Just spotted this whilst browsing Forbidden Planet and was a bit taken aback. This isn't just one of THE greatest graphic novels of all time it's one of the greatest books of all time. And this edition is signed by the creator Art Speigelman. To me, that is utterly priceless. I'd be gobsmacked, if in a few years, this wasn't worth waaaaaaaay more than the £16.99 asking price.
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.
