Writing a Comic Book Poem – Faces -1

Faces – 1 is an abstract Comic Book Poem. With the writing I wanted to weave a narrative that focused on a confused character. I decided that I wanted a Comic Book Poem that only depicted portraits in the panels. I thought that this would be an interesting way to showcase a narrative and an abstract method to present a Comic Book Poem. The reader never gets to see the narrator and the visuals are the faces that the narrator sees.

From a writing point of view, the reader is told a story of unrealised expectations and missed opportunities. The text presents this, but the visuals may well tell another story. As the title suggests this is just a first part of a longer story. Further chapters in the Faces mini-series will continue in forthcoming series of Comic Book Poems.
