Harvey Pekar's The Quitter gets some Hyperallergic love

From the Hyperallergic article "The Comics That Defined DC’s Vertigo Imprint" by Dan Schindel:

"Harvey Pekar set the standard for comic book autobiography with his seminal indie series American Splendor, but this one-off graphic novel he did with Dean Haspiel for Vertigo doesn’t get discussed as often. Delving more into memoir, Pekar recalls his youth and myriad struggles to find his purpose in life during that period. Just as forthright and wry as his work about his life as an adult, his memory refreshingly lacks any tinge of nostalgia obscuring events."
