American Splendor: Another Day



Tomorrow, Harvey Pekar's AMERICAN SPLENDOR: ANOTHER DAY, hits comix shoppes around the nation. It collects Harvey's 4-issue mini-series published by Vertigo. ANOTHER DAY features collaborations with a bunch of great artists, including Josh Neufeld, Bob Fingerman, Richard Corben, Eddie Campbell, Gilbert Hernandez, and Ty Templeton. I think it's Harvey's best work since THE QUITTER.

When I was asked to illustrate the cover to the collection, I came up with several ideas before the editor selected the one that made the muster. Below the LJ-cut are my rejected ideas.
