Pre-Order Your Copy of Harvey Pekar's Cleveland!Top Shelf teams up with an up and coming new publisher to bring you a posthumous project from the legendary creator!



Harvey Pekar was one of a kind -- as Alan Moore says, "a pillar of the comics medium." His work in autobiographical comics has affected millions deeply, and his influence can be seen everywhere today.

This winter, we're honored to team up with new publisher Zip Comics to release one of his final projects: Harvey Pekar's Cleveland, a heartfelt memoir as well as a bittersweet celebration of the city he loved.

A lifelong resident of Cleveland, Ohio, Harvey Pekar (1939-2010) pioneered autobiographical comics, mining the mundane for magic since 1976 in his critically acclaimed series American Splendor.

Harvey Pekar's Cleveland is sadly one of his last, but happily one of his most definitive graphic novels. It presents key moments and characters from the city's history, intertwined with Harvey's own ups and downs, as relayed to us by Our Man and meticulously researched and rendered by artist Joseph Remnant. At once a history of Cleveland and a portrait of Harvey, it's a tribute to the ordinary greatness of both.

"One of the very greatest works by that unique and irreplaceable American voice, the truly splendorous Harvey Pekar... graced by the impeccable and poignant artistry of Joseph Remnant." -- From the introduction by Alan Moore

"America's poet-comic-laureate of curmudgeonhood is sorely missed, but thankfully, this posthumous book, like Hamlet's father, is here to remind us of the great man, the great Pekar." -- Jonathan Ames, author and creator of HBO's Bored to Death
