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?!

This brush/style pack came out JUST in time for a project I needed some old school comic book flare for. Everything just worked. The textures for the styles look great, the color choices are solid. Came with everything I needed to make my project really stand out, and my client very happy. Buy this pack, and thank me later.
