Well break out the chimichangas and crisp high fives, it's opening day of Deadpool 2! Maximum Effort! This one's got a lot of holes in it. So many holes. It's holy crap! hence, the perfectly ironic name.
042718. Thor Ragnarok is the funniest of all the Marvel films. I can watch it over and over. There is so much respect for Jack Kirby’s art style all over land of Sakaar. Growing up I never really appreciated Kirby’s artwork, as I leaned toward more graphically detailed artists. It wasn’t until much later that I recognized his great contributions to the entire language of visual expression in sequential art. I’m sorry I didn’t create this for the opening, but here it is for Avengers Infinity War.
042718. The Black Panther is the most dramatic Marvel film to come out yet. My jaw dropped when I experienced Oakland being represented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And when Too Short was playing in the background I almost lost it. Wakanda Forever! I’m sorry I didn’t create this for the opening, but here it is for Avengers Infinity War.
042718. Opening Day of The Avengers Infinity War. It’s been a while since I’ve released a Superhero movie font, but this one brings to life my entire childhood exposure to the Marvel Universe. Over ten years now, each movie is getting deeper and deeper into the reality of each character. Looking back, I’ve got fontstructions for most of the Avengers: Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and now Thor, and Black Panther. All of them in tribute to these heroic symbols translated into glyphic abstract symbols. Thank you comic books, for drawing me into these creative spaces.
G1 Radia. A scaled down version of an originally larger fontstruction. Lots of details with smooth micro bullnose serifs, high contrast stroke lines, and decorative ball terminals.This is a clone
G1 Valora. Extreme serif titling caps. Maxing out 48 brick height for Serifcomp. Not enough room for lowercase. Not enough time for more characters.This is a clone
elza: serif meets ball terminal... I found out the Germans actually have a word for this: 'Tropfenserife', which roughly translates as 'teardrop-serif'. Normally appearing at the end of strokes in letters such as a,c,f,g,j and r, I have tried to build this font around it, using it as its main design feature.
Retrofuturism, no sharp corners (except in the percent sign because of the smaller zeroes). Should probably better differentiate S/5... Also first try at Cyrillic.
Start and finish typing words with a bracket... Lots of alternates in lower case.

As the name suggests, I played around to create some classic Didone/Bodoni numbers. One day, I might also come to think of doing the rest of this typeface. ;-)
