Art Spiegelman was born in 1948 and has been a cartoonist since he was ateenager. In 1992 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his creation of the two-volume classic comic book Maus published in 1986 and 1991. Maus has since been published in twenty different languages. In November of1992, Spiegelman became a contributing editor and artist for the New Yorker magazine and his work has appeared on many of the covers since then. Since the bombing of the World Trade Towers, Spiegelman has been working on a new project about the atrocity. Two months ago he resigned from the New Yorker in protest at the US media’s coverage of the war on terror.
