Abstract
This article articulates how American Splendor’s filmmakers deploy postmodernity and the seemingly antithetical logic of the simulacrum as the central means of documenting the real-life experiences of Harvey Pekar. Paradoxically, the film also attempts to reveal how these experiences necessarily continue to exist outside the simulacrum, in an affective realm.
