Harvey Pekar isn’t dead

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.
