Poetry in comics, poetry comics.


This essay in comics form seeks to investigate poetry in comics, both as a fairly recent medium-specific genre (“comics poetry”, as exemplified notably by Ink Brick) and as the result of the adaptation of preexisting texts. It examines the specific issues – aporias, even – raised by the adaptation of poetry into comics, pointing in particular to the prevalence of an additive logic, which posits them as subservient to the original texts. I then study comics poetry, as a corpus, as a practice, but also as a set of discursive and institutional moves, aiming at establishing a medium-specific genre.
