This of course assumes that I actually read comics that have bams and pows in them :-)

Also, there's a difference between using onomatopoeia to represent, however poorly, sounds in a medium that lacks audio, and faking a sound where no sound could possibly be. After all, smacking someone on the jaw does make a sound, even if it's no more like "pow" than "meow" or "moo" are like the real sounds of cats or cows.
