AMERICAN SPLENDOR #1 (Cleveland Heights, OH: Harvey Pekar, 1976).

First (and only) printing. The inaugural issue of Harvey Pekar's self-published, autobiographical comic book series American Splendor, which came about through his friendship with Robert Crumb and their mutual love of 78rpm jazz records (Crumb lived in Pekar's hometown of Cleveland in the mid-'60s). Its stories, illustrated by Crumb, Gary G. Dumm, Greg Budgett and Brian Bramm, document Pekar's everyday life in Cleveland and the mundanity of existence (a film adaptation was released in 2003, starring Paul Giamatti as Pekar and James Urbaniak as Crumb). Short snag to lower edge; light creasing and handling wear; o/w Very Good.
