RIP Harvey Pekar

"Cleveland comic-book legend Harvey Pekar dead at age 70"

I believe the film "American Splendor" only gave a hint of his funny/strange. Legendary underground comics writer Harvey Pekar dead at the age of 70. His comic series "American Splendor", about an everyday frumpy, depressed, bummed out average guy;
"Suggested a different sort of heroism: The working-class, everyman heroics of simply making it through another day, with soul -- if not dignity -- intact.
