Gearbox: Day 1

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman 5/5
The story of a small person in the holocaust played out using animals. 
I like how he used the Jews and mice and the cats as Nazis. It was clever to use animals instead of humans because it put a different perspective on how you would normally see them. I also liked how it skipped from the guy’s story to the author trying to get the story from his father. It was daring for him to create it as a comic book.

A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz 4/5
The story of Hansel and Gretel retold in a gruesome and bloody way.
I liked how it took the classic fairy tale and added humor. He split up the entire story into a couple of different section and ended and restarted them in multiple ways. He added humor to try to lighten up the story.
