Gerry Shamray has illustrated many issues of American Splendor, Harvey Pekar's autobiographical comics. In an introduction to a compilation of Pekar's work, R. Crumb stated that Shamray "went all the way, taking hundreds of photos of Pekar, his wife, his apartment, the streets of his neighborhood, and so on, and drew from the photos."[1]

From 1985 to 1991, Shamray was also the artist of the Tom Batiuk-created comic strip, John Darling, replacing original artist Tom Armstrong.
