Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland Graphic Novel Has Been Released


The graphic novel Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland that we posted about previously is now available to purchase. It is both a tribute to Cleveland, Ohio and a unique autobiographical insight on the life of comic book writer Harvey Pekar featuring artwork by Joseph Remnant. The 128-page book is co-published by ZIP Comics & Top Shelf Productions.

A lifelong Cleveland resident, Harvey Pekar (1939-2010) pioneered autobiographical comics, mining the mundane for magic since 1976 in his ongoing American Splendor series. Harvey Pekar”s Cleveland is sadly one of his last, but happily one of his most definitive graphic novels. It combines classic American Splendor-ous autobiographical anecdotes with key moments and characters in the city”s history as relayed to us by Our Man and meticulously researched and rendered by artist Joseph Remnant. With an introduction by Alan Moore to boot!
