The best of AMERICAN SPLENDOR, the first literary comic book, is represented in this superbly illustrated collection by Harvey Pekar. The stories are both funny and touching, showing the delicate balance of personal relationships and the frustrations of the workday world. Pekar has been compared to Dreiser, Dostoevsky, and Lenny Bruce. That he is more himself than any of these will not be missed by readers of this omnibus.
