So long, Harvey.

Harvey Pekar died. I'm admittedly under read when it comes to Harvey Pekar's comics. I've read a few American Splendor stories, but most of what I know about Harvey comes from the excellent American Splendor film from a few years back, as well as documentaries like Comic Book Confidential. I kept meaning to get around to more, but, well, you know how that goes. I always appreciated what I have seen of his talent, though, especially his ability to interestingly capture the mundane. In his own words, "ordinary life is pretty complex stuff." Few people could prove that the way he did.
