This article considers how sound effects construct the worlds of comics and define our relationship to those worlds through analyzing the experimental use of sound effects in two influential comics: Ōtomo Katsuhiro's Akira and Howard Chaykin's American Flagg! Sound effects in these works create a sense of depth, flatness, movement through time, moments in time, boundaries, and unboundedness—contorting the point(s) of view presented by the art alone. As sound effects in these works weave through the art, they take our point of hearing with them. In doing so, sound effects complicate not only our perception of space and time in comics' fictional worlds but also the stability of our relationship to those worlds.
