Mike would like to talk with you about snikt. And sploorp. And butcher some French while he’s at it. Today’s subject is onomatopoeia and the visual representation of sound, particularly in comics.
AMONG, BUT NOT ALL, THE THINGS MENTIONED:
- Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics
- Roy Crane
- The fadeout on the coda of Queen’s immortal “Fat Bottomed Girls” on the band’s greatest hits collection, which Mike is correctly peeved about and I’ll just add that it is a goddamn travesty THAT SOMEONE NEEDS TO ANSWER FOR
- Time is a flat circle/The Handsome Family
- Deadpool, elephant tusks, and Zombie Teddy Roosevelt
