Harvey Pekar's Artists

Harvey Pekar (1939–2010) published American Splendor, in one form or another, almost continually from 1976 until his death in 2010. An unflinching and often pessimistic account of his own life (he worked for more than 30 years at a Cleveland, Ohio, veterans' hospital), American Splendor was written by Pekar and illustrated by some of comix' best talents. In so doing, Pekar helped validate comics as an art form. Pekar's most well-known and longest-running collaborators include R. Crumb, Gary Dumm, Greg Budgett, Spain Rodriguez, Joe Zabel, Gerry Shamray, Frank Stack, Mark Zingarelli, and Joe Sacco; while recent years have seen him repeatedly team up with artists like Dean Haspiel and yours truly. Other notable cartoonists who have worked with Pekar include Jim Woodring, Chester Brown, Alison Bechdel, Gilbert Hernandez, Eddie Campbell, David Collier, Drew Friedman, Ho Che Anderson, Rick Geary, Ed Piskor, Hunt Emerson, and Bob Fingerman; as well as such unexpected illustrators as Pekar's wife Joyce Brabner and legendary comics writer Alan Moore!
