WARNING: SEXUALLY EXPLICIT DRAWINGS. I enjoyed Maus, and this gives you an insight into Spiegelman's mind, however I thought people should be warned that this is not a book of "comics".

Art Spiegelman is more than a 'cartoonist,' he's an artist and an incredible storyteller. In "Breakdowns" he takes you on a visually stunning and, at times, confusing journey of a few pivotal years of his life. To be devoured slowly, each frame in this book is a piece of art.
