As kids, we would eagerly wait for dad to come home and bring us a copy of Indrajaal Comics featuring heroes such as Mandrake the magician, and Phantom. Comics are such amazing visual medium that combine the right amount of text and pictures to narrate stories or slices of stories. For effects, comic-makers add sound or rather words that indicate sound like boom or crack. Sometimes the language doesn’t have the right word for a sound-effect. Then, the creators create new words for sounds. Creators also use differing font, or varying length of word(s) to indicate the intensity of the sound.
