One thought on “American Splendor Presents: Bob and Harv's Comics

  1. Anna H

    3.5 stars As a fan of the film, American Splendor, I was always interested in checking out Pekar s comics This was not disappointing I happened to come across this on GR I thought I d give it a shot I have never read a comic book before, so I m enjoying Pekar s timeless slice of life humor Reminds me of Seinfeld in print.

  2. Daniel

    Over the years, I ve read occasional comics by R Crumb, but this was my first time reading anything by his frequent collaborator, writer Harvey Pekar, creator of the American Splendor comics Pekar devotes most of his strips to slice of life tales of working as a government file clerk, listening to jazz music, and living a lower middle class life in Cleveland, a city long on the decline You ve got to love any comic book that attempts to grab readers, as American Splendor did, with such cover tag [...]

    Las historias de Harvey Pekar tienen algo que te hacen sentir cercano a la vida, a lo que pasa com nmente en esta Quiz esto sea por su car cter meramente realista sin meterse en que si lo que se cuenta es completamente ver dico o no Aunque seg n afirman los autores que as es , en la manera de afrontar cada situaci n Pues si bien est n omitidas partes esenciales de una narraci n como el cl max o la consecuencia final definido cada historia tiene fuerza y sobresale por si misma.En alg n relato, me [...]

    In reading this book, I ve taken my first step into reading comic books and it couldn t have been a better place to start Harvey Pekar s work is so simple and slice of life and I love it It makes normal living seem relevant in some way The humor is subtle which makes it enjoyable His stories remind me of a Bukowski book minus the drinking and sex Very working class Awesome.

  5. Gonzalo Oyanedel

    De todos los artistas que colaboraron con Harvey Pekar, acaso sea Robert Crumb quien traspas mejor sus guiones gracias a ese trazo intenso y vigoroso que le dio popularidad Historias breves sobre episodios sencillos hacen de Cleveland un microuniverso familiar, donde las visiones cotidianas de Harv y sus personajes se hacen cercanas al lector m s despierto Uno de los mayores t tulos del Slice of Life estadounidense.

  6. Yair Ben-Zvi

    The only reason this doesn t get a higher score is because a decent chunk of the stories are reprints from previous american splendor collections or maybe I read them out of order In either case it doesn t really matter, Pekar s stories and R Crumb s art as well as the other great talents are than worth seeing multiple times I m biased huge Harvey Pekar fan so when I say the stories outshine the art you ll see where I m coming from Pekar writes stories of everyday life that can be so heavy, so [...]

  7. Andy

    Bob Harv s Comics collects R Crumb and Harvey Pekar s work together between the years of 1976 1988 and formed a good deal of material used in the American Splendor movie Although dozens of artists have captured Harvey Pekar through the years, no one can top R Crumb s rendering of the working class wild man himself Each pic of Pekar makes him look manic and irritable than the last one, fixing both Mr Crumb and even us with an intense blank stare.The big surprise of the collection, however, is th [...]

  8. Dave

    The stories of Harvey Pekar are slice of a mundane life than true memoir or autobiography These are short tales of an everyman working class stiff who is not exactly unhappy but not truly happy either The artwork of Robert Crumb brings these vignettes to life and adds depth to the experience Fascinating and compelling and not at all exciting Still worth a glance, though, for anyone interested in telling stories in a graphic medium.

  9. Bill

    If you re a fan of R Crumb and or Harvey Pekar then you ll probably like this book It seems to be a random collection of pieces over a period of time none of them really have anything to do with the other If you re a fan, you probably already have this or have read it If you re not, it s short and probably a decent introduction to these guys.

  10. Erika

    This book gathers together the Pekar stories illustrated by Crumb Very nice, but don t buy this, if you already have the collection with Paul Giamatti on the cover, for most of the stories can be found in both.

  11. Pan

    really great stuffnda weird at first because there s no real comedy or drama going on, but the characters are just everyday people doing everyday things surrounded by everyday frustrations inspiring work also, you gotta love r crumb s art.4.5 stars

  12. Pablo

    Harvey Pekar y su inigualable talento para contar historias en las que no pasa nada pero que entretienen en la pluma de Crumbs.

  13. Bruce Thomas

    I was inspired to read this by the movie American Splendor I like the everyday life comic strip tales from Cleveland.

  14. Deodand

    Pekar and Crumb give characters an earthy quality I can feel the time and care that went into these comics This attention to detail is sadly missing in most other works.
