    Description

    Harvey Pekar, Gary Dumm, and Greg Budgett American Splendor #1 Complete 11-page Story "Love Story" Original Art (Harvey Pekar, 1976). Our man Herbie encounters the girl he played "doctor" with as a kid, now grown up and working the streets, in this incredible slice-of-life story. A bittersweet reminiscence from the pen of the late Harvey Pekar, with finished art by Cleveland-area artists Budgett and Dumm, which appeared in the historic first issue of Pekar's self-published magazine, American Splendor. This story is a little more risque than most of AS stories, and is more in line with Pekar's Underground contemporaries like R. Crumb. Each page has an image area of approximately 11" x 16", and averages Very Good condition with light soiling in the outside borders. Adult content.
