    Solid Harvey

    While not offering anything unusual this time around, Harvey Pekar still offers a solidly interesting look at his life and times in Cleveland, Ohio. By now American Splendor is like an old friend who may seem just a bit torn and frayed; however is still someone whose insights into the world are still worth discussing. Harvey has taken us through the mundane as well as the dramatic in his life as we have all been given this wonderful look into how he views the world.
    And while it may seem easy to look upon his life and times as something that doesn't touch me (after all, you won't catch ME obsessing about some old jazz record!) the truth is that the brutal honesty that Harvey offers to all of us reflects the brutal truth each one of us faces every day.
    Don't fool yourself into thinking this material is about triviality. It is more about the small things that make up each of our lives every day. And only Harvey can make those small things profound.
    It would be helpful to have read some of Harvey's earlier work (My Cancer Year, earlier issues of American Splendor), but it isn't necessary. The beauty of Harvey is that you can jump in at any issue and come away appreciating the clear eyed truth of Harvey Pekar.
