    American Splendor (2008 Volume 2) 1

    Written by Harvey Pekar Art by David Lapham, Chris Weston, Dean Haspiel, Hilary Barta, John Lucas, Zachary Baldus and Ed Piskor Cover by Philip Bond In 2006, comics legend Harvey Pekar brought his unsparing 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 series of AMERICAN SPLENDOR, featuring his funniest, most poignant, somber and uplifting stories from the complex life of an ordinary man. Once again, the Vertigo AMERICAN SPLENDOR pairs Harvey with some of the most exciting, innovative artists currently in comics, including in this special premiere issue, David Lapham (YOUNG LIARS, Stray Bullets), Chris Weston (THE FILTH, Fantastic Four), Dean Haspiel (THE QUITTER, Brawl), Mike Hawthorne (THE UN-MEN, Queen and Country), John Lucas (THE EXTERMINATORS) and other luminaries from both the mainstream and indie worlds. In this issue, they join Harvey to chronicle his battles with stubborn sofas, short sighted magazine writers, treacherous front doorsteps and many more obstacles for Harvey to overcome in his pursuit of a fulfilling and meaningful existence. 'Pekar's ability to find the exceptional in the everyday has matured and blossomed over time.' - Publisher's Weekly On sale April 2 ? 1 of 4 ? 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US MATURE READERS Cover price $2.99.

    American Splendor (2006 DC) 1

    Written by Harvey Pekar Art by Dean Haspiel, Ty Templeton, Hilary Barta, Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm Cover by Glenn Fabry Following the success of his critically praised, top-selling graphic novel THE QUITTER, Harvey Pekar returns to Vertigo with an all-new 4-issue AMERICAN SPLENDOR miniseries, celebrating 30 years of the series that first showed how, as Harvey says, "ordinary life can be pretty complex stuff." First appearing in 1976, AMERICAN SPLENDOR rose "from the streets of Cleveland" to change the way comics readers and creators viewed the potential of their medium. The series won an American Book Award and became an Oscar-nominated film. In Vertigo's AMERICAN SPLENDOR, Harvey is joined by an all-star roster of artists from both indie and mainstream comics. The first issue features QUITTER artist Dean Haspiel illustrating "The Day's Highlights," while Ty Templeton (BIGG TIME, BATMAN ADVENTURES) portrays Harvey's account of his relationship with his parents after the events of THE QUITTER. Also in this issue, AMERICAN SPLENDOR veterans Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm depict Harvey's struggles with an acerbic flight attendant and Hilary Barta (TOMORROW STORIES) shows us what Harvey considers a "delicacy." Now, three decades after his self-published debut, Harvey Pekar proves that while his life has changed, his ability to find the exceptional in the everyday has only grown better with time.

    American Splendor Unsung Hero (2002) 1

    Written by Harvey Pekar. Art and cover 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. 32 pages, FC. Cover price $3.99.

Crumb. And he'd already developed a dedicated following inside and outside the comics community. But when the hit movie American Splendor was released, the stakes were suddenly raised. Now, Harvey is practically mainstream - the Dostoevsky of the graphic novel (but funnier). This new anthology of some of Harvey's greatest works is illustrated by some of the greatest artists in the business! Softcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 332 pages, B&W. Cover price $17.95.
