Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry

Timed to National Poetry Month in April, Plough Publishing Press is releasing Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry, an all new anthology by cartoonist Julian Peters. Over the course of 24 classic poems — from Maya Angelou’s “Caged Bird” to W. B. Yeats’ “When You Are Old” — the Montreal-based artist has created stunning visual interpretations of some of the world’s most beloved poems. Each iconic poem is interpreted for the page using a different and compelling visual style, showcasing both the diversity of the source material and the storytelling possibilities of the comics artform. 

Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry features poems by Maya Angelou, W. H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop, e. e. cummings, Emily Dickinson, Tess Gallagher, Thomas Hardy, Robert Hayden, Seamus Heaney, William Ernest Henley, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Langston Hughes, John Philip Johnson, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Edgar Allen Poe, Christina Rossetti, Carl Sandburg, Siegfried Sassoon, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Stevie Smith, Dylan Thomas, William Wordsworth, and W. B. Yeats. 

POEMS TO SEE BY is a perfect fit not only for die-hard poetry fans and curious new readers—it’s also a fantastic teaching tool that any educator trying to get their students excited by poetry should pick up for their classroom.

Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry is in bookstores on March 31, 2020.

SUPERS (Book One)

Frédéric Maupomé (w) • Dawid (a & c)

“Tell me again about Mom?” “You know I don’t remember much.” “That’s okay. You’ll have to make it up, then.”

Mat, Lili, and Benji aren’t from around here. Abandoned on planet Earth, hiding far from their home, they can’t even use their powers in public, for fear of being discovered. Starting at a new school is hard enough already…

Supers won the first ever Youth Award from ACBD (the French Association of Comics Critics) thanks to its rich blend of family tension, super-thrills, and classroom drama, all presented in gorgeous full-color artwork. Now it’s your turn to meet these awesome immigrants. Welcome to the family!
