Personally, I find the style in the final panel to be most appealing. The text is nicely legible against the transparent white background and the border of white between the text and the image is helpful. Ohter fonts I like are Tahoma (which is the default font for most of the website) and Comix (which is/was used in Team Nexus).

The level of transparency is not constant and may change. The main difference between the last two is the black border around the white one, but it's hardly visible with the dark background. I'll ask more people before I make my final decision. I will consider using Comix, if I have it, but I don't remember having it.

I like the last panel, the black outline may be subtle but it looks more defined. A small point I'd like to make (which is really more relevant to MC Comic but as I'm already posting in here... ) - the comic image is 1050x820. Whilst I browse in 1280x800, the most popular resolution is 1024x768 (34.51% of visitors) which would require scrolling to view. I have put a full breakdown of the resolutions the forums.

Don't worry about the size. This is probably the only landscape comic I'll ever make.

Font wise, I like Short Hand the best. It's readable & I think its style suits the Comic. Trebuchet MS is a close second. It just doesn't have the same panache as Short Hand.
Bubble wise, I like both the example in panels 4 & 6 the same.

I think I'll stick to Short Hand myself, but I will add it in Photoshop, rather than Paint.

Just out of curiosity, how did you explain the jagged, pixelated fonts?

As long as it's legible, it's whatever works for you. I would say it might be better idea to add the text AFTER resizing it though.
