The Art Gallery of Ontario is presenting Art Spiegelman’s CO-MIX: A Retrospective from December 20, 2014 to March 15, 2015. Spiegelman is best known for Maus for which he won a Pulitzer Award. Maus is a two volume graphic novel which details how his parents survived in Nazi concentration camps. In Maus, the Jews are drawn as mice.

Other themes that spring to mind when discussing the creative cartoonist who as you might guess is one of the best draughtsmen working today include the hard-boiled detective genre, politics and Cubism. The exhibition consists of more than 300 works on paper ranging from trading cards to magazine covers.
