Foreword by William Corbett

A handful of artists have wandered away from mainstream comics only to find themselves at the periphery of poetry. Here, they bend and shove the vocabulary of comics to make the medium yield new effects. The results are original and surprising, and invite the reader to participate in experiments performed upon narrative, art, and language.

With eight contributing artists and a foreword by acclaimed poet William Corbett, Comics as Poetry offers a glimpse into a fascinating world in which creators test the limits of sequential art in pursuit of their personal visions.
