Description

Breakdowns is the chronicle of Spiegelman’s story, featuring vignettes of the people, events, and comics that shaped him. It is told in three ways—in 20 pages of comix that give us the story of his rebellious adolescence, a section on the work he did in the 1970s as an underground comix artist, and an 8-page essay in which Art looks at the role of comics in the 1970s and how, in ways he didn’t understand until much later, it was already coalescing into a medium whose resurgence now is evident everywhere.
