HARVEY PEKAR Who is Harvey Pekar? The underground comics legend is or has been a file clerk at the VA hospital in Cleveland, a jazz aficionado and record hustler, a Rust Belt flaneur, a cantankerous guest on Letterman, a cancer survivor, a husband three times over, a guardian of a teenage girl, a loser, a mensch. And now he is on the verge of being something else: a movie star. Pekar comes to town to celebrate the release of the new film American Splendor (which took the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance) and the publication of an omnibus version of two previous anthologies. MONDAY AT 7, Barnes & Noble, 675 Sixth Avenue, 212-727-1227. (Park)
