This pack was formally known as ‘The Retro Comic Book Tool Kit’. It has been expanded and refined and now includes many more resources

This fantastically extensive selection of brushes, seamless textures, shapes and overlays was designed to help you quickly and easily create vintage comic book themed designs and illustrations.

The tools contained in the pack were both inspired by and sourced from real retro comic books and have retained the aged, life-like aesthetics, providing a tool which significantly cuts down the time and effort it takes to create realistic looking artwork and type.

The pack is perfect for vintage fair posters, comic book convention materials, retro party flyers, stationery, cards, invites and much, much more. Just imagine what you could create?!
