Non Stop to Comic Con

“Unable to gain acceptance for their geeky ways back home, three friends embark on an epic journey to the apex of geekiness: San Diego Comic-Con.”

Harvey Pekar’s Teo Mercero

“Filmed in 2008 in a hotel room in the Lower East Side NYC and using original artwork by Joe Sacco, Harvey Pekar reads from his comic American Splendor telling the story of unknown jazz legend… Teo Macero, producer of Miles, Monk and Mingus.

In 2008 American comic book legend Harvey Pekar is filmed at a Lower East Side Side hotel reading the Teo Macero story from his American Splendor Comic. Written by Harvey and drawn by Joe Sacco (Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde) the story makes plain Harvey’s love for the unsung heroes of jazz.”
