Not All Apples Are Red: Selected Cartoons from THE POET - Volume 4



In stock



The Poet has been described as being "like PEANUTS, but if Linus was an old man and Woodstock had an attitude."

From the publisher:

Not All Apples Are Red is the fourth collection of The Poet comic strips, and follows its uniquely thoughtful cast of characters: the Poet, the Pigeon, and the Park Bench as they contemplate our silly place in the grand scheme of things, the meaning of poetry, and donuts. In this collection, The Poet has to grapple with the loss of his notebook, the Pigeon reads some interesting stories, and the Park Bench ruminates on stormy days.

"The Poet has a sense of humor about thinking hard and feeling deeply while not apologizing for such outrageous behavior. It's refreshing." -- Hal Hartley, film director

"Serene, existential, and self aware, Todd Webb's The Poet is a humorous and ultimately helpful respite from... everything." -- Adam J. Kurtz, author of Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives

"These gently funny comics give a glimpse of a poet making his way in the world, accompanied by a somewhat skeptical bird. The two in combination strike a happy balance between dreaminess and the corporeal world, so that what emerges is an overall sense of love for poetry and its makers - the kind of love that's intimate enough to make space for poking fun. (It also makes space for a talking bench, which is an inarguably good thing.)" -- Heather Christle, poet and author of What is Amazing and The Crying Book

"Todd Webb has figured out what poetry was missing all these years - PICTURES " -- Derek Drymon, creative director of SpongeBob Squarepants & executive producer of Adventure Time
