Students for a Democratic Society : a graphic history by Harvey Pekar( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 667 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 268 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

Using a unique blend of text, collage, and comic art, this social commentary written in graphic novel format analyzes the continuity between the myth of Robin Hood and the occurrence of social uprisings among peasants. In addition, the book explores the mysteries, factual evidence, and trajectory that led to centuries of village festivals, songs, films, and cult television shows about the mythical hero who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. Featuring a collage of various artistic renderings of Robin Hood over the past seven centuries, the comic portion presents a distinct perspective o
American splendor : the life and times of Harvey Pekar : stories by Harvey Pekar( Book )
2 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
The classic collection of the comics that inspired the movie American Splendor, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. 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
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
