* SpiritualSuccessor: To the works of JackKerouac. In fact, in the forward to the first ''American Splendor'' collection, Robert Crumb mentions that Harvey is the type of person who wouldn't be out of place in a Kerouac novel.

* RealPersonCameo: All the time. Especially in "Grubstreet, U.S.A." (where he meets [[MyDinnerWithAndre Wallace Shawn]]), and ''definitely'' in "Our Movie Year," which was about the making of the ''American Splendor'' movie. And Creator/RobertCrumb is depicted in various comics too, of course.

See also RobertCrumb, a friend and fellow jazz aficionado of Harvey's, who drew several ''American Splendor'' stories (and yes, was even featured in a few as a character).

* FirstLawOfTragicomedies: Okay, so Harvey's a gloomy guy anyway, but the movie is a lot lighter and funnier at the beginning when it juxtaposes the live action actors with comic illustrations, and the actors with the real life Harvey, Joyce, and Toby. Then the movie takes a turn for the dramatic right around the scene where a passerby recognizes Movie!Harvey as the funny guy from [[LateNight the Letterman show]].

* NWordPrivileges: Harvey told of having been accused of anti-Semitism for stories like "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Standing Behind Old Jewish Ladies in Supermarkets]]", despite being Jewish himself. In the same story, a black fan of Harvey's asks him about the way he portrays other black people; Harvey explains that he always asks if he can use their stories in his work, since most of the people he writes about work with him at his day job and doesn't want to alienate them.
