I haven't seen this newly reissied (07/05/2020) boxset of the excellent Maus I & II this cheap. Elsewhere it seems to be £20+ still. If you are in any way into graphic novels and you aren't familiar with Maus then go treat yourself. And this boxset of both books does look nice too.
The paperback boxed set of the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel in its original two-volume format re-released to include a sixteen-page booklet designed by the artist. Acclaimed as "the most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust" (Wall Street Journal), Maus is considered "the first masterpiece in comic book history" (The New Yorker).
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

I've got a first edition of Maus. I wonder if it's worth anything?

Other than what I paid for it.

Good read
I'm on a comic kick right now and this is on the usual must read lists so might as well take a punt, cheers.
I've already got The Complete Maus, but this is a very nice set too.... Aarrrgh... the economic impact of Brexvid, dammit...
Wow that's a beautiful set of an all time classic. Nice.
The only thing that worries me a touch is that the single video I've seen on this set shows that the actual paperback books do not line up correctly, it might drive me a bit mad it that's the case Oh well, 14gbp not as bad as buying an out of print omnibus for double the price
One of the greatest graphic novels ever produced; Maus pushed the boundaries of what the medium could produce.Highest possible recommendation.

If you liked Maus, I would suggest taking a look at the graphic novels by Joe Sacco.
Thanks OP. Heat 🔥

That's what I thought. No, nothing at all since ordering. It was still available earlier too but isn't now. I'll drop them a message and see what they say, if not it's 50p cheaper on eBay and I'm not in a rush
Woeful service from this website, had to send an email yesterday after the order had not been dispatched after 9 days. Got a reply saying it's been despatched but still no despatch email sent. I'll stick to other sellers In future.
Received the email a couple days ago and got the book today. Ordered a couple books over the last couple of months and the service has been just the same as with any other book seller.
I got charged again yesterday, and then got a dispatch e-mail, I'll see if anything turns up now. It's very odd.
