Harvey Pekar is weird. He’s also highly fascinating. And if you saw the American Splendor movie in 2004, you need to read this companion volume that tells the tale of what Harvey was going through trying to get the movie made, what changes were made between real life and the script, Harvey’s travels to Europe, Asia, and Australia to promote the film, and some final thoughts about what’s next for him. Harvey reunites briefly with old friend Robert Crumb, (who also had a film made about him), so that’s an additional incentive to read.
