Comics as Poetry: Julian Peters, Cartoonist

Cartoonist Julian Peters creates comic-book adaptations of classic poetry. In last month's  Boston Globe profile he explained his view of the connection between sequential art and poetry, declaring that“ once people realized that comics are a medium that can be used to express any number of things, there was no reason they couldn't be paired in a more serious way with poetry.”  Peters' latest effort is T.S. Eliot’s, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock;" click HERE to view.
