Nerd Up Your Social Media with These Pop Culture Fonts

I have absolutely no talent when it comes to drawing. In fact, I mailed in one of those art school tests back in the ’80s but apparently my spyrographs weren’t exactly what they were looking for.

It’s a good thing there are more talented artists than me in this world to give us things like cartoons and comic books. I do “marvel” at even the simplest of creations like superhero logos and special fonts so I was excited to find a combination of both! I love Photoshop as much as the next guy so these “dingbat” fonts (okay, now they’re just rubbing it in) are a huge shortcut for illustratively-challenged people like myself to get their geek on.

Here are several free fonts from that you can use to nerd up your blog or social media profile. Just keep in mind these are intended for personal use. If you want to use them commercially, please do the right thing and send a donation to the author on the host site.


Put on display all the ‘66 Batman TV show exclamations you can handle.


I Love ‘80s

I’ve downloaded several essential ‘80s fonts in the past, but this one has a huge variety of characters, people, and logos.


Hall Of Heroes

Practically every meaningful comic book and cartoon logo in one font.


The Walking Dead

Shadows and illustrations of characters and some great bloody handprints.

Over 90 total blockbuster and cult classic movie logos.


Batman Evolution Logo

The gang’s all here!


Retro WWF Figures

OH YEEEEEAH!!!! Some old school wrestlers in this collection I hadn’t thought of in years. And if this isn’t enough, check out these pro wrestling logos.


Breaking Bad

Some great illustrations and also some fun parody logos.


Galaxy Far Far Away

All the ships, characters, and logos needed to conquer the galaxy.


Game Logos

These go from present day all the way back to the beginning of gaming.


Simpsons Mmmm…Font

simpsons character font

If you want something a little more specific, check out the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror font.

If I missed one of your favorites, search the dingbat archive at Dafont. More pop culture fonts available like Futurama, Scooby-Doo, Space Invaders, Star Trek TNG, Pixar, Harry Potter, X-men, Family Guy, Lost, or Super Mario Brothers.
