There is a special place in my heart for Kafka comics. If you think you may be similarly inclined, check out The Metamorphosis and The Trial and then check out this absolute gem over at The Modern World;
“A Little Fable” (“Kleine Fabel,” in the original German) is a paragraph-long short story masterpiece by Kafka. I ran across a wonderful mini-comic adaptation of it by the American comic book artist Vincent Stall around 2004. I contacted Vincent, who graciously allowed us to re-publish the comic online here at The Modern Word. I was planning to post it when Vincent’s graphic novel, Brass Tack, was to be published, but when Brass Tack got delayed this somehow fell through the cracks, as well. Finally, again with Vincent’s blessing, we present this adaptation to you.
