    Default It's raining a splendid cartoon writer

    harvey pekar is gone

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...071202413.html


    CLEVELAND -- Comic-book writer Harvey Pekar (PEE'-kahr), whose "American Splendor" was made into a 2003 film starring Paul Giamatti, has been found dead in his Ohio home.

    Coroner's spokesman Powell Caesar in Cleveland says an autopsy will be performed. He had no details on the death of the 70-year-old Pekar.

    Cleveland Heights police Capt. Michael Cannon says officers were called to Pekar's home by his wife about 1 a.m. Monday. Cannon says Pekar had been suffering from prostate cancer, asthma, high blood pressure and depression.

    Pekar's "American Splendor" comics, which he began publishing in 1976, chronicle his grousing about work, money and the monotony of life.

    Fucking love it.

    Watching that video gave me the impression he was an act. I don't like that.

    i hate how letterman is talking to him like he's a child. I want to hit that man so much at times.

    Bumping above the "raining Mel Gibson's career" thread, on principle.
