Pixton is a site where you can create your own comics (for free).

Of course, some people have made poetry-related comics:

An excerpt from an e.e.cummings poem, made into a cartoon by missliss47.

Weirdo next door made a version of The Raven. So did Jimmydean.

A Robbie Burns comic by Georgy Girl

Who Is Shakespeare? by Leekay 12

Excaliber was inspired by Joyce Kilmer's A Tree.

TGlenn created a comic about poet laureate Robert Pinsky. Someone else made one about Gwendolyn Brooks. Jack Vozelgang made a comic biography of William Carlos Williams. I think it's a popular classroom project because it's an interesting way to present information.

Want to try it yourself? They have contests!
