Rei’s 5 Haiku. Written on a foodcourt napkin…

1. Ying is sick.

He’s been sleeping all day long.

And I think of Earth.

2. Comics smell so good.

Did you ever notice that?

Little paper scent.

3. Ying is my best friend.

His breath smells like an old fire.

Technicolor dreams.

4. Aki on my mind.

Leather pilot jacket on.

Hair as black as space.

5. Superheroes attack!

The villains of the space mall.

Bored Lekrus with money.

He met Bianca Alu-Marr at an open mic in 2003 (Steve was playing music and doing the sound, Bianca was reading her poetry). The Comicverse is one of many projects they have collaborated on, and their most popular. Bianca is the writer and and Steve is the artist. Sometimes Bianca writes and plots the stories; many stories are co-plotted by Bianca and Steve.
