    American Splendor Unsung Hero TPB (2003 Dark Horse) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Collects American Splendor: Unsung Hero (2002) #1-3. Written by Harvey Pekar. Art by David Collier. Few authors are able to capture an honest snapshot of everyday life the way Harvey Pekar can. From ruminations on jazz musicians to back problems and traffic tickets, Pekar writes in a clear, unsentimental voice that not only explores the mundane, but celebrates it as well. This time out, Pekar focuses his sharp literary eye on Robert McNeill, an ordinary man who's lived an extraordinary life. McNeill recounts his time spent as a G.I. in Vietnam, on a tour through that surreal and horrific landscape that even now, thirty years later, we're struggling to define. Unsung Hero is a tale of cynicism and endurance, tempered by McNeill's distinct sense of humor and Pekar's touching wit. American Splendor: Unsung Hero is the first Dark Horse collection from the long-running comic-book series that inspired the upcoming American Splendor feature film! The film version of American Splendor won the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival and has earned both critical and popular acclaim! Softcover, 80 pages, full color. Cover price $11.95.
