April is National Poetry Month! Poems and comics actually have a lot in common. Both poems and comics capture a moment or a mood and convey it in a neat, concise and meaningful way. In honor of National Poetry Month, Comics Kingdom has compiled this collection of comics featuring poetry.
1. Dan Piraro and “Bizarro” pay homage to Dr. Seuss.
2. Wanda in “Baby Blues” is feeling creative and writes a poem on what she personally knows.
3. Earl in “Mutts” ponders the beauty of the changing seasons with a poem.
4. Jill in “The Pajama Diaries” finds poetic inspiration in strange places.
5. A walk in the woods as seen by “Six Chix” cartoonist, Isabella Bannerman.
6. Middle age “rhyme time” with Susan, the lead character in “Between Friends.”
7. Math and poetry meet in this “Rhymes With Orange” cartoon.
8. Winter to Spring haiku.
9. Data analytics can never take the place of true emotions.
