very nice work, a warm remembrance

jennifer griffith says:

i really liked this. the seemingly laid-back voice, the details of the drawings…the peek at pekar’s softer side.

This is so beautiful and inspiring. I once met Harvey Pekar at a comic event in Williamsburg. I inadvertantly stole his seat and he seemed relieved, as if he didn’t deserve it.

Nicely done, especially moving back and forth between black/white and color.

More than anything, I now need to dig out my issues of True Swamp.

Very nice, Vanessa. I like you’re drawing of him on page 2, panel 6. Beautiful strip.

A nice tribute … I enjoyed it very much.

Jeff Lancaster says:

Thanks for doing this Vanessa! It was great… I really dug Harvey’s stuff, especially his newer stuff like the Vietnam War book and Ego&Hubris. I totally remember that issue of American Splendor, I think I have it!

This is beautiful, Vanessa! Warms my heart to see a comic by you involving Harvey. I LOVE how you wrote that you knew the grumpiness came from ‘the truly tender hearted’. You are amazing.

Very touching, Vanessa. Got to admit the passing of “famous folks” rarely touches me but Harvey left me quite upset. The guy was one of a kind and your strip is a fitting tribute. Felt good to read it and realise I’m not the only person to hold him in such regard.

Very Nice. I avoid obits as a rule too, but this one is obviously very special to you and it shows. It made me wistful, and you are an artist. Thank you Vanessa.
