Comics and Visual Poetry

via Austin Kleon:

Neil Gaiman was on Studio 360 a couple weeks ago, talking about reading poetry in relation to comics: “I learned so much using words and pictures and captions from some of the most concrete poets, because poetry is all about economy, and it’s about reducing things down, and you’re seeing how much freight you can actually give words....”

Kenneth Koch was a poet who loved comics.
