Item Details

***NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD WINNER*** Visually and emotionally rich, MetaMaus is as groundbreaking as the masterpiece whose creation it reveals. nbsp; In the pages of MetaMaus , Art Spiegelman re-enters the Pulitzer prize-winning Maus , the modern classic that has altered how we see literature, comics, and the Holocaust ever since it was first published twenty-five years ago. nbsp; He probes the questions that Maus most often evokes--Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics?--and gives us a new and essential work about the creative process. nbsp; MetaMaus includes a bonus DVD-R that provides a digitized reference copy of The Complete Maus linked to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman's private notebooks and sketches. nbsp; Compelling and intimate, MetaMaus is poised to become a classic in its own right.

I didn't even delve into the supplemental materials, but what a trove of information for the comics fan who appreciates insight into process.

"Maus, a two-volume graphic novel about the Holocaust, remains one of the seminal works of the genre, reaching readers who hadn’t read a comic book since childhood. Here, he delivers a companion volume, including DVD, that re-examines some of the issues raised by the original books."
