CLICK THE IMAGES TO SEE BIGGER VERSIONS, WHICH IS WHERE THE MAGIC IS.

I think everyone has a soft spot for the language of comics, specifically the colorful descriptive action words (for sounds) that litter the pages of Marvel. Taken out of context these words become odd nonsensical phrases with strange spellings that beguile the viewer. This intrigues me so I started exploring the results of cropping these words from their original home. It's also very pleasing (to me) to see the enlarged results of the four color print process being exposed. The work of Richard Prince and John Hilgart, clearly a big influence here. This is simply an ongoing curiosity study.
