I'd say 'Flow' is the cream of the crop, here. Good on the eyes, easy to read, and I'd imagine it's also very easy to bend into all manner of speech bubble shapes.

I actually did use a make-your-own-fonts program at one point. In fact, this comic used a custom font until Ram Lama took over the art: http://rasputincatamite.com/archive/ugly-alex-gets-startled/
Unfortunately, my alignment sucked eggs, I need dyslexic-friendly fonts, and it was way too much work. I also I'm kinda over using Witzworx. The style of the comic is changing, so this is the right time to change fonts.

The fonts I picked here (with the exception of London which I nixed already) are generally pretty readable. I also had to test them to make sure that my dyslexia wasn't going to be an issue -- which is why I typically like Comic Sans and Witzwork.

Really, I am looking for something very specific and at this point I have way too much work to reinvent the wheel. But, I appreciate the advice nonetheless.

dpat57 and Old Herb.
Thank you!

The wheel: reinvented it must be.

I am not a Jedi! I'm just a comic artist. I can't handle that kind of responsibility!!! *Cries Inconsolably*

Neucha gets my vote. What a damn sexy font it is.
