Robert Crumb American Splendor #4 Complete 3-Page Story Original Art (Harvey Pekar, 1979). Astonishingly detailed pen-and-brush work from master cartoonist Crumb distinguishes this autobiographical story from Pekar: "The Kissinger Letter" tells of the time that Pekar fired off an angry note to Henry Kissinger (during the height of the Vietnam conflict) -- and was astonished to receive a diplomatic reply.
"American Splendor" movie still, 2003. L to R: Hope Davis as Joyce Brabner, Paul Giamatti as Harvey Pekar. Documentarians Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini had just completed their excellent documentary on the life of cartoonist R. Crumb and turned their attention on cartoonist Harvey Pekar. Half dramatized, half documentary, this film already had a built-in cult following thanks to the work of Pekar.
