Unexpected Rain Song


National Poetry Month on Incidental Comics continues with this reimagining of the classic Langston Hughes poem "April Rain Song." I first read this poem in the children's poetry anthology "Sing a Song of Popcorn," which remains one of the most-read books on my bookshelf.

Understanding Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I'll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  "imaginary gardens with real toads in them."

The National Department of Poetry


Imagine a nation controlled by a vast, multibillion-dollar poetry bureaucracy. That's a country I'd like to be a part of.
