I've just finished reading Volume I
and Volume II
of a classic graphic novel called Maus: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman.
For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically about a son asking his father to tell him how he escaped capture from the Nazis. The most significant thing about this book is that the Jews are portrayed as anthropomorphised mice while the Nazis are portrayed as anthromorphised cats (other animals portray other nations' citizens but there are too many to list). Despite the cat and mouse concept, the entire story is true (including the parts with Art and his father Vladek and the events that unfold around them). It's a very interesting story, and I highly suggest this to anyone who is interested with War History or just wants to find a new graphic novel to read.
If there is anyone in the forums who has read Maus, I'd be very interested to hear their opinions and what they think about this literary work.
