    Description

    American Splendor #1 (Harvey Pekar, 1976) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. The late Harvey Pekar was a true original; He's considered to be the pioneer in what is generally referred to as "slice of life" comic stories. Thanks to an early friendship with Robert Crumb (both men were avid collectors of old records), Pekar developed a fondness for comics, and with the help of several artists he put out an issue a year for many years. This first issue includes a Robert Crumb two-pager, plus cover and interior art by Gary Dumm and Greg Budgett. Fogel's 2015 Underground Comix Price & Grading Guide NM- 9.2 value = $180. CGC census 10/15: 8 in 9.6, 1 higher. From the Howard Greber Collection.
