Vids I Dig 031: Comic Tropes: The Mundane Beauty of Harvey Pekar Comics

From Comic Tropes’ YouTube description: Harvey Pekar was a big part of popularizing the idea of autobiographical comics. He self-published stories from his life in American Splendor from 1976 to 2010. The stories dealt with the everyday, mundane aspects of life: relationships, work, culture, politics, hobbies and the highs and lows of very normal, relatable days. He worked with a variety of artists: Robert Crumb, Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm, Gerry Shamway, Val Mayerik, Dean Haspiel and many more.
