REVIEW SCORE 9
Despite Harvey's bitter declaration on this cover, American Splendor #15 is a another classic issue featuring slices of Harvey's everyday life. It took 13 years after this book was published (and over a dozen more American Splendor comic books were published by Dark Horse) before Harvey's life was finally documented on film in an award-winning movie starring Paul Giamatti, called (what else?) "American Splendor." Full review coming soon.
