I guess it’s a reflection of the time that I grew up in, but I LIKE comics with sound effects. I suppose it doesn’t work with a ‘serious’ subject, but for super-hero stories, it works for me, so you get a lot of them on this page.
By the way, someone actually crashed into a fire hydrant in front of my house a while back and tore it out of the street, sending a 30 foot geyser of water up into the air, and I can confirm that it actually does make a CLANG! SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSH! sound when it happens.
