If you've never before been to a comics convention, there's no need to start now! Instead, pick up the latest issue of Harvey Pekar's autobiographical comic American Splendor, in which he tackles the comings and goings of the summer convention scene. Knowing that places are only as good as the people who inhabit them, Harvey focuses his sights on con guests and attendees in three brand-new stories. In "Huckster" and "The Worst Possible Job," Harvey tells the life story and working methods of Kapitan Kartoon, a budding artist with brilliant salesmanship. Also, "The Warning" details a conversation with Simpsons-creator Matt Groening about Harvey's ambitions.
