The artistic choices Art Spiegelman made in his graphic novel, Maus, are the focus of an exercise that asks class members to compare classic comic book forms with Spiegelman’s panels and frames. Directed to specific pages and guided by a series of questions, readers analyze the artwork panel by panel, and develop hypotheses about the author’s intent. The approach reveals the power of the images in this Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novel.
