Seth Kushner's HARVEY PEKAR Tribute

Today is the one-year anniversary of Harvey Pekar's death. One of the more extraordinary homages appearing today is Seth Kushner's photo comic, "Harvey Pekar: Tribute to 'Our Man.'" (It's #25 of Seth's CulturePop series on ACT-I-VATE.) Weaving wonderful photos of Harvey with Pekar's own words, it takes the reader through his remarkable life and career. People like Harvey's wife Joyce Brabner, the filmmakers behind the American Splendor movie, and collaborators like Dean (man_size ) Haspiel, Jeff (jahfurry) Newelt, and Joseph Remnant make appearances as well. (Oh, and I'm in there too.) It's memoir, it's photography, it's comics — it's Seth's unique form of creative expression. Please check it out: http://act-i-vate.com/104-25-1.comic.

P.S. Another nice tribute is KCRW's re-broadcast of a 2003 conversation between Harvey and Elvis Mitchell: http://www.kcrw.com/etc/programs/tt/tt030813harvey_pekar
