“HARVEY PEKAR’S CLEVELAND,” will be available in March. Brash, honest, humble and humane, Harvey Pekar is worthy of being a hero. He’s my hero. “Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland” is one of his last great graphic novels and tells the story of his hometown, the city he loved, Cleveland.
My first look at American Splendor was the first collection, American Splendor: The Life and Times of Harvey Pekar, 1986. That was a breakthrough in comics as it easily became a staple in mainstream bookstores. By 1986, Harvey was already pretty well known through his appearances on “Latenight with David Letterman.”
That book is still around and fairly easy to find. You could pick up a copy through Amazon.
