Urban American Splendor,
This review is from: Fist Stick Knife Gun: A Personal History of Violence (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Late Harvey Pekar created a comic version of his life is his many incarnations of his comic American Splendor (one of the best of this series is Best of American Splendor). It was one of those books you could read over and over again and get more and more out of it.
Jamar Nicholas adapted Geoffrey Canada's memoir into a graphic novel to urban memoir to be an African American Splender. Nicholas makes the text and art jump off the page.
Canada story of life in the streets will make you take notice.
My grandmother Esther use to say "Comic books are for kids: After reading this, Maus, Lone Wolf and Cub, Preacher and Pekar's Splender..i can say these graohic novels are not for kids..BUT worth getting!
