Comic Sans is the font some people love to hate, which is silly because it's just a typeface, and, really, it's friendly and cheerful. In fact, typography designer Vincent Connare devised it to be friendly and cheerful. It was created to be used in Microsoft products for kids and new computer users back in the 1990s, so he wanted a font that wasn't too serious — not like formal old Times Roman or dull Arial.

The annual "Oscars" of the comic book industry are named for what creator of "The Spirit" and "Joe Dope"?

A) Al Capp

C) Will Eisner

D) Art Spiegelman
