On the 12th of July 2010, apparently, at 1 AM, Harvey Pekar passed away. I haven’t read too much of Harvey Pekar and whatever I know about him is through the movie ‘American Splendor’ which was based on his life. I really did like what I saw in the movie and Harvey seemed like a brilliant guy for walking out on Letterman and writing the stuff he wrote.
I do remember one image, it depicts Harvey standing in front of a mirror and thinking “Now there’s a reliable disappointment”.
He’d maybe say the same about dying.
