Designed by John Roshell and Richard Starkings, Richard Starkings is a comic and hand display font family. This typeface has four styles and was published by Comicraft.

A NEW HOPE! You begged with us..! You pleaded with us..! But we decided to release the official Richard Starkings font anyway! Huh? WHAT? You heard that line before? Where? Hmm… on this very site…?

Well, yes, the Hedge Backwards font is all fine and dandy and does resemble the lettering legerdemain of comic book lettering robot, Richard Starkings… but has it been tweaked over the years to better suit the writing stylings of ELEPHANTMEN creator and writer, Richard Starkings? Has it been refurbished and digitally remastered by ELEPHANTMEN designer and Comicraft Secret Weapon, John JG Roshell? Hmm? No?

Well then… here it is, retooled, reimagined and reStarkingsed…ah, what the hell, we started from scratch! This ain’t no Greedo Shoots First—you won’t have to keep your pasty ‘70s VHS recordings of previous Richard Starkings Fonts inside a concrete bunker. Because any other font that claimed to be the official Richard Starkings font would have been called The Official Richard Starkings Font, would it not?
