THE FIRST PRINTINGS OF THE FIRST 8 ISSUES OF RAW, A GROUNDBREAKING WORK IN THE TRANSFORMATION OF COMIC BOOKS INTO "GRAPHIC NOVELS" INTENDED FOR ADULTS, AND CONTAINING MAUS, THE FIRST GRAPHIC NOVEL TO WIN THE PULITZER PRIZE. MAUS is a postmodern tale of the Holocaust. It depicts Spiegelman interviewing his father about his experiences as a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor. The work employs postmodernist techniques and represents Jews as mice, Germans as cats, and Poles as pigs. Critics have classified MAUS as memoir, biography, history, fiction, autobiography, or a mix of genres. MAUS came to mainstream attention in 1986 when Pantheon published a collected volume of the first six chapters, all of which are contained here in their first and original appearance in print. This collection also contains the first installment of what would later be published in book form as MAUS II. RAW was a comics anthology edited by Art Spiegelman and Fran├žoise Mouly and published by Mouly from 1980 to 1991. It was a flagship publication of the 1980s alternative comics movement, serving as a more intellectual counterpoint to Robert Crumb's visceral Weirdo.
