The Ride Together, by Paul Karasik
The Ride Together

Upon graduating from Pratt Institute in 1981, Paul Karasik studied at the School of Visual Arts with cartoonists Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman and Art Spiegelman. He was Associate Editor of Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly's avantgarde international comics and graphics review, RAW. In addition he published his own magazine, Bad News.

In collaboration with artist David Mazzucchelli, he adapted Paul Auster's novel 'City of Glass' as a graphic novel. The graphic novel has been translated into French, Italian, German, Japanese, and Spanish, was named one of the best 100 comics of the century by Comics Journal. Karasik's cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker and Nickelodeon magazines. Together with his sister Judy Karasik, he created the autobiographical comic 'The Ride Together'. It is partly novel, partly comics, with art by Paul.

Karasik won an Eisner Award in 2008 for his anthology of comics by Fletcher Hanks, 'I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets'. A second volume of Hanks' work, 'You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation' (Fantagraphics, 2009), when combined with the first will comprise the Complete Fletcher Hanks. He has written introductory material on Will Eisner, Milt Gross, E.O. Plauen, Suiho Tagawa, and Yuichi Yokoyama for various books and publications.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
