Joseph Remnant’s Harvey Pekar seems as firmly rooted on the page and in the story as Pekar himself seems to be firmly rooted in his own life.
A terrific story terrifically illustrated. I love the lack of panel borders, and as a result, the way the story floats in a limbo not unlike that experienced while traveling. Excellent work, Messrs. Pekar and Remnant!
interesting how you went out of the panels. your lettering is
perfect joseph.. nice cross-hatched shadows. bravo!
Hah! Cole looks awesome! Mr. Pekar is such a great speaker. Out of all the authors who came to BSU this year, Mr. Pekar was the best. He was so nice to speak to our class.

Hi-It’s amazing that we takled _today_ and I mentioned Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. If you haven’t read it yet, then do so soon you’ll probably skip pages of explanation, as I did, toward the end. However, it has started me on another obsessive/compulsive endeavor to not only buy local, but produce as much of my family’s food as well. Next year Jim and I (and possibly someone else) could be surviving on what we grow. Yeah, scary.Talk soon.Love,Christian
