Spotlighting the "Sock! Pow! Zok!" that give comics a voice, celebrating the onomatopoeia.

Well, it's been over a year, but I've finally completed the addition of the 10 Marvel Comics from August 1963. Amazing how a baby and a pandemic combine to sap all free time! There are 72 new sound effects, bringing the site total up to 2,475 from 275 comics.

And just a reminder that even if the site updates are few and far between, on Twitter and Tumblr I am posting cool new sound FX from new comics the week that they come out. Follow me there to join the fun!

Another Marvel Silver Age month completed with the addition of 11 comics from July 1963! This month saw the first appearance of Doctor Strange in Strange Tales #110, but also the end of both Gunsmoke Western and Love Romances, the latter of which ended with a whimper as it had no sound effects in its final two issues. But don't be too sad for these series -- their cancellations made room in Marvel's printing schedule for two new books to soon debut -- Avengers and X-Men!

These books add 124 sound effects, bringing the total to 2,403 from 265 comics!

The 10 Marvel Comics from June 1963 have now been added to the database. It's a relatively light month, adding 57 sound effects to give us a total of 2,279 from 254 comics. I'm also already halfway done with the following month's books, so they'll be posted soon as well!

We're back with the addition of 11 Marvel Comics from May 1963, including the first issue of Sgt. Fury! These books add 118 sound effects, bringing the total to a nice round 2,222 from 244 comics. (There were no sound effects in Love Romances #105).

I'm planning to moderately increase the number of updates over the next six months. Stay tuned!

Another complete month from the Marvel Silver Age is done with April 1963! There are 62 new sound effects from the 10 comics this month -- including some rare comics work by the legendary Jack Davis on Rawhide Kid -- bringing our total to 2,105 sound effects from 233 comics.

Did you know this website also has a Tumblr blog? It does! It's similar to the other social media posts detailed in the last update, combining the site's contents with cool new sound effects from the current week's new comics. Check it out!
