American Splendor is the story of a little-known working-class everyman, and first-class curmudgeon, Harvey Pekar. Get it on DVD from Shopville!

An original mix of fiction and reality illuminates the life of comic book hero everyman Harvey Pekar.

Pekar finds love, family and a creative voice through the underground comic books he creates, but still can't manage to find the quicker supermarket checkout line. Ordinary life is pretty complex stuff.

Pekar (Paul Giamatti) is a frustrated file clerk at a V.A. Hospital, but also a comic book fan who befriends the young illustrator Robert Crumb and is soon inspired to create comic books based on his own life, entitled AMERICAN SPLENDOR. Along the bumpy journey, he meets, marries and falls for Joyce (Hope Davis), an admiring comic book seller.

Also appearing are the real Harvey and Joyce, comic book renderings of the couple, and cameos by some of Harvey's closest friends!
