Years ago, a group of friends had a conversation regarding terrible manga in which someone joked about there being levels of badness like the Circles of Hell in the Divine Comedy. This led to the notion that there might be some incredibly terrible manga at the very bottom, where Dante placed Brutus.
You can see where this is going.
Brutus makes use of some fonts by Blambot, who don't charge license fees for using them in self-published and small-press comics like this one. Very cool! Thanks guys!
