Staff Reviews

The first graphic novel to win a Pulitzer Prize, Maus is an epic story. The framing narrative tells of Spiegelman's attempt to reconnect with his father Vladek, an Auschwitz survivor. Embedded within is Vladek's story of Nazi occupation and the horrors of Auschwitz. Maus is by turns honest, moving, comical, and brutal. Spiegelman's sketchy drawing style evokes a personal form of storytelling, and his use of animals to represent race does not trivialize but rather enhances our empathy for the main characters. Whether you are new to comics or a long time comic book readerMaus is a seminal work.
