Garden is a Comic Book Poem which breaks from the style set by Hidden, Yup, Yup and several other entries in this series. Partly due to break up the visual style and partly due to the fact I wanted to take the reader to a different world and partly because the text took on a different approach. Please see the Writing a Comic Book Poem – Garden blog post to understand more about the writing process for this particular Comic Book Poem.
Page 1 introduces a character. He is ugly, primitive and badly dressed. He is however strong. He is holding up the words and trying to stand bold and tall. Despite is bland looks he is trying to be proud, but this is contradicted, somewhat in page 2. Here we see a close character study with many panels giving intimate close ups of the character. He is de-constructed and in a way reconstructed within the panel layout. On page 1 he was bold and tall and on page 2 he is small and close. A parallel which is foreshadowed in the text.
