Poemicstrips

I just posted a comic strip collage, “Full Size Patterns,” at Piotr Szreniawski’s Poemicstrip blog – contributions also by Gary Barwin, Sven Staelens, Rappel, and others. I think Piotr is looking for other contributors, so check it out!

About Full Size Patterns:
I alternated frames of “cowboy and Indian” and sci-fi comic strips from 1950s British Boy Scout magazines, narratives that play out the idea of the “other” in society. In one narrative, the cowboys kill the Indian “others,” a failure of their civilization to recognize the humanity of the native people. In the other narrative, the earthmen’s rocket fails and crashes, but instead of the alien “others” killing the earthmen, they help them.
