š! #18 ‘Poetry’ was released on September 22nd, 2014! The newest issue of our flagship anthology comes printed on even better paper than usual and feels better than ever!
It presents you a wide range of international poetry comics. Some of the contributions are visual adaptations of existing poems, others are collaborative efforts between poets and comic artists, but mostly they genuinely are poems as comics or comics as poems. How this looks (or reads) you can now see yourself!
