Haspiel Talks about Harvey Pekar
Donwload The MP3 Here Earlier this week Harvey Pekar passed away. People have asked if I was going to do a tribute episode, but I think my first conversation with Deam Haspiel serves as the best tribute. Dean will be back in a new talk , but this 2006 talk spent a lot of time covering his first collaborations with Pekar, including putting him together with the people who shot the American Splendor Film . We discuss his first story he drew for Harvey and the graphic novel The Quitter, which created enough demand at Vertigo to start a whole new series of Pekar stories.
