The exploits you find in my comics
are no more probable
than snow in Sunnyvale.
I'm not as black as you dream.

Missing You, Metropolis

With humor and the serious collector's delight, Gary Jackson imagines the comic-book worlds of Superman, Batman, and the X-Men alongside the veritable worlds of Kansas, racial isolation, and the gravesides of a sister and a friend.

About the Author:

Gary Jackson was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas. He received his M.F.A. from the University of New Mexico and has taught in Albuquerque and in Anyang, South Korea.

Review:

“Gary Jackson's Missing You, Metropolis embodies a voice uniquely shaped and tuned for the twenty-first century. Playful, jaunty, rueful, and highly serious--sometimes within a singular poem--this persona has been forged in the caldron of popular iconography, especially in the culture of the comic book. Anything is possible in such created time and space; immediate tension exists in a climate where otherworldly figures are defined by earthly matters and concerns. The funny-book world is a perfect landscape for innuendo and signification, and Jackson uses these aptly. This first collection of poems is gauged by a sophisticated heart.” ―YUSEF KOMUNYAKAA, from the Introduction
