Glossary of Printing Terms:
Balloons

A graphic device often seen in comic books, balloons are boxes, circles, or cloudlike shapes that contain the words or thoughts of a character. These speech balloons or thought bubbles come in many shapes. Typically an extended or pointed portion of the balloon or a straight line points to the character speaking. Cloud-shaped balloons often indicate what a character is thinking rather than what is being spoken.
