RIP, Harvey Pekar

NPR put together a really nice obit for Harvey Pekar, the author of the American Splendor series, most of which focused on the day-to-day reality of life in Cleveland. Mr. Pekar was found dead in his home on Monday—the cause of death is currently unknown, but he was 70 years old, and suffered from a variety of health problems, including prostate cancer, high blood pressure, asthma and depression. Our sympathy goes out to his family.
