Richard

R. Crumb hated James Urbaniak's portrayal of him...but then again, R. Crumb hates anything that isn't a large, domineering female.
I didn't notice any disdainful, superior tone in "American Splendor." My problem with it is that it played unnecessary portrayal-versus-reality games with Harvey Pekar's much simpler original stories while altering the original stories. (Example: in the R. Crumb-drawn comic, Harvey gives a deadpan talking-head monologue about other Harvey Pekars in the phone book, and it's hilarious. In the movie, Giamatti does a shticky stand-up act and it's not funny at all.) Still, it's a stretch that Walking Tall 3 is the better movie.
