Harvey Pekar: Today we mourn a scrooge

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?

Harvey Pekar: Today we mourn a scrooge

Postby Marvell » Wed Jul 14, 2010 11:21 am

Harvey Pekar, a splendid American, has eaten his last tempeh sandwich.

I just loaned my bound collection of American Splendor last week to a friend who had never heard of it. Not surprisingly, she loved it.

I'm not kidding when I say that I consider Pekar to be one of the giants of 20th-century American letters. His fundamental honesty and compassion were characteristics I can only aspire to emulate.

R.I.P., Harvey. You were the definition of a mensch.
