Issue Notes

Published at or about the same time as the hardcover edition.

The printing with the January 1992 print date was used to index this issue.

The first edition of this was simply titled "Maus: A Survivor's Tale." The issue title "My Father Bleeds History" wasn't included in the cover or title page until at some (to be determined) printing in the future.

There have been various UPC and ISBN (13 digit) numbers assigned to this over the years, not to mention different prices.
This issue has variants:
