I don't want to get too nosy (I don't know wether you want to hear critics) but maybe a touch of DIN would be good. I know it should remain comic sans, but somehow I think they shouldn't dance too much…
Kepp it up!

Ofcourse - critics keep me going.

I have been thinking about this problem. A text font really shouldn't be dancing at all, so a touch of sharp edged cool and stability (as in DIN) seems in order.

On the other hand I want to stay focused on the problem I'm dealing with: the overusage of Comic. I could design any text font and come up with tons of different proposals, but in this experiment I don't want to deviate from the initial idea.

I agree that the dancing characters are not good for legibility. Yet, people still seem to enjoy them. I'm looking for a functional and beautiful compromise.

Mmmh... "Compromise Sans," maybe that would be a good name too.
