5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL!, October 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Not the Israel My Parents Promised Me (Hardcover)
Pekar was the same insightful, searching, critical thinker even toward the end. I liked his previous posthumous graphic novel, CLEVELAND, but there was something missing from it. While it was a fine work I didn't see much of Pekar's personality shining through the just-the-facts format of that one.

This book, however, is swimming in Pekar's vibes. It was great to read the words right out of his mouth again. In a way, he's still with us. In the way that only a book like this can possibly convey.

The sour grapes one-star reviews here come from people blinded by their conceits and prejudices. This is a priceless volume and I'm so happy to see it in the light of print, and to have purchased a copy.
