Harvey Pekar
Dean Haspiel

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 Weekly.

"Brutally honest…" - Rolling Stone.


"Pekar's most poignant and satisfying effort to date." - The New York Times Book Review.
