Reading the Visual Lyric in Poetry Comics? presents an introduction to the history and concept of poetry comics. Poetry comics include adaptations of poems into the comics medium and some wordless comics and experimental comics. A definition of lyric poetry provides a working taxonomy to delimitate the boundaries of the poetry comics genre. Theoretical considerations regarding poetry, a brief overview of some of the theoretical debates concerning poetry and postmodern poetry are described along with the implications of adding the semiotic or visual analysis to visual poetry or poetry comics. Some close readings offer examples of how the theoretical mixes with the visual nature of poetry comics and the names of other artists producing poetry comics are provided.
