In 2006, comics legend Harvey Pekar brought his unflinching tales of ordinary life to Vertigo with an all-new run of American Splendor, the comic that, 30 years earlier, rose “from the streets of Cleveland” and changed how we look at comics. Often imitated but never duplicated, Pekar proved that he still has the power to “make mundane reality seem like the highest drama” (Entertainment Weekly) in his critically acclaimed Vertigo series.
Now, Harvey Pekar is back with an all-new volume of American Splendor, featuring his funniest, most poignant, somber and uplifting stories from the complex life of an ordinary man.
Once again, American Splendor pairs Harvey with some of the most exciting, innovative artists currently in comics, including David Lapham (Young Liars, Stray Bullets), Darick Robertson (The Boys), Chris Weston (The Filth, Fantastic Four), Dean Haspiel (The Quitter, The Alcoholic), Warren Pleece (Incognegro), longtime Pekar collaborators Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm, and other luminaries from both the mainstream and indie worlds.
