Synopsis

In this all-new graphic novel, Harvey Pekar - whose award-winning series "American Splendor" became a feted movie - tells the story of his teen years for the first time. When he failed to impress, whether on the football team, in math class, in the Navy or on the job, Pekar simply gave up! A true tour-de-force, "The Quitter" is the universal tale of a young man's search for himself through the frustrations, redemptions and complexities of ordinary life. Featuring the atmospheric artwork of Dean Haspiel ("American Splendor"), "The Quitter" is both Pekar's funniest and most heart-wrenching work yet, an unforgettable read for all those, like Pekar, who have tried, failed and lived to quit another day.
