Kafka’s literary expression of the comic side of life as a protection from existential threats attracted world-wide a great number of comic artists to his texts. Kafka himself resorted to visualization by drawing caricatures in simple lines when language failed. The relationship between literature and comics is addressed by Nicolas Mahler in his Franz Kafkas nonstop Lachmaschine. In this comic book, people’s vague knowledge of Kafka as well as academic approaches to his works are satirized. A brief survey of a number of Kafka comics—such as the biography Kafka, Der Process and Das Schloss—exemplify the different styles of adaptation. A detailed analysis of Moritz Stetter’s comic adaptation Das Urteil nach Franz Kafka follows. A focus on the central tree metaphor in this book illustrates that comic art has opened new artistic dimensions, which may lead to a better understanding of Kafka and bring his texts closer to a new generation.
