"A Fable of the Holocaust"

"A Fable of the Holocaust," by Lawrence Langer. New York Times, November 3, 1991.
Art Spiegelman doesn't draw comics. It might be clever to say he draws tragics, but that would be inaccurate too. Like its predecessor, "Maus: A Survivor's Tale II. And Here My Troubles Began" is a serious form of pictorial literature, sustaining and even intensifying the power of the first volume. It resists defining labels.
