I use programs anyway, hand lettering in comic book font is much harder than illustrating the panels.
And there are fewer ppl who learn to do so these days,
as everyone uses software.
Hand lettering looks nice, and hand drawn boxes/panels,
But It takes forever.
I like comic format but not so much the simple look and exaggerated style.
I remember The Hobbit illustrated version like a comic book, but had wonderful watercolour art with rich detail.
I plan to do more art like this.
