Turns out Comic Sans was developed at Microsoft using two of the biggest selling comic books of the late 1980s: The Dark Knight Returns (lettered by John Constanza) and Watchmen (lettered by Dave Gibbons). Here’s the Urban Legend Revealed.

Todd Klein, who designed some of the best logos at DC Comics (Camelot 3000, sigh) and lettered thousands of pages, discussed the font on his website.
