Ogú, Mampato y Rena translation.
Old chilean comic, never been officially translated. High quality scans already exist, so everything else is fair game

Badaboom sounds like something from an exercise video from the 90s, but it's still better than BATHROOM.

Updated the second link with Rena en el Siglo Cuarenta. As before, I left the irregular fonts to figure out later the best way to typeset them.

You did good with editing out the background, I'm guessing it was just the default context sensitive fill, but it works fine and you can only tell the difference if you eyeball both panels for comparison.

For the replaced font, I'd try to stay close to the original ones style (try to keep the same colour and relative size). In this case what stands out the most is the lack of black outline. The outline is also important because then the text is more readable when placed in front of a non-empty background.

Also keeping the font size similar (not per-letter, but so the floating text is around the same size) means you can place the text on the same area that you had to fill up when removing the original text, meaning that you can use it to hide up any inaccuracies in the background fill.

The original uses hand-drawn letters, you can't exactly do that in photoshop/gimp unless you opt to re-draw it. But you could perhaps make the text have some effect so it's not blindingly obvious that you just put a text box in there.

It's not just a question of the font, you can use things like text kerning and transformations to make the text appear longer/bigger, non-uniform, or even wavy. If you want to go the extra mile, you could even just set the font size per letter (but that's really annoying to edit).

For the swirly effect, you can apply a curving shape in photoshop and then put text on it:

dunno how to do it in other editors tho.

Write the text, turn the layer into a raster, then distort it.
This is assuming you use Photoshop.

Sure, though we might need to keep check of certain terms (specifically for Ogu) since they become recurring in later issues.

Translator dude here, its looking great, but i think you should kept the "Mampatoo", since phonetically the u at the end Mampatu doesn't carry the same energy and sound for an english speaker. I know i kept the spelling for most of Ogu's caveman words, but the way he changes the spelling for spanish/english words to be more phonetic should be kept IMO since is part of his cha.

I agree that mampatoo sounds better, but mampatu is very prevalentin exclamations and irregular fonts, many of which I can’t change because I can’t redraw. I personally think that it would be better to keep the consistency between the bubbles and exclamations, but if you guys think it’s not important I can change it back.

That's a fair point, at least try experimenting to see how it looks, if the feedback is bad you can keep Mampatu unchanged.
