The Philadelphia Inquirer: "Still Drawn To Comics"

"Online comics, too, are a growth industry. Haspiel, who has illustrated both The Alcoholic and Pekar's powerful 2005 book, The Quitter, says his artistic approach for the Web is the same as for paper.

"It's just like film and literature," Haspiel says. "It's what you say and don't say, what you show and don't show. You can do anything with a blank piece of paper. I can take you anywhere with my pencil."
