MAUS (#1-2) by Art Spiegelman – Comic review (Spoiler-free)

I read this book in one-sitting because I couldn’t put it down.

Title: Maus the complete MAUS (Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale and Maus II– And Here My Troubles Began)

15195Summary: Combined for the first time here are Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale and Maus II – the complete story of Vladek Spiegelman and his wife, living and surviving in Hitler’s Europe. By addressing the horror of the Holocaust through cartoons, the author captures the everyday reality of fear and is able to explore the guilt, relief and extraordinary sensation of survival – and how the children of survivors are in their own way affected by the trials of their parents. A contemporary classic of immeasurable significance. (Goodreads)
