This truly is sad news. Harvey Pekar, one of the most prolific writers of underground comics and most famously “American Splendor” has passed away at age 70. His life was put to film in one of the best biopics ever made starring Paul Giamatti in his greatest role to date. The film is a testament to the creative soul and that even when dreams come true one must face their own reality. It’s one of the best films of the past ten years. Harvey, we’ll miss ya!
Here’s a strip (click to enlarge) written by Harvey after the passing of Marlon Brando on a film the great actor starred in called “The Men,” directed by one of my favorite directors – Fred Zinnemann.
