    Sean this is so good! I listened to this interview when it first aired and this strip really brings that conversation to life in an incredible way. Well done

  2. Kittelsen

    Pekar + Rushkoff + Pryor = Too many of my favorite things in the same place all at once. I remember this interview… it’s great to see it come to life in comics form. Looking forward to the next installment!

    Very cool piece with two greats going head to head! Love the artwork, Sean - esp the opener, the theater production, and a great Jon Stewart and Colbert set!

    The corporate agenda is still there, only it’s disguise has been perfected. Now the kids cheer for Colbert and Daily (no relation, no ‘E’), they clap and two-finger whistle for the agenda, they just don’t know it. We don’t know what we don’t know. Harvey knows I’m right about this.

    I haunted Cleveland back in the late seventies and early eighties. Gray snow, soot on the sills, but great memories sprinkled with melancholy. You can go back again, but who wants to? Anything with/about Harvey brings it back. Great cartoon. Thanks…RD

    sometimes it isn’t ‘corporate’ to change things.. it just happens you have to dumb things down if you want reach more people.. how many things do you buy that make your life simpler? Do you really want to churn your own butter? make your own bullets? etc.. so as with life’s daily travels, those stories are also simplified for easier consumption.. that is the main agenda.. sure there are the other’s, but money is the main motive - rent is real for everyone

    Excellent works and pieces. I would like to see the literary mirrors of the past shattered & some etchings cover the present and the future disadventures of Harvey Pekar.

    all my respect to the great pekar.

    Great stuff! Lifted me after hearing about Harvey’s demise. The legacy that Pekar leaves is the connection he creates with those who seek the truth. He had an amazing talent for defining our place in the world. Harvey, you are a modern day Van Gogh and I miss you terribly.

  20. Rick Parker

    Enjoyed this very strip very much, Sean. Thanks! It has that “ring of truth” to it that was so important to Mr. Pekar.

    that in his upbringing, under pnsiederts like Eisenhower, Republicans were true fiscal conservatives and actually cut spending and balanced the budget Even Reagan, while he had huge deficits, did cut spending and reduce the size of the government The reason he and Bush I had such large deficits was because of their insistence on huge tax cuts and drastically increasing our military budget The big problem with Bush II is that he wants to have huge tax cuts for the rich AND increases the size and influence of government AND is spending 10 billion a month in Iraq All adding up to monstrous deficits and putting this country in a position where we will be bankrupt soon Regardless of where people fall in terms of their opinion of Bush’s presidency, it can be objectively said I think that he has put this country in a fiscal disaster And sadly many people will blame the next president for all the major problems and cuts they will have to deal with, when really it was Bush’s fault Kind of like how Mark Warner had to deal with all Gilmore’s mistakes early in his time as Governor Oh well, we’ll see what happens I guess that’s my 2 cents

    I’ve really eneoyjd following you, and I have to say that I’m disappointed to see you completely pull out of social media. I do understand I did a Lenten social media fast last year, and it was great for me but since I almost never check my RSS feeds any more, I rely on Twitter to alert me to new content, and I’m sad I’m going to miss that from you. I guess I could start checking my feeds.In the end, you have to do what makes sense for you. Twitter has been such a valuable professional resource for me that I can’t imagine giving it up entirely, but for others like yourself, the ROI just hasn’t been there. I had almost given up Facebook for dead, but then I friended a bunch of people in my new department and it’s been a great way to build relationships real relationships that play out in Real Life with them.I read Rushkoff’s book recently as well, and while I felt he had wise things to say, I thought he was over-the-top with his warnings. I still think one can manage a life that includes connections to people we know online, rather than choose between programming and being programmed. But I absolutely respect the decisions of those, like you, who see the need to draw a line. I may be there someday myself.I still hope to meet up someday with you, maybe at one of those ASEE meetings we discussed a while back.

    I am a student from India. I tried it last year. Completely baennd social media, unsubscribed from useless mailing lists. I did it for five months. It removed anxiety in me. I have a lot of time. So I exercised, washed the clothes myself, had enough sleep, completed all the home works in time. That semester I have achieved the highest GPA of my college life. After 5 months, I went back to twitter and facebook, and found myself drawn back. I am not up to date with technology. I would have increased my contacts on a great scale. So, I started using them again. Now am not any more addicted to facebook or twitter, but visit them less frequently 3-4 times a day and even more sometimes, but only after my work is done
