I am presently collaborating on a collection of graphic adaptations of the poetry of John Philip Johnson, entitled “Stairs Appear in a Hole Outside of Town.”Johnson is, in my opinion, one of the finest poets working in English today, brilliantly and unusually combining paranormal and sci-fi thematics with an understated, finely calibrated lyricism. Contributing to the illustrations is an impressive roster of talent, including Marvel comics legend Bob Hall. As for myself, in addition to illustrating the project’s titular poem, I am also designing the cover of the collection, which is to be printed in the format of a classic American comic book.
A Kickstarter campaign has recently been set up to finance the production of this grounbreaking hybrid comic/poetry book. The campaign is off to a great start, having already met its initial goal of $500, but the more money we raise, the more copies we can print up and distribute.
