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. Following the success of his critically praised, top-selling graphic novel The Quitter, Harvey Pekar returns with an all-new volume of American Splendor, celebrating 30 years of the series that first showed how, as Harvey says, "ordinary life can be pretty complex stuff." In this collection, Harvey is joined by an all-star roster of artists including his collaborator on The Quitter, Dean Haspiel. 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 sharper with time.
