About the Author

Born in Stockholm in 1948, Art Spiegelman was the first comics artist to win the Pulitzer Prize, which he received for his groundbreaking bestseller Maus. He coedited Raw, and his comics have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Playboy, and Harper's. He has been named one of the 100 Most Influential People by Time, elected to the Art Director Club's Hall of Fame, made a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2005 (promoted to Officier in 2012), and played himself on The Simpsons. In 2011, Spiegelman was elected president of the Angoulême International Comics Festival and was awarded the Grand Prix of the Festival. He lives in New York City.

Reviews

"A classic of a different kind - by which I mean that I am declaring it to be a classic right here and now - is Co-Mix, a "retrospective" of comics, graphics and "scraps" by Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Maus. Among the collectors' items gathered within are full-page reproductions of covers for Robert Crumb's Short Order Comix; a full-size insert of the long out of print Raw comic Two-Fisted Painters; and Spiegelman's peerlessly brilliant New Yorker strips about Maurice Sendak and - my favourite - Charles Schulz. The ultimate swank present for any completist Spiegelman fan." --Guardian Graphic Books of the Year Review

"Exploring the breadth of his work, [Co-Mix] shows that, perhaps more than any other single artist, Spiegelman has energized the range of emotional possibility in comics." --San Francisco Weekly

"As [Co-Mix] makes clear, Spiegelman's only true comics peer is Robert Crumb." --The Montreal Gazette

"What's refreshing about Co-Mix is the level to which it demonstrates Art's diversity. While many retrospective publications like to show off just the one creative direction, this revels in the frenetic intellectual talent that produced the graphic novel's finest example." --It's Nice That
