Out of all the graphic novels we have read in class so far I would say that this one easily has the simplest drawings. All the characters have the same shaped head with no strong facial features except for mustaches and beards on the men and a few characters with different colored hair. This threw me off at some points because I could not tell who was who in the book. Unlike Maus there are not many pictures of brutality going on. After reading Maus it was good to not have to see so much of this but if I were to have not read Maus i wonder if I having more visual scenes of the demonstrations would have got the point across better about how bad things really were.
