RIP Harvey

"Am I a guy who writes about himself in a comic, or am I just a character in that comic?"

I was really sorry to hear about the passing of Harvey Pekar this past Monday, at the age of 70. He's definitely one of the most unique individuals to come into the public consciousness, and I'm sorry that we won't get to enjoy any new stories from him in the future. Last night we paid tribute by watching American Splendor outside by the firepit. Here's a video of one of his more infamous visits to Late Night with David Letterman.

That's a pretty sweet tribute.

Thanks! Though I'm thinking of doing another one. This one came out a little too much like if Chevy Chase were to play him in a movie 20 years ago.
