    Every once in a while a creation appears that both reinvents and epitomizes its genre. 1981 marked the beginning of such an event with the first issue of Nexus, a playful adventure series that paid homage to the best of classic science fiction while introducing an unforgettable antihero.

    AMERICAN SPLENDOR #1 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Vertigo Comics
    Writers: Harvey Pekar
    Pencils: Dean Haspiel, Ty Templeton, Hilary Barta, Greg Budgett, Gary Dumm
    Covers: Glenn Fabry

    Part 1 of 4
    Following the success of his critically praised, top-selling graphic novel THE QUITTER, Harvey Pekar returns to Vertigo with an all-new 4-issue AMERICAN SPLENDOR miniseries, celebrating 30 years of the series that first showed how, as Harvey says, "ordinary life can be pretty complex stuff." First appearing in 1976, AMERICAN SPLENDOR rose "from the streets of Cleveland" to change the way comics readers and creators viewed the potential of their medium. The series won an American Book Award and became an Oscar-nominated film.

    In Vertigo's AMERICAN SPLENDOR, Harvey is joined by an all-star roster of artists from both indie and mainstream comics. The first issue features QUITTER artist Dean Haspiel illustrating "The Day's Highlights," while Ty Templeton (BIGG TIME, BATMAN ADVENTURES) portrays Harvey's account of his relationship with his parents after the events of THE QUITTER. Also in this issue, AMERICAN SPLENDOR veterans Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm depict Harvey's struggles with an acerbic flight attendant and Hilary Barta (TOMORROW STORIES) shows us what Harvey considers a "delicacy."

    Now, three decades after his self-published debut, Harvey Pekar proves that while his life has changed, his ability to find the exceptional in the everyday has only grown better with time.

    Publisher:
    IDW Publishing
    Writers: Simon Furman
    Pencils: Don Figueroa
    Covers: Don Figueroa

    Part 3 of 4
    The action explodes on two fronts, as - on CYBERTON - the WRECKERS kick back (hard!) against BLUDGEON’s rogue cult, and - on Nebulos - THUNDERWING shows exactly why, last time around, it took the combined firepower of two armies just to put him on ‘pause.’ As events spiral out of control and the body count rises, MEGATRON prepares to execute his distinctly terminal no-win scenario. Features a special wraparound cover from Figueroa as well as a variant character sketch cover from Fig, too.
