    "My brother is having foot surgery and is going to have a lot of down time soon. I know he likes to read graphic novels so I wanted to find him something interesting to read. I looked for the best graphic novels for everyone and found the book "American Splendor". I was completely blown away by this book from author Harvey Pekar. Being the first comic that drew attention to graphic novels, this autobiographical tale is a must read for any graphic novel fan. My brother will love it."

    "This is a great gift for those who are interested in comics. There isn't much content to be enjoyed by a general audience as the scope is so narrow. If someone is interested in a topic such as this, it would be a great gift!"

    "I like it! Hilarious! By the 20th page I was really feeling for the main character - so little spoken yet enough for the reader to really understand the feelings, emotions, agenda, and plight of all of the characters."

    "I wouldn't say that American Splendor was mindblowing. I read it and I didn't see what all of the hype was about. But then again, I am not a huge comic book fan. I don't plan on reading it again."
