Risk Taking Researcher
On this graphic novel, I felt like the author was really incorporated into the story, not only because I saw its last name mentioned several times in the book, but I also see references about him. Due to that I decided to research on it. So what I found was born Itzhak Avraham ben Zeev on February 15, 1948. He was a comic strip writer, but then he started working on very long comic books, about his father's experience as a Holocaust survivor. On the book Maus, he makes Nazis as Cats, Jews as Mice, and ethnic Poles as pigs. He took thirteen years to complete the book, so he finished it in 1991.
Now that I knew a little bit more about the author, I wanted to know more about the book, so I researched about the book. So on the book it is the story about Spiegelman interviewing his father on how he had survived the Holocaust. Also, Maus was described as a mix of many different genres. The story also revolves around his relationship with his father. The story also depicts to the part since before the World War II. before Maus was a three page strip in 1972, but now it has been developed into a whole book.
