From ruminations on jazz musicians to back problems and traffic tickets, Pekar writes in a clear, unsentimental voice that not only explores the mundane, but celebrates it as well. This time out, Pekar focuses his sharp literary eye on Robert McNeill, an ordinary man whos lived an extraordinary life. McNeill recounts his time spent as a G.I. in Vietnam, on a tour through that surreal and horrific landscape that even now, thirty years later, were struggling to define. Unsung Hero is a tale of cynicism and endurance, tempered by McNeills distinct sense of humor and Pekars touching wit.This volume collects issues one through three of the Dark Horse comic-book series American splendor : unsung hero
