super bug / fire truck (expanded) font

description:

recreation of the large pixel font from atari's super bug (1977) and fire truck (aka smokey joe, 1978).

in the games, the font is incomplete. both lack a Q, V and W, which I made from scratch for this recreation, trying to approximate the overall style/feel. the J is present in super bug, but not fire truck. conversely, the K is present in fire truck only.

with the exception of the added letters, only the characters present in the games' tilesets have been included.
