Boondocks typeface

I was reminded in another forum by tanie_05 of something I ought to have done a bit sooner. Late last week I went hunting for a font either identical to or resembling the lettering used in the Boondocks comic strip and in the end credits of the show. I searched on appropriate terms at dafont.com but got nothing, so I decided to trawl the Comic theme section of that site. Two pages in I found 'Comics', which is identical to the Boondocks font. I don't know why the font isn't named more accurately. The zipfile doesn't contain a readme that tells anything about the font, and the font properties as shown in Windows font viewer are no more revealing. Even so, it looks like the real deal. I hope folks looking to make Boondocks icons and other imagery will find the font useful.

hey hey true believers! (ha who am i referrencing).

sorry there hasnt been any icons from me in awhile. i took a long break from the internet. also it's hard to create things when your mind is elsewhere.

starting in june i plan on having weekly theme icon contests. so if any of you have any ideas for themes. please feel free to throw them out there.

also goodluck to everyone currently taking finals. and congrats to those of you who are graduating. stay tuned for more.
