Art Spiegelman - Die ​vollständige Maus
Die ​Geschichte von Maus veränderte über Nacht die Geschichte des Comic Strips – aus Kult wurde Kunst. Berichtet wird die authentische Lebensgeschichte des polnischen Juden Wladek Spiegelman. In Queens, New York, schildert er seinem Sohn die Stationen seines Lebens: Polen und Auschwitz, Stockholm und New York, er erzählt von der Rettung und vom Fluch des Überlebens. Art Spiegelman hat diese Geschichte aufgezeichnet, indem er das Unaussprechliche Tieren in dem Mund legt: Die Juden sind Mäuse, die Deutschen Katzen.

Art Spiegelman - The ​Complete Maus
At ​last! Here is the definitive edition of the book acclaimed as “the most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust” (Wall Street Journal) and “the first masterpiece in comic book history” (The New Yorker). It now appears as it was originally envisioned by the author: The Complete Maus. It is the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler’s Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his father’s story. Maus approaches the unspeakable through the diminutive. Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), shocks us out of any lingering sense of familiarity and succeeds in “drawing us closer to the bleak heart of the Holocaust” (The New York Times). Maus is a haunting tale within a tale. Vladek’s harrowing story of survival is woven into the author’s account of his tortured relationship with his aging father. Against the backdrop of guilt brought by survival, they stage a normal life of small arguments and unhappy visits. This astonishing retelling of our century’s grisliest news is a story of survival, not only of Vladek but of the children who survive even the survivors. Maus studies the bloody pawprints of history and tracks its meaning for all of us.

Art Spiegelman - MetaMaus
'Spiegelman ​has turned the exuberant fantasy of comics inside out by giving us the most incredible fantasy in comics' history: something that actually occurred. MAUS is terrifying not for its brutality, but for its tenderness and guilt' New Yorker MAUS is widely renowned as one of the greatest pieces of art and literature ever written about the Holocaust. It is adored by readers and studied in colleges and universities all over the world. But what led Art Spiegelman to tell his father's story in the first place? Why did he choose to depict the Jews as mice? How could a comic book confront the terror and brutality of the worst atrocity of the twentieth century? To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the book's first publication, MetaMAUS, prepared by the author, is a vital companion to the classic text and includes never-before-seen sketches, rough and alternate drafts, family and reference photos, notebook and diary entries and the transcript of his interviews with his father Vladek as well as a long interview with Art, in which he discusses the book's extraordinary history and origins.

Art Spiegelman - Maus: ​A Survivor's Tale - My Father Bleeds History
A ​story of a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe and his son, a cartoonist who tries to come to terms with his father's story and history itself.

Art Spiegelman - In ​the Shadow of No Towers
Catastrophic, ​world-altering events like the September 11 attacks on the United States place the millions of us who experience them on the "fault line where World History and Personal History collide." Most of us, however, cannot document that intersection with the force, compression, and poignancy expressed in Art Spiegelman's _In the Shadow of No Towers_. As in his Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus, cartoonist Spiegelman presents a highly personalized, political, and confessional diary of his experience of September 11 and its aftermath. In 10 large-scale pages of original, hard hitting material (composed from September 11, 2001 to August 31, 2003), two essays, and 10 old comic strip reproductions from the early 20th century, Spiegelman expresses his feelings of dislocation, grief, anxiety, and outrage over the horror of the attacks---and the subsequent "hijacking" of the event by the Bush administration to serve what he believes is a misguided and immoral political agenda. Readers who agree with Spiegelman's point of view will marvel at the brilliance of his images and the wit and accuracy of his commentary. Others, no doubt, will be jolted by his candor and, perhaps, be challenged to reexamine their position. The central image in the sequence of original broadsides, which returns as a leitmotif in each strip, is Spiegelman's Impressionistic "vision of disintegration," of the North Tower, its "glowing bones...just before it vaporized." (As downtown New Yorkers, Spiegelman and his family experienced the event firsthand.) But the images and styles in the book are as fragmentary and ever-shifting as Spiegelman's reflections and reactions. The author's closing comment that "The towers have come to loom far larger than life...but they seem to get smaller every day" reflects a larger and more chilling irony that permeates In the Shadow of No Towers. Despite the ephemeral nature of the comic strip form, the old comics at the back of the book have outlasted the seemingly indestructible towers. In the same way, Spiegelman's heartfelt impressions have immortalized the towers that, imponderably, have now vanished. --Silvana Tropea.

Art Spiegelman - Maus: ​A Survivor's Tale - And Here My Troubles Began
Acclaimed ​as a "quiet triumph"* and a "brutally moving work of art,"** the first volume of Art Spiegelman's Maus introduced readers to Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe, and his son, a cartoonist trying to come to terms with his father, his father's terrifying story, and History itself. Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), succeeds perfectly in shocking us out of any lingering sense of familiarity with the events described, approaching, as it does, the unspeakable through the diminutive. As the New York Times Book Review commented," [it is] a remarkable feat of documentary detail and novelistic vividness...an unfolding literary event." This long-awaited sequel, subtitled And Here My Troubles Began, moves us from the barracks of Auschwitz to the bungalows of the Catskills. Genuinely tragic and comic by turns, it attains a complexity of theme and a precision of thought new to comics and rare in any medium. Maus ties together two powerful stories: Vladek's harrowing tale of survival against all odds, delineating the paradox of daily life in the death camps, and the author's account of his tortured relationship with his aging father. Vladek's troubled remarriage, minor arguments between father and son, and life's everyday disappointments are all set against a backdrop of history too large to pacify. At every level this is the ultimate survivor's tale -- and that too of the children who somehow survive even the survivors. * Washington Post ** Boston Globe *** "Maus is a book that cannot be put down, truly, even to sleep. When two of the mice speak of love, you are moved, when they suffer, you weep. Slowly through this little tale comprised of suffering, humor and life's daily trials, you are captivated by the language of an old Eastern European family, and drawn into the gentle and mesmerizing rhythm, and when you finish Maus, you are unhappy to have left that magical world and long for the sequel that will return you to it." - Umberto Eco Art Spiegelman is co-founder/editor of _Raw_, the acclaimed magazine of avant-garde comics and graphics. His work has been published in the _New York Times_, _Playboy_, the _Village Voice_ and many other periodicals, and his drawings have been exhibited in museums and galleries here and abroad. Honors he has received for _Maus_ include a Guggenheim fellowship and nomination for the National Books Critics Circle Award. Mr. Spiegelman lives in New York City with his wife, Françoise Mouly and their daughter, Nadja.

Art Spiegelman - Maus ​- Egy túlélő regénye
Maus ​címmel különös képregény jelent meg 1986 őszén az amerikai könyvpiacon. Az első kiadást villámsebesen követte a második majd a harmadik is, ám az olvasók még fürgébbek voltak, elővétellel már a nyomdából "kaparintották meg" a művet. A comics hazájában szinte példátlan esemény, hogy egy képregény hiánycikké váljon. Pedig ez a képregény sem nem pornó, sem nem krimi - "csupán" egy túlélő vallomása. Főhőse egy lengyel származású zsidó, aki egy gazdag kereskedő lányát veszi el közvetlenül a II. világháború kirobbanása előtt. Lengyelország náci megszállása napról napra elviselhetetlenebbé teszi a fiatal pár életét, míg végül bekövetkezik a legszörnyűségesebb: a családot koncentrációs táborba hurcolják. A "túlélés" regényét az apa meséli el rajzoló fiának, annak az Art Spiegelmannak, aki a Raw comics magazin megalapításával forradalmasította a képregényipart, bebizonyítva, ennek a lenézett műfajnak is lehet művészi értéke. A Maus tartalmával és megformálásával együttesen nyűgöz le. A kelet-európai sorstragédia szívszorító történetét át- meg átszövi a jellegzetes zsidó humor és öngúny, s mindezt Spiegelman bravúros rajztudással varázsolja a papírra. A képregény szereplői is különlegesek: a zsidókat egérarccal, a nácikat macskapofával, a lengyeleket disznófejjel ábrázolja a művész. A Maus azóta is folytatja diadalútját, az összes világnyelven.

Art Spiegelman - A ​teljes Maus
"Ezek ​nem emberek!" Ha ez a gyűlölettel átitatott mondat egy állam ideológiájává válik, az minden esetben világméretű tragédiához vezet. A náci Németországban a goebbelsi propaganda elhitette az emberekkel, hogy bizonyos embertársaik alsóbbrendűek, akiket el kell pusztítani. E szörnyűséges, egész Európát érintő történelmi bűntett áldozatainak állít emléket Art Spiegelman Pulitzer-díjas képregénye, a _Maus_. A szereplők antropomorf állatok: egérfejű zsidók, macskafejű németek és kutyafejű amerikaiak. Az ő sorsukon keresztül ismerjük meg a holokauszt megrázó eseményeit és következményeit. A történet gerincét Spiegelman lengyel származású apjának magnószalagra rögzített visszaemlékezései alkotják, így a _Maus_ fikciós, önéletrajzi és dokumentumkötet egyben. Műfajteremtő, egyetemes érvényű irodalmi alkotás egy szégyenletes korszakról, mely nem merülhet feledésbe. Art Spiegelman képregényrajzoló, -író, szerkesztő. A _Maus_ eredetileg folytatásokban jelent meg az általa alapított Raw magazinban. Bár munkásságát a képregényes közösség már jóval előbb elismerte, a neve azután vált világszerte ismertté, hogy a _Maus_ 1992-ben - a képregény-irodalomban elsőként - Pulitzer-díjat kapott. Az eredetileg két kötetben, majd gyűjteményes formában is megjelent művet azóta több mint 30 nyelvre fordították le.
