American Splendor wins the Sundance Prize.

American Splendor is a comic book written by Clevend writer and hospital worker Harvey Pekar. It’s an autobiographical look at his life — very realistic and no holds barred. Better still, this guy isn’t one of those writers who seems to be saying “look at me, I’m a writer and I have all of these important and deep things to say.” He’s a regular guy with issues and problems and little and big triumphs. If you want a place to start reading his stuff, try Our Cancer Year.
