This unique compendium would have come in handy while watching Batman on TV in the 60s. I looked up KAPOWIE and found the following variations:
KAPOW (Our Fighting Forces #111, 1968) The sound of a tank gun: (Ultraman vol.1 #2, 1994) The sound of a hit: also KAPOWW (Detective Comics vol.47 #529, 1983) The sound of an explosion: KAA-POW (Ultraman vol.1 #1, 1994) The sound of a gunshot.
