Drawn to Marvel: Poems From the Comic Books is the first-ever anthology of poetry about superheroes and comics. With over 100 contributors, and over 200 individual poems, this collection spans five decades of poetry exploring popular culture. Legendary contributors, alongside emerging voices, blast off the page to imagine and re-imagine favorite heroes and villains.
From their love lives to their greatest regrets, iconic characters are given fresh perspective and joined by some extraordinary underdogs. Poems tackle issues of identity, from race to sexuality to nationality to dis/ability. Won't you join the fight?
from Albert Goldbarth's foreword:
"[Superheroes are] everywhere, these days, as if their presence could make them more actual....The poets here understand the ancestry and the collateral branches of current superherodom."
