The Complete Maus tells the story of author Art Spiegelman working on the comic based on his father Vladek's life. Most of the story revolves around Art interviewing Vladek about his life before the war, and his experience during the holocaust. The parts about Vladek describing the atrocities of the holocaust were very interesting but the parts I really enjoyed were Art just showing how his dad was a real person not just a victim. Maus is a great graphic novel that revolves mainly around the holocaust but Vladek being such a complex interesting character is its main selling point.
A son struggles to come to terms with the horrific story of his parents and their experiences during the Holocaust and in postwar America, in an omnibus edition of Spiegelman's two-part, Pulitzer Prize-winning best-seller. 25,000 first printing.
