This particular selection today came from me thinking about a missed question I had at our weekly Geek Trivia competition. While American Splendor nor Harvey Pekar was the answer, a question pertained to the underground comic artist Robert Crumb and Fritz the Cat. Now I am a comic enthusiasts and it shamed me to not get this question right, but then for some reason I thought about American Splendor as Robert Crumb was part of the artistic team that brought Pekar’s writings to life. If you aren’t familiar with Pekar, don’t worry as not a lot of people are. As a biographic picture, this can be about as close to reality for Pekar as his comics can even get. This movie really is basically a comic of his brought to life.
