Comics are cultural artifacts that narrate stories through sequential images. With the turn of the century, these artifacts are being understood as a form of visual language. To understand the visual language of comics, it is imperative to study its core components: image and text. In this paper, the status of sound symbolic words used in Indian comic books is reviewed, which may lead to the analysis and creation of further sound symbolic words. It is found that the onomatopoeic words, created based on the typographic attributes like, alignment, weight, color, texture and size are more effective in conveying the meaning of a sound. Identification of these factors provides insights about the relationship of a sound to its textual representation. This study will prove helpful to the comic book designers by being an additional tool for communicating their story more efficiently.
