HARVEY PEKAR INTERVIEW
JBooks has an audio interview with comic book legend Harvey Pekar discussing his childhood and Jewish identity.
Harvey Pekar is a true pioneer of comic books, writing the autobiographical American Splendor, a series of his mundane life. At one time, he was a regular guest on the Late Night with David Letterman. Always confrontational and hostile, Harvey was eventually banned from the show. The film adaptation of American Splendor was released in 2003 and became one of the best comic book movies ever made.
