Ask A Cartoonist: Biff! BAM!… splat?


This week’s “Ask A Cartoonist” blog post is all about sounds in the comics. MAD Magazine’s Don Martin was the king of onomatopoeia, making up the most delightful and disgusting sounds for his MAD cartoons. Sound effects are part of the job for every cartoonist. You’ll find our contribution to this noisy post at the bottom — It is a tale. Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.


Comics Kingdom — Ask A Cartoonist

Last week, Comics Kingdom’s Ask A Cartoonist blog called on cartoonists to share stories and memories of Halloween. I wrote a bit about the fun haunted houses my Dad created for a few kids’ parties my family put on in the 60s and 70s. I’ve even provided a little diagram of all the layout and “horrors” waiting around each corner.
