This issue presents you a wide range of international poetry comics. Some of the contributions are visual adaptations of existing poems, others are collaborative efforts between poets and comic artists, but mostly they genuinely are poems as comics or comics as poems. As you will discover, there are countless ways of interaction for the two mediums to merge into a new poetic visual art form.
