With humor and the serious collector's delight, Gary Jackson imagines the comic-book worlds of Superman, Batman, and the X-men alongside the vertiable world of Kansas, racial isolation, and the gravesides of a sister and a friend. Selected by Pulitzer-winner Yusef Komunyakaa, Missing You, Metropolis is the 2009 winner of the Cave Canem Poetry Prize, given to the best first collection by an African American poet.
