Harvey Pekar

I attended a conversation with comic book writer Harvey Pekar yesterday evening.

Chatting with fans.

Pekar is best known for writing American Splendor an autobiographic series, which was adapted into a film called American Splendor where Pekar was played by Paul Giamatti

Pekar discussed how he got started and the Jewish graphic novel. And said he was writing a book about his thoughts on Israel, and expressed his disappoint with the state.

Pekar’s talk and conversation with Naomi Seidman was held at UMass Amherst and was sponsored by the Department of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies.
