Harvey Pekar, R.I.P.

Lonnie Timmons III, The Plain Dealer

His demons and faults he'd reveal
There's nothing he'd ever conceal
The aches and the pains
the stress and the strains
His art was depicting the real

The first time I saw comics writer Harver Pekar was at a Chicago comics convention. I was sitting in the Ramada O'hare, and I watched Harvey walk across the lobby, a finger stuck in his nose the entire time. Harvey was a true character. Thanks for everything, Harvey.
