The Philadelphia Inquirer - Spellbinding Read

EDITOR'S CHOICE

The Quitter by Harvey Pekar; illustrations by Dean Haspiel (Vertigo/DC Comics, November) Traditionalists may moan, but graphic novels are not only here to stay, they're going to proliferate. The best of the fall titles is this memoir from grumpy Harvey Pekar, who previously shared his irritable observations on life in American Splendor. The Quitter, illustrated '60s/R. Crumb style by Dean Haspiel, offers Pekar's reminiscences of growing up lonely and troubled in Cleveland. If it sounds self-centered, it is, but the author's experiences also perfectly reflect mid-century adolescence.
