HARVEY PEKAR 1939-2010
Harvey Pekar was the first writer I brought into Vertigo. My first week on the job. Needless to say, I was pretty excited.
Now it’s six years later and suddenly, Harvey is gone.
Best known for his legendary autobiographical AMERICAN SPLENDOR series, which was published independently and also by Vertigo in recent years, Harvey Pekar was a unique and definitive voice in the industry that will never be replicated. We’d like to take a moment to share one of Pekar’s contributions to DC.
Comic book legend Harvey Pekar's death yesterday has been reported on by many mainstream news outlets.
The Harvey Awards have announced their nominees for this year's awards. Named in honor of the late Harvey Kurtzman, the awards will be presented August 28 in Baltimore, in conjunction with the Baltimore Comic-Con.
First off, thanks to everyone at Vertigo for supporting my new book and letting me have this extra venue to talk about it. Over the next few days I’ll try to go into as much of the interesting details of my creative process as I can.
