RIP: Harvey Pekar (1939-2010)

Famous crankypants cartoonist, Harvey Pekar, passed away today at the age of 70.

Although he couldn’t sketch his way out of a paperbag, his collaboration with R. Crumb and several more of the industry’s top illustrators brought his comical, curmudgeonly autobiographical stories to life, culminating in the critically-acclaimed American Splendor (2003).
