Trouble with Comics, Harvey's Birthday

Harvey’s Birthday

On her Facebook page, Harvey Pekar’s widow Joyce Brabner reminds us today, October 8th, is Harvey’s birthday. I still can’t believe he’s gone, myself — Harvey’s writing was such a big part of almost the entirety of my comics-reading life that it feels like someone removed a really key piece from the Jenga game of my interest in the artform.

So, Harvey, you and I both know you probably aren’t listening, but just in case, man, I’m thinking about you today and I’m profoundly grateful for all the entertainment you provided me over your lifetime and all the thought you provoked. And I know I am not alone.

— Alan David Doane
