Maybe Chank or Brian Bonislawsky?

You could also draw your own, depending on what
flavor you are looking for.

I've never made my own fonts before (i know, shame on me). Maybe I should give it a try.
Is it difficult? :p
What kind of program do you recomment, after I have made sketches?

you might check out

In lieu of that, you scan your stuff into a raster program
such as Photoshop.
Streamline the raster to get vector.
Then the vector you can turn into a font using
FontLab or Fontographer or FontStudio.

Seeing as no-one else mentioned it, if you're new to type design and want to experiment before investing the $600 for FontLab, you could try TypeTool, FontLab's smaller brother, at a fraction of the price, with the added benefit its not nearly as scary to use!

Action Jackson is a Tom7 font, there's a link to his site on the page that lists the font: http://fonts.tom7.com/

All of his fonts are hand drawn like that. I've found several of them useful before.
