Students for a Democratic Society : a graphic history by Harvey Pekar( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 660 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: The History of SDS as You've Never Seen It Before. In 1962 at a United Auto Workers' camp in Michigan, Students for a Democratic Society held its historic convention and prepared the famous Port Huron Statement, drafted by Tom Hayden. This statement, criticizing the U.S. government's failure to pursue international peace or address domestic inequality, became the organization's manifesto. Its last convention was held in 1969 in Chicago, where, collapsing under the weight of its notoriety and popularity, it shattered into myriad factions. Through brilliant art and they-were-there dialogue, famed graphic novelist Harvey Pekar, gifted artist Gary Dumm, and renowned historian Paul Buhle illustrate the tumultuous decade that first defined and then was defined by the men and women who gathered under the SDS banner. Students for a Democratic Society: A Graphic History captures the idealism and activism that drove a generation of young Americans to believe that even one person's actions can help transform the world

Ego & hubris : the Michael Malice story by Harvey Pekar( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
Cleveland native Harvey Pekar entered our national consciousness first as the author of the autobiographical graphic novel American Splendor and then as the star of the Sundance Award-winning documentary with the same title. In Ego & Hubris, he explores the life of antihero Michael Malice, an unshakably self-confident New York temp. Egomaniacal Malice has never encountered an intellect he cannot disparage, but his life is in tatters, which only redoubles his scathing disdain, in this remorseless satire on human vanities

Robin Hood : people's outlaw and forest hero: a graphic guide by Paul Buhle( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 61 libraries worldwide
Where and what was Robin Hood? Why is an outlaw from fourteenth century England still a hero today, with films, festivals and songs dedicated to his living memory?This book explores the mysteries, the historical evidence, and the trajectory that led to centuries of village festivals around Mayday and the green space of nature unconquered by the forces in power. Great revolutionaries including William Morris adopted Robin as hero, children’s books offered many versions, and Robin entered modern popular culture with cheap novels, silent films and comics.There, in the world of popular culture, Robin Hood continues to holds unique and secure place. The “bad-good” hero of pulp urban fiction of the 1840s-50s, and more important, the Western outlaw who thwarts the bankers in pulps, films, and comics, is essentially Robin Hood. So are Zorro, the Cisco Kid, and countless Robin Hood knockoff characters in various media.Robin Hood has a special resonance for leftwing influences on American popular culture in Hollywood, film and television. During the 1930s-50s, future blacklist victims devised radical plots of “people’s outlaws,” including anti-fascist guerilla fighters, climaxing in The Adventures of Robin Hood, network television 1955-58, written under cover by victims of the Blacklist, seen by more viewers than any other version of Robin Hood.Robin Hood: People's Outlaw and Forest Hero also features 30 pages of collages and comic art, recuperating the artistic interpretations of Robin from seven centuries, and offering new comic art as a comic-within-a book.With text by Paul Buhle, comics and assorted drawings by Christopher Hutchinson, Gary Dumm, and Sharon Rudahl; Robin Hood: People's Outlaw and Forest Hero adds another dimension to the history and meaning of rebellion
Anthologie American splendor by Harvey Pekar( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"Au début des années 1960, Harvey Pekar est employé au classement d'un hôpital public de la ville de Cleveland, critique de jazz et collectionneur de vieux disques pour arrondir ses funs de mois. Il rencontre alors le dessinateur Robert Crumb et découvre la bande dessinée underground américaine. Fasciné par les possibilités offertes par ce médium, il développe quelques années plus tard un projet de bande dessinée autobiographique et, incapable de dessiner, il convainc Crumb et deux dessinateurs de Cleveland, Gary Dumm et Greg Budgett, d'illustrer les premières histoires. En 1976, il décide d'auto-éditer sa bientôt mythique série, American splendor, à laquelle la fine fleur de la scène indépendante américaine va participer. La série a reçu le très prestigieux American Book Award en 1987. American splendor a été adaptée au théâtre en 1985 et 1990, puis au cinéma en 2003." [Source : 4e de couv.]
American splendor : the life and times of Harvey Pekar : stories by Harvey Pekar( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
"American Splendor is the world’s first literary comic book. Cleveland native Harvey Pekar is a true American original. A V.A. hospital file clerk and comic book writer, Harvey chronicles the ordinary and mundane in stories both funny and touching. His dead-on eye for the frustrations and minutiae of the workaday world mix in a delicate balance with his insight into personal relationships. Pekar has been compared to Dreiser, Dostoevsky, and Lenny Bruce. But he is truly more than all of them—he is himself."--Publisher's website
American splendor by Harvey Pekar( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Harvey Pekar, master of the autobiographical graphic novel, returns with three more slices from the cake of life. In "Why Don't They Let Us Out?" Harvey is trapped at his hospital job two days before Christmas. Nothing much is happening, and Harvey is forced to make life interesting for himself. Things aren't so simple, though, in "Veteran's Rights." Harvey comes up against a bullheaded supervisor in another department, sparking a war of wits and red tape -- proving that Harvey truly is a soldier for the working class. Both of these stories are illustrated by Frank Stack, the legendary artist who teamed with Harvey on the award winning graphic novel, Our Cancer Year. Finally, Joe Sacco, the acclaimed creator of Palestine, illustrates "Efficiency," Harvey's guide to and failure at squeezing the most out of one's life. This issue features a painted front cover by Frank Stack and a back cover by Joe Zabel
