    Nice! C and G don't need the overshoot on top. D, K, W, Z look too narrow. M N look a bit tame, maybe try the approach from A. Z's stem is too thick. 4 is too dark. Why do V and W not have the inward serif?

    If you make the N more pointy on the bottom-right, the counters will be more balanced. I like the little bit at the top of A, but I think it would be cleaner if it didn't exceed cap-height (like N). Also makes accents a lot easier to implement. The counters of S also need balancing, the top one looks bigger. Does descending the J make sense if it doesn't underneath any previous letter? Ampersand really has unbalanced stroke thickness, and I think a pointier (but still sort of normal) version would work better. I think, for the sake of visual unity, it would be nice if all letters (except for maybe O, I guess) had at least one spur somewhere. The top-left of stems seems the obvious candidate, but something less obvious could well be cooler.

    M still looks odd. Can you try the N's treatment on the left, and a more pointy treatment on the right (so that the counters visually align)? J should have less spacing on the left. Actually the spacing seems off in many locations. N still looks odd as well, because the top counter is much larger than the bottom one. The bottom terminals of C and S look a bit unsure.

    In your next image, maybe add some words/text?

    I tried making the M as suggested, looked even more odd than now. Maybe an extension on both ends like on the P will do the trick. mebbe not. Spacing isn't adjusted yet, I just don't want to put WIP's everywhere to indicate it. Bottom terminals on S and C look fine to me.

    In your sample, the publication marks are too small. The period (full stop) is a little too small, and the comma is very, very too small. The word space is much too big; it could probably be able half of what it currently is.

    I agree with Dan. Some letterpairs may need positive kerning, and/or a change of spacing. TT, PO, TH, TL all seem too tight to me. I think you've overdone it on the M and N a little bit. The spur doesn't have to be that big. The bottom terminal of C looks like it's cut off at too much of an angle, the stroke itself seems to follow a more horizontal trajectory. I still think N looks odd, but maybe that's okay. I think it could be wider though. 5's blunt top-left corner looks out of character with the sharpness of the rest to me. &, ?, and @ all look a bit wobbly. & is leaning to the left.

    The structure of A has given it really cramped counters, and the “upside down” counters of N (bigger on top) are a quirk echoed nowhere else in the alphabet.

    What are publication marks? The inch symbol?
    Dan, Jasper, Craig noted, thank you. Will work on it.

    Punctuation marks. Sorry! Period, comma, colon, etc.
