Maus I & II Paperback Box Set Summary

Maus I & II Paperback Box Set by Art Spiegelman

A SPECIAL-EDITION BOXSET CREATED TO CELEBRATE THE PULITZER-PRIZE WINNING GRAPHIC NOVEL'S 40TH ANNIVERSARY

'The first masterpiece in comic book history' The New Yorker

'The most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust' Wall Street Journal

A brutally moving work of art -- widely hailed as the greatest graphic novel ever written -- MAUS recounts the chilling experiences of the author's father during the Holocaust, with Jews drawn as wide-eyed mice and Nazis as menacing cats.

Maus is a haunting tale within a tale, weaving the author's account of his tortured relationship with his aging father into an astonishing retelling of one of history's most unspeakable tragedies. It is an unforgettable story of survival and a disarming look at the legacy of trauma.

This paperback box set includes MAUS in its original two-volume format, re-released with an exclusive sixteen-page booklet designed by the artist himself.

Maus I & II Paperback Box Set Reviews

No summary can do justice to Spiegelman's narrative skill -- Adam Gopnik
Since its first publication in 1987, Maus has achieved a celebrity that few other comics have ever done...if the notion of a canon means anything, Maus is there at the heart of it. Like all great stories, it tells us more about ourselves than we could ever suspect -- Philip Pullman
A capital-G Genius -- Michael Chabon
