This zine by Old Pond Comics features forty haiku-comics inspired by poems of famous Japanese poets Basho, Issa, Buson and more!
Inside the booklet, the haiku-comics are separated by seasons.
The center-fold is a series of 4 haiku-comics on Kobayashi Issa’s snail haiku (my favorites).
It’s important to put good comics in the centre because that’s where the book naturally opens when people browse.
Some winter haiku-comics featuring haiku by Kobayashi Issa and Buson.
The cover features a print from Hokusai’s “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji”.
The back cover features a little portrait of Kobayashi Issa (the main source of inspiration for my haiku-comics).
The zine will be for sale at Canzine this Nov.8 and on the Old Pond Comics online store .
