Harvey Pekar is dead, though popular wisdom and the media in general tell us that he will live on through his work.
But this isn’t very satisfying – the implication that his memory will continue to linger as long as copies of his comics keep getting printed.
No, I prefer to think that Harvey isn’t dead. Perhaps to those who knew him best, there is a hole where he used to be. But for the rest of us tempted to mourn his passing, he’s as vivacious a beating heart as he ever was.
