MAUS

Maus Art Spiegelman’s Maus is ranked second in a list of the “25 most powerful books of the last 25 years” by Mental Floss, a bimonthly magazine specializing in fascinating trivia, like this: “The Maus Volume One book cover, which depicts two mice cowering beneath a swastika, has sparked some unexpected controversy. When the cover was used as the official poster for a major comics convention in Germany, police seized the artwork, citing a law that forbids the ‘glorification of Nazi propaganda.’” Maus is on the list because, as you must know, it “made the graphic novel a legitimate art form.”
