The Art Part of Poetry

The dark narative of contemporary cartoons allways seemed to me as a place to find poetry. One such example is Abandoned Cars, by Tim Lane.
http://jackienoname.com/JACKIEmain.html This interview I found with Lane, on Comics Reporter reminded me of Frank O’Hara and his experiments with art and poetry, and also made me think of Comics poetry as a genre in full expansion. Here, check, Bianca Stone’s Poetry Comics with tips on other poetry artist too, and find some hot cartoonists interviewed on their relation to poetry.
Billy Colins had his poetic take to cartoon characters and for a while this has been a systematic approach in poetry workshops.
