Art: Appreciating Art Spiegelman, Creater of “Maus” & Plenty More

The front page of today’s New York Times Arts & Leisure section includes a wonderful overview of the artist Art Spiegelman, who is best know for his graphic novel, “Maus.”

“It’s a landmark, the greatest graphic novel ever drawn,” Chris Ware tells the Times. “What makes it so special is not just the comics, not just the Holocaust, but that it’s an incredibly good, human book.”

A retrospective of Spiegelman’s work opens at the Jewish Museum in Manhattan on Nov. 8, 2013.

Head over to the New York Times to read about Spiegelman.
