Art Spiegelman's Tribute to Maurice Sendak

I found this hilarious visual tribute in School Library Journal in an article by Elizabeth Bird in which she describes the comic panel as "cheeky"! "I've no doubt," she says "[Sendak] would have loved it." 

The Spiegelman comic is a visual take on this page-spread from Sendak's In the Night Kitchen (1970)

Art Spiegelman (born Itzhak Avraham ben Zeev in 1948) is New-York-based comics artist, editor, and advocate for the medium of comics, best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning comic memoir,  Maus.
