Metrically equivalent replacement for Comic Sans


I know everyone loves to hate on Comic Sans, and I was having trouble finding a metrically equivalent replacement for it, so I made one. My concept is "what if Vincent Connare had a ruler?" I'm trying to maintain the character that people love about Comic Sans, while removing the oddities and irregularities. Using the same metrics means there is still plenty of WTF in here, but hopefully it is an improvement. This is my first font, so it's probably pretty rough.

Here's a comparison to Comic Sans

I also need a name. I was thinking "Liberation Comic", but it wouldn't officially be a part of the Liberation fonts. Maybe "Comic Spans" because it spans the same space as Comic Sans.

Trade Gothic (Extended) in Cyrillic?

I need to create an English/Russian publication for a company using Trade Gothic font family as their corporate typeface. I've found equivalents for the Regular, Regular Italic and Bold styles on ParaType website (namely http://News Gothic) but am having difficulties finding replacements for the Extended and Bold Extended styles. Do you know any other Cyrillic typeface that could be used as a replacement to Trade Gothic, with regular and extended widths? Many thanks.
