Spiegelman got his early start at the Topps Gum Co., where he drew novelty cards, stickers and candy packages, including those madcap Garbage Pail Kids. He co-founded the politically charged comic magazine Raw in 1980, and published the first of his two Maus books in 1986. Now Art Spiegelman has just completed a year-long series on New York, post 9-11, and is editing a remarkable and challenging new series of children's comic books.
