Karsik co-created (with David Mazzuchelli), City of Glass, the graphic novel adaptation of Paul Auster’s book. It was named by The Comics Journal as one of the “Best Comics of the 20th Century” and has been translated in over 20 editions worldwide.
With his sister, Karasik created, The Ride Together, a Memoir of Autism in the Family, winner of the Autism Society of America’s “Best Literary Work of the Year” award. He also was the co-editor of Masters of American Comics, the coffee-table companion catalogue to the first major American exhibition of comics co-sponsored by the Hammer and MOCCA Museums, and his anthology celebrating forgotten comics visionary, Fletcher Hanks, received an Eisner Award, the highest honor in the field.
