Loved it! Did "The Junk Bar" remind anyone else of "American Splendor"? It did me, I mean that in a very positive way as AS is on of my very favorite works -- it certainly was not like enough to AS for me to think of it as a rip off but there was a general sense I got of being in Pekar's Cleveland -- the griminess, the speech patterns, I'm not sure what all... Did Scott ever illustrate for AS?

I'm not saying that you don't know what you're talking about, but I don't know what you're talking about.

That's a definite possibility...

Wasn't aware of it at the time, but I guess I can see it after the fact.

Frank and Harvey Pekar are certainly quintessential "Grumpy Old Men" though I like Harvey more.
