In my essay I will look at Paul Auster’s first novella from The New York Trilogy adapted into graphic novel: City of Glass: The Graphic Novel (1994) by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, and I will analyze the ways in which the graphic novel (re)presents Auster’s prevalent themes in new, unique ways, through utilizing comics’ conventions and graphic storytelling methods. I will argue that visual/literal intertextuality and/or intermediality are thematized in the graphic novel’s text through character doublings and (narrative) identity shifts. My intention is to discuss the ways in which one medial component interprets or even imitates the elements of another medium, making use of the concepts of plurimediality and of media combination.
