As Harvey Pekar’s unofficial, unauthorized archivist, and in honor of the publication of The Quitter, I’ve updated my list of Pekar’s artists! From R. Crumb to Joe Sacco, “Dino” man_size Haspiel to Gary Dumm, Joe Zabel to Frank Stack, Chester Brown to Jim Woodring — even Joyce Brabner to Alan Moore — this is where you can find which artist drew what story.
The list is organized by artist’s last name and features the title of the piece, where it appeared, and the date it was published. It’s fairly comphrehensive: I own pretty much everything Harvey’s ever published, with the exception of American Splendor #1 (but a lot of the material from that issue ended up in the first AS collection), but if you spot an error or have an addition, please let me know.
Enjoy the arcana: joshcomix.com/and/pekar_artists.

That’s a labor of love, to be sure.
You forgot to add our 2pp comic for the Nov. 2005 SPIN Magazine, titled “Rock, Roll ‘n’ Randle.”
Also — does our cover for The Boston Phoenix count? It’s got Pekar’s text and my art…kinda like a 1-pager…
Aha!! Who’s cuckoo now, SUCKAHHH??!?!?!?!
Good catch. I added the Spin piece and the Phoenix cover. It’s only fair, then, that I add this year’s SPX program cover to my resumé as well…
YOu also forgot ME. It’s gary dumm inks and pencils. Laura Dumm is coloring the cover.
Once it’s published, I’ll be sure to add it
