--The Wall Street Journal
"The first masterpiece in comic book history."
--The New Yorker "A loving documentary and brutal fable, a mix of compassion and stoicism [that] sums up the experience of the Holocaust with as much power and as little pretension as any other work I can think of."
--The New Republic "A quiet triumph, moving and simple--impossible to describe accurately, and impossible to achieve in any medium but comics."
--The Washington Post "Spiegelman has turned the exuberant fantasy of comics inside out by giving us the most incredible fantasy in comics' history: something that actually occurred . . . The central relationship is not that of cat and mouse, but that of Art and Vladek. Maus is terrifying not for its brutality, but for its tenderness and guilt."
--The New Yorker "All too infrequently, a book comes along that's as daring as it is acclaimed. Art Spiegelman's Maus is just such a book."
--Esquire "An epic story told in tiny pictures."
--The New York Times "A remarkable work, awesome in its conception and execution . . . at one and the same time a novel, a documentary, a memoir, and a comic book. Brilliant, just brilliant."
