The great underground hero, Harvey Pekar, has passed away. In doing so, he leaves the rest of the world with a beautiful and unique body of work that has chronicled his life since the seventies. Harvey was one of my heroes because he believed in comics as an expandable art form. At the same time, he was one of the most endearing characters in comics because he was real and honest. Get to know Harvey by reading the “American Splendor” anthologies, “The Quitter”, and watching my sixth favorite movie of all time, “American Splendor”.
