Kudos for Karasik and Mazzucchelli's City of Glass: The Graphic Novel; Henry Martin's Spot Drawings; Seth's "Quiet Art of Cartooning"


The graphic novel adaptation of Paul Auster's novel, City of Glass,  by Paul Karasik with David Mazzucchelli, has topped the Canon of New York comics. A survey of select cartoonist conducted by New York Magazine places City of Glass as the best graphic novel featuring New York City. The adaptation was also chosen by The Comics Journal as one of the Best Comics of the 20th Cenutry. Along with Paul Auster, Mr. Karasik will be a guest at the Dedica Literary Festival in Pordenone, Italy at the end of March 2009.
