I have this comic book in Russian that uses characters I don't know from my Russian learning materials.
Please see my image. There are:
- small m
- и with line on top
- mirrored s
Which 'standard' characters do they represent?
-small m =
-и with line on top =
-mirrored s =
These are handwriting style characters, but some of them (
-и with line on top and
mirrored s in particular) are also used in italicized version of some Russian fonts, Arial and Times New Roman to name a few.
Those are cursive forms: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_cursive
The letters you were surprised by are, in order listed, Тт Йй Дд Гг.
In some fonts you might also encounter 'mirrored 6' which is 'small д'.
Nobody posted these letters italicized yet, so here you go:
