Details

Cleveland native Harvey Pekar is a true American original. A comic book writer and V.A. hospital file clerk, Harvey chronicles the ordinary and mundane in stories both funny and touching. His dead-on eye for the frustrations and minutiae of the workaday world mix in a delicate balance with his insight into personal relationships. Pekar has been compared to Dreiser, Dostoevsky, and Lenny Bruce. But he is truly more than all of them - he is himself.

With art by R. Crumb, Kevin Brown, Gregory Budgett, Sean Carroll, Sue Cavey, Gary Dumm, Val Mayerik, and Gerry Shamray.
