Hey /co/, I could use some help with the new comic I'm writing/lettering. I don't have a lot of experience with lettering, so your honest opinions could really help. I've got three different styles of lettering I'm considering, can you tell me what you think looks and flows the best? You can disregard the discrepancies in the actual writing, I will be sticking with something similar to the third page's writing.
We can also turn this into /co/ creator thread if yall want to.
here is a pdf>jpg cbr of "The Whale Song" I snagged from his site. SickJoe (art) is based as fuck i can't wait to see what he and ferretts do in the future...

White text on black definitely suits the colour palette more, and the rounded boxes are nicer than the regular ones. I would say go with version one, but put the captions in the second panel into boxes like the rest of the panels.
i was this way at first BUT i like the square boxes for the narration and the circle ones for dialogue, then i began to dislike the rounded corners on the rectangles
i also kinda like minimalistic decoration of rectangles as seen here in Alan Moore's Another Suburban Romance (2014)
also white with black text rectangles on B&W pages is based as fuck
op is kill.
what if something like this? rounded corners on the interior edges (the first box is re-positioned so i couldn't round the edge that hits his face, it was moved in example 3 tho)
