Writing a Comic Book Poem – The Wingless Bird

Adventures in Comics is a comic book project based at Marine Studios in Kent. Each year they produce a book and exhibition of comic book art and storytelling in 2013 the theme for was the The Great Tree and that is where The Wingless Bird sprang from. The Wingless Bird featured in the Adventures in Comic Exhibition and Book.
For the poetry I based the words around a character I had been drawing in my sketchbook, this was an image of a Wingless Bird. I thought about what it would get up to while sitting on a tree. I also wanted to base this Comic Book Poem around a story. As it was being submitted for a book and exhibition I wanted to showcase both the poetry and the story. Therefore I introduced the conflict of the snake and the story and the words were formed. Give the text a read below, but the words and pictures really have to go together on this one.

The Wingless Bird

A wingless bird
on a lazy branch
Cause he know nothing
really happens

A satisfied snake
slithers down a sycamore
Cause he never realised, what
comes around
goes around.
