Pollux writes:

A lot of thoughtful and moving tributes to Harvey Pekar have emerged from the world of comics this week, and Emdashes would like to make special mention of two of them.

Eric Reynolds of Fantagraphics has written an insightful piece on Pekar. Reynolds talks about his relationship with Pekar, both as a young fan and admirer and as a subsequent editor for The Complete Crumb series.

Bill Kartalopoulos, an authority and teacher of comics (and a friend of Emdashes) has written a typically thoughtful piece on Pekar that explores the Clevelander’s contribution to the world of comics.
