    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young %A terrific book that chronicles Spiegelman's coming of age amidst a jewish upbringing condemned to neurotic blame and guilt put on by the holocaust it's a declaration of how he arrived to be a comic book artist his father exclaiming you have to use what little space you have to pack inside everything you canone suitcasein case the Nazis cometo everything you can in a tiny graphic suare he is an experimental concept artist exploring the implications of the frame of making victims into mice of putting Picasso and pornography in the same frame and letting a baby read Kafka as his mother contemplates suicide He is trying to elicit a n

    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young %Well if nothing else this book makes clear to those not already aware of it what a high opinion Spiegelman has of himself Not that it's entirely unjustified of course; he is a master of comics techniue as is abundantly evident here He's also an impressive stylist capable both of striking images in his own style and excellent pastiche work of various figures not to mention cunning use of collage But he also comes across as pretty consistently impressed wit

    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young %As others have discussed “Prisoner on Hell Planet” and the original 3 page “Maus” are good The stylistic variety is uite impressive and I found the German Expressionist style chilling I also found this book interesting when it came to better understanding some of the history around comics production and censorshipHowever outside of these two comics I felt like most of these strips felt like pretentious meditations on what makes art “good art” vs “bad art” and I felt like Spiegelman which he even addresses in his afterward was trying deliberately to redefine what “good art” was rather than to use subversive forms to fit the narratives he was trying to tellA lot of the experimentation in t

    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns was Spiegelman's first book put out in 1977 so this is a new edition of some old material Spiegelman however does a new comic book introduction which is half as long as the original Breakdowns so there's also plenty of new material The best strips are the original three page Maus and the classic Hell Planet strip that appears in the famous novel length version of Maus Most of the other strips are creative and formal experiments and stylistic exercises They're not engaging on a narrative level but Spiegelman uses the medium in very impressive ways his style is very elastic and allows him to play at noir illustrate with a heavier

    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young %I'd recommend this to two groups of people Spiegelman fans and Comics Are An Art Form people Happily I am both so I enjoyed it uite a bit It showcases primarily Spiegelman's early work much of which is very in your face with the I am a man who has just learned I can draw boobies and get money for it sort of shock value mentality That said this is worth picking up just for Prisoner from a Hell Planet Day at the Circuits and of course the original Maus piece It is a GORGEOUS book at its size

    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young %This is a book that has completely changed my perspective not just of comics but the world altogether I'm not raving about Art Spiegelman being a genius which he uncontrollably is but about the way this book has articulated his journey from one point in his life a disillusioned artist to another a self aware even if arguably still disillusioned artistBreakdowns is in every definition of the word exactly what it means

    Characters ↠ Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young % Breakdowns Portrait of the Artist as a Young %I’ll say to each their own but I found the comic strips well stupid Think in terms of shock value and humorless Or at least that’s my take I did manage to stick around for the author’s very long rambling of an afterword Maybe I was too stuck in what I’d read in the comics but I just didn’t care to read his life story or rationalizations for his writing “medium” as he calls it I h
