A classic--gorgeously done, and a stellar example of how the graphic format can add more than "just pictures" to a story. You'll also want MAUS II: And Here My Troubles Began.

In Maus, Art Spiegelman illustrates his father Vladek’s story -- of growing up as a Jew in Poland, persecuted and eventually captured and sent to Auschwitz during WWII. While portraying tragedy, Maus also manages to have a certain amount of beauty and humor, due partly to the various types of characters being rendered as different animals (e.g. Jews are drawn as mice, Germans as cats, Poles as pigs, etc.). Whenever Vladek and his wife attempt to pass as Poles, they are charmingly drawn wearing pig masks. The scenes portraying Art’s relationship with his father are touching and feel very authentic. I’m looking forward to reading Maus II.

In Maus II, Art Spiegelman continues his father’s horrific story of persecution and imprisonment in Auschwitz during WWII. Mr. Spiegelman has an enviable talent for simple drawings that convey complex ideas and feelings. Scenes with his father seem all too real – both amusing and a bit sad. Great series, I’d recommend it to anyone.
