Citta of Glass
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Paul Karasik 9 Mar 2009 5:46 PM

  

Each year the Dedica Festival in northern Italy celebrates a single writer. Last year they invited Nadine Gordimer and this year they will raise a glass or two of Chianti to Paul Auster. The graphic novel version of Auster's "City of Glass" has sold out of three separate editions in Italy so the organizers of the event have also invited Paul Karasik to Dedica at the end of March. For the first time Karasik's original panel-by-panel breakdowns of City of Glass will be exhibited and a limited edition of facsimile copies will be sold. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear Auster and Karasik discuss the process of the creation of the graphic novel.

Yes, we have no NYCC
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Paul KarasikEsther Pearl Watson 3 Feb 2009 5:58 AM

A lot of folks keep asking me if we'll have a presence at the New York Comic-Con this weekend. We won't. It's a ridiculously expensive show to exhibit at and travel to, even in the best economy. It's a lousy time of year to travel cross-country, weather-wise. So we're staying home and throwing a great party for Esther Pearl Watson this weekend instead.

But if you are at NYCC, we've designated Paul Karasik our official representative and you should go say hi to him: 

Sunday, 1:30pm, Panel Room 6 (1A18):
Comics and the Language of Visual Symbolism
Comics are able to communicate dense layers of narrative, emotion, and action in a manner that no other media is able. This panel will explore the way the cartoonists use pictures to tell their stories in a way that is unique to comics. Through the interrelation of art and text, comics makes a unique kind of storytelling possible. Four creators examine their own visual storytelling styles and discuss how their art influences the text of their work. Panelists: MoCCA Director Karl Erickson, Paul Karasik, Danica Novgorodoff, and Alex Robinson.
