Book Description:
HAVE ATTITUDE, WILL TRAVELHarvey Pekar changed the face of comics when his American Splendor series replaced traditional slam bang superhero action with slice of life tales of his own very ordinary existence in Cleveland, Ohio, as a file clerk, jazz record collector, and philosophical curmudgeon. Much as Seinfeld famously transcended sitcom conventions by being a show about nothing, Pekar s deadpan chronicles of regular life peppered with wry and caustic reflections have transformed comics from escapist fantasy into social commentary with voice balloons. Huntington, West Virginia On the Fly is prime Pekar, recounting the irascible everyman s on the road encounters with a cross section of characters a career criminal turned limo driving entrepreneur, a toy merchant obsessed with restoring a vintage diner, comic book archivists, indie filmmakers, and children of the sixties all of whom have stories to tell. By turns funny, poignant, and insightful, these portraits la Pekar showcase a one of a kind master at work, channeling the stuff of average life into genuine American art.
