The Unfortunate Sound Effects of The Savage She-Hulk
I spent a good amount of time reading through The Essential Savage She-Hulk today, and let me tell you: Even for a book where a giant green woman rampages around Los Angeles wrecking cars and jacking up the occasional mobster so that he'll turn State's Evidence, that thing's got a lot of sound effects.
Page for page, it might just be the noisiest comic I've ever read, and considering that I consider a panel without an explosion to be a panel wasted, that's saying something.
And they're not just the regular kind, either. I'm only a few issues in, and already I've counted three TBUNGs, along with KRIMPLLL, DAKRUNCH, and, my personal favorite, KAR-CROOM--a sound effect that, considering it's the noise made by Shulkie chucking a Volkswagen at an eighteen-wheeler, really should've been "KAR-TRUK!"
There is, however, one sound effect right at the climax of Savage She-Hulk #2 that stands out even among those, one that writer David Anthony Kraft maybe should've thought about a little harder before he went ahead and slapped it onto a a scene where a buxom green Amazon stomps around in a ripped-up hospital gown:
I mean really: That's got to be the most judgemental lamppost in comics history.
