This game works with: Basilisk II,

Art Spiegelman, wanting to record his father's (Vladek Spiegelman) history as a graphic novel, conducts a series of interviews with him over several years. Vladek tells how German policy towards Jews slowly changed in the late 1930s, and how his well-to-do family came to suffer penury, persecution, and loss of life. Vladek tried to make the most of difficult situations in Radomsko, Częstochowa, Sosnowiec, and Bielsko. Eventually, he was sent to Auschwitz as a prisoner.

For Mac OS 7 to 8

Between interviews, the novel records the contemporary (1970s-1980s) life of the Spiegelman family in the Rego Park neighborhood of New York City. In particular, it depicts Vladek's difficult personality and Art's attempt to make sense of it. He is exceedingly stingy and makes life very difficult for his first wife Anja (Art's mother, a concentration camp survivor who committed suicide) and his second wife Mala (also a concentration camp survivor). Art contrasts the contemporary Vladek with the historical Vladek, whom he only knows indirectly through his research. He also points out that while Vladek was himself a victim of bigotry that he was known to hold bigoted views against African Americans and homosexuals himself. He comments about the difficulties of presenting Vladek's story accurately. (Wikipedia) Book link: The Complete Maus: A Survivor's Tale [Hardcover]

A classic. I've read both books a bunch of times. All of the extras make this fantastic.

BII with 8.0 seems to work well, SheepShaver does not run Maus properly with 7.6 to 9.0.

If a German would pronounce that location as "Mauschwitz", he would be jailed for 10 years minimum.

Could someone please check this with Mac OS 8 on Basilisk and SheepShaver, especially with Mac OS 9, too? My configuration won't show pictures in Mac OS 9.
