“The most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust.”
—The Wall Street Journal
"The first masterpiece in comic book history.”
—The New Yorker
“A loving documentary and brutal fable, a mix of compassion and stoicism [that] sums up the experience of the Holocaust with as much power and as little pretension as any other work I can think of.”
—The New Republic
“A quiet triumph, moving and simple—impossible to describe accurately, and impossible to achieve in any medium but comics.”
—The Washington Post
“Spiegelman has turned the exuberant fantasy of comics inside out by giving us the most incredible fantasy in comics’ history: something that actually occurred . . . The central relationship is not that of cat and mouse, but that of Art and Vladek. Maus is terrifying not for its brutality, but for its tenderness and guilt.”
—The New Yorker
“All too infrequently, a book comes along that’s as daring as it is acclaimed. Art Spiegelman’s Maus is just such a book.”
“An epic story told in tiny pictures.”
—The New York Times
“A remarkable work, awesome in its conception and execution . . . at one and the same time a novel, a documentary, a memoir, and a comic book. Brilliant, just brilliant.”

Heartbreakingly good read. The story of the writer and his father is both uncomfortable and genuinely upsetting at the same time. A must read.Published 10 months ago by Simon Shead

Art Spiegelman is a great graphic artist and a talented storyteller. How ingenious it is to tell a story about the Holocaust by portraying the Jews as mice and the Nazis as cats.Published 19 months ago by Imran Khan
