It's simple physics. For every KRAKK there is an equal and opposite KRAKK.
Well ... how else would you draw a KRAKK? it draws itself, really.
Since so much is done with computers these days, I'd just assume that the KRAKK is a cut & paste job from some typographic template.
The magic probably took the reflexes away.
You'll note the "fwoosh" in the JLA issue is exactly the same as examples from GLs, too.My vote says it's a standard font, especially given the emphasis on computer coloring.It's not quite as lazy as Xeroxing an entire panel (which I've seen far too often), though.
Obviously nobody here has ever been in a fistfight.Should you ever deck somebody with a solid right cross, the outlines of a large word will appear in the air, usually "KRAKK." The artists are simply documenting the true nature of violence and fisticuffery.A good uppercut usually generates an opaque "WHOOM," while a sharp jab produces a small jagged "WHAP."You've gotta be careful, though. If you follow through too much on the cross, you can cut yourself on the edge of the last "K." That thing's dang sharp.
This is why my people were pacifists; the SFX of fighting is too hard to spell.
Just say "no" to KRAKK!
