The Poem as Comic Strip

I'm not sure if I've ever posted this before, but The Poetry Foundation has been commissioning graphic novelists and cartoonists to adapt poetry into comic strips. So far there are three wonderful renditions (note: click the links for the complete strip):

David Heately on Diane Wakoski's "Belly Dancer"

Gabrielle Bell on Emily Dickenson's "It Was Not Death, For I Stood Up"

Jeffrey Brown on Russel Edson's "Of Memory and Distance"

In other news, you know you need a new laptop when the space bar sticks every 10 punches. Maybe I should plan that graduation party now....
