after putting it off as long as i could, i went to see American Splendor…before this movie, i had no idea who harvey pekar was…i would dare say that his work goes a long way towards creating a convincing artguement that comic books are a literary art form..i wouldn’t go so far as saying they are an american art form…you can’t ignore or underestimate the japanses contribution…so, why did i avoid this movie? it confirmed what i was afraid it would..excluding the whole being published thing, my life has been an awful lot like his…dead end souls sucking occupation for apaycheck…yeadrs of working in obscurity…crotchety attitude…believe it or not though, i walked out inspired and enboldened for more lonlieness, frustration, and lack of recognition…
