Editor’s note: Artist and writer Sholem Krishtalka’s A Berlin Diary began as a sort of graphic novel in storyboards on Hazlitt in 2014 (Krishtalka describes it as a “foreign film about a queer Canadian in Berlin”). The project continues on Krishtalka’s blog and has also appeared as an exhibition. Frankie No One investigates the work here in a graphic review.
