MAUS: Spiegelman & Mouly
Art Spiegelman and his wife Francoise Mouly, creators of the now defunct Raw graffix magazine spoke tonight at the Herbst Theater. Spiegelman is best known for Maus- a graphic novel memoir documenting his father's experiences in Auschwitz. Spiegelman's work received a Pulitzer Prize and was my first experience with a graphic novel. Even the most traditional institutions agree that Maus legitimizes the graphic novel as a complex and full medium. This is the real deal.
