When I said, a while back, that the only visual poems I could bear were those by Craig Russell, I was clearly being what Bugs Bunny would call a maroon. Jeff / Catherine Jones' I'm Age ran in Heavy Metal from '81 to '84 and, as well as having one of the greatest titles ever, is a truly fantastic strip, as was it's predecessor Idyll. As art masquerading as comedy, ( or comedy masquerading as philosophy? ) it's one of my favourite thought provoking comic strips. Somebody really should collect this strip in a little book for people to leave in their bathrooms, something to freak out random house guests. As an aid to life, it sure beats The Little Book of fucking Calm.
