If you are a fan of graphic novels and aint familiar with this; well, quite frankly - get familiar with it. Puts most other books (and not just graphic novels) into the shade. Simply stunning book.

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.

Work of art.

I love this book, but this doesn't seem like that good a deal. I'm sure I only paid a fiver for it.

Update: I tell a lie, I paid £10.49 for it! Voted Hot.

on my list to read, I think I have seen it for £10 but this is a good deal.

Does anyone know if it is better in Hardcover, as Watchmen is ?

Absolutely outstanding read.

HOT

You imagine hardbacks to last longer than softbacks, but with comic books, sometimes the spines are weak and the book comes away from it. Very annoying. If you don't open softback comics too wide (causing irreversible damage to the spine) they seem to last better than hardbacks.

this is an unbelievable 'comic' and everyone should read this!

Been meaning to get the two books since I read a friends. Ordered and voted.

Great read. Hot.

Thanks Andywedge - I have heard of Maus, but not read it yet. Just ordered.

If you like to read more thoughtful graphic novels such as this, you might want to try Persepolis. I have just posted it as a deal also, as it has been reduced to £4.89 @ Amazon (RRP is £7.99)

The printing of Maus should be identical between the hardcover and softcover; Watchmen is pretty much a special case where it had a bit of restoration done for the newer printing of the hardcover version, probably based off the work done for the Absolute version (which in turn is far better than the standard hardcover). Furthermore, Maus is printed in black and white, so the colours will be about as vibrant in both editions :thumbsup:

The Absolute editions are damn expensive, but I wouldn't trade my Absolute Sandman set for anything - it's my all-time favourite thing. Anyways, back on topic, good price for an amazing book. Hot!

Felinophobic propaganda! Don't buy this sick filth.

I paid £5.95 for this... granted it was 1987 (and it was only part one)

And I suppose you think this was photoshopped huh? You people make me sick :x

Not really. I would imagine it's traditional pen and ink. The use of Photoshop was not as prevailant in the early eighties as it is now - certainly not in 1972 as your example, what with it not having been invented an' all. But I understand that it is used extensively in producing graphic novel artwork these days.

You have to admit the cats do get a pretty raw deal in Maus. I know lots of cats, and yes, they can be kind of arrogant but I've never seen any of them use weaponry, let alone take part in systematic genocide. Bet Art Spiegelman is a dog person.

You people make me sick


Brilliant!

I started reading it yesterday, so far very well written with interesting characters.
