Comic books are known to be ‘silent media’, featuring no acoustic modes of representation. Yet, many techniques have been developed to express audible qualities by ‘graphic’ means. Five domains of sound representation can be heuristically distinguished, from the more ‘textual’ to the more ‘pictorial’ end of a continuum: narration boxes and speech bubbles, sound words and pictogrammatic symbols, and, finally, the evocation of sound by purely pictorial means. Tracing some of the media-specific tensions between these domains and conventions, this article provides a ‘seismograph’ to comic book vocabulary from the complementary perspectives of semiotics, narratology, and media studies.
