After previous series were published I have always done a postmortem blog post about what I was looking to achieve with the series and Comic Book Poems as a project. Now we are at Series 9 and have completed 3 years of the project. I think that this is quite an achievement.
Looking back at Series 9 we can see that all Comic Book Poems have a coherent style and approach. I think that this connects the 10 Comic Book Poems together and make them feel like a complete and cohesive series.
The fact that the series is short works well. It can be digested easily and re-read again and again. They also give just as much attention to the text as they do to the illustrations. This series emphasises the importance of words in Comic Book Poems.
I think I can say I have learnt that this approach is valid and exciting in a way. Short Comic Book Poems allow for a greater degree of experimentation and I like this aspect.

Now that another 10 Comic Book Poems have been released it is time to collect them together as a downloadable Zine. The title of Series 9 is HaHaHaHa and it collects the ten Comic Book Poems highlighted below. See the blog for the individual Comic Book Poems or view them here.
Alternatively wait a few days for the zine.

The Good One
Imagination and looking to the future. This is what I was looking to convey with this Comic Book Poem. It feels like a nice conclusion to this series. It is optimistic and passionate without being trite or didactic. It is obscure and wonderful and filled with whimsy and delight. It is a Comic Book Poem and it is hoped you enjoy The Good One.
