Jennifer, or the same somebody for all of them?
Can they sing a torch song (or some torch songs) about it?
If this had been a different comic you might have featured the romance-lives of the Jennifers.
They’d probably have been just as stacked, just as naked, and at least almost as horny; but maybe we wouldn’t get to see them bang until the end.
But, ten Jennifers? Ten endings!

Now I want to do the next Space Patrol Arcturus story all about the Jennifers.
She's got a "0" — the negative space in the middle of the computer-font "0" looks kinda like a "1."

Oh! ... sorry!

You can keep your "hand lettering" vibe when using Clip Studio Paint! Using your past lettering a TTF glyph font can be created that contains multiple variants of each letter, along with the right kerning hints for each one. It's a process ( like anything else ) but worth it. I also have some "hand letter" fonts I use that are very effective.

Look up "Hot August Night" "Restless Soul" and "Almost Cartoon" as examples of fonts I've used in webcomic drawings....

Now that you’ve told me that, I can’t see it any other way!
Of COURSE it’s a zero with a weirdly-shaped hollow! Not a one!
Maybe if I’d done a better job of comparing it to some of the other Jennifers’ tattoos I’d have figured it out without bothering you!
If you make a comic about the love lives of the Jennifers I’m going to want to read it!
