This pack was formerly 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?!

Included in this set:

  • The Brushes: Over 50 authentic ink, outline, vector brushes – perfect for creating realistic looking comic book artwork.
  • Ink and Halftone Texture Patterns: Featuring real ink and halftone textures these seamless patterns are supplied as one-click swatches. The perfect partner to the outline brushes.
  • Technical info: the texture patterns measure between 2000 x 2000 px and 3000 x 3000 px.
  • Vintage Overlays: Add an extra level of retro realism! The distressed textures are showcased in the preview images. Two designs are supplied, measuring 2320 x 1544 pixels. Each contains three layers of texture, which can be turned on and off as needed.
  • Comic Book Shapes: Speech bubbles, flashes, explosions, clouds and more! Save time by dropping these into your design. They are in vector format, so they can be scaled infinitely. Supplied as Affinity Assets.
  • Example File: I’ve included an image for you to backwards engineer. Please note: this image can be used for personal use only.
  • A Quick Reference Guide: Navigate your way through this extensive tool kit easily using this handy PDF.
    Instructions: A very thorough guide on how to use each of the elements is supplied.

    Umm…wasn’t this (at least in part) included in ‘The Digital Designer’s Artistic Toolkit (1000s of Best-Selling Items)’?

    • Gina Tomes

      Great spot Alfonso – the Photoshop version of the Vintage Comic Creator was included in The Digital Designer’s Artistic Toolkit (1000s of Best-Selling Items). This is included on the product page for the Photoshop version 🙂

      We do always list the software compatibility on all of our deal pages, and the great news is that the designer has advised that this should work in Illustrator CS1 and newer :).
