A comic legend has passed away at the age of 70. Harvey Pekar represented perhaps the best and the worst in all of comics. He was a grouchy, slovenly, mentally disturbed man that is the avatar for what we comic-lovers are afraid we are turning into - yet he was infinitely likeable, and prolific in his ability to turn everyday life into entertainment. The comic that he wrote, American Splendor, has chronicled his meandering existence since the early 80's.

If you haven't seen the film, American Splendor, a biography of his life, then you owe it to yourself and to all comicdom to check it out. He was one of a kind.
