The Poetry of Comics: A Conversation with Collage Artist Mita Mahato

“Comics made the confusion and desperation feel contained. By ‘contained’ I don’t mean controlled—more the feeling of ‘I can deal with this piece of my grief, explore it, turn it around, and add context to it.’”

Cover Photo: A collage by Johnny Damm made from a vintage comic book. The collage is of a white man in a purple suit floating in the air above a field of green. He appears to be jumping backwards, facing up toward the sky with lines coming from his body representing movement.
Cover Photo: There are two comic panels. The one on left is the back of cartoon version of Andrew Lorenzi's head looking up at crows flying overhead. It is drawn in surreal colors so the crows are blue and the sky is light pink. The second frame is from above, looking down at Lorenzi and his car in between the crows feathers. The ground below Andrew is lavender and his looks like his frowning. Written across the two frames is "AAAAAAAAAAA" in uneven letters to signify the crows' calls.

“Describing what it feels like for somebody to not be there is a very abstract process. Pretty much this whole book has been trying to figure out how to do that.”
