Don't miss this new
softcover edition of the award-nominated graphic novel telling the story of Harvey
Pekar's troubled teen years for the first time. With gritty, atmospheric
artwork by indie-comics luminary Dean Haspiel (American Splendor, Opposable
Thumbs), The Quitter is both Pekar's
funniest and most heart-wrenching work yet. A new mini-series of Harv’s American Splendor from DC’s Vertigo
imprint launches this autumn.
"A searingly honest memoir… Pekar's work
dignifies the struggle of the average man." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review).
"The brilliance of The Quitter rests
in how Pekar un-ironically exposes the tragedy of missed opportunities and the
general ridiculousness of human behaviour. Grade: A." - Entertainment
"Brutally honest…" - Rolling
"Pekar's most poignant and satisfying effort to
date." - The New York Times
