Comicstrips = Haiku

The Polish poemicstrip blog "a trip to the world of poemics" by Piotr Szreniawski (and someone else whose name I unable to glean due to my nonexistent Polish) is excellent and has inspired me to continue to play around with some of the conventions of the comic strip which, though it perhaps doesn't have the longevity of the haiku form, has, like the haiku tradition, many conventions (of narrative, of disjunction, of image, and of the means of representation) with which to explore fruitfully and creatively.
