His name is Yossel. In another time, in another place, this 15 year-old boy could have grown to be a great artist. But in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II, Yossel, a Jew is an "untermensch" and thus has no rights - and no future. This is his story, as told through his sketches.

This case study of the effects of war is done in pencils. It is war storytelling with a heart.
It would seem this graphic novel was Kubert's sketches and rough drafts. However, as he explains "This book is pencil rendering, rather than inked drawings". This is Kurbert, the artist and storyteller at work..This is his Maus (see the review).., It has power from his pencil drawing. I would stack this against any other war graphic novel from the Nam, Kubert's Sgt, Rock: Between A Rock and a Hard Place (see the review) to Maus as this is one of the best War fiction books
With such power, you would be foolish not to read this and see for yourself

This is basically what a graphic novel is SUPPOSED to be. A great story told through both pictures and words. It's also a heart-wrenching view into a very sad time and place in our history. Normally, I'd say that being a comic book fan would create a bias towards a graphic novel. This is not your average comic book/graphic novel. This is an amazing tale of heroism and sadness told through words and images. If you care at all about good, heartfelt storytelling, then you should purchase this Graphic Novel. It will not disappoint...
The story is narrated by Yossel, and the captions are very moving; but the phenomenal illustrations is where the story really shines. Kubert opted to use only pencils to tell this story and the result is magnificent. The rough sketches help to establish a dour, dark tone and really add to the level of realism.
"Yossel" is highly recomended for people with an interest in WWII or the Holocaust, fans of movies such as "The Pianist", or anyone looking for a powerful, moving work of art.
