Review by Jennifer Stubbs: Will Eisner coined the term “sequential art” to describe this type of work. Graphic Novels are a visual medium for any genre of writing. They are not necessarily children’s books—for example, MAUS. This is a novelization/biography of the author’s father, a survivor of Auschwitz. Told in black & white pen drawings, the story illustrates many of the events before and during WWII. If you know a high school or college student that has trouble reading about the Holocaust, MAUS might be a very useful alternative. I found the accents from New York stuck in my head.
