This book is a collection of hay(na)ku poems in comic strip form, edited and co-created by Ernesto Priego with words and images by John Bloomberg-Rissman, Sam Bloomberg-Rissman, Amy Bernier, Jane Ogilvie, Horacio Castillo, Ira Franco and Ginger Stickney. Foreword by Eileen R. Tabios. Introduction by Ernesto Priego. Back cover text by Márton Koppány. The hay(na)ku, a poetic form invented by Eileen R. Tabios, is a six-word tercet with the first line being one word, the second line being two words, and the third line being three words. Poets around the world have used the form and have created textual and visual variations, including the chained hay(na)ku which strings together more than one tercet as well as the reverse hay(na)ku where the word count is reversed. Ernesto Priego started the project co-creating strip hay(na)ku poems in 2008, inspired by examples of Slovenian "strip haiku".
