1:39pm: RIP Harvey Pekar
Harvey Pekar was a pioneer of the autobiographical comic book and it was working with him on THE QUITTER that put me on the map in our beloved industry. Harvey lived life and every last detail was written and drawn and published. He couldn't have done half of it without his wife, Joyce Brabner. The best way to honor Pekar now is to read his life, just like he would have wanted you to.
