Harvey Pekar, R.I.P.
(October 8, 1939 – July 12, 2010)
Legendary underground comic writer Harvey Pekar died today. He was 70-years-old. Pekar’s seminal autobiographical comic book series, American Splendor, will forever embody the genius and influence he brought to the form.
I had no idea he died.
I bought and watched my copy of American Splendour for the first time the summer he died.
Is there really such a thing as coincidence?
