Lichtenstein is famous for his use of cartoon strips from American comic books, which were very popular the 1950s. He admired the skill of the comic book artist, who could create complex stories of love and war in cartoon form.
A feature of his comic inspired art were uses of onomatopoeic words. These are words that sound like what they are describing. Think... BOOM! SPLAT! CLANK! BANG! SPLASH! Can you think of any more?
