We gave it an A

Pekar jumps off American Splendor to explore the life of Michael Malice, who edits OverheardinNY.com, a website chronicling tidbits New Yorkers pick up on the street. He’s also a devout Ayn Randian with a superiority complex both repellent and compelling.

Graphic Goal
Gary Dumm’s thin-lined B&W style makes ugliness beautiful.

Comix Effect
You’d probably think twice about having a drink with Malice, but Pekar cuts to his heart.
